Onsite storage needs and backing up to Azure.

Veeam Backup & Replication

I think its perfect for all virtualized environments large or small. It's easy to set up and maintain so even small companies without much IT employees can rely on good backups. If you don't require any fancy backup things, you just want to have a reliable backup of your VM's, installation and configuration won't take more than one hour.

Pros

Cons

StorSimple

  • Additional fail-over functionality
Scott Lerner | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • Not easy to find on the homepage.
  • It's very hard to find prices, which is a big deterrent to me as a buyer.
  • High barrier to entry for prices for very small companies. I'd rather pay than use the free option, but it's prohibitively expensive for me as a 1-person company.

If I wanted to use just onsite storage the StorSimple device is already paid for.

I really have no complaints about Veeam Backup & Replication. Their service has been excellent and the cost is minimal in comparison to other services I checked out. Implementation wasn't simple and the Veeam Support team was there to help each step of the way.

We've been using Veeam Backup & Replication for several years in our
organization, and we perform backups in all of our environments every
night. It’s one of the simplest yet effective and reliable solutions in
the market for the backup segment. You can check out the free Veeam
agent, so you can get an idea of the full product.

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%.

To identify a bottleneck in the data path, Veeam Backup & Replication
detects the component with the maximum workload, the component
that works for the most time of the job. For example, you use a
low-speed storage device as the backup repository. Even if VM data is
retrieved from the SAN storage on the source side and transported over a
high-speed link, VM data flow will still be impaired at the backup
repository.

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 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).

Easy to use and highly compatible with our MSFT Hyper-V environment
Scott Lerner | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
