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.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
Its cost is high.I would like to have a built-in index searching ability of files/system files within the Rubrik interface to determine if a file or item exists, rather than just recovering it, and then doing a search for the file afterwards.Global management of multiple systems is lacking, as is reporting across multiple installed units.Improving PowerShell integration would greatly simplify Rubrik management.A singular system is needed to manage all of the clusters.It is an expensive product.It does not offer image-level backups for Hyper-V 2012.Needs integration with video CD (coming in the next release) and a multi-tenant GUI.

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