I would recommend both Veeam and NetApp. Both of them have got it right. The only difference I see is in the management. For Office 365, we have to go into our web console which is directly integrated on the cloud, which is good because it gives that differentiation. At the same time, if you're an administrator and you're managing backups, you should have the simplicity of having everything in a single pane of glass. I would recommend using the Veeam console to someone who is doing Veeam on-premise or cloud backup. It gives you the simplicity of having everything in a single pane of glass. I like NetApp, but I would've liked its integration into the Netcenter. That would really raise the game for them in terms of giving a full position in a single pane of glass. However, if there are people who are using other backup solutions and they just want to purchase Office 365, NetApp is also a good product. I would recommend both to anyone, and let them feel for themselves, regardless of price, how they scale, what features they want, and how they want to store their backups. I would rate Veeam Backup for Office 365 a nine out of ten.

For the past six months, Microsoft Teams has been of the biggest importance for us, both in terms of teaching and meetings. Our meetings include both in-house and outside. Office 365 is one of the things that is connected to that, and our files need to be backed up regularly. This is definitely a product that I can recommend. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

We're just a customer. We don't have a business relationship with Veeam. We use the latest version of the solution. We try to consistently keep it up to date. I'd recommend the solution. It's worked well for us. I'd rate the solution overall at a seven out of ten. It's easy to use, however, the initial setup could be simpler. Still, for us, we don't have too many complaints about the product overall.

On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate Veeam Backup for Office 365 as a seven or eight. Choosing between the two, I give it a seven. I have to ding them a little bit because of the licensing. I am really not thrilled with that.

Honestly speaking, lots of people just look at it from a business point of view. They say, "I just have a business need. I just want to backup my Office 365 data." But they don't take much concern into what that also requires. Generally speaking, from a backup point of view, the biggest concern is what percentage of data you'd like to backup and the capacity of this data. Also consider what the recovery point objectives are, meaning how frequently do you want to do backups. What kind of retention policy are you trying to achieve? The shorter the retention policy, the smaller the storage capacity you need, and the lower the cost of the solution. At the same time, some people are tied by their clients and by specific retention policies. So, tell people they need to archive their backups into deduplication appliances to save on the cost of long-term archival. However, that's not natively possible with Veeam backup for Office 365 yet. I believe it can be done manually, though. That's what clients need to be careful of and the really important part is to make sure they have enough storage for what they are trying to achieve as they prepare their backup plan. The internet bandwidth for this also needs to be considered. It is best to have a dedicated channel for this. Think about the use of backups and make sure it is properly sized. Then they should be good to go. They should be worrying about the details, the sizing, and design of the solution to fit their needs. Other than that, so long as that process goes well, it should be pretty seamless after that. This product is a really decent product so it would be unfair for me to rate it because I'm not familiar with other products that compete with it. Generally speaking from my experience, this solution is very good, but it also has some room for improvement. On the other hand, it's tough because the product is really amazing. It's just really new. I'm pretty sure the improvements will come along the way. I'll give it a nine out of ten.

We are a Veeam partner. We handle the on-premises deployment model. If you are a company that needs simple virtualizations and if you don't have very complex applications, I would recommend the solution. I would rate the solution nine out of ten. It's not quite suitable for complex systems. If you have, for example, a CSS share, you can't backup using Veeam.

Other people who are considering this solution will probably be good to go with it if it solves what they want it to do. Even without improvement, the program is really simple to use. I think sometimes it takes a long time to learn new programs and it really shouldn't be necessary when you are doing a simple thing. People who are in doubt should just try it to compare with other solutions because it is really good. They will find out quickly how it compares. At the moment I think we have all we need for backing up our Office 365 emails reliably, we have a solid solution with this product so I don't see any reason it would have to change. On a scale from one to ten, where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate this product as a nine. It is very near to getting a ten, but it isn't perfect. I give it a nine instead of a ten to leave the company a little room to improve the product interface.

We are a consultancy and we also handle implementation and support. We use an on-premises deployment model. For those considering implementing the solution, I would say to just go for it. We really like it. We are a Veeam consumer, so we use Veeam for our data center backup ourselves and offer it to our clients as well. I would rate the solution nine out of ten.
