Veeam Backup & Replication Review

Tape support is still not performing as expected; Veeam relates to backup as a repository instead of long term archive.


Valuable Features:

I started working with Veeam because of its replication capabilities. Later on when version 7 was released, with the addition of the tape support, I started migrating to pure Veeam environments.

Room for Improvement:

Tape support is still not performing as expected (at least for my opinion) as Veeam relates to tape backup as a repository instead of a long term archive. Schedule options can be improved.

Use of Solution:

Almost two years.

Deployment Issues:

No but you need to pay attention to small things that make a big difference. 

Stability Issues:

Usually it runs very smoothly.

Scalability Issues:

No, I have one rule regarding Veeam, use proxy!

Previous Solutions:

I used to work with Symantec backup exec / System recovery, IBM FastBack and Arcserve each one of them has its strength and weaknesses. The reason I switched to Veeam was the native support for virtual environments.

Initial Setup:

Pretty straightforward and intuitive.

Implementation Team:

I'm an integrator so I can't rate myself.

Other Solutions Considered:

I've tested CA ARCserve High Availability (formally XoSoft) IBM FastBack (formally FilesX) and Double-Take Availability.
