Amazon Cloud is well suited for companies seeking an easy way to set up a secure cloud storage for your photos, files, videos, music, and more. It was also made to be accessible while on the go via mobile phones, tablets, and desktop computers. This makes it perfectly viable for business and business meetings where you have to be traveling. It may not be appropriate for businesses on tighter budgets that are limited. There are alternatives that ooffersimilar functionality for free although limited in functionality.

Veeam Backup

Veeam is wonderful in a Windows environment with VMware as the hypervisor. If you're using Exchange, Windows file services, MS SQL, and Active Directory virtualized in VMware (or Hyper-V allegedly but we don't have direct experience with that) it's a wonderful tool.However, if you're more in a mixed environment where some workloads are physical/native and others are virtualized it's not as effective. The upcoming version will include "Veeam Agents" for cloud hosted or physical environments, but those are unreleased and unproven so far.

Pros

  • Easy pushing to cloud
  • Easy access to cloud
  • Prevents organization and editing by non PMs

  • Restoration is VERY easy with Veeam, much easier than other backup products that we use. Whether it's the Instant VM Recovery or one of the Backup Explorers (for File Server, Exchange, SQL, or AD) it's very simple and easy to restore files.
  • I like the flexibility of the Veeam Suite and how it fits well in any size company. A lot of our smaller businesses that we support only have a single Veeam server, while some of our bigger ones we have multiple Veeam servers and proxies.
  • As part of the Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) program, we are able to provide cloud storage to our customers as a very simple process. We can also do subscription based licensing for protected VMs which fits our MSP business model very well instead of perpetual licensing.

Cons

  • No managerial aspect
  • No meta data saved with images
  • No organizational abilities due to loss of meta data

  • I have had trouble setting up Veeam free tools at other sites.
  • The jump from the 3 license pack to more hosts is a big price increase.
  • Veeam does both Hyper-V and VMWare, but I have found the VMware side more functional and working as expected automatically. The hyper-V takes more effort.

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.

The system is very easy to use and it's use of apps for almost all devices and hardware makes it even easier to manage and store photos and documents. I highly recommend this as an easy to use solution for novices!

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

Just follow the instructions and the software is super simple to install.

Alternatives Considered

We selected Amazon due to the large reliable brand name behind ACD and the ability of it to be nested within other services. While Microsoft and Google were strong options, we decided that ACD had a better cost and availability uptime compared to other services. Dropbox has been used in the past but not a strong positive experience.

Backup Exec requires additional licenses for VM backups. It also did not work well backing up at a remote site. Backup Exec usually takes more of my time to manage. Veeam is better at restoring machines to a smaller time interval since it can do continuous backups. Backup Exec is a solid traditional bare metal backup technology

Return on Investment

  • We have no ROI numbers that have been reported, we have expected 100% uptime which so far we are satisfied with, so nothing about ACD has hampered our ability to function.

  • Veeam generally runs well and is reliable, so not a big drain on admin resources to deal with issues
  • Allows businesses to meet varying RTOs and RPOs
  • Affordable compared to other competition on the market
