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.

How has it helped my organization?

With moving the Veeam server to a physical server and creating a Proxy server on each of the hosts we are able to leverage SAN based backup which is very fast. Jobs are… more»

What needs improvement?

Physical backup is always where room for improvement could be but Veeam has always stated they are not going in that direction, however, with Veeam Endpoint Backup… more»

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»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No other options were evaluated as we knew Veeam was one of the better solutions for Virtual Backup.

What is most valuable?

We migrated our servers from physical to virtual with our B2B platform. We had a big problem when trying to transfer our site server that was about six terabytes to the new environments. We wanted to… more»

How has it helped my organization?

It has improved my organization by 90%. Now we can restore a single box with all of its folder contents. We could install one email, one folder or one lead and it could have still one email. This has… more»

What needs improvement?

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… more»

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

The pricing is good and affordable.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We had been previously using HP Data Protector. We switched to virtualization. We switched to Veeam because the person who promoted it explained its benefits well.

What other advice do I have?

I would advise someone considering this solution to find a good implementor who can help you during and after the implementation. I would rate it a nine out of ten. It's a good product that we can… more»

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

Actually, the most important criteria for us when considering a solution is service. When we are taking a decision regarding the hardware or software or any applications… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Before using Veeam Backup & Replication, we had not deployed any backup systems in the company.

What other advice do I have?

For the Veeam Backup & Replication software, we care about the system dependency on software-based, not the hardware-based licenses. For actualization concepts and… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We started thinking of the new systems. We surveyed from IT Central Station and several other portals that are available online. We got the reports and we did the contact… more»
