We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The most valuable feature is its consistency.The ability to clone backups.​I have everything I need in the backup or in the partition. ​It works with different types of partitions or different OSs.Stability is always good. I have used Acronis for 10 years now, if not more. I have never had a problem with availability, etc.It is a very fast and reliable backup, which requires less management and restores quickly.​The user interface (UI) is easy to use.It is fast and easy for an image-based backup across all platforms.

The most valuable feature is the instant restore option.The user interface is good.What I find most valuable about this solution, is that the user experience is very simple.The technical support is good.The really amazing feature about Veeam Agent is that when you're using the central deployment model, you can actually use the instant VM recovery feature, which is really a pain point that I find some days.The solution is very user-friendly and has an easy to use interface. We can manage it easily. It allows for a simple backup.The initial setup was straightforward. It's not complicated. It takes around half an hour to implement, but it depends on the performance of the server that you are installing the backup software on.It's most compatible with VMware. It can restore single files instead of having to restore the whole machine, once again leading to savings for the company.

Cons
This is not a feature-rich solution.I would like to see better centralized management, because I use it across multiple clients. To have a console that centrally manages them would be nice.I would ​change the GUI a little to make it a bit more interactive. It should have a slightly more updated look, not something which looks like it was designed five years ago despite the fact it is easy to follow and very appealing.​​It would be nice if it could support more types of storage: EMC, HPE, Veeam, etc.If there was a wizard that would lead you down a road, when creating a backup, that would probably be better than having to go online or call somebody to actually do a backup. It's not intuitive...I can't select a network location. I have to map a drive on the server, and then I have to select the mapped drive in order for it to put the backup out there.It would be nice to have it on the cloud platform without using third-party equipment.

We are currently waiting for the continuous backup process.I would like to be able to install Veeam directly to Linux instead of having to go through a Windows server.In the next version, I would like to see an increase in the locations online. I have found that other products have good pickup location.It would be much better if more applications were supported on the Linux side. For example, their agent for Windows not only can back up the Windows machine, but it can also back up Active Directory for granular restore, SQL servers, Exchange, Oracle, SharePoint, etc. When it comes to Linux, only Oracle databases are supported. There are workarounds, though.In terms of the physical environment, I'd like them to integrate it with other kinds of solutions. We don't just work with Microsoft or Linux, but other kinds of infrastructure data as well.It's scalable, but it's not scalable on every platform.Scalability, if you are talking about Linux, is good. However, if you need to backup more types of solutions or Unix systems, like HP/UX, AIX, etc., it's not compatible.It could use deduplication features.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Our licensing fees are on a yearly basis.​I like the pricing​, and that it is easy to use and has performed well. ​When it comes to elements like cost, I think it is the only backup solution which has perpetual licenses, whereby you buy the license once and for all.

The costing is very competitive.The solution is rather expensive and I think the price is too high.It's a subscription based license, which is started on a yearly basis. Currently the licensing is split between three editions: standard, enterprise, and enterprise plus. As long as you check the comparison between the additions and make sure that you have what you need, there are no extra costs with Veeam.Licensing costs are $300,000 USD yearly, and we pay for three years at a time.
