Veeam Backup & Replication Review

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

Valuable Features:

The ease of use is valuable.

Improvements to 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.

Room for Improvement:

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

Use of Solution:

I've used it for over six years.

Deployment Issues:

No issues encountered.

Stability Issues:

No issues encountered.

Scalability Issues:

No issues encountered.

Customer Service:

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.

Previous Solutions:

We previously used BackUp Exec.

Initial Setup:

It was straightforward.

Implementation Team:

We implemented it in-house.


Time is no longer wasted looking at continual backup failures.

Cost and Licensing Advice:

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

Other Solutions Considered:

  • BackupExec
  • ArcServe

Other Advice:

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.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We're a Reseller.
