Find out what your peers are saying about Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows vs. Veeam Cloud Connect and other solutions. Updated: November 2019.
378,570 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:
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.
The deployment is quite simple. Users are generally happy because of the familiarity they have with the features. The solution offers good transparency for the end-user.
The most valuable features are the fast replication and recovery of data.
The administration and management integrate with multiple solutions, not just with one or two environments, even if they're not VMware products.
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.
It would be helpful if the enterprise edition was more complete. It's not as complete as the enterprise plus edition is. For instance, in the enterprise version, we can only use one accelerator with the cloud provider. It means if I have my Cloud Connect, I cannot connect another site of mine with another cloud connect and use an accelerator of Veeam. They should change this.
The security of encrypted data could be better.
We were interested in investing hundreds of thousands of dollars in VMware. VMware right now is one of the biggest solutions in the world, in terms of the IT environment. But for Cloud Connect it's not. I think they need the cloud version to reach more customers, to enable the cloud version to be used by more people.
Pricing and Cost Advice
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.
