Tivoli Storage Manager

Tivoli does well running file-level backups, but Exchange is clunky and restores are really hard. With no SharePoint agent, if you use SharePoint you will need another product like AvePoint DocAve. The web-based GUI console is MUCH improved over earlier versions, but you will still need to be a command-line guru to make Tivoli do everything, and local (node) config files still rule. This product was originally ported from Unix and retains may of its 'nix roots.

Veeam Backup & Replication

I think Veeam Backup & Replication Community Edition is well suited to virtual environments where some VM is not that big, so you can use PowerShell script which runs Veeam Backup of smaller VM, and then u can create a schedule in task scheduler so it runs automatically. Keep in mind that VeemZip always makes a full backup copy, so a bigger VM will take a longer time to create a backup.

Pros

Tivoli Storage Manager

  • The concept of "forever incremental" is very appealing to my understanding of how backups should happen.
  • The backups are tuned for fast restores and they sure are fast.
  • The media management is very good.
Anonymous | 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.

Cons

Tivoli Storage Manager

  • I do not see anything at the moment that requires change or adjusting. TSM works great for what we need it to do.
  • Note worth mentioning: We never had the opportunity to explore the VM backup functionality, as we are currently using VMware snapshots. This data protection solution came highly recommended to any business environment running VWware / virtualization.
Anonymous | 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.

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.

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%.

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

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).

Alternatives Considered

Tivoli Storage Manager

Tivoli no longer has a SharePoint agent, others do. We are looking at a product that is agentless (runs in VMWare) to relieve our staff from installing and maintaining agents on 300 servers.
Scott Reese | 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.

Return on Investment

Tivoli Storage Manager

  • Simple, care free backups, especially if you do not use tapes and do not have to manage those.
  • Very fast restores as the libraries have everything available online.
  • Ease of locating the necessary data to restore
Anonymous | 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
