It’s one of the simplest yet effective and reliable solutions in the market for the backup segment. You can check out the free Veeam agent, so you can get an idea of the full product.,Extremely reliable product. Easy integration with most virtualization solutions. High consistency data ratio.,Training may not be widely available. It could be more user-friendly in certain configuration screens. The promised response time could be improved.,8,When needed, the restore times have been greatly reduced. The backup processes are faster. Reliability on the tool it's a key factor so users can focus on other tasks.,When you encounter yourself on a scenario when the restore is the only possible solution, you expect a fast, transparent, and successful restore from your backup solution. This is the case we lived last year in one of our production environments, and thanks to the solution we could perform an overnight restore being completely transparent to the end users.,We have successfully used the on demand sandbox testing environment for Veeam Backup and Replication with VMWare vSphere. This is a separate environment where you can start one or more Virtual machines. We mainly use it for testing of new versions, patches and upgrades, installation of new software and troubleshoot problem with virtual machines when something happen.,Veritas Backup Exec and CommVault,Sana Commerce,5,5,Virtual servers Backups.

As the time has gone by, and even though other softwares can certainly be very well ratedas well, we are pretty sure we made the right choice by selecting Veeam Backup & Replication as our main solution for this kind of processes,Implemented in-house,No,Change management was minimal,The learning curve was not very difficult. The use of the sandbox of VMWare vSphere was a little challenging. Pricey support when needed.,9,Self-taught,When implementing the Veeam Backup & Replication solution, initially we try to perform the implementation with our internal IT consultants only, but when we advance in the process we realize we need a little guidance, so I would recommend to get some help from your partner at the beginning of the implementation, so the rest of the process could be completed in an easier way.,8,With any virtual machines that hosts Microsoft, remember to include all the dependencies when replicating virtual machines using Tintri ReplicateVM feature. This will ensure that the virtual machines that have Microsoft applications can be powered on and brought online successfully at the DR site, this will be very helpful later.,No - we have not done any customization to the interface,No - we have not done any custom code,No, we have not performed any customization.,No,When we were implementing the Veeam Backup & Replication solution, we perform most of the implementation with our in-house team, but then we ran into a few questions that we do not know how to answer, so we requested some help from Veeam software support and it was very helpful for finishing the implementation without any extra troubles.,9,Virtual server backups. good workflows. easy to use,Missing rename function for backup proxy.

Veeam is being used by the whole organization to backup our corporate servers. It addressed a lack of a backup strategy that we needed to be implemented and Veeam was the right solution for us.,Backup jobs that intergartes well with our VMware environment Easy and quick restore process for OS files or VM files Reporting and alerts as its gives information that we used to troubleshoot issues,A bug in the software that doens't delete restore points after certain amount of time Mobile Management for Veeam. It would be nice to manage Veeam on a phone to troubelshoot issues.,10,We have had scenarios where we had VMs fail and we had to use Veeam to restore or use the instant VM recovery to restore access and reduce downtime.,We have not used this feature yet but we are planning on doing so later in the future.,We have not fully used those features as of yet but it's in the plan later on.,,VMware ESXi, Zerto, Nutanix, Microsoft Office 365, Jamf Pro,5,1,Disaster Recovery. We need a backup/restore service that will backup our corprate servers and restore data when needed.

Setting up a secondary backup job especially over the WAN is cumbersome to setup.,No,10Gus AwadVeeam backup & replication is a necessity if you run VMs2019-07-29T17:54:22.445ZWe currently use Veeam to back up our entire enterprise and replicate the data to our colo site. This allows to maintain data integrity and be prepared in case of a disaster. Continuity is an incredibly important business need for us, and Veeam allows us to get back up and running quickly, in addition to the occasional recovery of accidentally deleted files.,Backups: I'm sure this doesn't need to be said, but Veeam does do backups extremely well, especially in a VMWare environment. It's fast, reliable, and easy. Recovery: Having backups with no way to recover is rather pointless, so it's a good thing that Veeam has that functionality. There are a lot of options, from file-level recover (including e-mails) to entire VM restores. Replication: Veeam B&R also allows for easy replication of data to multiple locations. Reporting and Alerts: Veeam also has great reporting functionality, as well as alerts. I get emails every morning on all my backup jobs, and immediately if they fail.,Retention and clean up: Backups can be configured to merge and clean data for retention. This usually works fine, but we do occasionally run into issues where Veeam doesn't delete old data. Thanks to alerting, I know when this is the case before the datasets get too large, but it would be nice if it worked all the time. Agents: For servers that aren't VMs, there is an agent that gets installed. It works fine, but in order to manage the backups and schedules for these servers, you have to log on to the server directly instead of using the main console application. Options: In most cases, more options are better, but I find that a lot of the time, there are just too many, especially when it comes to how to manage data retention.,10,Licensing is per socket, so the overall impact to the budget has been pretty small compared to how many servers we run in our virtual environment. Recovery is pretty quick, and easy, so it doesn't require a lot of man-hours or downtime. Fortunately, I can't speak to the impact of a total outage and recovery, but my sense is that Veeam would do this pretty fast too, since it does single VMs pretty quickly.,We do not do anything cloud-related so I cannot speak to this specifically. If it does this as well as it does localized backup and replication, I'm sure it's great.,Our organization does not fall under any specific compliance guidelines, and we have not done any sandbox testing at this time. We do, however, verify our backup data for recoverability with full recovery tests each month on multiple servers. Additionally, we had an issue with replication (not related to Veeam) a few months ago and were able to use the data copy feature to migrate the backups to a new repository.,Datto,Ubiquiti Networks UniFi, Eset Endpoint Antivirus, Datto,4,1,Disaster Recovery: Veeam is designed to get a business up and running quickly in case of disaster. This is extremely important for us. File Level Backups: We occasionally have users accidentally delete a file or e-mail, and it's very quick and easy to recover with Veeam. This helps us with customer service. Replication: We replicate data to our colo facility, largely for DR but also for redundancy.,VMWare allows snapshots, but sometimes that's not sufficient. We've used Veeam to roll back changes - sometimes because we forget to use snapshots, and sometimes because the changes were unplanned,Cloning VMs for a test environment Supporting server OS upgrades,10,No,Price Product Features Product Usability Product Reputation Analyst Reports Third-party Reviews,I don't believe we would change it. We use the same process we use for everything, demos, third party reviews, cost-benefit analysis, and vendor or partner recommendations. We also rely on the experience of our team and other products they've used. It's a whole approach, and as I write this it seems complicated on paper, but it's mostly time consuming - and fruitful in the end.,Implemented in-house,No,Change management was minimal,Engineering backups: We had to figure out the schedule and size and how to break down the backup schedule so it didn't overwhelm the network Data size: We also had to figure out how many data points to keep so we didn't fill up the storage,9,Yes,No,We've had very few issues with Veeam, but we did have an issue where our licenses were out of sync. Basically, we bought licensing for our old 2-server setup, then expanded to 3 servers, and bought additional licensing. We had to merge the license files. This merge can be done in the user support portal, but we didn't know that. So when we talked to support, the agent walked us through it without any attitude or problems.,10,Initial setup: very easy to get things connected and running Scheduling backups: intuitive, for the most part Restoring data: There's a wizard or a manual process, and it's very simple to use,Data management: sometimes it can be hard to remove old backups that may not have cleared up, as you have to go to two different places Renaming backups: Minor, perhaps, but I renamed and rearranged backups, but the data folders retain their old names,No,9Robert PaulVeeam Backup & Replication: a very solid and efficient backup solution2019-07-29T21:58:35.987ZWe use Veeam Backup & Replication to back up the Virtual Machines in our environment. We also use it to replicate the servers to our secondary site just in case our primary site goes down. We can also use it to copy our backups to an offsite location to a third site for redundancy.,Easily integrates with vCenter and vSphere in our environment. If a replication job fails, I can just rerun the job after I dig into what caused the issue. Able to keep multiple replication points just incase of a virus or ransomware attack.,It is Windows-based and is vulnerable to ransomware that can find your backups and target them.,9,We have been able to recover from instances of updates causing issues on applications in a short time. You can use the recovery option to fix only changed blocks. This saves time from having to restore a whole backup when you have application issues.,We have so many locations that we do not use the cloud currently but we have looked into possibly using in the future.,We are able to use Veamm Backup & Replication to copy our backups to an offsite location for DR. We are able to restore servers in a sandbox environment quickly to test and update, then tear down the test servers without pain or issues. We frequently test our backups to make sure they are able to be restored.,Unitrends Recovery Series Backup Appliance,Unitrends Recovery Series Backup Appliance,2,2,Maintain Backups for all our servers Replication of all our servers to our secondary site Backup copies to off site location,Backup copies to offsite location was not expected when we purchased product,We may look into getting Veeam One to add reporting of our environment,8,No,Price Product Features Product Usability Product Reputation Vendor Reputation,I think I would review more solutions but I still think we made the right choice in going with Veeam.,Implemented in-house,No,Change management was minimal,There were no issues when implementing Veeam Backup & Replication,8,No,No,To be honest, I do not remember the last time I contacted support on an issue with my backups.

It was much better than our previous solution because of how it handled change data on the virtual servers. It made recovery go from 2 to 5 hours recovering from tape with the old solution, to 10 to 15 minutes with Veeam ONE. I highly urge companies using Hyper-V to use this to backup up their infrastructure.,Backups were completed quickly daily and weekly. Recovery of files or entire machines was very quick. The user interface was very intuitive and easy to configure and maintain.,When we used it the only weakness was not having the ability to backup to tape for long term storage.,10,We were better able to help out employees with Veeam ONE because of the quick recovery times.,Symantec Backup Exec,Yes,Price Product Features Product Usability,10,NoAlec Larson

Even though the price of the support for Veeam Backup & Replication could be a little expensive, you really get what you are paying for. The support team is really well trained and mostly they will get to the root of the issue really fast and will always try their best to resolve your issue ASAP.

Veeam has a pretty decent knowledgebase with articles relevant to all sorts of possible issues (I'v eonly had a few). There's also a forum with searchable answers. Beyond that, submitting a ticket or calling support is easy and they're prompt. We had a licensing issue once and they helped us resolve it within a few hours, even though it wasn't strictly critical.
