Physical workload protection and item level recovery for Linux-based systems.
I've used it for six years.
Never. This is the strength of the product.
Some minor issues such as feature bugs. They have all been solved by a support call or through a product update.
Before 6.0, yes, as the product was monolithic and didn't scale well. After 6.0, they changed the design to a scale-out design that fits any size. I haven't yet reached the limit of the product.
8/10 as they are pretty reactive and can engage in cross-vendor problem resolution, which is is not the way with all their competitors. Regarding the fact it is a backup solution, this is a crucial point for me.
They were either too slow or too buggy to have a reliable backup solution.
It was straightforward, and this is the DNA of this product. It is very simple to install and to operate.
It was installed in-house within a few hours. I now work for a vendor and I have installed the product for hundreds of customers.
At the time I was a customer, it took something like three months because of a big storage system outage. Moreover, their pricing is based on the number of CPU sockets in your virtualization environment. I would even say that the longer you use the product, the cheaper it becomes. This is due to the core density of newer CPUs - we aren't buying more CPUs, just CPUs with more cores.
I think enterprise level is a good way to go if you don't have 3PAR or NetApp storage in-house; otherwise, switch to Enterprise Plus to have the best-in-class backup solution at the moment.
We compared our existing solutions to Veeam.
Just give it a try. Download the product, install-it and test it. The best way to know what it can do and what it can't is to test it through a proof of concept.
