Veeam Backup & Replication Review

It slots in with other virtualization products and we no longer spend time looking at continual backup failures.

What is most valuable?

The ease of use is valuable.

How has it helped my organization?

I've been an end user and deployer of this software as a consultant. It's easy to implement, and easy to spot any issues and resolve them. It slots in great with other virtualization products.

What needs improvement?

Not sure, but maybe the weakest area is around integration with tape libraries at times.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for over six 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?

They have some of the best vendor support around. You can get through to an actual engineer who can help you rather than them saying "can you log it with us, send us some logs" and "we need to escalate it" like many do.

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

We previously used BackUp Exec.

How was the initial setup?

It was straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented it in-house.

What was our ROI?

Time is no longer wasted looking at continual backup failures.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Speak to your preferred VAR, and wait until the ends of quarters for some great deals.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

  • BackupExec
  • ArcServe

What other advice do I have?

Read the online documentation as it's easy to follow, watch the videos of the features, and, yes, it's really that easy to use.
