Veeam Backup

It is very well suited for a VMWare virtual environment. It's easy to configure and easier to the manager. You can configure Veeam Backup & Replication for both full and incremental backups. It is very reliable and doesn't break in the middle of the night. The storage footprint is also quite small and you can configure a backup retention policy to keep good control of it. It is definitely not a great solution if you want to back up your physical server. But if you want to save on the additional cost of buying a separate solution for that, just like we are doing, you can use it to a satisfying level. But do not expect a point in time recovery for physical hosts.

Cons

Actifio Enterprise

  • Single file restore has always been an issue but hopefully will be added soon.
  • Physical server backup restoring has always been tricky but achievable.

Veeam Backup

  • I want to see improvement in the reporting. I see the data transfer rate and completed times, but I want to know the transfer rate speed, so I can better understand what the network bottleneck is.

We really like the product and can't really complain about its performance at this point. We've also had it deployed for years and it would be difficult to migrate to another solution, not to mention hard to justify the cost of a new solution when this one is working as well as it is.

Overall we have been very pleased with the solution for our virtual infrastructure. I would not give it 10 because I am not really happy with the troubles we get into while backing up our physical servers directly.

Alternatives Considered

Actifio Enterprise

Actifio is quicker to deploy easier to manage and capacity plan with less components to keep patched.

Veeam Backup

All 3 of these backups solutions are very valuable to me. I use Veeam Backup and Replication for my primary onsite backup solution. I use Cloudberry for my File Server backup to AWS because I really like the way it stores the multiple versions of files that are modified. Zerto is my primary solution for our offsite replication. It works very well for us to use all 3 since they all have different jobs and provide the reliability of multiple vendors to multiple backup repositories via multiple paths.
