Veeam Backup & Replication Review

Off-​site replication was good and gave us a reliable backup, but direct SAN-to-SAN replication needs improvement.


Valuable Features

Off-site replication was good.

Improvements to My Organization

We were struggling with having software that would give us reliable backup and when we implemented the Veeam solution, it solved the problem for us.

Room for Improvement

Direct SAN to SAN replication – it didn’t integrate well with the 3PAR SAN that we had.

Use of Solution

I've used it for about four years.

Deployment Issues

No issues – easy deployment.

Stability Issues

No issues with stability.

Scalability Issues

No issues – it scaled to our needs.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

Never had to use them – that’s a good sign.

Technical Support:

Never had to use them – that’s a good sign.

Previous Solutions

We were using Comvault for part of our backups and when Comvault allowed their SAN snapshotting we switched it all over.

Other Solutions Considered

We looked at a couple but it was cheaper to just go with Comvault across the board and pay one fee.

Other Advice

Do a live demo or trial – make sure it’s a good fit for what you need.

This isn't a really informed post. Veeam doesn't have SAN to SAN replication. In V8 of the product they do integrate with HP 3PAR for Direct SAN backups. You can then setup a replication job to another site or veeam server.

Generally all San to San back ups will experience problems with all vendors. Make you life easier move to Exablox NAS solutions.
