    File recovering and easy data management from various cloud storage systems and the cost-effective capability on this IBM platform are excellent. Security on the system for the multiple data that are handled through the platform is excellent and the user can easily access any needed data from the cloud and provide useful data reports as well as excellent real-time data analytics.

    Veeam Backup & Replication

    The Veeam Backup & Replication solution is ideal for backups of virtualized environments. It provides agility for the backup of VMs, all in a centralized console for monitoring, making it possible to retain several restore points and restore files in a granular way without the need for backup of folders isolated, which makes management difficult. However, the Veeam Backup & Replication solution fits better in medium-large enterprise environments, as it needs a dedicated and robust datastore. The cost of its license to allow the backup of several VMs is not very affordable. For small companies, it is possible to use the free version with limitations, but it also works excellently if the environment has a simple infrastructure.

    Pros

    IBM Cloud Object Storage

    • Cloud storage allows you to save data and files in an off-site location that you access either through the public internet or a dedicated private network connection.
    • Cloud storage delivers a cost-effective, scalable alternative to storing files on on-premise hard drives or storage networks.
    • Cloud storage services provide elasticity, which means you can scale capacity as your data volumes increase or dial down capacity if necessary.
    • Business continuity of Storing data offsite supports business continuity in the event that a natural disaster or terrorist attack cuts access to your premises.
    Frason Francis | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Veeam Backup & Replication

    • Veeam has built some very useful application-specific tools for recovering exchange server items, emails, etc.
    • Veeam is relatively simple to set up, but provides a lot of extended features should the need come one day. Features like replication and backup copy were not originally implemented in our project goals.
    • Support is outstanding, their SLAs are clearly outlined, and their engineers are easy to understand and their ticket opening flow is simple enough.
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    IBM Cloud Object Storage

    • Unexpected errors are known to occur when downloading/uploading files.
    • Not easy to get started. In order to take full advantage of the platform and its features, additional training and reading documentation is needed.
    • The UI of the platform can get a bit confusing and it's easy to get lost.
    Ausrine S. | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Veeam Backup & Replication

    • Needs to be able to backup linux and mac instances as we have some use for that
    • I have heard nightmares for the cloud based backups and due to that I have steered from that attempt and went with a different company.
    • License costs could be better as the market has gotten more competitive in recent years.

    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.

    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

    I have been working in IT sector for more than 15 years. I have worked with various vendors. IBM's sales team, support team have been really helpful. After we start to use their product, their UX design team also contacted us to get feedback from us. They are really interested about our experience.

    Support response can be slow and sometimes tedious if you have a non-generic issue in your environment. Due to my experience with Veeam, I often discover the solutions before support does, but on the rare occasion where I need a higher tier of support, their experience and skill set are excellent. If you truly find something odd in your environment, Veeam Support, Development and their teams of engineers will figure it out and provide custom hot-fixes when necessary.

    I just researching and applying the tools on their platforms to ensure a good learning path, based on my needs. Reading the documentation related with resources, tools. Is too big, but I am trying to know more about it every day. It is a good way to know more about their resources. A new way to attract new customers. At the end of the day, we are all involved in improvement and automation of our tasks and resources for customers and end-users.

    IBM's professional service for migrating data and implementing new cloud environment was perfect. They started to help us before we begin to bring together all data such as how can it could be best to transfer all data without problems. During the migration they watched all the process closely to prevent any failure. Lastly, after the migration, they gave us trainings on implementation.

    (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).

    Veeam Backup & Replication

    We used Zerto and CA Arcserve to address these needs without migrating to Veeam Backup & Replication. Zerto 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.

    Scalability can be addressed in many ways, but there is a consequence:
    Higher performance and smaller backup windows may put too much stress on
    production storage, and therefore, on its performance and Availability
    to production workloads. To reduce stress on production storage, version
    9.5 introduces a new way of reading VM disks that is optimized for
    enterprise storage.

    Return on Investment

    IBM Cloud Object Storage

    • This allows us to recommend a platform to our clients that will quickly help them create new, efficient business processes with very little development.
    • This saves clients hours and days of manual analysis of images, allowing the system to do the work when attaching Object Storage to models.
    • There is a learning curve in utilizing the storage and the modeling, but once up and running, it works well during deployment.
    Dana Rafiee | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Veeam Backup & Replication

    • Veeam Backup & Replication made it possible to restore a crashed virtual server quickly and without problems to another Hyper-V host. With Windows Server Backup it would have taken longer and more effort to get the same result.
    • With Veeam Backup & Replication we're making sure we have a good and functional backup which makes our software developers feel safer that their projects are really getting backupped
