It is very well suited in an environment where the customer wants to backup up and replicate Virtual Machines in the cloud or on physical servers on-premises. Also, the Office 365 backup feature should save the customer a lot of headaches by making immutable backups of the mailboxes.

I've been working with nearly every backup program for more than 25 years from small shops to corporations with thousands of users. Vembu BDR [Suite] is a great product for any business, large or small. It is missing a couple of options that maybe the most popular one has but it doesn't prevent protecting your business. When budget is an issue it's by far the best option. Being able to provide it to our clients is an added bonus since that makes it so much easier to manage when everyone is using the same product. When it comes to technical support, I haven't experienced support like Vembu Support in years. They are quick to respond, happy to remotely connect if desired and seem to really understand their product well. Many others I've worked with refuse to help, and send responses that have nothing to do with my question or they simply provide a link to a document and basically tell me to read and figure it out myself. Often that document does not relate to my issue. I've always done my research before contacting support and that kind of response is one of the biggest reasons we decided to look elsewhere and after many trials and deep testing, ultimately switched to Vembu. Vembu has been rock solid, fast, and tech support has been top-notch.

The biggest place I would say that VembuBDR is less appropriate is when you have the desire to backup your physical systems to multiple internal storage devices and want a secondary backup as a safety net and don’t want to risk that the backup itself is corrupt or infected and your only other option is a mirrored copy of that data.

I know they are working hard on adding features and I’m excited to know version 5 is releasing soon.

Pros

Veeam Software

  • Ease of configuration.
  • Works well with Hyper-V and VMWare ESXi VMs.
  • Simple restore methods allow for easy restore verification or VM replication.
  • Very affordable pricing compared to other similar products.
  • Sales and technical support are knowledgeable about their product, are not located overseas, and are quite responsive.

Vembu Technologies

  • Bare metal system images. These are incredibly flexible, enabling you to do dissimilar hardware restores, local or online backups and restore to VHD
  • Full, differential and transaction log backups for SQL server, ensuring rapid backup and restore, with maximum storage efficiency.
  • Incremental backups for files, meaning only the changes which have been made to a file are backed up, dramatically reducing time to backup and increasing storage efficiency.

Cons

Veeam Software

  • AHV backup functionality is not equivalent to ESXi. It uses a different distinct console and is not compatible with some advanced features such as SureBackup.
  • License renewal experience in the conversion between the legacy model and the new universal license has been very poor. We were forced to pay a significant fee to allow backups of AHV targets, but other than the change in hypervisor there was no improvement in functionality. In fact we have less since SureBackup is not supported with AHV workloads.
  • Added tools to assist in hardening the server and isolating it from inside threats would be nice to have. Most of this needs to be manually worked through to ensure an internal compromise does not also impact your backups.

  • Although its interface is simple, a web-only interface for a backup solution isn't recommended as the main interface.
  • Using PostgreSQL as the configuration DB Source is OK. But, the lack of options for the Database isn't OK. Especially on a Windows Environment, admins prefer using a centralized MS SQL Instance, and this is not possible with Vembu.
  • More work needed on SharePoint, Active Directory, and Exchange Restores. All three are critical workloads in almost any infrastructure.
  • Reporting can be greatly improved.

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.

I think the product will remain useful for us and as the company keeps improving features it will continue to be relevant and useful. We don't like switching technology much and BDR solutions shouldn't be something that a company replaces every few years., that's why most likely we will keep using it.

Usability

Veeam Software

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.

Vembu is a great solution, but it still requires some fine-tuning. The user interface for Managed Service Providers could be more streamlined. Support logs need to provide clearer information about an issue whenever there's a failure. Backup agents should have the ability to automatically update when there's a new version and support should be on-shore during US business hours.

Reliability and Availability

Veeam Software

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%.

Performance

Veeam Software

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 Rating

Veeam Software

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.

It often takes a very long time to get an issue fixed. the support folks seem committed to getting it fixed but they often seem to be trying different things and hoping something works. I did not get the sense that they had a clear idea what was wrong.

Implementation Rating

Veeam Software

(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).

It wasn't difficult at all, it fact, it was mostly simple, implementation doesn't require much skills and knowledge, but the configuration part does require some skills to create the jobs and configure certain settings, overall, its an easy implementation, especially for experienced IT People

Alternatives Considered

Veeam Software

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.

I tested Vembu against Veeam and for the price, Vembu was the better option. I also had a great support experience as I had to contact Vembu twice after mistakes I made. While using Veeam the software was not as intuitive and support responses were not as swift and accurate.

Scalability

Veeam Software

In terms of scalability for our company, Veeam was able to cover our backup needs with ease. They have options for even more individualized backup if we were to need them; i.e. if a specific workstation needs its own independent backup. We have not used these resources yet, but I am confident they will be beneficial to our company in the near future.

  • ROI is excellent, we saved a lot in hardware and time
  • We have a solid base for disaster recovery
  • We have minimized the time to restore files or even whole servers
  • We do not worry about data integrity anymore as we have multiple sites where the data is replicated to

  • For organizations that use different tools for Backup and recovery, this could be the single tool for Storage and Backup Administrators to automate and work effectively.
  • Software cost is lesser thus the money can be invested for other tools/software procurement
  • I don't think there is any negative impact as of now
