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.
I love Veeam because it is very easy to work with.
The user interface is good. It provides a lot of information.
Technical support is good. They're very responsive. It depends on the timezone responding, but I usually get a response within three hours of creating a ticket.
The interface of this solution is quite good.
A full-featured option for managing virtual machines with an instant recovery feature.
I like working on the Azure platform.
Application awareness is very good and the speed of this solution is good.
The initial setup was straightforward. It was very easy. Deployment only took about one hour with configuration and everything considered.
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.
It is not always easy to update this solution to the newer version, so the update process needs to be improved.
The predictability of the solution needs improvement. Sometimes, if it's doing something at the back end, it may go slow. Today, the backup completion took four hours, but sometimes it can do the backup in 30 minutes or an hour. With solutions like NetBackup, I can predict to a much higher degree of certainty how long something will take to complete.
I've found a lot of difficulties on the initial setup and especially in terms of credentials. We really need a Window OS. It doesn't like the domain admin account. it's a primary permission issue.
An area that this solution could be improved would be with the licensing.
Updating and configuration can sometimes be a little bit of a hassel, but once you know the product better it is easy to use.
I am not very impressed by the technical support I received when I had an issue.
The stability of this solution needs to be improved.
Maybe in the future, they could do something better with the user interface and the performance, but so far it's a really good, efficient solution.
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.
We purchased a three-year license, and I think that the prices are ok.
There are costs in addition to the standard licensing fees, and pricing can be a disadvantage or a weakness for this solution.
Pricing is based on license packaging and duration. Longer term licenses are less per year and license packages also offer a discount.
Our licensing fees are on a yearly basis.
