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.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.It has helped us transfer the solution in two days instead of working for a minimum of one week to ten days.It helps with process restoration. With Veeam, we never had backup or restoration issues.Veeam is the gold standard for backup and recovery. The ease of use and reliability of this solution are real assets.

Cons
It was challenging to back up our Exchange database, which is one of the reasons we did not continue using this solution.The licensing model is not very flexible. Every time we upgrade our storage size, we need to upgrade the Avamar license.The client caches and deduplication system have a few problems.There are limitations when trying to use this solution with Hyper-V.

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.Needs better integration with cloud service providers.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.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.I would like to see a storage application in the next version of the product.

Pricing and Cost Advice
This solution is less expensive than Veeam for us, although it depends on the customer because we get a great discount.

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 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.Setup cost and licensing of Veeam are nothing to complain about when compared to similar products for enterprise backup recovery solutions.
