Anonymous UserIT Network Analyst at a manufacturing company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"One nice feature with Backup Exec is mainly that disaster can happen to any server and the disk image can be destroyed very easily. It's also easy to fully email the backup image and restore the server."
"This solution works well and has good integration with technologies such as VMware and Hyper-V."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to back up IBM Power virtual servers."
"The dashboard was good. I loved to see the maintenance dashboard every time I logged on. That was my first screen because it always gave me a reminder of how many days before my next renewal."
"The most valuable feature is the user-friendly interface."
"The interface, dashboard, and pricing are all perfect."
"The solution is very scalable. Whenever we grew, it was just a matter of adding new licenses, so it's easy to grow."
"I have not seen another backup solution as scalable as this one."
"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."
"Veritas Backup Exec should be more user-friendly. The costs should also be much lower and it should be easier to go through the disaster recovery process."
"This solution does not support image-level backup of a physical server."
"Compared to other vendors, there are features that you will find not included in Veritas."
"The cost is quite high. Along with the general costs, the supposed agents that you have to buy for the various options that you want to use ends up driving the costs higher as well."
"There are some issues with the Backup Exec Library and the random picking of tapes."
"Better integration with non-Microsoft products would be an improvement."
"In terms of improvements, I think the pricing model could be improved. They charge you by port, for every port that you have even if you're not using all of them."
"The user interface needs to be improved."
"The pricing is good and affordable."
"The product is competitively priced."
"The price of Veeam is much lower than the IBM solution."
"We have increased our scalability while being able to free up senior resources from recovery activities. I estimate our overall savings to about $20,000 per year."
"Veeam is more reasonably priced than some competing products."
"My understanding is that it is a fairly small price point."
"Its software solution has a fee."
"It is more expensive than other solutions."
"Veritas licensing is somewhat expensive. They have to decrease the price."
"We are satisfied with the price of this solution."
"It's a good price for the product."
"The price of this solution is a bit high."
"It is a mid-range solution on the pricing scale."
"Its price is reasonable."
"This product is priced for smaller customers."
"There is an evaluation license available to test this solution."
