Veeam Backup & Replication Review

We previously used Symantec Backup Exec, it was cumbersome, didn’t handle our virtual machines, and kept us on tape backups.


What is most valuable?

The ability to manage backups from any machine from one location.

How has it helped my organization?

We’ve taken the human out of the equation when it comes to our backups. This means backups run when they should, like they should.

What needs improvement?

None since the release of endpoint backup management.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using it for over two years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues encountered.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

It's wonderful - 10/10.

Technical Support:

It's wonderful - 10/10.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used Symantec Backup Exec, it was cumbersome, didn’t handle our virtual machines, and kept us on tape backups.

How was the initial setup?

Straightforward, with a very intuitive setup and layout.

What about the implementation team?

We did it in-house.

What was our ROI?

Given this is Backup & Replication, the ROI is similar to that of an insurance plan - priceless when needed, but no monetary benefit until such time. Still worth every penny for the peace of mind.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No other options were evaluated.

What other advice do I have?

Go for it, you’ll never regret it.

This is definitely one of the better products out there. We have symantec still but only for Exchange which I hope to change with Endpoint Backup now.

We implemented Endpoint Backup on our Exchange server (and the rest of our physical servers--the last holdouts) a few weeks ago and LOVE it. It's so nice to be rid of the tape backups and take us humans out of the equation in regards to our data backup and replication (onsite and offsite backups).
