The product has drastically improved. Veeam never used to have any Agents, whether for Linux or Windows. They were strictly focusing on virtual environments. Even within virtual environments, they were strictly focused on Hyper-V VMware. Now, however, with the addition of agents, it helps a lot. Many environments, due to constraints with the received design or performance, prefer to go with certain workloads to be physical. Now the trend in Saudi Arabia is to migrate workloads to Linux since they somehow think it's more secure, although that's a debatable argument. There are also a lot of Oracle databases being deployed on Linux nowadays, so it does come of value there. View full review »

This solution provides us with an RPO within fifteen minutes, which is unlike any other product. I would estimate this as a fifty percent improvement. View full review »

This solution has improved my organization because if someone accidentally deletes or corrupts something, we have multiple sources to restore them. If we lose a whole server, we can restore that server. It's quick and easy. If a site blows up, I get to rebuild that site. They update quickly. View full review »

If you compare the Veeam Backup Solution with EMC NetWorker, EMC NetWorker is very complex to manage and deploy. With Veeam you can deploy it in one hour or as little as thirty minutes. For EMC NetWorker, you need days or even weeks. In 2012 I led a project for an EMC Networker deployment. It took around two months at my previous company. In comparison, in January we deployed Veeam and it took around one hour, and it was quick and easy. The solution saved time and money. Also, management is very simple. It's most compatible with VMware. It can restore single files instead of having to restore the whole machine, once again leading to savings for the company. View full review »
