Find out what your peers are saying about N2WS Cloud Protection Manager vs. Veeam Agent for Linux and other solutions. Updated: November 2019.
383,162 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Provides easy, one-click functionality and flexible backup policies and schedules for AWS workloads.
The recovery time is fantastic and proven. Also, by providing a simple interface, the solution lowers the cost.
The backup and recovery are the most valuable features. So, our developers can work with confidence.
The most valuable feature is the instant restore option.
The user interface is good.
What I find most valuable about this solution, is that the user experience is very simple.
The technical support is good.
The really amazing feature about Veeam Agent is that when you're using the central deployment model, you can actually use the instant VM recovery feature, which is really a pain point that I find some days.
The solution is very user-friendly and has an easy to use interface. We can manage it easily. It allows for a simple backup.
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.
Additional features I would like to see are the ability to restore to different vendors, AWS and Azure, and/or the ability or take the information out of the AWS cloud.
More documentation would be helpful, especially some step-by-step documents for recovery scenarios.
The UI is a little dated and hard to use. Some of the buttons are a bit small. You have to go into the menu to get the settings you want.
We are currently waiting for the continuous backup process.
I would like to be able to install Veeam directly to Linux instead of having to go through a Windows server.
In the next version, I would like to see an increase in the locations online. I have found that other products have good pickup location.
It would be much better if more applications were supported on the Linux side. For example, their agent for Windows not only can back up the Windows machine, but it can also back up Active Directory for granular restore, SQL servers, Exchange, Oracle, SharePoint, etc. When it comes to Linux, only Oracle databases are supported. There are workarounds, though.
In terms of the physical environment, I'd like them to integrate it with other kinds of solutions. We don't just work with Microsoft or Linux, but other kinds of infrastructure data as well.
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.
Pricing and Cost Advice
It has very good pricing per instance and comes with three options, for both small and large environments, to fit your needs.
It's very economical and worth the cost.
The purchasing process through the AWS Marketplace is easy. Just click the button.
The pricing and licensing on AWS is fine, because you can do it for smaller tiers depending on your number of instances, so it's not that scary.
AWS adds more features and offer things for free, or cheaply. Therefore, we will be evaluating AWS Data Lifecycle Manager, because it will probably do backups. Thus, make sure the product that you are using is competitive or adds more value than AWS.
The costing is very competitive.
The solution is rather expensive and I think the price is too high.
It's a subscription based license, which is started on a yearly basis. Currently the licensing is split between three editions: standard, enterprise, and enterprise plus. As long as you check the comparison between the additions and make sure that you have what you need, there are no extra costs with Veeam.
Licensing costs are $300,000 USD yearly, and we pay for three years at a time.
