Veeam Backup & Replication Review

It's provided us with a file-level recovery option and it's stable, efficient, and flexible.

Valuable Features

The file-level recovery option has filled a gap in our system.

Room for Improvement

  • Remote management console
  • Physical server backups

Use of Solution

I've used it for about three or so years.

Deployment Issues

No issues encountered.

Stability Issues

The product has been 100% stable, but there are a few issues with backup jobs.

Scalability Issues

No issues yet.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

I've not had to contact customer service.

Technical Support:

They have very efficient, problem-solving chaps.

Previous Solutions

I was using Symantec, but it's not as flexible as Veeam if you talk about immediate recovery of file or a whole VM.

Initial Setup

It's as simple as installing MS Office.

Implementation Team

I was previously working as a project engineer with my company, implementing Veeam at many clients. I am now working as a Resident Engineer and IT Consultant outsourced from my original employer (implementation vendor). Both ways I have had good experiences with Veeam.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Don’t waste your money on Symantec or other tools. Buy a license once for Veeam as it's a lifetime one and the support license can be renewed, as required, on a yearly basis.

Other Solutions Considered

We also looked at Symantec Backup Exec.

Other Advice

Just keep in mind its functionality because, as of now, it is limited to VMs. It's taking backup of physical machines as well, but only on a clone level.
