There are a lot of backup apps out there. Which ones are best? That really is a matter of opinion. And here are a few opinions about some of the better backup apps around, and in no particular order.
6. CommVault Simpana
CommVault has been making quite some headway of late.
"CommVault appears to be the fastest growing backup vendor and has OEM deals with Dell, HDS and NetApp," said Simpson.
The company has been getting a lot of mileage by attacking the "legacy" nature of many of the above tools. As they have been around for years, some struggle to deal with modern cloud and virtualized environments (although the latest versions go a long way towards remedying that issue). CommVault campaigns for users to start afresh with its Simpana 9, and it has even included tools built into the software to ease the switch from Symantec or IBM.
