Validation and substantiation

1
Commvault Live Recovery is available for VMware vSphere virtual machines only. Restoring VMs with Live Recovery.
2
Restore of Windows data to Linux destination and vice versa is not supported. A standalone virtual machine, known as a File Recovery Enabler for Linux is required to enable Live File
Recovery from UNIX VMs. This scenario supports ext2, ext3, ext4, XFS, JFS, and Btrfs file systems only. Restores for Guest Files and Folders with VMware. In place restore of Linux guest files
in Hyper-V is not supported without agents. Restoring Guest Files and Folders (Microsoft Hyper-V).
3
Individual application agents are required for granular recovery. Storage snapshots must be taken by Commvault to enable recovery from other storage snapshots (for example, taken
manually, or with native snapshot scheduler) are not supported.
4
Commvault requires an Active Directory agent for any type of granular recovery. Deployment — Active Directory Agent. Commvault requires modifying the Active Directory schema to
enable a potentially insecure password recovery feature. Enabling Restore of Passwords.
5
Commvault requires multiple Exchange agents and add-ons for granular Exchange recovery. Overview - Microsoft Exchange Server Agents.
6
Commvault requires an agent for granular SQL recovery. Getting Started with the SQL Server Agent.
7
Commvault requires multiple agents for granular SharePoint recovery. Getting Started - SharePoint Server iDataAgent - Overview.
8
Commvault requires an agent for granular Oracle recovery. Getting Started with the Oracle Agent.
9
Self-service restore is only available for files and full VMs. Recovering Virtual Machines or VM Files Using the Web Console. Files can only be restored from the most recent backup of a
virtual machine. End User Operations for VM Lifecycle Management - Restore Files.
10
Log truncation for server applications require corresponding application specific agents.

Commvault’s datastore throttling does not datastore I/O into account while a backup job is running. Rather, it takes datastore placement into account when determining virtual
11

machine backup priority. VM Dispatch, Throttling, and Load Balancing. Manual network bandwidth throttling is available for certain scenarios but is not equivalent to datastore I/O
monitoring and automatic backup I/O throttling. Commvault has no visibility into the I/O pattern of a datastore or how it is impacted by a backup job. Network Bandwidth Throttling -
Overview.
12
Commvault supports creating a VM backup from a production storage snapshot on multiple storage vendor arrays. Supported Storage Arrays.

Commvault does not integrate their backup jobs with a managed service provider of the customers choosing (they do support a limited number of public cloud storage providers).
13

Commvault’s cloud services are more focused on moving workloads to public clouds and VM lifecycle management rather than enforcing the 3-2-1 rule. Cloud Storage - Support.
14
Commvault can encrypt backup files with AES 256 encryption but if the passphrase used to encrypt them is lost or forgotten, the files cannot be decrypted and thus cannot be
restored. Data Encryption. Encrypting Commvault backups causes the backups to become less compressible and is therefore recommended that compression not be enabled on
encrypted data. Data Encryption FAQ.
15
Commvault does not offer integrations with EMC Data Domain Boost or HPE StoreOnce Catalyst. They have no technical integration with Exagrid. Data Domain Boost Integrations.
Exagrid Technology Partners. HPE StoreOnce Datasheet.
16
Commvault DASH copies have WAN optimizations to reduce bandwidth requirements but do not have global cache mechanism to prevent transferring recurrent data, which is the key
capability that defines WAN Acceleration. Staging Backup Data Using DASH Copy.
17
Commvault does not provide an abstraction layer over individual storage devices to create a single virtual pool of backup storage for your backups. Storage Policy - Advanced.
18
Commvault Live Sync uses existing backup data to create and maintain a DR site for virtual machines. Live Sync updates destination VMs from subsequent incremental backups of the
source VMs. Granular recovery from Live Sync VMs is not possible and failover options are limited to test boot, planned/unplanned failover and failback. No orchestration or automation
capabilities are available. Using Live Sync to Support Disaster Recovery.
19
Commvault Live Sync does not provide replication capabilities outside of the customer’s own infrastructure. Configuring Live Sync.
20
Commvault Live Mount is used to temporarily boot a VM from a stored backup. There is no automated verification that the VM has booted, that the guest OS has started successfully,
that VMware tools has initiated successfully, or that any applications running on the recovered VM have started successfully. Recovering a Virtual Machine Using Live Mount.
21
Commvault Live Sync verifies that the destination VM is bootable but powering it on and then powering it off. There is no automated verification that the guest OS has started
successfully, that VMware tools has initiated successfully, or that any applications running on the recovered VM have started successfully. Live Sync Replication.
22
Commvault does not provide a supported, managed, and isolated virtual lab environment that is securely accessible from production environment for troubleshooting applications,
testing OS updates and software patches.
23
Commvault has very no monitoring of VM performance, alerting, or infrastructure capacity planning. A basic capacity planning module provides the user with a ‘days to full’ prediction
for backup storage. Capacity Planning.
