Easy to deploy and user-friendly with good technical support and

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution to backup our server.

Pros and Cons

  • "The initial setup and deployment are easy. It's straightforward."
  • "The solution is pretty stable right now, however, we believe that the solution could be made to be even more stable."

What other advice do I have?

This is a cloud-based solution, and as such, we are always using the latest version of the solution. It is automatically updated as required. I'd rate the solution at a nine out of ten. We've found the product to be very useful and has very good capabilities. I'd recommend the solution to other organizations.

Single file restore capability works well, but I would like to be able to install directly on Linux

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is for backup and recovery.

Pros and Cons

  • "The user interface is good."
  • "I would like to be able to install Veeam directly to Linux instead of having to go through a Windows server."

What other advice do I have?

I haven't explored all of what this solution has to offer as I have only been using it for four months, but so far it's good and I would recommend it. In the next release, I would like to see Veeam installed in Linux instead of Windows, that is the main concern for me. Some locations avoid using Veeam because of this, being installed on a Windows Server and not Linux. This would be a huge improvement. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Very good, simple to use, and fits the purpose

What is our primary use case?

We sell the latest version of Veeam Agent for Linux.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's simple to use."
  • "There isn't much to improve. They just need to follow the trend or the development of other Linux products. Follow in terms of making the product compatible with new versions of Linux. They just need to include as many versions for Linux as possible."

What other advice do I have?

If you have a Linux environment and you need to protect it via an agent, that's when you have to use it. Otherwise, you just don't use it. You back up this little machine without initiation. It is very good, and it fits the purpose. That's a 10 out of 10.

Easy to install and manage but it needs to support physical machine backup

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the instant restore option."
  • "We are currently waiting for the continuous backup process."

What other advice do I have?

If the production site has physical computers they will not be able to use Veeam, but if they have virtual machines then it’s very good to manage, install, and the reporting is also very good. We do not have a business relationship with Veeam, we are customers. I am certified with Veeam. At the moment, this solution is not good enough. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

Good backup features and useful integration

Pros and Cons

  • "The technical support is good."

    What other advice do I have?

    On a scale of one to ten, I will rate this solution an eight. Something that needs to improve is compatibility with all the operating systems so that they operate smoothly. That will improve the backup function.
