What is most valuable?

In the past, we've always been uploading our stuff to tape. We now have disc-based solutions, and those disc-based solutions, one of the neat features of them is when you use what they call TSM for VE, Tivoli Storage Manager for Virtual Environment, you're able to crack those snapshots open and are able to do file-level recoveries out of them. It gives you the ability to get rid of some file-level… more »

What needs improvement?

Their support is lacking. I've talked to their developers and stuff in the last couple of weeks and they reassure me that some people have retired, and they're working on getting that bumped back up. But the support lacks a lot to be desired at this point. Their backups are once a day, they're not doing asynchronous replication. They're doing a one time a night backup. So whereas products like… more »

What other advice do I have?

I would say partner up with a business partner, someone who does it day in and day out because installing the application or the server is not something you do every day as a customer. As a customer, you do that once in a blue moon. A business partner is constantly doing these installations over and over so they've got it down fairly well. I would say partner up with someone who can help you… more »

IT Manager - Infrastructure at a tech services company with 51-200 employees

What is most valuable?

The Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows is easy to use and performing a recovery is easy to do. It is a lightweight application that does not consume a lot of resources.

What needs improvement?

We started with Zerto and moved to Veeam to save costs. It did the job but I wasn’t as impressed with the orchestration as it didn’t do the re-IP and spin up automatically. It caused some delays during the snapshot and replication process… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is good.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is considering Veeam is to do a proof of concept first, to make sure that it works in your environment. Overall, we are pretty happy with this product. Compared to what else is out there, it works well and it seems… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We are currently investigating Zerto. Our intention is to keep using Veeam, although we may be supplementing it with another solution. The goal is to get better RTOs on some of our critical servers.

What is most valuable?

Overall the product is really good. Unfortunately, it just didn't quite fit our needs.

What needs improvement?

The solution does not have multi-tenant capabilities. It's one of the reasons that we ultimately decided to move away from the solution. The solution lacks cloud usability. If it did, it would be much better for us. The solution is not easy… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

In comparison to other solutions, like Zerto, the pricing is quite high. It's not the cheapest solution.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did previously use a VM application and Zerto. However, we haven't used anything else. We cannot use EMC RecoverPoint when we use cross-hypervisor platforms, like Hyper-V to VMware, VMware to Hyper-V, et cetera. We can, however, use it… more »

What other advice do I have?

We are a service provider and we used to use EMC RecoverPoint. However, we couldn't sell it for our infrastructure because it does not have multi-tenant capabilities. It is just for enterprises. That's why we dropped it. I would rate the… more »
