If you are in a highly virtualized infrastructure, Clumio is the only choice right now. It was built in the cloud, for the cloud, and handles on-premise environments very well. If your environment is lots of physical servers or lots of database servers, maybe start with a slower rollout of Clumio, but do not go with something else. Clumio is the answer to backup, now and in the future!

I like the idea of using this product for backups and cold storage. This allows for long retention times and a very low cost. The ability to quickly restore and the efficiency of all the products involved. I haven't come across scenarios where it isn't appropriate. I don't have a lot of experience so for me, it works well in my cases.
Read full review Pros Offers a highly predictable cost model for all of our environments. Easy to manage. One set of policies for all over our VM servers. Read full review Veeam Backup for AWS provides a comprehensive backup and disaster recovery solution for AWS workloads. It's very easily integrated with the AWS cloud. The Simple and intuitive user interface of Veeam Backup for AWS makes it easy to set up and manage backups for AWS instances. Read full review Cons Since Clumio is a new product, it is not as feature-rich as some of the incumbents, but it is still a superior product. Customized reporting capabilities are needed for this product. Read full review We have never managed to use Veeam for Azure or GCP. It works well with AWS. A client needed a multi-cloud DR solution management but we had a security issue and could find a solution from Veeam Backup for AWS. Usually, you need a dedicated resource to monitor when the number of workloads is high. That adds to the cost. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
We have been using Veeam Backup for AWS for our cloud hosted solutions for the last several years and will continue to do so. The ease of use and available support staff make the learning curve for use nearly flat in our case and having Veeam Backup for on-premise workloads makes the decision easy.

Veeam Backup has never failed me, whenever we have needed to recover data it has worked flawlessly. It is highly available and I do not know of of a situation where our business has needed Veeam Backup fo AWS and has not been able to access or use it in some way.
Read full review Performance
We have not really noticed much difference and only notice it when doing work afterhours with our veeam being backed up. However, this is not the case as we do not do this often and hence we don't really have any real challenges for performance issues. Overall, we find that the performance is pretty good

Clumio support thas been both responsive, definitive, and helpful. They have been great to deal with as we have worked our way from Proof of Concept, to production roll out. They are quick to answer emails, and also alert us when they see a potential issue. These new "proactive" vendor support models are great to experience

One of the best and leading backup solution with central management for all Virtual Servers, Physical servers and Application level backup. Migrated from distributed backup solution running at each site to central VEEAM solution which has reduced overhead of backup administrator and improves the backup performance. Veeam team is very supportive in solution design, taken care of all our requirements and provided the cost effective solution.

We had only one due to the pandemic, but we remember really enjoying the help. Someone came to our site and walked us through the process and we had lots of time to ask questions and got really helpful solutions and tips and tricks to make sure that staff would understand and learn how to use it

The training provided online was good. The training was restrictive to users but was content was good and informative. The information provided was relevent and flow was maintained well. The Question and answers were good and supported well. Need to have more material provided with the training and will support users to adopt train the trainer approach.

We were pretty happy with our implementation as it was simple to deploy and we followed the technical guide online with out much technical assistance from vendor support. We had also tested and streamlined a process based on our own documentation for our own company which was simple to follow overall for deploying into AWS for future instances
Read full review Alternatives Considered
There was nothing like Clumio to evaluate. We did look at some of the incumbent on-premise solutions that have cloud-based offerings. They all require hardware infrastructures to accomplish their job, thereby locking you into having to manage and update hardware. Clumio displaces these systems by offering a true cloud-based backup with no need to manage hardware, or maintain hardware, or manage software upgrades. And new features are added all the time without having to upgrade!

I had looked at N2WS Backup & Recovery backup and disaster recovery solution for AWS environments. But while it provides similar backup and recovery capabilities as Veeam Backup for AWS, it lacks some of the advanced features such as instant VM recovery, file-level recovery, and integration with Veeam Backup & Replication.

Overall, we pretty happy with the way it is contracted and the pricing structure. However, as stated we got it on promotion so we wont know until what it is after the 3 years but at this stage we are pretty happy with the product and the pricing from the commercial aspect

We have found that Veeam Backup on AWS is very reliable as we have had it running for about a year and only have had it failed daily a few times and that was due to outages or servers that was part of our maintainance. We also like how the testing and verification of our backups is an excellent feature to confirm we can restore to the previous backup

Read full review Return on Investment We are able to get rid of an aging backup infrastructure and free up expensive rack space. Read full review The only thing is that you have to make sure you understand your AWS costs if your retention periods are not kept under control. ROI is hard to prove until the moment you need to restore your workload. Time-saving is something that comes to mind. Before Veeam, we used to spend/waste a lot of time verifying and testing our backup and restore. Veeam makes it easy with its SureBackup technology.
