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."

"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."

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."

More Veeam Backup for Office 365 Cons »

"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."

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."

"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."
