Pros and Cons

  • Automatic backup for clients.
  • Set it and forget it, no attention needed.
  • Free consumer edition to give the whole thing a try without remorse.
  • Not easy to find on the homepage.
  • It's very hard to find prices, which is a big deterrent to me as a buyer.
  • High barrier to entry for prices for very small companies. I'd rather pay than use the free option, but it's prohibitively expensive for me as a 1-person company.

Pros and Cons

  • Easy to set up.
  • Intuitive interface.
  • Alert notification is clear and concise. Easy to get to the root of a problem.
  • Support is great! Quick response, knowledgeable techs, take ownership of an issue.
  • Perhaps some examples of how to set up Veeam given a certain scenario (some of the more common solutions).
  • Something to let a new user know that when you click "Next" on the restore selections, there will be a 'pause', and that it is not restoring the entire volume while you are waiting for the file selection window to load.

Pros and Cons

  • The ability to perform transaction and redo log backups on a constant schedule give exceptional point-in-time restore ability.
  • That Veeam still supports air-gap backup to tape is invaluable. Also that it manages retention policies between disk and tape is a life saver.
  • Veaam's ability to compress data as it backups saves both time and space on both capacity and performance storage.
  • The ability to include Transaction and Redo logs as part of a SOBR would be a very important option to have.
  • Perhaps it already exists, but some way to automate a scheduled restore from all tiers of storage (Performance, Capacity and Tape) would give the admin the security in knowing that in the case of an emergency all the components were working.
  • Some method to make Performance-tier backups immutable.

  • Bare-Metal Restore using a Simple Thumb Drive!
  • Complete Backups of Client Workstations to the Server
  • Supporting Multiple External Backup Hard drives (destinations) to allow for off-site storage of Backups, etc.
  • Data Deduplication should be easier to implement for Client Workstation Backups

Pros and Cons

  • The most notable thing about the application is that it is not necessary to use our bandwidth for very long periods of time since the application performs the backups in a very fast way.
  • The backups are performed completely without any interruption. We can perform OneDrive or Exchange backups simultaneously.
  • In cases of failures in importing or exporting backups, the application does not express a reason why it stopped or an error occurred.
  • Also, for the deletion of accounts in Veeam Backup there is a very extensive and complicated process to delete licenses and data.
  • It should have a better startup wizard to perform backups and connect to Office 365.

Pros and Cons

  • Consistant fast backups.
  • Robust backup files that are portable and don't need the original backup server to restore.
  • Simplicity of setup and restoring files.
  • Versatility of working with different types and tiers of storage.
  • When using HPE catalyst the displayed values of backed up data and transferred data is erroneous.
  • Quick restore of changed blocks only doesn't work well on application servers.

Pros and Cons

  • Backup VMs with flexible data retention schedules
  • Replicate backups accross local repository (Windows -> FreeNAS)
  • Usefull notifications in case of warnings / errors. Allows 'Fire and Forget'
  • Easy to browse and restore available backups
  • Updates are not easy to locate and download, would be nice to be able to download updates from within Veeam itself.
  • In my case, I have a cryptic error message when trying to restore from replicated repository (but the data is there).
  • UI takes a bit of time to get used. Easy to use when you understand the logic behind it.
