Veeam Backup & Replication

Should you have a virtualization infrastructure based on Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware vSphere, should you host several virtual machines some in production, some in acceptance, should you have a business model where you do regular upgrades and deploy new releases or just want to have a backup capability in case of business critical application requiring disaster recovery capabilities, should you keep backup footprint as small as possible, care for a community edition for smaller businesses and full edition for more corporate environment, this tool is for you.

Veritas NetBackup

Like most enterprise backup applications, Symantec NetBackup (NBU) suffers from complexity. Using and understanding advanced features can be challenging at times. Real world experience is needed to know if they are worth the time to implement. On the other hand I have found NBU relativity easy to use with a little training from just a simple backup scheduling and restore perspective.

Pros

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • It offers various backup types. If the infrastructure can handle the forever incremental or reverse incremental options, these are very efficient on space usage.
  • The interface is easy to use. There are a lot of options within the software, but it's never felt overwhelming to figure out and adjust job settings.
  • Restores are simple and offer great options. Even full VM restores are easy to do. File-level restores offer multiple ways to restore files, such as to a different location, or the same, then making copies of any collision files.

Veritas NetBackup

  • Upgrades are typically easy and normally have either no issues or very few that are easily resolved (wait a month or 2 before upgrading)
  • Using accelerator for the vm environment works well, and file level restores have been successful
  • Full vm recovery has worked every time
  • Backing up a physical server and restoring to a vm works as described
  • GRT Exchange backups are pretty easy, to setup
  • File level restores are simple

Cons

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • It would be great to have better replication seeding so that replication jobs and backup jobs using the same VM could work concurrently. This feature is available but I have found it a little bit unreliable in past experiences.
  • It would be great to be able to see more information about a backup repository in the infrastructure tab such as disk quantities, raid versions and serial numbers.
  • Currently backup scheduling on copy jobs can be a little unclear to people without a reference model. A more guided wizard on creation of these jobs or more granular scheduling options could help less familiar users to navigate this portion of the console.
Michael Davey | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veritas NetBackup

  • The GUI is very old looking. This does not kill the performance, it just looks to be 10 years old.
  • Some things need to be done from the CLI(command line interface). if you have not used this before it will take some learning and a good understanding of Linux.

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.

Veritas continues to keep up with the backup game. There virtual machine backup capabilities are now top notch, and I believe they will prove valuable when our cloud presence demands a backup solution.

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%.

Performance

Veeam Backup & Replication

Veeam Backup & Replication 8.0
Based on 1 answer
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.

Veeam has a pretty decent knowledgebase with articles relevant to all sorts of possible issues (I'v eonly had a few). There's also a forum with searchable answers. Beyond that, submitting a ticket or calling support is easy and they're prompt. We had a licensing issue once and they helped us resolve it within a few hours, even though it wasn't strictly critical.

Veritas support is very prompt and the acknowledgement/followup is hugely appreciable. They go deep to the issue and provide you satisfactory solutions. Creating ticket in portal is also very easy, does not adhere to severity priority, even if Sev2 response is very quick.

(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

Veeam Backup & Replication

I've also used a cloud-based backup system written by Datasoft however this was a low-volume system designed for single servers or desktops. As for Backup Exec, I much prefer Veeam for the user interface and the ease of management. BE always seemed to take a lot of time to maintain and would often have issues after working for months without.
Martin Tillbrook | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veritas NetBackup

CrashPlan has the capability to sync data with a cloud storage source. This is great for a workstation where data is typically only for one user. However, Netbackup does a much better job for maintaining multiple levels of file restores for Enterprise Servers. Netbackup has a superior management console that does not rely on Cloud services in the event of an internet outage.

Scalability

Veeam Backup & Replication

Veeam Backup & Replication 8.0
Based on 1 answer
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

Veeam Backup & Replication

  • Being free of charge, it has saved us thousands on backup software.
  • It has saved a lot of time in that it is quick and easy to use for file-level restore.
  • It is an enterprise-level application that works on physical and virtual systems.
Kenneth Hess | TrustRadius Reviewer

Veritas NetBackup

  • We never experienced a significant system or data loss during the time we used NetBackup. We restored individuals files and small databases based upon user mistakes, but we never had to implement a DR plan. From that aspect, it is difficult to evaluate the ROI. Backups are a commodity service. Features are very similar across multiple tools. Once you decide to stay on-prem or move to the cloud, the list of options are narrowed. Then it becomes a matter of price.
  • From an administration and support perspective, the ROI is low. Vendor technical support is not always responsive. The first two tiers of support are not knowledgeable and their typical recommendation is to read the white paper. My small team spent a lot of time troubleshooting NetBackup, often without much vendor help.
