Cons
"They could be more customer-friendly.""The integration needs improvement.""The solution is pretty stable right now, however, we believe that the solution could be made to be even more stable.""There isn't much to improve. They just need to follow the trend or the development of other Linux products. Follow in terms of making the product compatible with new versions of Linux. They just need to include as many versions for Linux as possible."

More Veeam Agent for Linux Cons »

"It's a great product, but only if you have everything virtualized.""Veeam Backup is not enhanced. There aren't any enhancements yet and they are still using traditional methods for snapshots and to perform the backup, like many other vendors. Another improvement would be simplifying and integrating their software.""I like the Acronis backup solutions on the block-based part of backups. That is a functionality that Veeam does not provide.""The implementation of the features can be improved. Currently, there is no segregation of duty. Normally, any backup software or client service software is implemented in a way where one person is responsible for the implementation of the server, and one is responsible for the client, but Veeam Backup & Replication is not implemented in that way. Therefore, restores don't work like that. The backup guys have to do the restores, which is not a good thing. Its pricing should also be improved. It is quite expensive.""We would like to see support for some additional storage systems.""There is some complexity we have experienced when using the solution that should be simplified.""When you want to restore files, you first need to restore the machine, and then you have to mount it, and then restore the files.""The price is an issue. If one has a large number of servers, say... 100-plus, and wishes to add more, an exhausted budget may hinder this ability."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Licensing costs are monthly.""Price-wise it's good."

More Veeam Agent for Linux Pricing and Cost Advice »

"When I did a tech refresh, we took out a subscription for the coming five years.""It's the market price. It isn't expensive, nor is it cheap.""We spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on Veeam each year, although it is not expensive for what we get.""The price of the solution could be lower.""It is more expensive than other solutions.""This solution requires a license and the organizations I was involved in were using an enterprise license.""The price of the solution could improve when comparing it to competitors. The market is very competitive and they should have some discounts or special offers.""The price of Veeam Backup and Replication is expensive."
