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?

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?

* The quality of compression and deduplication is better than other products. * The WAN acceleration allows us to send less data through our WAN lines. * The easiness of the suite. * The reporting tool, Veeam One, is very powerful and helps... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Let me start by mentioning that, before Veeam, my company used to backup data with Microsoft Robocopy. Backup times now are more than ten times faster and the data to be moved is only a fraction. This behaviour has been improved with the new... more»

What needs improvement?

Determining the space for the WAN acceleration server sometimes is hard, especially if you have many source sites for the data. I would like to have a kind of storage space calculator that gives me an estimate for the size of the WAN... more»

What is most valuable?

Veeam replication gives migration tools/options for VMware, which is nice. I also enjoy the ability to quickly search for VMs through the Veeam console.

How has it helped my organization?

Veeam does its job well. However, there are more than a dozen commonsense items which should have been built into the software, such as being able to sort the column of server names while in a backup job and being able to see what VMs are... more»

What needs improvement?

The product is missing some commonsense features and tools for an enterprise backup recovery product, but it is reliable, fairly resilient, and works. I do not like how Veeam's software is dependent on a remote database which relies on the... more»

What is most valuable?

Granular permissions through Veeam Enterprise Manager have allowed for us to pass control down to our support staff instead of having it with senior datacenter resources. Vendor integration for many of the enterprise features have allowed for... more»

How has it helped my organization?

As our datacenters continue to grow, we had a challenge of reducing backup windows while being able to scale our total protected VMs. Before Veeam, we had backup infrastructure sprawl. Veeam was able to reduce our overall backup windows while... more»

What needs improvement?

Multithreading of health check process: This can take too much time to process on large jobs and/or large VMs. Better to have built-in deduplication for long-term retention. Additional executive summary reports for the entire infrastructure... more»
