Commvault software is an integrated data and information management solution, based on a common set of core functions or capabilities, namely, data collection, data movement, data storage, and data tracking. All functions share the same back-end technologies to deliver the unparalleled advantages and benefits of a truly holistic approach to protecting, managing, and accessing data.​​​ ​​


Every product and feature of Commvault software is tied to ContentStore, which is a portal to managed data. ContentStore is a virtual repository of managed data, no matter where that data physically resides. It is a portal to better user experience, turning passive data into active content.​

​​The core features of Commvault Software

Commvault software builds on the foundation of data protection products by integrating a rich feature set within a single software platform, using a policy-based approach. All functions share the same back-end technologies to deliver the unparalleled advantages and benefits of a truly holistic approach to protecting, managing and accessing data. ContentStore can seamlessly migrate and move data between cloud, web, mobile, and software devices.​

Security and Encryption

  • Commvault software securely protects data and information whether it's on-premises, at the edge, or in the cloud.
  • Protected data is ​efficiently stored in Content Store the virtual repository of all Commvault-managed information. Commvault security will reduce privacy breaches and exposure events, and reduce costs by efficiently securing stored data.

Disaster Recovery

  • Disaster Recovery types are defined by a customer's Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO).
  • Our software goes even further in preparing for a disaster. Using a predefined template for our Workflow engine, our customers can automate disaster recovery preparations.
  • Quickly copy critical files to a remote disaster recovery site.
  • Easily convert physical computers to virtual machines to simplify disaster recovery,
  • Or convert virtual machines from one type to another.
  • Automatically switch to a different pathway from the computer to the data storage location when backing up data, if a component of the primary pathway fails.


  • The deduplication integrated into Commvault software reduces backup times while saving on storage and network resources by identifying and eliminating duplicate blocks of data during backups.

Reporting and Insights

  • Access to actionable information is critical to informed decision-making and operational excellence.
  • Commvault software has robust, built-in reporting analytics, with operational reporting integrated with data management operations, eliminating the need for third-party reporting tools.
  • Many reports are available, each tailored to a particular aspect of data management. Report templates can be customized and are available to save, run, schedule, edit, and view.


  • Analyze data to gain insight into the underlying processes and discover meaningful patterns.
  • Commvault provides data analytics to view statistical information about data, web analytics to improve the usability and the content of a website or application, and data connectors to collect the information residing in various data repositories throughout the enterprise.

Retention and Compliance

  • User-defined retention policies allow customers to automatically organize, classify and store only the information that truly matters to their business - based on relevant and usable criteria - reducing the cost, complexity, and risk of storing massive volumes of data. As a result, the software reduces storage requirements, improves application performance, and helps them meet their business and compliance needs.

Business Process and Workflow Automation

  • Commvault makes it easy to automate routine, repetitive, or complex data management tasks.
  • Users can select from a catalog of pre-configured workflows or create their own using our intuitive graphical user interface — simplifying processes, saving time & money, and reducing the risk of human error.
  • Users can automate repetitive or complex manual operational tasks by bringing together sets of individual activities in a specific order or decision tree.
  • This helps customers ensure that their IT services are aligned with the needs of the business and can support its core processes, facilitating business change, transformation, and growth.
