Veeam Backup and Replication is well suited in areas of data warehouse rather than relational databases. A data warehouse is a database system where the data is huge and historical. These databases are used rarely and used for occasional references. Apart from that relational data are the one used on a regular basis

we have found great value in veeam thanks to the ransomware portection it provides and the ease of set it and forget end to end backup and recovery. it allows our team to no worry and not have to constantly manually check status, it's all available via reports and notifications but the work is all done automaticlaly.

I think the only real issues with giving Veeam a 10 is that the resources taken by the VSS processes, as well as the toll taken on a host are hard to rationalize. We have seen issues with hosts being brought to sub-optimal performance while a backup is taking place. We have also seen hosts that take longer to backup their guests because the resources are over-utilized, especially for management and disk access.

Setup and configuration was very easy. Just basic IT knowledge is sufficient to setup Veeam. Once setup, daily vm replicate was very easy to manage. You will get an email alert once replicate job successfully or fail. Backup configuration also optionally happens daily. You will not lose anything if follow the correct steps.

In all scenarios where we have Vmware, Hyper V, or physical machines setup of Linux or windows, Veeam Backup & Replication is best suited in all those scenarios. Where you have Xen Server hypervisor base deployment, Veeam Backup & Replication is not much suited, we need to use agent-based backup.

The Veeam Backup & Replication solution is ideal for backups of virtualized environments. It provides agility for the backup of VMs, all in a centralized console for monitoring, making it possible to retain several restore points and restore files in a granular way without the need for backup of folders isolated, which makes management difficult. However, the Veeam Backup & Replication solution fits better in medium-large enterprise environments, as it needs a dedicated and robust datastore. The cost of its license to allow the backup of several VMs is not very affordable. For small companies, it is possible to use the free version with limitations, but it also works excellently if the environment has a simple infrastructure.

Veeam is well suited for people that have time to babysit their backups every day. If you want to continually hunt down why a backup failed or what caused it to not work one day but worked the day prior, it's perfect for you. Every single day, it's a matter of guessing which backup is going to have failed and then having to figure out how to resolve the cryptic error provided. A perfect example would be when it says it is waiting for a rescan so you perform a rescan on the backup and it fails and states it is waiting for a rescan. Makes absolutely no sense. Tons of these issues pop up throughout the entirety of the software and feels like I'm running a beta variant of the software.

Veeam has been a very useful tool for us. If it wasn’t for Veeam we would have lost a large amount of data since a few months back we had a great failure which caused almost 50% of data loss but thanks to the backups we were able to recover back all our data with ease and resume work.

Veeam Backup & Replication is well suited for most organizations' enterprise-wide backup and recovery needs. We've had good results using it to backup and restore systems running Windows, Linux, and a number of different appliances. We've used it with good results to backup and restore applications and databases running Oracle and SQL. It's well-tailored to provide both local and close-based backups and protect those backups against ransomware attacks.

A couple of months ago we had one of our older servers getting bad sectors on its disk. We tried to move the VM but it was giving errors during the process that the disk couldn't be read properly. The backups of that machine had failed for a few days too which we didn't notice directly. We tried to replicate the virtual machine and that failed with the same error. Eventually, we were able to make a backup of the VM and got it successfully restored on another server. The VM has been happily running since. In another scenario, I started migrating VMs from Xen to VMware and the initial process we were using wasn't easy. One of my colleagues suggested that we could try Veeam Agent to Veeam B&R backup and restore the VM to a VMware host from there. We tried that and it worked flawlessly. At the moment we've migrated almost all of our Xen VMs to VMware using this process and all are running without a problem on VMware now.

It has a free version for the physical environment. And you can get all backups of the system in one environment. You can trust your backup and test it easily. it is possible to create a flexible plan like full or incremental. Also, a full backup of the system is not taking up full space. It is decreasing the size of actual disk size, so you don't need to have big backup storage.

We use Veeam Backup & Replication for our individual workstation and laptop backups and replication. We have also found it to be a valuable tool in restoring servers following incomplete updates or upgrades. The ability to work with multiple virtualization platforms, like Nutanix and Hyper-V gives us the flexibility to deploy to our entire private cloud.

Had a number of server failures that we have used Veeam to restore, this has been a simple vm recovery process where downtime had to be kept to the minimum, and restores complete successfully and we were able to get back to production

Guest file restore while it is a common use, is easily overshadowed (no pun intended) by shadow copies, an integrated solution into windows file servers with the same features would be interesting too see

Veeam backup is well suited for small to mid-sized companies like the one I am a part of. The price point and the functionality of the software make the program well worth the investment and provide peace of mind when it comes to securing company data. Veeam could be an invaluable resource for securing data from ransomware attacks.

Veeam Backup & Replication works very well for simple VM backups, more advanced backups of application data such as Active Directory objects, on-premise Exchange, and MS SQL. It allows us to use a very common process and interface to protect multiple workloads. I would like to see Veeam Backup & Replication be able to backup hosted Exchange mailboxes, such as Microsoft365 accounts or even Dropbox.

We're currently using it with physical servers, which doesn't seem to be the expected situation. It works, but all the documentation and the support people expect you to be running in a VM environment. We will be switching to VMWare shortly, but it's a bit annoying to have to keep correcting people and translating for our actual situation.

I've used other products that are better at protecting the data (faster backups, more recovery points), like the Datto Siris, but they're much more expensive. To protect the same size data set with Datto would require about $50,000 purchase and $5,000 monthly expenses.

For day-to-day backup (of VMs, datastores, etc.), it's easily the best I've seen just getting the job done. Replication is a nice "extra" that is way more feature-rich than (for example) Microsoft's native Hyper-V offering. I can't think of any major issues - my first experience of Veam was at a job where it was already in place. When I left there for a new job I quickly replaced the existing system with Veeam - you can't get a better recommendation!

Veeam is we’ll suited to on site virtual environments. The cloud solutions are robust and are advancing regularly. We have used this for quick restores when needed, and full virtual servers of over 5 TB of data and it handled it well. Using Veeam over a WAN could do with improvement.

It is a solid product and has been for years. Very mature and hardly ever has any issues. It just works, and it does it well. Considering all the data it has to process, it is actually fairly quick. We can back up all our systems in a small window of time without the systems experiencing any downtimes or outages.
