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.The solution is very simple. Management of the platform is so simple that we don't need to have any training to deploy this solution.The ease of use for the graphical interface and the ease of installation are the most valuable features of this solution.The Veeam Backup and Replication Suite is very user-friendly.

Cons

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.In new releases, I hope they can support Oracle cloud.
