What is most valuable?

The ability to backup servers without an agent installed is very valuable. Many of our applications are customized by us, and may break with constant changes and updates to third party software and operating system changes. So the ability to... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Our company now has nightly backups, whereas before we only had weekly backups. It’s also allowed us to retire our cloud backup solution (HP Autonomy LiveVault), saving us about $40,000/year in storage costs. Since we completely control the... more»

What needs improvement?

Moving backup repositories and merging backup chains is either difficult or not possible as far as I know in the current release of Veeam Backup and Replication. This has made it inefficient to retire backup storage repositories, causing us... more»

What is most valuable?

For most clients I look after, the most often used feature is a simple restore. Once the backup is on disk, most restores can kick in within 15 minutes and be restored within 30 minutes for files, emails and SQL databases etc. It doesn’t... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Veeam B&R saved many files that had accidentally been deleted. By using file level recovery, all of them got restored easily and in a timely manner. From a business point of view the recovery time objective (RTO) and recovery point... more»

What needs improvement?

Cross job deduplication and dedupe across full backups would be interesting. This would help the backup footprint for long term backups. Saying that, Server 2016 dedup (when it's released shortly) should cover some of this for small to medium... more»

What is most valuable?

Veeam is a solid performer for backing up VMware. By leveraging VMware’s changed block tracking (CBT) the incremental backups are very efficient and small. Veeam also has a rather intuitive interface that is easy to understand and is easy to... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Reliable backups are so critical and my Veeam backups (disk-to-disk) have never failed to be restorable. I can’t say that about other products I’ve used.

What needs improvement?

I have asked Veeam to consider backing up physical devices for years and each time the response was “that’s not what we do”. As a result, they missed many opportunities to sell their products to customers who have a mixture of virtual and... more»

What is most valuable?

One of the most important features of Veeam is the excellent self-restart feature. We use Veeam to provide remote backups for us as well as our customers. Many times a communications glitch will occur that will disrupt the backup process... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has greatly reduced the man power required to monitor the backup process. Coupled with the email notification feature, the BDR services that we offer can be managed by one person and subject matter knowledge can easily be transferred to... more»

What needs improvement?

We would like to see a product that supports Linux, however, we believe that this support is already in the works.

What is most valuable?

Instant Recovery – Instantly recover a virtual machine from the backup file on backup storage, then migrate it back into production. RTO’s can be measured in minutes. Virtual Lab – Spin up an environment (web app, middleware, and a database)... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Ability to attract customers with a simple product to protect their data and lead them into conversations about how to enable business outcomes that are positive as opposed to catastrophic. With the multiple facets of potential data... more»

What needs improvement?

The product is really awesome for the virtualized environment – hands down. It really lives up to its motto – it just works. One caveat – those physical servers that are still outliers. We are constantly hearing that our customers would be... more»
