Commvault license is known as a comprehensive support and recovery solution, or in other words, a comprehensive data protection solution. Instead of using various separate and dedicated products and solutions such as backing up virtual machines, backing up data from databases, information archives, etc. Commvault software can be used to meet all requirements in the field of data protection.
For many years, Commvault’s solution has received a high score in the reviews of various reputable institutions such as Gartner, IDC and Forrester, and it is known as the superior product compared to other backup and recovery solutions.

Synchronize operational data in another location
One of the prominent features of Commvault software is the Live Sync feature, which provides the ability to replicate various data, including virtual machines and databases, to other sites. With the help of this feature, a kind of CDP between two or more data centers with favorable RPOs can be set up with the help of Commvault.
Commvault software is compatible with all the world’s best processing hardware and has the necessary libraries to support Hardware Snapshot.
Snapshot-based backup capability
One of the practical features of this licensed software is the possibility of backing up clients through Hardware Snapshot. Of course, it should be noted that this software has the necessary libraries to communicate with APIs of a large volume of conventional storage hardware, which is its strength compared to other backup software. This feature is very important in two areas.
The first case is taking backups from clients without involving them during the backup period. In this way, there will be no burden on the client and backup will be done without Service Disruption.
The second point about this feature is the ability to attach and online various data such as virtual machines and databases from backups without the need to restore. In this way, without the volume of data having any importance, recovery is done on another server called Proxy within a few minutes.
Deduplication and Compression feature
The amount of information in data centers is increasing day by day and the need to back them up and long-term storage and archiving of this information is mandatory. Therefore, the storage equipment associated with the backup infrastructure will be filled with duplicate data that may need to be stored for months or perhaps years. Today, advanced storage equipment such as EMC DataDomain avoids storing duplicate data with the help of Deduplication and Compression, and this makes the space of storage equipment to be used more optimally.
On the other hand, due to not spending time to save this duplicate information, it can be said that the backup time is also reduced and the volume of traffic is moved much less. But in order to achieve these features, organizations must use expensive equipment that provides this feature. The licensed Commvault software also supports Deduplication and Compression features. This issue makes it no longer necessary to provide expensive hardware for the useful use of the storage infrastructure, as well as reducing the backup time and traffic volume, and this feature is integrated on all Commvault supported storage systems. And it is centrally controlled.
