Comparing ManageEngine RecoveryManager Plus with Commvault Active Directory iDataAgent

Active Directory disasters can happen in any form - a GPO might be deleted that stops users from logging in, an OU that contains countless users could be deleted, or a domain controller might crash. This necessitates that the AD backup and recovery solution used must be equipped to deal with any type of disaster

ManageEngine RecoveryManager Plus and Commvault Active Directory iDataAgent aim to address this particular problem. The following table compares the backup and restoration capabilities of these products.

Conclusion

From the above comparison, it is clear that RecoveryManager Plus clearly trumps Commvault iDataAgent when it comes to backing up and restoring your Active Directory environment. GPOs play a very vital role in Active Directory administration and the absence of a quick way to restore deleted GPOs makes RecoveryManager Plus better than Commvault iDataAgent. In addition, with the ability to backup and restore extended schema attributes, RecoveryManager Plus presents itself as a superior alternative.
