We use Veeam Data Platform for Microsoft Windows as our backup solution for our Windows servers. It is extremely stress free to setup and we check the control panel every other day to determine how long backups are taking, if backups are successful, and if there is a new version of the software. Our previous backup solution was extremely buggy and we could not depend on it.

We use Veeam Data Platform for our server backups. Both whole OS backups and file server file system backups. We had been using Microsoft's DPM but it kept giving us issues so we switched even though DPM was included in our System Center subscription.

We use Veeam Data Platform Backup and Replication for server backups and replicas. We have nightly backups and archiving setup for each server. We also have some archives being sent to an off-site NAS. We also use the Veeam ONE Monitor software to keep track of each of our server's resources. We get alerted for any errors and warnings via email. All of the software is integrated via VMware Vsphere.

We use it to back up servers at regular intervals and for on demand backups before performing upgrades to roll back from in the event of failure. We regularly test our backups and have had the "opportunity" to restore from backups numerous times and never had any failed recoveries. We've also run servers directly from their backup images and transitioned them, live, back to production.

We utilize Veeam Backup and Replication version 12 in our organization. We also use Veeam Azure Backup and Recovery. We backup our on premises servers to an onsite storage appliance and Azure cloud. We backup our Azure servers to the Azure cloud. We are planning on purchasing Veeam O365 backup soon.

We use it to back up all of our VMWare Virtual Machines to 3 separate backup repository. This allows up to restore files that have accidentally been deleted. The main business problems the product addresses, though, is disaster recovery and ransomware protection. We have also used Veeam Data Platform to migrate VMs from 1 set of VMWare hosts to another.

We use Veeam Data Platform to store and secure data on our servers. It enables us to run multiple data sets over time, with consistency checks and hot restore tests.We use it across our entire infrastructure, covering all our servers, including test servers, worldwide. A new ransomware verification module has been deployed, making it even more secure.We also use the cloud mailbox backup module.

We use it for backup and backup copy for a Hyper-V environnement.
The free lifetime version is a great opportunity to test it for company with low I.T. budget.
The backup copy functionality is very useful.
The backup explorer is easy to use to restore quickly a simple file.

Veeam Backup & Replication allows us to backup our data in a secure & logical way, giving us peace of mind that should any files get accidentally deleted, or if there is an issue with a virtual machine, we have the means to restore to when it was last working correctly.

We also link in our backups with Veeam Cloud Connect, for secure, off-site backup, as part of our backup procedure.

Newest Version is amazing, cut the time to do our backups in half. we are now confidant in our backups and rarely have to do any checks aside from our quarterly restore. Overall Veeam is a great Solution for almost any company and i would highly recommend it to anyone in the IT field.

I use Veeam to protect my company's Servers and Workstations. I make a daily backup of everything and am able to recover lost data thanks to the incremental copy. I also make a copy of my 365 email with the Veeam utility for Microsoft 365. With some client equipment I have had to recover the entire system image on a new hard drive and everything without problem.

We use Veeam Backup and Recovery mainly for server-level and file-level data protection. Being able to simply mount a backup image in order to recover a file or validate that operating system level backups are working as intended is monumentally important and gives us back valuable time that lesser backup solutions cannot. Veeam also makes it insanely easy to keep copies of backup data offsite at our other locations and the in the cloud with integrated, automated jobs that do all the work for us. I also love the fact that we can backup on one platform and restore to another (like HyperV to VMWare). We plan on using that feature in the future for a migration. Veeam support is top notch as well. Any support tickets I have get addressed by support techs that know the product inside and out.

We are backing up our whole virtual infrastructure around the world. With Veeam we can use several other devices to save our backups, like tape or external ransomware-proofed storage devices. Even saving backup in the cloud via "Veeam Cloud Connector" is possible and not bad. You can just create real backup jobs to certain devices and then copy the backup over to another media without touching your live infrastructure again.

We use Veeam Data Platform to backup our entire VM environment. We have several Windows servers, and several Linux servers that are essential to keeping our business operating and our customers happy. We have several users who use Veeam Data Platform, all with different levels of experience. The restoration process is simple and easy to figure out.

Currently I utilize Veeam Data Platform as a redundant backup system for all physical servers in our environment, and am in the process of shifting our VMWare environment over to it as well. In total, it'll end up handling around 125 servers.

Primarily I'm leveraging it to fill the gaps in our backup systems; previously there was another platform in place, but it was long since defunct by the time I was hired, plus our current VM backup system is going away at the start of the next year.

Ultimately, once the VMs are transitioned, I want to use the redundant server to round out our DR setup.

We currently use Veeam Data Platform for full VM backups. Our last product was a file level recovery product with no means of recovering a VM or server without installing an OS first. Veeam Data Platform has resolved that issue exceedingly well. We can recover full VMs within only a few minutes. We were also tasked with encrypting our backups, which was an easy task for Veeam Data Platform. We currently have another product for replicating VMs to an offsite datacenter, and plan to start testing the CDP and Replication parts of Veeam Data Platform to see if they can compete with our other product soon. Small test suggest that Veeam Data Platform does an excellent job with CDP and Replication, but maybe not quite as organized as our current product.

We can do several things with Veeam Data Platform, from daily cloud full, incremental or differential backups, to an instant recovery of full systems. This product is reliable in case of disaster and has a broad protection to automate across virtual enviroment, cloud, physical and NAS. You can scale it with ease and build your disaster recovery plan and testing.

We utilize Veeam to create nightly backups of all of our server infrastructure as part of our layered approach to backing up our data. First we utilize a different product to create real time replication between our datacenters. Then we utilize Veeam to create nighttime full/incremental backups and copy them down to a local storage device in an immutable state. From there Veeam allows us to replicate those backups up to another storage device in the office where the IT staff are based out of so we can copy those files to offline disks. We then rotate those offline disks in order to airgap them and store them in safes offsite. Veeam is an essential component in our data backup strategy because it allows us to create immutable backups locally and then airgap our offline backups so that no matter what type of incident happens we have a way to fully recover our data and server infrastructure and getting running again as quickly as possible.

We use Veeam Backup and Replication to backup our VMware environment. We had long backup windows with our old backup software and need a solution that narrowed that windows. Veeam delivered on that. Our backup times have drastically shortened and restoring a VM is almost instant. I am very happy with this backup software and really don't have any complaints.

Veeam Backup & Recovery makes it easy for us to do both onsite and offsite backups of our VM infrastructure. As an added bonus, Veeam makes it easy to cover the ransomware angle through its support for immutable backups. Veeam is highly flexible and reliable. I would easily recommend it to any company that wants backups that they can rely on.

We use it to primarily handle backups and VM cloning for our vmware infrastructure and certain core physical servers. Our scope is approximately 75 to 150 VMs overall and this is expected to increase shortly. One other use case for our veeam internally is to replicate or migrate VMs across different regions where this would have previously not been possible.
