Veeam Backup & Replication Pros

Sanjeev Roy
Project Manager at renaissance group
We get a lot of features with Veeam and we are happy to use this solution. After shutdown, the servers here automatically turn off and Veeam is keeping up all this. It's tension free work.

Before Veeam, we had backup infrastructure sprawl. Veeam was able to reduce our overall backup windows while reducing our dedicated backup infrastructure.
Vendor integration for many of the enterprise features have allowed for us to have greater performance from our storage vendors further improving on our commitments to protect our clients' data.

Sanjeev Roy
Project Manager at renaissance group
We try to compare Veeam with other solutions because we are the operations. Then we can give the answers for improvement which is the specific additional system features that other solutions provide.

I would like for them to develop the ability to fix the way it does backups. We can't pick a backup for one database. We have to do a backup on the whole Exchange VM. I'd like for them to change it to where we can do individual backups.

I have also been struggling with the storage and in some cases I need to move things due to performance.

Multithreading of health check process: This can take too much time to process on large jobs and/or large VMs.
Additional executive summary reports for the entire infrastructure would be a nice to have.
One challenge that we have encountered was on the long-term retention of data. Be sure to look into a dedicated deduplication appliance.

The remote SQL server has had multiple sizing issues within the logs and SQL backup space and sharing with other database apps.
The product is missing some commonsense features and tools for an enterprise backup recovery product,

Physical backup is always where room for improvement could be but Veeam has always stated they are not going in that direction.

I would like to have the capability of backing up a physical machine, as opposed to just a VM.

It would be ideal if users could know that their data is backed up and have some security functionality where you can actually use the backup to spin up a new cluster and take it from there.

The only issue on which we would like to see for improvement would be, potentially, the ability to do some different things with recovery, like faster recovery onsite.
