Veeam Backup & Replication Review

Its ease of use and simple UI are the most valuable features.

What is most valuable?

Its ease of use is the most valuable feature. It has a very simple UI.

How has it helped my organization?

Veeam is a very stable product. The ease of use and UI are some of its highlights. Learning this tool is very easy and you do not need any training classes.

What needs improvement?

Right now, replication it does in every 15 minutes. However, if it could do continuous replication or even bring it down to 5 minutes, then it would be great.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have used the first version and stopped using it for a while, due to many physical servers in our environment. I have been using the new version for almost a year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There were no stability issues that could not be resolved.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There were no scalability issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is excellent; they are very prompt and knowledgeable.

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

We were using another solution before this one. The reason we moved over to this solution was that we were only 30% virtualized, so we had to use a product that had backup physical servers.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was very straightforward and any technical person can do the initial setup.

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

Licensing is per CPU, so it depends on the number of physical CPUs.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Based on my previous experience with Veeam, I didn’t evaluate anything else.

What other advice do I have?

It is a very solid product with an easy UI. If you are 90% virtualized, then it is a great product.
