Veeam Backup & Replication Review

We like the integration with vCenter and the reporting it provides.


What is most valuable?

  • Ease of use
  • Reporting
  • Great integration with vCenter
  • Dedupe abilities
  • No tape

How has it helped my organization?

It helps us to restore and backup our data, along with ease of use.

What needs improvement?

Archive to tape could be better, but the new version might do this, and generally it’s a great product. The landing disk cliff shares could be improved. I don’t believe that it supports it at this time. If you use the edit job function you can’t sort by VM product.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using the solution for about two years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No issues encountered.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It seems to be quite stable, no issues there.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues with scalability, and it seems to scale reasonably well.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

We haven't had to use it yet.

Technical Support:

We haven't had to use it yet.

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

We used various backup solutions including NetBackup.

How was the initial setup?

It was easy.

What about the implementation team?

We did it in-house.

What was our ROI?

I don't know, but we do like it.

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

Software can always be cheaper, but it's not prohibitively expensive. Veeam seems reasonable for what you get.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at a bunch of stuff, we thought it had the best integration with VMware. Lots of people liked it, and we rely heavily on peer reviews, as well as talking to colleagues and other people we know.

What other advice do I have?

I would advise you to buy it.
