What is most valuable?

The VM portal and the CloudCatalyst are two of the solution's most valuable features.

What needs improvement?

The interaction of NetBackup with the cloud is not an easy process. You can't choose, for example, data optimization with the cloud. We would like to use CloudCatalyst with AWS and we can't. I don't know how to explain it, but the data file… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing is primarily a concern for my managers and our management team. The pricing model for Veeam has changed. I bought an older license and I thought that when I bought one CPU license for a virtual machine that I could use that license for Microsoft or VMware. Now, with the change in the… more »

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… more »
