I am currently working for a company where we utilize Veeam Backup and replication to back up two to three hundred virtual machines. We also take advantage of backing up a number of physical systems. We use the backup software to solve the issue of a potential disasters or simply when a user makes a mistake with a single file.
  • Runs reliably - rarely do we see failures
  • has great reporting capability
  • Is easy to set up and maintain
  • Add the ability to choose the network for the destination VM location
  • The "Delete source VM" option should be DISABLED by default, not enabled
  • There are not that many cons to the product it really does work great.
Many times we have used the tool to restore systems, both partial and full restores to solve issues that users have put us into. As not as the backup ran successfully, which it does 99.9% of the time, we have been able to make a successful restore of the system. It has not let us down.

We acquired Veeam Backup & Replication as part of a turnkey solution from another vendor. However, we had been strongly considering it as a replacement for EMC Networker and even submitted a capital budget request for the cost of licensing, so no matter how it landed in our shop we wanted it for its feature set and reputation. We had demo'd the product a few years ago but held off on the purchase. I wish we hadn't waited.
  • Setup is a breeze.
  • Migrating configuration to another server is also a breeze.
  • Reporting is a bit wanting in our edition. Not configurable and no daily summary of jobs.
  • Odd error messages that aren't very helpful, but there are often KB articles.
This is a full featured backup solution for VMware and integrated environments. There are no user agents to install on servers, which is a huge plus. Veeam Backup & Replication also works natively with several storage vendors, enhancing the value of the package tremendously. Backing up from hardware-based snaps is brilliant and a great time saver.

We currently use Veeam Backup & replication to protect two separate, medium-sized VMWare environments. Each environment has in the region of 200 VM's protected. We found Veeam to be efficient and generally straightforward for both taking and managing backups and bring us into compliance for disaster recovery policies in place in the business.
  • Protecting (backing up) all our server infrastructures.
  • Ease of recovery of data. Especially for user data, it is quick and efficient to recover data when needed.
  • Compliance with DR plans.
  • Errors are often difficult to diagnose with complex error messages that don't mean much.
  • Software updates often cause other issues with storage hardware which then require firmware updates.
  • Reporting could be better. We currently use a 3rd party tool to report as the built-in reporting doesn't seem to be too good.
In our use case, two backup VMWare infrastructures, it is very good, if not a little expensive. Generally speaking, it is low maintenance and trouble-free and provides an industry-standard to protect our VMs. We use a variety of different storage mediums including SAN, NAS, and Tapes, and it is quite happy interfacing with all of the above. I wouldn't hesitate to use it again in any new environments.

Veeam is being used to backup our virtual systems to a local NAS and a Veeam Cloud Connect repository. In addition, the Veeam Availability Console is used to monitor, administer and manage our customer backup environments. Veeam itself addresses the issue of finding a reliable and consistent bakcup solution for our environment which we in turn recommend to all of our customers.
  • Backup transparency - unlike other vendors, Veeam's solution tells you exactly what is being backed up and where it's going to before then packing it into a single concise backup file.
  • Varied job run options - there is a large variety of customisation in how you can set your backups, backup copies and replications to run. This can be adjusted to suit any business of any size.
  • UI & Reporting - the notifications and in depth reporting available is fantastic and provide you with a huge wealth of knowledge straight out of the box. The UI is also made really easy to navigate and is bursting with information throughout.
  • 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.
I cannot recommend Veeam enough. In place of backup exec, we have seen a customers job success ratios rise from 60% to over 90% in a week. It is so much more reliable and clearly a better suited product to the workload.

I have yet to deploy Veeam into an environment and it not be appropriate.

We currently use Veeam Backup & Replication to provide weekly full and daily backups of our corporate VMware environment. Veeam Backup & Replication is used across our entire organization. Veeam Backup & Replication addresses all of our backup and replication needs as well as provide an easy to use recovery option in the unfortunate case of a VM failure.
  • Veeam Backup & Replication connects to cloud providers for replication very seamlessly and makes for a more stout DR posture.
  • Veeam Backup & Replication provides a very intuitive interface that makes getting up and running one less headache in the IT world.
  • Nothing I can think of at this time.
I have not used Veeam Backup & Replication in any other environment other than my own VMware environment. For our purposes, Veeam Backup & Replication is very well suited for our needs and has saved us a few times from a few unfortunate events. I feel strongly that Veeam Backup & Replication is extremely well suited for any VM environment that you have. If you want to have simplicity, performance, and reliability all rolled into one neat package, Veeam Backup & Replication is for you. I can honestly report that while I have been using it for 7+ years, I still have the console open as I type this review as I am trying hard to find something I don't like, but with no success.

We have replaced two products for backup of VM and file-level data, and are now using Veeam Backup & Replication. After backups were configured, we also used Veeam Backup& Replication for the replication of virtual machines from the primary data centers to the disaster recovery site, and it's very efficient. For virtual machines, it has no competitor, while for file-level, it does. More flexibility is promised in the next release. The cloud integration is superb, which makes Veeam Backup & Replication flexible to use with any backup source to any backup destination.
  • Veeam Backup for Virtual Machines has no other competition far away.
  • Veeam Agent-based backup is so efficient that we can backup workstation even over Wifi.
  • Replication of Virtual Machines smoothly and verified is also making Veeam Backup & Replication unique.
  • Veeam Backup & Replication for different platforms, including Linux, Windows, and even VMWare, is just great.
  • Offsite Job Scheduling is easy to configure and handle tape jobs is smooth.
  • It was a moment when we used Veeam Cloud to connect smoothly moved archive backup seamlessly to Cloud archive storage, enabling us to use Cloud-out to replace Tape-Out.
  • Veeam Agent jobs monitoring and retry them from a central console is the area that needs improvement.
  • Veeam Backup & Replication workstation-based agent's job status should be more visible.
  • Veeam Backup & Replication console performance also need improvement as it lacks performance when the workload is high.
  • File to tape backup for Linux folders has some issues as Linux file structure allow same name folder with different case letter. We found problems in this area.
  • We cannot make duplicate copies of Tape Cartridges on which File-level data is taken. Hence source is engaged in taking a backup (thus new backup job with fresh timestamp).
  • We try to scale Veeam Backup & Replication console - to separate Replication jobs and backup jobs for Hyper-V servers. Still, we weren't able to, as one hyper-visor can only report to one console server. Hence, if the one-Hyper-V host is configured in the replication server inventory, we cannot configure it in another Secondary instance of Veeam Backup & Replication console.
For infrastructure nowadays, where we are looking to use a public cloud resource, Veeam Backup & Replication is best-suited to either take a backup from on-premises servers or virtual machines. It also covers integrating to a public cloud resource whether you need to backup on-premises to cloud or take backup of cloud-based VM. I can't think of any area where Veeam Backup & Replication wouldn't work. It is also cost-effective as compared to competitors with the same capabilities.

We are using Veeam Backup & Replication across our environment, which includes virtual servers and physical servers. We were spending more on the backup tools and storage, Veeam has reduced that burden as our environments are small or medium businesses.
  • Scaling up and scaling out in Veeam is very easy when you have an enterprise plus license.
  • Very good at virtual environment backup as it processes only block level data.
  • Very easy to migrate data from one environment to another.
  • Backup data is not dependent on Veeam Server (Backup server) like other products.
  • If you have backed up data files and catalog files in the media or storage then you can restore data from importing in any Veeam environment.
  • Easy setup and management.
  • They have a lot to improve in the reporting part as reporting came with Veeam once it does not come with Veeam Backup & Replication.
  • Backup copy job concept has GFS copy data but there are limitations to scheduling as there is no room for flexible schedules. We have to go with what is available.
  • Veeam cloud connect is a little complex to set up and expensive and has a lot of limitations.
  • Direct offsite to Cloud object storage is not supported.
This tool is best suited for small and medium environments. Server performed well in our use cases
It is not suited for enterprise level or a large environment as managing becomes fuzzy.

Veeam Backup Review

It is being used as a data centre backup tool. It backups most of our systems running on VMware, for example, MS Exchange, AD, financial systems, service desk systems, etc. We use the incremental injection feature which ensures the last back is the latest backup version.
  • Backup of VMware VMs.
  • Forever forward incremental backup.
  • Veeam upgrade had some software issues and had to reinstall.
It is well suited for any business that runs on a virtualization platform such as Hyper-V or VMware. The maintenance and support are minimal as the software can run automatically and notify you of any issues should they occur.

We integrated Veeam Backup & Replication with EMC VNX 5400 and HP P4300 G2 storage. We used it across the whole organization. It will resolve a lot of issues, like item level recovery of Active Directory, Exchange, and Database. It was help us to make off-site backups in other geographical locations in Saudi Arabia.
  • Its item level recovery is superb and easy to use for all admins.
  • Its WAN Acceleration feature will help admins to take off-site backups with maximum throughput.
  • Its error logs are very pathetic and need to be simpler to understand by young/junior administrators.
  • Reporting needs more improvement, and we need to use 3rd-party software for effective reporting.
In my point of view, Veeam Backup & Replication is well suited for active DR solution with EMC Data Domain on both locations by using its encryption feature to transmit data in secure ways.
In the scenario of taking backup on cloud, Veeam Backup & Replication is less appropriate, so I would suggest to use its deduplication and file compression feature to resolve this issue.

We are using Veeam Backup & Replication as primary
backup tool for all critical physical and virtual servers. It is used by our IT
department. It helps us protect us from corrupt datacenter servers. Although we are safe from any disaster, we keep restoring backups in test environments. We are very satisfied with Veeam Backup & Replication.
  • Bare Metal Recovery
  • Application-aware backups
  • Best support ever experienced from any vendor
  • Recover physical server backup as VM
  • Backup & recovery for Database & Active Directory Servers need to be improved
  • Perpetual licenses for physical servers required
  • License policy must be more clear and understandable
Best for virtual environments; good for a physical server. We are using Veeam Backup & Replication in an environment for both physical and virtual servers. We did face some issues in Active directory restoration, but Veeam
support rocks. They helped us resolve the issue with extensive support. Veeam Backup is suited for both physical and virtual environments.

Currently, we are using Veam Backup Replication Community Edition across the whole group of clinics that make up San Pablo Group. It's helping us to have a reliable, fast and easy to use and manage backup solution. Some of the clinics had no backup solution and others had solutions that were not giving us the results we expected.
  • Backup and restore speed.
  • Lot's of technical information.
  • Trustworthy backups.
  • And excellent start to start designing a DRP strategy.
  • Granular restoring
  • Reports
  • Mutisite integration
Well suited: And organization with critical assets to be protected, any industry, any size. I think Veeam Backup is so versatile that it can suite almost any type of organization, that's why I won't mention any particular scenario. You can download, install, configure and have backups running in less than an hour.

It is currently being used to back up our VMware infrastructure which includes our production VMs.
  • Ease of use
  • Single pane of glass for backups
  • When success emails get sent it would be nice to know what backup was successful. Was it full or incremental, for example?
I feel like it really shines on the virtualization side. If you don't have a virtual environment I feel like the implementation may be a little different.

Veeam Backup & Replication (Veeam) is used to backup production systems in the IT department. The biggest problem it solves is financial--in that Veeam is free of charge. It solves the other issue of being easy to use, which is always a bonus. Backup programs either are difficult to use or extremely slow at retrieving a good copy. Veeam's file-level restore is heaven on earth for busy sysadmins.
  • It is very fast. Disk-to-disk backup is extremely fast.
  • Veeam is easy to use. Even someone who hasn't used it before can figure out how to restore a file in a few minutes.
  • It uses a standard filesystem style hierarchy for file retrieval, which makes it very efficient when searching for a single file to restore.
  • I would like some sort of manifest of backed up files to search through before attempting to find the file through the interface.
  • Rather than selecting the backup to restore from, I'd like to select the file, see all of its versions, and then decide which version to restore.
Veeam is particularly good at disk-to-disk backup. I'm not sure how it would work over a network or to an external disk or array. I'm sure it would be fine but local disk-to-disk is very fast and I've never had any issues with failures or corruption. If you have enough space available, multiple snapshots during a day would be especially suited to Veeam. I'm not sure how effective it would be over a WAN link or as a DR solution.

We use Veeam Backup & Replication in-house for our own infrastructure as well as manage it for a number of our customers.
  • Replication Failover
  • Off-site backup copy to our cloud connect infrastructure
  • VBR console manageability
  • The ability to automate backup verification. Currently to verify backup validity we have to do a file level restore and extract a file manually.
It is well suited for a range of scenarios, primarily for managing the backup and replication of the whole server environment.

It is less suited for backing up just one station. VEEAM Agent works better there instead of the whole vbr suite.

Veeam backs up everything. Makes for easy file and whole server restores. This helps keep our infrastructure backed up and easily recoverable.
  • Veeam backs up almost anything you want. This allows companies to back up their data no matter the platform it's installed on.
  • File-level restore is very simple. You can either restore over the original file or copy it to another location.
  • Integration with SANs. This allows you to tie into most SAN and utilize storage snapshots. This prevents the "stun" that happens when VCenter removes the snapshot.
  • I would love to see Veeam be able to continually replicate data.
  • Linux backup proxies would be nice to use instead of having to pay for another windows VM.
  • Full VM recovery speeds aren't as fast as I would like to see.
If you have a data center, you need Veeam to at least back up your data. If you want, it can also replicate that data offsite. In any business, things happen and having the ability to restore servers and files in a short period of time is great.

We use Veeam to backup all of our VMWare infrastructure across all of our locations. IT is the primary user, but obviously Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity is a service that touches every department in our company.
With Veeam we can backup and restore much more efficiently than we could previously.
  • Veeam really is a "set it and forget it" backup solution.
  • Veeam can take over our SQL backing up so we have an additional layer of security with our data.
  • Veeam can quickly restore files and is non-disruptive to the rest of the infrastructure.
  • It seems that the Fully VM restore takes longer than it should - hours, not minutes.
  • Even file-level restore takes longer than expected.
For the price, Veeam is a great tool for backup, recovery, DR, etc. There are a few tools out there that are WAY more expensive that do it faster, but Veeam is the right fit for our business.

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.
  • Extremely reliable product.
  • Easy integration with most virtualization solutions.
  • High consistency data ratio.
  • Training may not be widely available.
  • It could be more user-friendly in certain configuration screens.
  • The promised response time could be improved.
We run backups every night with Veeam Backup & Replication, and I can say we almost never have had any issue with the solution, and in the rare event that we do, the resolution of the issue is pretty quick thanks to the great support team and information found through the community.

Veeam is protecting VMs throughout our entire organization. It represents 600 VMs and 85 TB.
It protects all type of workloads except mission-critical databases which are protected by Netbackup.
  • Easy to deploy.
  • Ease of administration.
  • Ease of backup monitoring.
  • The replication model is not admin-friendly.
  • Retention managing can be tricky.
  • Reliability with HPE StoreOnce has decreased.
  • Not suitable for intensive usage databases.
Veeam is well suited for virtualized environments without high-level backup needs like high-performance databases. Its easy deployment system permits us to go to production very quickly. Integration with best storage constructors (EMC, HPE, PureStorage, etc.) allows very quick backups with less production impact.

We use Veeam Backup as a tool to back up all of our data locally and to an offsite location. Veeam is being used by the whole organization to backup our corporate servers. It addressed a lack of a backup strategy that we needed to be implemented and Veeam was the right solution for us.
  • Backup jobs that intergartes well with our VMware environment
  • Easy and quick restore process for OS files or VM files
  • Reporting and alerts as its gives information that we used to troubleshoot issues
  • A bug in the software that doens't delete restore points after certain amount of time
  • Mobile Management for Veeam. It would be nice to manage Veeam on a phone to troubelshoot issues.

We currently use Veeam to back up our entire enterprise and replicate the data to our colo site. This allows to maintain data integrity and be prepared in case of a disaster. Continuity is an incredibly important business need for us, and Veeam allows us to get back up and running quickly, in addition to the occasional recovery of accidentally deleted files.
  • Backups: I'm sure this doesn't need to be said, but Veeam does do backups extremely well, especially in a VMWare environment. It's fast, reliable, and easy.
  • Recovery: Having backups with no way to recover is rather pointless, so it's a good thing that Veeam has that functionality. There are a lot of options, from file-level recover (including e-mails) to entire VM restores.
  • Replication: Veeam B&R also allows for easy replication of data to multiple locations.
  • Reporting and Alerts: Veeam also has great reporting functionality, as well as alerts. I get emails every morning on all my backup jobs, and immediately if they fail.
  • Retention and clean up: Backups can be configured to merge and clean data for retention. This usually works fine, but we do occasionally run into issues where Veeam doesn't delete old data. Thanks to alerting, I know when this is the case before the datasets get too large, but it would be nice if it worked all the time.
  • Agents: For servers that aren't VMs, there is an agent that gets installed. It works fine, but in order to manage the backups and schedules for these servers, you have to log on to the server directly instead of using the main console application.
  • Options: In most cases, more options are better, but I find that a lot of the time, there are just too many, especially when it comes to how to manage data retention.
If your business is running a virtual environment, especially VMWare, there is no better option than Veeam for backups. It integrates perfectly, and because it can recover directly to a VM, makes disaster recovery that much faster. If you run all physical servers - perhaps in a small environment - the use case would be much harder to make.

We use Veeam Backup & Replication to back up the Virtual Machines in our environment. We also use it to replicate the servers to our secondary site just in case our primary site goes down. We can also use it to copy our backups to an offsite location to a third site for redundancy.
  • Easily integrates with vCenter and vSphere in our environment.
  • If a replication job fails, I can just rerun the job after I dig into what caused the issue.
  • Able to keep multiple replication points just incase of a virus or ransomware attack.
  • It is Windows-based and is vulnerable to ransomware that can find your backups and target them.
We like it in our environment where we have multiple locations and are moving stuff to the cloud. I would say it is best for small and medium-sized companies though I could foresee it getting expensive for larger companies.

Veeam is utilized as one of the backup options for my clients. It is software-based (versus a BDR appliance) and is very efficient for backing up servers internally or offsite. The software is used for the entire organization's systems and data and solves the problem of backing up data and infrastructure.
  • Create initial image level and agent based backups of servers.
  • Efficiently and reliably manage backup jobs.
  • Effortlessly synchronize data offsite with minimal labor and monitoring.
  • It is only software based, one must supply their own BDR and/or storage location.
  • While flexible, the software needs to run on a Windows-based appliance, bring your own appliance/OS license.
For a software-based backup solution, Veeam is the best option. I have worked with many of them including Acronis, Carbonite, MozyPro, but Veeam is the most reliable and easiest to setup and use. Would highly recommend, but it comes with a price per agent that may dissuade some from utilizing it.

Veeam is the primary backup, recovery, DR test, and archiving solution in use throughout the company. We have testable, verifiable backups of our most important assets every few minutes and SureBackup allows us to easily and repeatably test our backups.
  • Backup speed is great, especially if you use storage integration.
  • The no-nonsense data deduplication engine is seamless and trouble-free, especially useful with the WAN accelerator, which deduplicates replicated data before sending it across the wire.
  • The restoration UI is straightforward, and restores are fast and easy.
  • Does not support Basic Availability Groups with shared-nothing storage ("cluster-less") on SQL Server Standard Edition.
  • Does not support restoring files backed up from SERVER1, to SERVER2.
  • REST API does not support retrieving information about tape media (have to use Powershell instead for automation).
If you like functional, verifiable backups and don't mind paying a premium for it, Veeam has you covered. If you're in a budget crunch or would simply rather spend your time troubleshooting failed jobs, failed backup software components, and DR test failures, choose something else.

We use Veeam both in house and for a number of our customers. It's cost-effective, easy to implement and manage, and makes managing backups a pleasure instead of a tedious task. For our customers utilizing virtual environments, it's the perfect solution.
  • It's easy to implement and manage.
  • It has a robust logging and reporting system.
  • Veeam is perfect for our virtual environments.
  • Veeam could be a bit more cost effective, but it's incredibly robust for the price.
  • I'd like to see a little more detail on backup reports.
  • More detailed training videos would be ideal for the less advanced users.
Veeam is perfect for a VMWare virtual environment, it lacks some options in Hyper-v environments, but these may be Microsoft limits more than anything.
