  • The application-aware processing is something we use heavily. We rely on it to protect numerous MS SQL server instances with very aggressive schedules to capture transaction logs during our workday. This gives us the ability to perform granular restores of SQL data with no loss.
  • Veeam Backup & Replication is very quick to perform backup and restore operations using commodity hardware, which is much more economical than specialized platforms.
  • The license application could be overhauled to pull information from the Veeam customer portal.

  • Protects our data with nightly incremental backups
  • Allows for quick restoral of data if needed
  • Can create new 'full backups' from data sets without having to perform a full backup
  • The interface is a bit clunky...I preferred it before they 'fisher priced' the interface
  • Support can be problematic, as it takes a while to get someone to respond to a ticket; that MAY be related to Covid
  • The cost has gone up considerably in recent years.

  • Seamlessly does backup copies to other storage
  • Easy individual email restores of exchange
  • Easy testing of backups to make sure they are working correctly
  • The SureBackup needs to be able to work using physical server it would run faster
  • Its tape backup is simple, which makes it good, but I could see where it could need more functionality
  • If there was a way to support more hyper-converged environments like HPE SimpliVity
  • The license model is changing from per socket to something else, and that will actually cost us more money in the long run
