Veeam Backup & Replication Initial Setup

Ola Zaher
Infrastructure Section Head at citystars Properties
The initial setup was very straightforward. The company that we hired came in and installed it without a hitch. Now we can use it efficiently without their help. The deployment took one day. We did have a problem when we started working with it. The difference between the restore points wasn't clear. Up until this point, we're still not sure what effect it has on our backup. I would like this to be made more clear. It's easier for us to directly put it on tapes than to first put it on storage. As far as our deployment strategy went, we started with building our jobs. We took our jobs and tried to plan them on the system and we took VMs instead of files. It has worked up until now. After a month or so we did need to make some changes to some of our jobs.

The initial setup was straightforward. It was easy to install. If you miss some plugins for Windows, you actually can click "okay" and it's on the installation media. The installation is very easy. View full review »

Initial setup was easy. However, after 40 days, it may not act the way you predicted it would. You may have to go back and make changes. With Veeam, you need to analyze how everything works, not just how it looks like it should work compared to your experience with similar products. View full review »
