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

Pros
The product has many valuable features for handling backup needs, including replication, live migration, and incremental disaster recovery.The ease of use of the solution is its most valuable feature. The interface is also excellent.This solution is stable.The initial setup was simple and easy. Anyone without prior experience can install, configure, and use it.The intuitive interface allows you to set up and perform backups and restores easily.Reverse Delta is Altaro proprietary backup deduplication technology. With Reverse Delta, the latest version of a file is always made available in its entirety, not as a delta file.We frequently use the granular restore option for when our users accidentally delete files or to recover emails from mailboxes. We have found that to be a must-have feature and it comes with the solution at no extra cost.We use the latest feature in Altaro called CDP (Continuous Data Protection) to back up our VMs as often as every five minutes. It allows us to make sure no data is accidentally deleted or overwritten.

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
Replication is not fast, the GUI could be more user-friendly, and technical support is lacking in Iran.The scalability of the solution is limited.The initial set up was complex, and I was not able to do the set up myself.Availability of physical server backup would be an added advantage.Migrating the physical through a backup and restore to a virtual environment would be very helpful.It would be nice to see a feature that backs up the host so that, in case of a server failure, an entire server could be restored all at once.

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.

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.
