Veeam Backup & Replication Review

It is very simple and fast to power-on a replicated server, making it come online again

What is most valuable?

Replication (fast recovery for replicated servers).

How has it helped my organization?

It has decreased downtime issues. By using replication, we decreased our downtime for crashed servers and having other service/system issues.

It is very simple and fast to power-on a replicated server, making it come online again.

What needs improvement?

I'm not sure if this option is available in new versions. But different types of licenses could not be used on the same Veeam server in the past, it would be good to be able to use mixed types of licenses in the same server.

For how long have I used the solution?

About four years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No, it is working nice and smooth.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No, because we are using this product in a small environment.

How are customer service and technical support?

We do not encounter many problems with the product, but we do get an instant response when needed.

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

We are still using a different product for backup. Veeam is being used for replication only.

How was the initial setup?

Since it was a single server setup, it was easy to install and configure.

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

It is acceptable for us because we having been using it for approximately four years. However, I think for new buyers/customers it may be cheaper than other products.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Another product is being used for backup. We did a PoC with Veeam, then bought it.

What other advice do I have?

It is easy, with many features, (I think) it is cheaper. Very useful for virtual environments.
