Very good VM portal and the CloudCatalyst but needs disaster recovery capabilities

What is our primary use case?

I primarily use the solution to back up my customer's CMs or servers inside all of their data centers.

Pros and Cons

  • "The VM portal and the CloudCatalyst are two of the solution's most valuable features."
  • "It would be helpful, in future releases, if the solution could add WORM (Write Once Read Many) support right within the product."

What other advice do I have?

Since we are a service provider, we have a close relationship with Veritas. We offer services based on their technology and on their product. I'd advise others considering implementing the solution to first evaluate against use cases. Depending on the use cases, the cost can change quite a lot. Overall, I'd recommend the solution, however. It's quite good and very reliable. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.

A very user-friendly and intuitive solution that helps maintain stability

What is our primary use case?

We bought the Veeam Enterprise license for Linux and Microsoft backup for the virtual machines running on those operating systems. The reason we bought this software is that I have a lot of experience with Veeam software. When I compare Veeam with the storage manager from IBM or data protocol from HP or Exeter or some backups from Dell, Veeam is superior. I could buy these other products but Veeam is best because it is very user-friendly as well as being a very great solution. In addition to my personal experience and opinion, when we bought this software, our virtualization software only had… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "Veeam helps to create a stable environment with virtual servers."
  • "The initial setup is very straightforward."
  • "Veeam is very user-friendly and intuitive software."
  • "The solution could use some updates to minor details omitted from current reporting."

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten (where one is the worst and ten is the best), I would rate Veeam on Microsoft Windows as a nine-out-of-ten. What I would expect in order to make this product a ten-of-ten is that they will add some details in reporting about the backup jobs. They need to just fill this little hole in the software by adding details in the reports that are not currently included and it is really giving me everything I need as a user. I would recommend Veeam to others who are looking into implementing it.

Pro-active support, good ROI, and provides email notifications

What is our primary use case?

This solution provides us with business continuity. It is far more than just a DR, or backup solution. It keeps our business up and running with redundant backups of business-critical systems and files that would shut us down if lost. I would suggest this product over all others.

Pros and Cons

  • "Being able to spin up a machine in a sandbox is amazing because it allows us to test things that we otherwise would not be able to do."
  • "At times the email notifications don't go out, but a quick reset always fixes that problem."

What other advice do I have?

It's hard to say where this product needs improvement, as we have not had any problems or needs other than what is already provided, and we are more than happy with the value we are getting out of OnQ.
