It's really important to note that Veeam Agents for Linux is the software that is installed inside the Linux machines, but Veeam Agent integrates with Veeam Backup Server. Backup Server is pretty scalable, but as for the Agents part, I can only tell you about the components that are related to the agent. The main components of Veeam are: Veeam Backup Server, Veeam Repository, Veeam Distribution Server, and Veeam Agents. Agents are going to be deployed on the clients. The Distribution Server is responsible for deploying Agents and monitoring them. The Repository is where you store your backups. Finally, the Backup Server is basically the big brain, so you can distribute and deploy as much of these components as you want across an environment. The distribution architecture is pretty scalable. We'd like to see native support for clusters in Veeam, as well as other agents for Linux. For example, Microsoft has support for its clusters, which is amazing. There are many people that like Microsoft and really like their clusters, so they want to be able to have their backup solution to be clustered aware. Veeam Agent for Linux has no specific cluster support, however, it still can be used to backup Linux clusters. There is no native support as there is with Veeam Agents for Windows and Microsoft failover cluster support. View full review »

It's absolutely scalable. From one local site to multiple hundreds of sites around the world. Mostly local IT interact with this solution. The infrastructure staff also looks after it. Anywhere between ten to thirty people use it. We use it as our primary backup resource and we use basic copy backups. It's fully utilized across our whole system. View full review »

If you are in a hybrid environment and have only one solution, which is Veeam, then you may have a problem with the integration of other kinds of preparatory solutions. The scalability in a virtualization environment is very easy and it's quick to implement. However, when you have a lot of other solutions, then you have to redesign this solution to integrate with them. The scalability, if you talk about virtualization environments, is very nice. At the end of the day, it's pretty scalable. In our environment, we provide a host environment for a lot of companies that belong to the government. View full review »

This solution easy enough to scale. System administrators only use Veeam with one backup administrator. View full review »

We have about 500 users and it is very simple to scale. Veeam comes with all the software to scale, so it is just the license that is an issue. Now they have better hardware to go full scalability. View full review »
