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.

Prior to going with Veeam Backup & Replication, we used Backup Exec to backup up our VMs and data files to tape. The big difference between those two has been the ability of Veeam Backup & Replication to back up to disk first then copy those backups to tape giving us both the ability to take backups off-site and keep local copies of backups to more quickly restore as needed. We considered the possibility of staying with Backup Exec but found that the majority of organizations I spoke with recommended Veeam Backup & Replication as a more robust and full-featured options. Veeam Backup & Replication is slightly more expensive that Backup Exec though I think it is worth the extra cost.

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.

  • NAKIVO Backup & Replication
Comparing the consoles, Veeam Backup & Replication, we feel, has a better UI--more logical. The creation of jobs is "select and click next" on both tools but Veeam has more options regarding the backup job. They are visually different but we feel that Veeam is more logical than Nakivo. The placement of menu items is better in Veeam than Nakivo, but Nakivo uses a browser for presentation while Veeam is a Windows app, so the UI is different for both tools. Both products do the job and do it right. On the storage side, the directories and names used by Veeam have more meaning in contrast to Nakivo, which uses names like serial numbers.

We have supported and used Veeam with our clients, so the solution definitely had an advantage over all of them except Tivoli. But, the [ease of] deployment really got our hearts. Did I mention we spent only 6 hours deploying it, whereas Nakivo took us 2 days to just understand the basics, and Backup Exec didn't even work on the first run?

Previously we only used the standard built-in backup features of Microsoft Windows Server. It was ugly. So we started researching for a solution that met our requirements. Of course, we started with the famous names. The first of them was Veeam Backup & Replication. It's fully met our expectations and we have stopped researching. We believe in love at first sight. If the product or solution is doing all that you need it to that means that it's not necessary to spend your time with further searches.

We used to use Backup Exec before we starting using VMware. However, once we started to virtualize our environment, we could no longer use a product that was not built from the ground up for virtualizing. Veeam has so many more options than Backup Exec has and we know our restores will work. We also don't have to worry about if the user interface will change every version.

Before using Veeam Backup & Replication, we tried other backup and restore software and tools. Veeam Backup & Replication stacks up against them for being more user friendly, quicker on backup and restore tools, creating more detailed reports, and simpler to replicate jobs around the infrastructure.

  • HYCU Backup & Recovery for Nutanix, Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery and Veritas Backup Exec
A Veeam differentiator with the different vendors was its agility in management and its native integration to the Vmware hypervisor, Hyper-v and Nutanix Acropolis. Also a feature that positions it as a good option for backups, is that it includes the ability to backup the data of users such as laptops and desktops thanks to its agent. On the reliability side, you can make copies of backups from one repository to another at a remote location, as well as to the S3 cloud for archiving.

Veeam is the best choice for virtual and hybrid environments. We like the cost, licensing model, and extended feature set. It's simple to monitor, manage jobs and backup new virtual instances. It has never let us down.

Veeam is much more robust than ShadowProtect, while also fitting the budget requirements for some very small environments that previously used CloudBerry. We think this is pretty impressive to have both breadth and depth and maintain reasonable price points to keep on budget. There have been a few times we've thought about evaluating other solutions, but have such a solid expertise across the board with our team we also don't want to have to learn a new product in parallel and identify shortcomings.

I used to use CommVault backup. It too is a great backup solution. I used it to protect the same infrastructure. The problem with that was that is was just too complicated. It didn't have to be like that. A backup solution shouldn't need a vendor's "university" for a user to be successful with its solution.
