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.
