The Veeam Backup & Replication software works extremely well, fast and secure. Many options are available also for cloud backup (very important nowadays, even here in Germany). It's easy to set up and easy to use. There is a free 30-day-test-edition to give it a try without buying. And best of all: there is also a community edition for backing up hardware clients and PCs without costs.

It's well suited for backing up data to tape, but lacks a tape use strategy like "towers of hanoi" or similar. Restore of files is not as intuitive as it could be at the first sight. You have to use it frequently to get used to the user interface. It is not really simple to give it to a normal user.

For virtualized workloads, Veeam [Backup & Replication] is the only solution. It's performance is un-paralled in that space.

Even the Community edition provides a sub-set of tools that a SMB could use to protect it's IP/assets before committing to a full set of licenses.

[Veeam Backup & Replication] is perfect for anything from a Home Network with a Server to a SMB with a Server that wants full protection of the Server and Client/Workstations in case of the need for a Bare-Metal Restore due to hardware failure or Ransomware/Malware.
Veeam works, it is very reliable, handles multiple back-up destinations, Bare-Metal restore is effortless and it is easy to manage.

In general terms, the application is fully recommended since it has a remarkable reliability for the safekeeping of all important information for an organization. It is a much simpler alternative that will save time and internet expenses when importing data to the cloud.

Veeam Backup & Replication is well suited to environments that employ any kind of virtualization technology for their infrastructure, namely VCenter. The intuitive integration and quick setup makes backups easy and gives peace of mind that they are being completed in the manner that is desired. Veeam is less suited to environments specializing on MacOS or highly mobile environments.

Veeam B&R is the simplest and most effective backup solution I have ever worked with. Previous experience with Avamar, netbackup and Windows backup, moving to Veeam was easy and saves countless hours on maintenance. Its hardware agnostics make it great for using legacy storage that would otherwise be retired or the flexibility to use low cost storage up to enterprise storage arrays in tandem. It works great in a datacenter and in remote sites.

VMware loves Veeam! Would love to have it backing up my 12TB X 4 sites.

Easy to manage Veeam backups - just takes a few seconds to look and less time than other backup providers!

Thanks Veeam!

Veeam is ideal for virtual environments as well as for NAS backups. We are about to move some of our infrastructure to Azure and Veeam will most definitely be used to move those servers as well as backing them up.

We have tested Veeam Backup & Replication in a LAN and the performance was good. In our environment, the servers work 24x7 and there was no noticeable drop in performance so, in scenarios where the infrastructure is up and running 24x7, this is well suited. We have not tested doing a backup from another site so can't tell if it is well suited across the WAN.

We changed our backup method from daily tapes to daily backup to disk and then tape weekly. This shortened our backup windows and enabled much quicker backup windows. The ability to restore files/application-level data easily made it easier to offload this job to junior admins and free up our time.

Veeam Backup & Replication is very well suited for file-level recovery as well as for full VM recovery when a VM snapshot is unavailable. It is a must-have tool for IT to be able to recover from a malware/ransomware attack. It now works great in backup and replication to cloud storage. As a user of many backup solutions through the years I cannot think of a better solution than Veeam Backup & Replication.

Veeam Backup & Replication is very powerful and flexible. We do use it for backups, copy of backup jobs to external storage and replication for backups to an off-site location and it just works. I even use it for my computers at home and found the ease of use and reliability of the backups very valuable. I don't fear losing data with Veeam as I have with other backup software.

General backup and recovery it is the best. Replication is outstanding, Individual File recovery had saved us many times on our departmental servers. In replication you can snapshot the replicas about every 5 minutes to cover any changes to cover your main systems. We do this with all or SQL servers and has been excellent when issues arise.

Multiple locations is a great and beneficial use, cloud servers and backup. Fast backup and recovery.
Maybe too expensive for a small backup enviroment but there are some free options that are 2nd to none
