Veeam Backup & Replication Review

Good product but it's not suitable for a virtual environment.

Valuable Features

Exchange and File server backup are valuable features.

Improvements to My Organization

Versions of backup files helped us to recover files as per users requirement.

Room for Improvement

I've used it for seven years.

Previous Solutions

We previously used the Windows backup solution and we changed to Tivoli for automated backups and multiple copies of backup sets to comply with central bank policy to keep the backup data offsite and out of the country.

Initial Setup

Initial set up was bit complicated. Policy definition is not easy.

Implementation Team

We used a vendor team whose expertise was 2/10.


It's not 100%.

Other Solutions Considered

No. We did not do an evaluation.

Other Advice

Good product but not it's suitable for a virtual environment.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Just surprised at your comment:
Veeam is only for Virtual environnement, not physical. What did you feel wasn't suitable?

You mention Tivoli in your comment. Was the review for Tivoli and not Veeam? :)

I am also surprised by this comment. Veeam is great for virtual environements. We have many financial customers that use and love it.
