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

Pros
The user interface is good and it is very easy to use.The whole replication aspect of the solution is excellent because it compresses the data so well.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.Features with the most value are Instant VM Recovery, SQL Explorer and Exchange Explorer.Very flexible, all-in-one solution.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.It has helped us transfer the solution in two days instead of working for a minimum of one week to ten days.

Combined with RecoverPoint, it offers zero RPO and zero RTO.It made the DR process a lot faster and easier for recovery after we were familiar with the product operation.

Cons
I would like to have the capability of backing up a physical machine, as opposed to just a VM.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.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.Physical backup is always where room for improvement could be but Veeam has always stated they are not going in that direction.Needs better integration with cloud service providers.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.

I would like to see better integration with other storage solutions. I would hope to see that within the next two or three years.One thing which is lacking from the SRM is reporting.SRM may hit some OS issues related to IP changes, but they are usually OS related, especially in the 2008 realm.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.The product is competitively priced.The pricing is good and affordable.The price is slightly higher than its competitors.The price is great. It's software related, and I know that might be a good thing because it's a cheap solution to buy and we have been looking for a program for backup and they fit the bill.I would suggest to others that they buy the full license when purchasing this solution.Setup cost and licensing of Veeam are nothing to complain about when compared to similar products for enterprise backup recovery solutions.
