"Perfect for backup and replication!!"

What do you like best?

What caught my attention was the speed ability to back up files especially when you are in a hurry or trying to get things done on timely manner is very superb! Replicating and recovering of data amazes me as well as Veeam can do it in short period of time.

What do you dislike?

To be honest, I never had any serious complain or problems using veeam as it was very easy to manage. The only disadvantage I can think of would be the cost but it's not really a negative thing because I'm telling you paying that cost is very much worth it as you can do it alot faster than other software

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Well if you want to get things done efficiently and less time consuming then this would be the best software to use because it was 3x faster or maybe even more compare to others.

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

As a human resource specialist, my job is very time consuming so with veeam I was able to backup and restore or sometimes replicate files that are needed to get my job done without wasting too much time and energy.

"The best backup product I've ever used"

What do you like best?

We were shown Veeam right from the moment we fully virtualised with VMWare. We already had a backup to disk / image based solution with Physical machines, but that didn't support virtualised environments. I love how simple Veeam was to start using, and it's never caused me a problem with lost recovery points or corruption - touch wood. And that's something I've had in the past from other solutions. Instant VM Recovery is also amazing, I love how you can spin up a full VM from a backup point

What do you dislike?

I only have 2 real dislikes - number 1, performance with NAS boxes has always been a bottleneck. With physical machines backing up to the same NAS, we could get initial full backups done quicker. Number 2 - excluding certain folders from the backup is either very tricky, or not possible. As it seemingly backs up the Vdisks, I don't believe I can restrict backups from specific folders, at least if I can, I've not seen how.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure you spec up your repository (backup hardware/appliance) correctly to ensure you get the desired throughput with full backups and instant VM restores. If you are backing up 2012R2 VM's and use deduplication, be aware your incremental backups will grow once dedup schedules start changing the disk blocks.

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

We are using VEEAM for both traditional daily backups, incrementals and fulls, with different schedules to suit the workload, and backup copies, both to secondary storage and cloud backups. This satisfies all our requirements in terms of backup strategy, and simplifies DR.

"Backup all work loads and migration to new DC using replication tool"

What do you like best?

Able to seed replicas that we are using to migrated to a new hosting platform in a new data center in a different state. It's a powerful tool that is easy to setup and maintain.

What do you dislike?

There are some complexities within the tool to likely meet unique use cases for their user base. But for those that only need the out-of-the-box functionality, the complexity and options can get in the way.

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

Protection of all workloads to include replication for a migration to a new data center. Also plan to use the replication feature to assist in the event of a DR scenario.

"Does one thing really well"

What do you like best?

Veeam VBR is very simple - given the right environment you can go from no backups to complete protection in a very short amount of time.

What do you dislike?

The simplicity is double-edged, and means that it lacks power in terms of configuration options. It works very well in a strictly VMware and Windows environment - once you venture outside of that things begin to get rocky.

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

We have a highly virtualized environment based upon VMware, including multiple sites around the globe. We wanted a tool that was simple to use and that we could standardize across all of our environments.

"The best virtualisation backup software"

What do you like best?

Instant recovery is just a stroke of genius, power on the VM directly from the backup file, then vMotion the VM live whilst its up making restoring a time critical VM very fast and easy.

What do you dislike?

Surebackup, great idea, but has far too many things that can cause it to error such as firewalls on public profiles and windows updates waiting to be installed.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you use VMware, veeam has to be at the top of the list, with so many features that are lacking in other products highly recommend it

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

Use it for all of our backups for virtual servers and also offsite backup to cloud. also customers of ours we use and recommend it as there really isn't any other product ive seen that has more features and is as reliable on backups.
