Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""Features with the most value are Instant VM Recovery, SQL Explorer and Exchange Explorer.""The most valuable feature is adaptability, where it automatically adapts to the environment that it's being installed on.""The product is very simple in its design. We don't need it to perform complicated tasks.""The integration with some storage systems like HP or Nutanix and great support are the most valuable features. You get productivity support. You get a response within one hour, even in the evening or night. The functionality of the whole software is good.""I can't think of any improvements yet for Veeam because they are very good. It integrates very well with Microsoft applications. It is very easy to integrate. Micro Focus can also integrate but it's more complex. You have to know the product very well to be able to integrate. While Veeam, it's very user-friendly. You don't need to have certifications or anything to work on Veeam."

"It is very capable of scaling and very good for heterogeneous environments.""The solution has a very easy-to-navigate user interface.""It has been our go-to product for backup.""I can confidently say that I have managed more than 30 or 50 appliances over different time periods, and yet I never had a single hardware failure.""The reporting is very good compared to other tools.""NetBackup is based on really good architectural hardware, and Veritas has the best backup and replication technology in the world.""The policy-based backup feature is very helpful.""The solution uses minimal resources."

Cons
"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.""We would like to see support for some additional storage systems.""Physical backup is always where room for improvement could be but Veeam has always stated they are not going in that direction.""They need full cloud integration such that an on-premises backup can be offloaded to the cloud for storage.""It needs to offer an automatic check for backups.""The whole graphical user interface is very easy, but the details are hidden deeply and aren't easily visible. You cannot easily see the details and explore or choose the settings. We should be able to easily explore various settings and options. If you can see more details while choosing the settings or setting it up, it helps in getting the software running easily. For example, in Microsoft Office, you can see much more in the interface than in Veeam Backup & Replication. It is a complex software. It is not easy to use, and you must know what to do and where to do. The user manual has more than a thousand pages. They should give some direct information through the software and improve the software. On their website, they can have some videos and step-by-step information to make us come straight to our goals."

More Veeam Backup & Replication Cons »

"I would like to see support for databases such as MySQL and MongoDB.""It would be a better solution if we were able to make more reports in regards to the backup system.""The desirability of appliance solutions is dwindling in the marketplace.""In terms of implementing the solution, it's quite technical. You need to be knowledgable in order to pull off a successful deployment.""The hybrid model is not that efficient if we want to off-site data; it takes a lot of time to upload the data on a regular basis.""The price needs to be improved because it is really expensive.""The reporting feature can be improved.""It's an expensive solution."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""If you tell Veeam that you're competing with, for example, NetBackup or Backup Exec, or Dell or Micro Focus then they may lower the price. They are very competitive.""I don't know what the costs are for sure, but I think that it's on a yearly basis.""Its price is reasonable for a big company or a big client. It is not too much. It is cheaper than VMware."

"It costs more to license support for this solution, compared to others.""Appliances do not come cheaply.""Overall, Veritas is a good solution; the problem is the cost.""I cannot say whether our licensing costs are on a monthly or annual basis, as we have a global contract.""The licenses are purchased on appliances with the capacity they require.""There is a license required for this solution."
