What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?The pricing is good and affordable.

How has it helped my organization?The most important part is that we know we have a backup of the whole virtual server. We can restore the whole server if we want, or just take some specific files. I like this duality of the product. That's how I put it on virtualized software.
What needs improvement?The most important improvement would be for it to be updated to support new servers and we actually are in a situation that we are going to connect our Exchange service to a new one. They have to actually support new software as they are released and I think Veeam has promised to support new Windows… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?The price is great. It's software related, and I know that might be a good thing because it's a cheap solution to buy and we have been looking for a program for backup and they fit the bill. The price of Veeam and its software related products enable you to have your own hardware. You can use your… more»
What other advice do I have?You can actually use the infrastructure you already have so you don't have to buy new hardware to actually start using it. That's the most important part about this solution.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?Plan your long-term backup strategy for growth and size the solution appropriately. Veeam has a number of setup options to choose from so make sure you understand them to… more»
If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?We used PHD Virtual and what is now Unitrends UVB. Backup infrastructure was becoming a significant cost and scaling this solution meant more sprawl. Backup windows were… more»
What other advice do I have?Since everyone's data is different, I would recommend a proof of concept project to understand how your data will be used within this solution. If you are intending to… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We looked at vRanger, Unitrends, and Datto.

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… 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… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?Setup cost and licensing of Veeam are nothing to complain about when compared to similar products for enterprise backup recovery solutions.
If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?We switched for multiple reasons. More options and configurations are available with Veeam. It can be a very flexible product.
What other advice do I have?You will enjoy Veeam's resiliency. It does not break in the middle of the night if properly designed, and Veeam gives you tools to make this easier to do than other… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We did not evaluate them to the same extent since they did not pass our evaluation requirements.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?Be sure as always to evaluate products, get licensing costs, etc. Choose what is right for your business model.
If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?We still use Symantec Backup Exec but only due to having physical Exchange 2010 servers. Once we virtualize this will be decommissioned. Having Veeam Endpoint Backup may… more»
What other advice do I have?Veeam is a great product and always works. The product setup is easy and learning of the product for someone technical is straightforward. I look forward to the… more»

What is most valuable?The flexibility is the most valuable feature. It is an all-in-one solution for all kinds of infrastructure (physical, cloud, VM).
How has it helped my organization?The company has its own Veeam backup infrastructure to offer this service. It manages billing, etc.
What needs improvement?Provide more integration for cloud providers such as Google Cloud, Azure and AWS.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?The pricing and licensing is quite competitive with other products. I would not says that it is much higher, neither is it low.
If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?I have worked with all of the major products. These include Azure Backup, Microsoft Data Protection Manager (DPM), Commvault, Veritas Backup Exec, and others. The product you choose depends on the… more»
What other advice do I have?I am certified with the Veeam Sales Professional (VMSP) accreditation. This qualifies people to demonstrate and sell the product. I would rate this solution seven out of ten.
Sep 25 2019
What is most valuable?The restore option is very fast when restoring the VM, and it is the most valuable feature for me. The user interface is good and it is very easy to use.
What needs improvement?I would like to have the capability of backing up a physical machine, as opposed to just a VM.
If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?I used to use IBM Tivoli, and I find that the backup and restore operations are much faster with Veeam. The price of Veeam is much lower than the IBM solution. In Veeam we can use different kinds of storage, whereas, with IBM, we could only use a tape backup.
What other advice do I have?We are happy that we are using Veeam. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.
