Veeam Backup & Replication Review

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

Valuable Features

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

Improvements to My Organization

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

Room for 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.

Use of Solution

We have been using the solution for about two years.

Deployment Issues

No issues encountered.

Stability Issues

It seems to be quite stable, no issues there.

Scalability Issues

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

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.

Previous Solutions

We used various backup solutions including NetBackup.

Initial Setup

It was easy.

Implementation Team

We did it in-house.


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

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

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

Other Solutions Considered

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.

Other Advice

I would advise you to buy it.
