We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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."

"Veaam technical support, from my perspective, is one of the best technical support I've ever engaged with.""I believe the solution is very scalable. We can continuously add mailboxes and sites.""The solution is easy to use. It's very simple and clients find it very easy to find all objects and things they need with the Veeam Explorer.""This is an easy-to-install easy-to-use solution for backing up Office 365 email.""I have used the technical support a few times and they've been reasonably helpful.""Veeam makes modular solutions, so you can install Veeam Backup for Office 365 and Veeam Backup and Replication in one single server. You can do an all in one installation, and roll it out.""It is easy to use and easy to recover files.""Backup and replication are the most valuable features."

"It has helped us transfer the solution in two days instead of working for a minimum of one week to ten days.""We get a lot of features with Veeam and we are happy to use this solution. After shutdown, the servers here automatically turn off and Veeam is keeping up all this. It's tension free work.""Very flexible, all-in-one solution.""The whole replication aspect of the solution is excellent because it compresses the data so well.""The user interface is good and it is very easy to use.""Before Veeam, we had backup infrastructure sprawl. Veeam was able to reduce our overall backup windows while reducing our dedicated backup infrastructure.""Vendor integration for many of the enterprise features have allowed for us to have greater performance from our storage vendors further improving on our commitments to protect our clients' data.""The most valuable feature is the ability to verify that backups are valid."

Cons
"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."

More Metallic Cons »

"They should improve the backup and restoration time.""You can't really edit. For example, if you have created a backup for a user, you can't drill down on a granular level during the backup. You have to back up the mailbox completely. That's it. It would be helpful if you could at least go inside the mailboxes to choose what you want.""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.""While there really is nothing wrong with the product some small improvements in the interface could make it even easier to use.""It would be a great improvement to be able to recover cover a VM straight to on-prem.""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.""Technical support could be improved.""In the next release, it should have direct export to tape drive abilities and NDMP support."

"I would like for them to develop the ability to fix the way it does backups. We can't pick a backup for one database. We have to do a backup on the whole Exchange VM. I'd like for them to change it to where we can do individual backups.""We try to compare Veeam with other solutions because we are the operations. Then we can give the answers for improvement which is the specific additional system features that other solutions provide.""Needs better integration with cloud service providers.""It would be ideal if users could know that their data is backed up and have some security functionality where you can actually use the backup to spin up a new cluster and take it from there.""I would like to have the capability of backing up a physical machine, as opposed to just a VM.""Multithreading of health check process: This can take too much time to process on large jobs and/or large VMs.""Additional executive summary reports for the entire infrastructure would be a nice to have.""One challenge that we have encountered was on the long-term retention of data. Be sure to look into a dedicated deduplication appliance."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

More Metallic Pricing and Cost Advice »

"I think it's a fair price. It's around $36 per user, so I think it's a fair price for our customers.""The pricing is middle-of-the-road compared with competing products.""I'm not sure about the price, but I think it could be lower.""The cost is a bit on the high side.""It is not the cheapest solution in the market.""The pricing model makes this solution more expensive than it needs to be.""This is not a stand-alone product and requires a standard Veeam license for your organization in addition to the cost of the solution.""We looked at a few cloud options. When we did the comparison, we found it to be a cost-effective solution, and it included everything."
