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

Pros
"It helps with process restoration. With Veeam, we never had backup or restoration issues.""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."

"It saves time for the backup needs of our organization.""This is the best solution that I know of.""We were evaluating other products and getting confused between Commvault and Veritas NetBackup. The one reason that we started with Veritas NetBackup is the pricing of the license. There's no other reason from a technical perspective or even operation or capability of the two software. The main reason we chose Veritas NetBackup was that in our use case it is more cost-effective.""Veritas NetBackup Automatic Image Replication and CloudCatalyst features allow me to replicate deduped backup images from one site to a remote site, as well as duplicating deduped images to the Cloud (i.e. AWS S3, etc.)""The reporting is very good, with all of the details highlighted and very clear.""The most valuable features are the VMware VADP backups and the support for data domains.""The VM portal and the CloudCatalyst are two of the solution's most valuable features.""Good graphical user interface. It's easy to create policies and to do installs."

Cons
"I would like to see a storage application in the next version of the product.""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."

"The interface should be improved.""Endpoint backup capability is needed.""Improvements can be made to the service by providing better and more competitive ratios on data backups. The functionality for backups is there with Veritas, but I would like to see them optimize and enhance this feature more.""This product would be improved with the inclusion of a Sandbox feature like Veeam Sandbox.""This solution would benefit from a more friendly, web-based interface.""In terms of improvement, it's very difficult to make it work with multiple business units. Its security model is too constricted.""It would be helpful, in future releases, if the solution could add WORM (Write Once Read Many) support right within the product.""Lacks a reporting feature."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The price is slightly higher than its competitors.""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."

More Veeam Backup & Replication Pricing and Cost Advice »

"This is an affordable solution""Veritas Netbackup offers affordable licensing.""We are very satisfied with the price of this solution.""If you have a source size of one terabyte then they will charge for a one terabyte license, although what is actually being stored is much less.""It's expensive when comparing to other solutions on the market.""My licensing model is based on capacity so as we grow, the price we pay increases and it becomes too expensive.""Licensing fees are charged based on the number of CPU cores.""We are happy with the pricing that we have, but it's expensive."
