Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager is well suited for Windows domain environments where you need to make backups of Hyper-V virtual machines or bare metal servers. It is possible to backup SQL databases, works pretty well, but sometimes needs consistency checks on backups to properly continue to backup databases. Easy to restore anything to production or to another location.

  • The reporting could use some work. If you have a client who has some serious audit controls in place, you may find yourself creating the report versus depending on the system do that piece for you.
  • My complaint would be with the notification emails. They are not configurable and come out regardless of whether a backup set completed or is still running.
  • The scheduling is a little clunky. It would be much nicer if the backup could be "continuous" anytime it's connected to the Internet (similar to Carbonite).

Veeam is very easy to use once fully on-boarded and trained. Part of the reason we can respond to a critical situation swiftly is that it is so easy to use. We did take 2 years to be fully comfortable with the product as we tested it with others, but once we committed to Veeam, there was no question about it.

At the moment I cannot say anything bad about the overall provided services. It's holding me back to put the mark even higher as other cloud solutions have their advantages as well, so I can't rate this one higher than competitor ones. However the experience is really positive to the moment and it has delivered always.

Veeam BLOWS AWAY Veritas in terms of reliability, recoverability, and Especially PRICE! Veritas is literally thousands of dollar more than comparable Veeam Software. Veritas's support is virtually non-existent. I believe the only reason Veritas is even still in business is because of their reputation as the ONLY backup software a decade or more ago. If you use Veritas, I HIGHLY recommend throwing it away and trying out Veeam - You will NOT go back to Veritas!
