Amazon Cloud Drive is a fantastic backup solution for storing your digital files on the web, but if you want to manage, tweak, organize or otherwise maintain those files after they have reached the cloud, the experience immediately begins to suffer. This is especially noted when major competitor products like Microsoft and
offer similar services at similar prices, but offer far better interfaces for file management.

Veeam is great for proving to auditors that your backup are trust-worthy. When you can start up a virtual server from the backup file running in memory in under 10 minutes, it is pretty darn impressive. We have also used it to take a full take a backup of a production virtual server while it was running in under 5 minutes, so we could restore it (off-network) for testing against production.
Read full review Pros Amazon Drive automatically detects photos and videos in specific folders (that you choose). It will add them to Drive without any action from me. There is a desktop app where you can access all of your files (in addition to web-based access). Read full review File-level restore is quick, reliable, and much simpler than other platforms I've used Replication is extremely simple to configure and test Agent setup for user endpoints and subsequent backup storage is incredibly simple Cloud repository configuration is extremely straightforward and well-documented Read full review Cons Less storage than Google Drive, Google offers 15GB of free space - vs. Amazon's 5GB. Also, unlike with Google Drive, you can't back up your work with Amazon Drive ( I also use Google Drive, since I have a Gmail account). A lot more expensive than Google Drive, which is 1.99/month...but they are more in line with Dropbox pricing. Read full review Support could stand to improve by a bit. The level of support has seemingly lessened over the years I've been using it. It needs to be able to report backup repository statistics better when XFS and ReFS are in use. It could be a little better about cleaning up after itself (old logs, etc.). Read full review Likelihood to Renew
I have used many other data backup products that are on the market. I trust the configuration options within Veeam to do as they are labeled, without any specific back end software changes that may cause backups to fail if you don't use a systems integrator.
I trust the product for my own home environment as well due to relationship I have with the product at work.

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!

Veeam is fairly simple in terms of how it is set up; its not an overly-complicated dashboard that can be intimidating to less technically-inclined users. Veeam also offers good instructional videos to help users work through how to do specific functions. I appreciate that they have specific video tutorials rather than having users scroll through a cumbersome manual.

The Veeam Backup & Replication solution is up and running every time you need it as it was planned. In more than 3 years that we have been using the product every night, it might have failed or presented an error once or twice, so the availability percentage is almost at 100%.

It is safe but has little added value.

Veeam does a good job with backing up our servers in a timely manner. We are still at the beginning of our Veeam use and are pleased with the speed at which we can access the system as well as the backups and restore points. Veeam is definitely superior to our previous backup system in terms of speed and accessibility

Overall great software to use for file share, storage, and collaboration. Its security is great and the user management is spot on. The only thing that makes me dock it a point is that the device management as a subset of user management is kind of clunky. It hasn't been an issue yet, but it could compromise security in the future. Overall, would recommend

The support team has never asked me to jump through silly hoops or waste time on pointless exercises. They seem to truly have a handle on what may be wrong. In fact, when we were having trouble getting our license renewal setup (because of yet another license migration at Veeam) a support incident got us connected to the right people to get our renewal done in time.

(I assume this question should say "Veeam" and not "Crownpeak Universal Consent Platform") Planning is key. Planning your backup schedule, size, data restore points, replication if you're doing that, &c. Testing is also important; make sure you back something up and then do a test restore. Set up alerts so you know if things aren't working (or even if they are, always good to know that too).

Amazon Drive Cloud has the advantage of being backed by one of the companies that has had the highest growth in recent years: Amazon. That gives us security and has been the main reason for us to trust this product. We believe that the security systems of this company are good enough to be quiet while our files are stored on their servers

and CA Arcserve to address these needs without migrating to Veeam Backup & Replication.
is a very successful instant backup and we are still using it now. It does what Veeam application cannot do in instant replication. CA Arcserve, on the other hand, is clearly lagging behind the Veeam Backup & Replication product and does not meet today's requirements.

In terms of scalability for our company, Veeam was able to cover our backup needs with ease. They have options for even more individualized backup if we were to need them; i.e. if a specific workstation needs its own independent backup. We have not used these resources yet, but I am confident they will be beneficial to our company in the near future.
Read full review Return on Investment It slowed us down at first since we went from purely agile to document based then agile. It is easy to use so even non-developers can access code snippets which they wouldn't know how to access on github. It has a lot of features we don't have a use for in our business. Read full review Confidence before starting riskier maintenance windows is a large component of what veeam is able to offer for us Some of the segmentation between different backup servers across our data enters causes unnecessary delays or backups that are duplicated unnecessarily Lack of certain storage vendors being natively supported requires hacky workarounds not fit for a production environment Read full review ScreenShots Veeam Data Platform Screenshots
