Pros
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.

Cons
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.

They need more documentation, awareness, and assistance.It needs to be able to integrate with other emailing systems, like Linux.In the next release, it should have direct export to tape drive abilities and NDMP support.Technical support could be improved.The capacity storage is a challenge everywhere in the backup industry. The general feedback people are coming back to about this is that there is no deduplication based on it.It would be a great improvement to be able to recover cover a VM straight to on-prem.While there really is nothing wrong with the product some small improvements in the interface could make it even easier to use.The solution announced many features two years ago, and they still have not happened, so I would hope that the next release has these ready to go.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.

The cost is a bit on the high side.I'm not sure about the price, but I think it could be lower.The pricing is middle-of-the-road compared with competing products.I think it's a fair price. It's around $36 per user, so I think it's a fair price for our customers.
