We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This solution gives me the full insight without having to use other products, metrics, or reporting tools."
"It has significantly reduced the amount of manual work required to manage your backup operations. We're going from an on-prem to a non-on-prem, we're all doing nonsolutions. So we really can't compare it against anything else."
"It's taken our backup from being a full-time job to being when you need it, set it up. Our users could be empowered to access their own data backups. Which means we can alleviate a lot of the administration from the backup administrator."
"There's no impact on the endpoint. It runs in the background and it's something that you install and then forget about."
"The compression and deduplication are great for optimizing bandwidth and speed. I don't have to worry about it or think about it, and, because it's a SaaS solution, I don't have to worry about the storage size."
"In terms of the speed of backup, it operates seamlessly, so I'd rate it as excellent... with my daily use and workload, quite honestly I don't even notice when it backs up."
"Integration with Active Directory and the Azure platform make it a complete solution."
"It's very easy to set up the storage across all platforms. This allows us to be dynamic and change on-the-fly."
"The most valuable features are the flexibility and stability of the product."
"This is a good product with a simple environment."
"The initial setup was straightforward. It was very easy. Deployment only took about one hour with configuration and everything considered."
"Application awareness is very good and the speed of this solution is good."
"I like working on the Azure platform."
"A full-featured option for managing virtual machines with an instant recovery feature."
"The interface of this solution is quite good."
"The user interface is good. It provides a lot of information."
"The administration and management integrate with multiple solutions, not just with one or two environments, even if they're not VMware products."
"The most valuable features are the fast replication and recovery of data."
"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 solution is already far more advanced than our customers require. It offers advanced scripting and automation pre-testing to support the custom library and custom tasks."
"While there are some complexities, Veeam tries to keep the product simple and offers a good knowledge base. It's quite structured, so you can easily take one subject and learn about it simply by reading through the documentation."
"The stability and restore options on the solution are very good."
"the interface is the most valuable feature and for the client it's security."
"This solution works really well and it is simple to deploy."
"I would like to see some of the code execute a little bit better when I add new licenses and assign licenses to users. I'd like to see that information update a little quicker."
"The navigation of it needs improvement in terms of the UX. The product itself, it works as expected. It's all user experience and user interface improvements that could be made and it could be made a little more consumer-friendly."
"I would like to see more customizable reports. I have reports going right now, but the daily report, for example, shows something like 40 jobs that ran when there are just a few endpoints on there. I'd like to just know if the endpoint was successfully backed up, not how many times. More customizable reports would be nice to have."
"The setup was a little bit difficult for a non-IT person like me. My OneDrive is protected by multifactor authentication, and to get the backup to begin behind that multifactor authentication took a little bit of almost customized support, even though I was following the instructions and the videos. That process could have been easier."
"There is room for improvement in the Knowledge Base and error reporting. I would like to see best practices in the Knowledge Base, and have the ability to diagnose errors without contacting support."
"For simpler environments, they have some templates for startups. Possibly for a smaller environment, they need to do more automatic configuration and selections of users who want to do backups. This is mainly for smaller environments. I would like them to have the same system fit for all environments: small and big environments. Currently, we have to do a lot of configuration of the layout, which takes time. This solution is appropriate for enterprise-level enterprise, but I would like it to be easier to use for SMB environments."
"I would like to have more flexibility in terms of reporting details about the backup."
"I would like to have a more automated installation process."
"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."
"The stability of this solution needs to be improved."
"I am not very impressed by the technical support I received when I had an issue."
"Updating and configuration can sometimes be a little bit of a hassel, but once you know the product better it is easy to use."
"An area that this solution could be improved would be with the licensing."
"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."
"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."
"The security of encrypted data could be better."
"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 pricing is much higher than what our clients expect it to be."
"The solution should allow for interfacing with other public cloud vendors. They could work to build something around that concept."
"We need the solution to offer IT storage."
"Pricing could be improved and I also think archiving could be improved."
"The biggest thing that Cloud Connect needs is native deduplication."
"I looked at this at the beginning of the year and I don't remember what the prices were for all the other services, but I thought that Metallic's was fair. It was also highly rated, which was even more important than cost because I need a reliable, secure, backup method."
"It is not the cheapest solution. I think the pricing is fair for mid-side customers. It is between all the other options."
"Our licensing fees are on a yearly basis."
"Pricing is based on license packaging and duration. Longer term licenses are less per year and license packages also offer a discount."
"There are costs in addition to the standard licensing fees, and pricing can be a disadvantage or a weakness for this solution."
"We purchased a three-year license, and I think that the prices are ok."
"The pricing is good."
"The licensing fees are billed on a yearly basis, and the fees are much lower than what I pay for NetBackup."
"The pricing model is based on CPU and must be declared as Microsoft or VMware licensing."
"We have a cloud provider agreement with Veeam. We are also paying for the agent."
"I think that this is one of the most cost-effective solutions."
"The licensing fee is on a monthly basis."
"We are looking into how we can extend the license of this product."
