With WAN acceleration, we send less data through our WAN lines. The reporting tool shows the status of the...
The solution's stability is high because it is derived from Spectrum Protect.
The solution is scalable and can be fitted for any customer.
Features with the most value are Instant VM Recovery, SQL Explorer and Exchange Explorer.
It is a good product, in regards to performance, as well as data protection.
Replication is the most valuable feature.
The ntegration of physical agents with our cloud connect service is positive.
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.
It most valuable features are seeding and faster backups over small links.
Veeam replication gives migration tools/options for VMware.
I would like more integration with security. We need to show the value of the product in regards to handling security. For example, how it handles current malware or viruses. IBM should be more proactive in this direction.
Physical backup is always where room for improvement could be but Veeam has always stated they are not going in that direction.
In Linux, I suggest you backup for a PostgreSQL database.
Cross-hypervisor replication can be improved.
Recovery speed is slow. Full recovery on large machines (1TB+) takes too long
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.
It could use DR features similar to Zerto.
Pricing and Cost Advice
If you need to extend it, it can be extended acting like a normal Spectrum Protect with a long archive.
The price offering from IBM is coming down because it is based on number of VM machines. So, IBM is coming to the market to show the added value of the product.
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.
Setup cost and licensing of Veeam are nothing to complain about when compared to similar products for enterprise backup recovery solutions.
I think the price is good when you choose the Essentials Suite, but when you buy a full featured version (for instance the Enterprise Plus) the price is a little bit expensive.
The price is a bit high. Licensing type is VMware friendly, so it is easy.
Since pricing is per socket, it is not expensive to add capacity as you go along.
The licensing is based on the number of cores you have in your ESX or Hyper-V environment.
Room for improvement is actually more in the way of licensing. The really good and useful features are in the Enterprise plus edition, and that one is really expensive.
The pricing and licensing is better than the competitors, but it could be better.
