More Bacula Enterprise Pros »

"It has helped us transfer the solution in two days instead of working for a minimum of one week to ten days.""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.""Very flexible, all-in-one solution.""The whole replication aspect of the solution is excellent because it compresses the data so well.""The user interface is good and it is very easy to use.""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 most valuable feature is the ability to verify that backups are valid."

Cons
"Easier setup and configuration, perhaps including a GUI, would be an improvement.""Bacula needs a graphical user interface because, for administrators, the command-line interface is okay, but for the average user it is not very easy."

"I would like for them to develop the ability to fix the way it does backups. We can't pick a backup for one database. We have to do a backup on the whole Exchange VM. I'd like for them to change it to where we can do individual backups.""We try to compare Veeam with other solutions because we are the operations. Then we can give the answers for improvement which is the specific additional system features that other solutions provide.""Needs better integration with cloud service providers.""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.""I would like to have the capability of backing up a physical machine, as opposed to just a VM.""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."
