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

Pros
I have found that the backups are usually very successful.We can configure the notifications themselves so that the right people get the notifications. This is very helpful. It allows key stakeholders to know if backups have happened and to remind each other to check the backups if something is not right.

More BackupAssist Pros »

The most valuable feature is the ability to verify that backups are valid.Features with the most value are Instant VM Recovery, SQL Explorer and Exchange Explorer.Before Veeam, we had backup infrastructure sprawl. Veeam was able to reduce our overall backup windows while reducing our dedicated backup infrastructure.Vendor integration for many of the enterprise features have allowed for us to have greater performance from our storage vendors further improving on our commitments to protect our clients' data.The user interface is good and it is very easy to use.The whole replication aspect of the solution is excellent because it compresses the data so well.Very flexible, all-in-one solution.We get a lot of features with Veeam and we are happy to use this solution. After shutdown, the servers here automatically turn off and Veeam is keeping up all this. It's tension free work.

Cons
In the future I would like to see more support for Linux.The solution needs a dashboard or some form of central control from which you can manage all backups.

More BackupAssist Cons »

We would like to see support for some additional storage systems.Physical backup is always where room for improvement could be but Veeam has always stated they are not going in that direction.Multithreading of health check process: This can take too much time to process on large jobs and/or large VMs.Additional executive summary reports for the entire infrastructure would be a nice to have.One challenge that we have encountered was on the long-term retention of data. Be sure to look into a dedicated deduplication appliance.I would like to have the capability of backing up a physical machine, as opposed to just a VM.It would be ideal if users could know that their data is backed up and have some security functionality where you can actually use the backup to spin up a new cluster and take it from there.Needs better integration with cloud service providers.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The product pricing here in Zimbabwe is good, I cannot complain.There's a yearly licensing cost. The costs might be around $2000 USD annually.

Veeam is more reasonably priced than some competing products.We have increased our scalability while being able to free up senior resources from recovery activities. I estimate our overall savings to about $20,000 per year.The price of Veeam is much lower than the IBM solution.The product is competitively priced.The pricing is good and affordable.The price is slightly higher than its competitors.The price is great. It's software related, and I know that might be a good thing because it's a cheap solution to buy and we have been looking for a program for backup and they fit the bill.I would suggest to others that they buy the full license when purchasing this solution.
