Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The deduplication is the most valuable feature because it helps to control the overhead.""I would say flexibility is the most important feature of the product. The performance and speed are the best on the market."

"It's not complex to replicate and back up the system.""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 ease of use.""It's relatively easy to use and the ability to recover in a short period of time has been great.""The replication feature has proven to be the most valuable feature for us.""We have evaluated other solutions but Veeam is the best for virtualization.""The most valuable feature is the continuous backup.""While I do not recall whether the latest version is 10.0 or 11.0 I do know that it allows one to make a back up repository that is very scalable and simple."

Cons
"As a new product, there are some things that still need to improve a bit as it matures.""There is always room for improvement. The compression ratio should be improved as well as the efficiency."

"Scalability, as well as licensing costs, need to be improved.""I have found that the reporting could improve in its structure.""When you want to restore files, you first need to restore the machine, and then you have to mount it, and then restore the files.""The Cloud version is not ready, they need maturity and ease of deployment in terms of management.""I like the Acronis backup solutions on the block-based part of backups. That is a functionality that Veeam does not provide.""The cloud part of it can be improved. There should be an option for Veeam in your own cloud, as compared to the Veeam cloud offering that's currently there. The rest of it is easy.""Veeam Backup Replication has agents for Linux, but they are not supporting Cluster Shared Volumes. It would be great to have agents for Linux be cluster-aware, just like the Windows agents. That's the main pain point. In addition, we should be able to handle the automation of Oracle backups from the backup server. We should be able to schedule, control, and deploy them from the backup server rather than relying on scripts and/or the system you are backing up to perform the backup. Currently, we install the plug-in inside Oracle VMs and then use crontabs to handle the task schedule on each machine for scheduling the backups. Veeam Backup Replication should also support the automation of Nutanix backups from the backup server, not from the proxy. The other not so major thing is that they don't support legacy systems because Veeam is a new company. It is not as old as other companies. They don't support physical workloads that are really old, which a major challenge, but they do have a point. Legacy systems should be virtualized, and if they're virtualized, then the backup is not an issue with Veeam, but some customers like the physical setup, and they don't want to have it virtual.""Some of the best practice documentation could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The licensing costs and pricing model are based on capacity and the license is easy to upgrade."

More Dell EMC PowerProtect Data Manager Pricing and Cost Advice »

"We spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on Veeam each year, although it is not expensive for what we get.""The price of the solution could improve when comparing it to competitors. The market is very competitive and they should have some discounts or special offers.""It is relatively cheap.""Overall, I'm not happy with the pricing. The price could be improved. Every year, most vendors try to increase the price. It says it's being upgraded, but there's no improvement. The product stays the same, but the licensing costs are increasing.""It is always nice to get products cheaper. Technically, it saves you a lot of money. If you wanted to buy the same functionality out of vSphere, you would spend thousands to essentially get the same functionality.""When it comes to pricing for a backup solution for data centers, you do not care about the price. We just care about the service and want it to be reliable. In terms of subscription, it really makes sense. When you want to use all the functionalities it is good that Veeam did the subscription-based model, this is what gives it the most strength on the price.""This is not an expensive solution. It's on the cheaper side.""We purchase a license annually."
