Veeam Backup

Veeam Backup is a great addition to most environments. I would be hesitant in an environment where Veeam doesn't officially support a specific product class or OS level. You want to make sure if there is an issue that the Veeam Support is able to assist you.

  • Virtual Server Backup and Replication/Copy: Veeam is a leader in the virtual server backup environments for the past 7-10 years. With an agent-less configuration and multiple options to reduce the impact on your production environment, VEEAM is the clear choice for protecting your data.
  • VEEAM offers multiple options to manage replicas of your most critical data, with failover, fail back, commit, and failover plans. This adds a great value on HyperV Farms where replication management lacks visibility into the current state and operation. You can see what is going on as the replication occurs.
  • VEEAM extended their product into AIX, Oracle, Physical, and Office365 Environments (As well as other improvements). This is a quality you want to discover when picking a vendor to backup your expanding infrastructure.
  • Sure Backup offers the ability to boot the VMs up off the backup file in a Sandbox for user testing and validation. Veeam also offers the "Instant VM Recovery", which allows you to quickly restore a backup by mounting the backup file to the host and then once its up and operating storage migrate the VM data to production local or SAN/NAS storage.

Cons

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

  • I have had a hard time supporting Veeam Agent on Linux on my physical linux database servers. The job gets stuck due to several reasons like network glitch etc but what's more annoying is that killing the job sends Veeam service into zombie mode. The only solution we have is to restart the server. We have tried working with Veeam support on it, but have not received any better solution for this problem.
  • Veeam Agent on Linux does not support Oracle ASM volumes, so a backup that includes ASM volumes will not be incremental and run long based on your ASM volume size.
  • Veeam Support support is not a great team and they need to work on their customer satisfaction.

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.

When I needed support I was able to call and get assistance from a live person very quickly. They were very helpful with all aspects of the software from installation and configuration issues to recovery and everyday maintenance issues

Alternatives Considered

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

Veeam Backup & Replication is cheaper and easier to manage. A system admin can easily install, configure and manage Veeam Backup and Replication, while for CommVault, it is better you hire an expert.

Return on Investment

  • We have managed to scale up the size of our environment without the need for extra admin overhead.
  • Over 99% backups complete.
  • Solution is robust and quick to scale to meet demands.

  • Positive impact. When data is lost and needs to be recovered, the process should be smooth, correct? With Veeam, we had one instance this past year where we had to recover SQL DB. We managed to recover from tape backup, which for us goes back a few months. Job well done Veeam.
