"Gold Standard For Backups"

What do you like best?

The software seamless integrates with all enterprise grade hyper-visors such as VMware, Hyper-V, and more being added every year. The storage integrations are also growing each year, as the hardware storage snapshot integrations make backups even faster and less impactful on production networks.

Being able to use a singular backup software for workstation backups, virtual machine backups, replication jobs, Office 365 backups, as well as off-site copies makes this a near all-in-one suite of backup capabilities.

Best feature by far is the Enterprise Manager, when configured properly allows fellow employees and teammates the capability to self-service provide themselves file restorations.

What do you dislike?

Some of the word choices inside of the application for restorations can be confusing to help desk staff.

The licensing of this software can be quite convoluted, as items are rated on a points system.

Consistency across the various backup endpoints is sometimes lacking. We utilized VMWare vCloud Director, and this product compatibility compared to ESXi or Hyper-V is incredibly lacking.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Start with the base product, and grow into the rest of the suite.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Daily backups of all production data should be the norm, and Veeam provides this capability via smooth working software. Being able to backup production workloads of all kinds, cloud, on-prem, Office 365, and workstations.

"Best tool for Backup replication and monitoring"

What do you like best?

Very easy to set up and manage. Just follow their documents and set up without spending on consulting.

Reporting in the availability suit is very good which provides the report for schedules to get the future trends of the data.

What do you dislike?

Tool is not robust. This will not suit for enterprise customers. Best suitable for Small and medium.

Offsite Backup(GFS) backup file creation process takes lot of time to merge and create a long term retention. which will leads to not having offsite backup for few days in the process of Processing and merging the Backup copy job.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Best in market for small and medium environment for your Backup and monitoring

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Backup, DR and MOnitoring the VM

"Backing up software with extra features"

What do you like best?

Veeam is brilliant, the best part of Veeam is the backup & replication, being able to transfer live virtual machines from one host to another, that's just what we needed

What do you dislike?

the licensing costs for the extra features are quite a cost which you have to pay every year if you want to keep those features

Recommendations to others considering the product:

if your looking for something that does everything you want to do and move i'd pick Veeam the free package is also really good value.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we've recently gone through a whole network infrastructure refresh, replacing 20 Hosts down to just 3 Hosts, Veeam has been brilliant for that, I was able to migrate the VM's from old of the old Hosts to the new Hosts without any issues.
