Netapp NDMP licensing

Hi, we are looking at setting up a backup solution using Commvault.  The idea is to Snapvault our volumes from our local filers to a remote site then use Commvault to backup that Snapvaulted data.  

Couple of questions...

I understand I need an NDMP license to use Commvault with Snapvault.  Is this a license I need to buy for Commvault or is the NDMP license something I need to buy from Netapp and install on my filer?

When I restore is it down to the volume or the file level e.g. can I restore an indvidual VM file or would I need to restore the entire volume?

Can I restore directly to my local filer or is the restore done to the remote filer where the data has been snapvaulted to?

NDMP is protocol used  by Netapp, if you want to use CommVault you'll need to buy an NDMP module for CommVault to use it.

If you're doing VMs I would look at SMVI localy and snapmirror/snapvault remotely.  Commvault can be used for offsite as well and can also handle snapshot based backups
