This solution has got all of the functionality that I need in order to work with it. It is easy to create backups and it is always successful. We still have to use the agents for some machines. This could be solved by not installing agents and having the network discovery done by the solution. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Due to the unpredictable nature of how long a backup will take on the system, I can't really commit to Veeam. For an SMB, I might suggest Backup Exec as an alternative to Veeam. For an enterprise-level company, I would recommend NetBackup. I'd still recommend Veeam, but it would be based on specific customer requirements. I would rate the solution nine out of ten.

We are using the on-premises deployment model. In terms of migration, it's a pretty good tool. It is pretty good at accepting data from legacy applications. I would rate the solution eight out of ten.

The monitoring of the management tools that you find embedded within the package that you buy, is quite enough. It's enough to manage a typical installation. If you need anything else then you will add onto the package that you buy. Moving from a standard to an enterprise version, you will add more features. We are partners and resellers of Veeam Software. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten. I would recommend it, it is practically perfect.

On a scale from one to ten, where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would you rate Veeam an eight. To me, this means that I would recommend it to all of our clients and we are in the process of taking most of our clients onto Veeam. It is a really, really good product, but it is not perfect. But we are recommending now to many of our clients that they move to Veeam when it is an appropriate time to change their licenses. So far, Veeam is handling all the virtual machines for one client and another client is picking up twenty licenses. We have convinced them that it is a good product.

I will recommend this program to others, and I rate this product an eight out of ten. Not a ten because of the bad technical support and difficult installing process.

We are using the solution for different types of software, including Windows, Linux, SQL databases, etc. We use the on-premises deployment model. We have five or six administrators using the model currently. I would rate this solution ten out of ten. I'd recommend it to others.
