Comparing Cohesity vs Commvault

logo

Commvault

Minimize Risk from Cyber Attack

icon

Converged, purpose-built solution with no single point of failure: Functions are distributed across each node or container instance in the case of aaS control plane.

icon

Windows-based single point of failure: CommServe is a critical component, it runs only on Windows Server, and is a single point of failure (including possible metadata loss, resulting in unusable backups).

icon

Secure, single and simple UI across all services: Web based control plane is simple to use, can administer all jobs and consumption models including our aaS offerings and is built from the ground up to be secure.

icon

Multiple UIs required: Command Center and legacy, Java based CommCell Console (for advanced tasks). Inconsistent experience and output across interfaces.

icon

Frequent, reliable backups: Automatically scheduled and parallelized backups with non-disruptive upgrades.

icon

Higher risk of data loss: Lower uptime/resiliency with long backups and extended upgrade windows can lead to less frequent backups and missed backups, requiring frustrating and time-consuming troubleshooting

icon

Strict access control: Quorum support for multi-person concurrence on sensitive actions

icon

Greater risk of rogue actions: No quorum controls to prevent unilateral admin action, such as maliciously exporting data

Reduce Downtime with Rapid Recovery

icon

React rapidly to attacks: Get attack alerts and respond to them via Palo Alto or Cisco SOAR products

icon

Delayed response: Incident response and resolution not fully coordinated between ITOps and SecOps teams.

icon

Restore production and populate recovery sandboxes faster: Parallelized restores and scalable near instant restore of VMs and databases

icon

Slower recovery: Limited scale of live mounts for virtual machines, slower recovery due to snapshot consolidation and insufficiently parallelized restore

icon

Get back to business fast: Resume NAS file sharing immediately without restore and/or rapidly restore to primary storage

icon

Files offline longer: Cannot immediately put file shares online; slow restore to primary

icon

Production grade I/O reliability: Protected data and uninterrupted instant recovery

icon

Risk of crash: VMs cannot stay mounted through a MediaAgent loss or reboot

Maximize Data Value

icon

Speed data re-use: Rapid restore provides data immediately for dev/test or analytics

icon

Slow and limited access to data: Inefficient live mount snapshots can bring up only a few VMs or databases

icon

App Marketplace: Delivers valuable and actionable insights through both 3rd-party and Cohesity apps and integrations

icon

Difficult to get value from data: No app marketplace: comparable functionality requires complex product integrations with data copies and separate environments.

icon

Safely accelerate analytics: Mask PII internally (not exposed on network) while preserving cross-table relationships

icon

Potential PII exposure: Rudimentary internal masking destroys relationships: not useful for analytics

icon

Single secure data management platform: Enable multiple use cases including file & object services, DR and copy data management with a reduced attack surface

icon

Just a backup: Traditional single-purpose architecture requires additional silos to address use cases beyond backup and recovery

Lower TCO

icon

Free up staff time: Modern, easy, and powerful management with a single UI and automated optimization, non-disruptive upgrades and easy patch management

icon

Labor intensive: Legacy architecture requires multiple UIs and frequent monitoring and troubleshooting with painful patch and upgrade management

icon

> 30% more space efficient than Commvault including across cloud: Typical for most workloads due to superior sliding-window dedupe, Zstd compression1

icon

And yet > 43% more space required than Cohesity: Inefficient, large fixed block deduplication (128k on-prem and 512k in cloud), limited dedupe across source types

icon

Efficient network utilization: Lower network bandwidth utilization for replication/archive, reduces cost of using cloud-based backup targets.

icon

Higher network traffic: Periodic full backups and inefficient deduplication means more bandwidth usage especially when moving data to the cloud.
