  • Instant recovery option
  • Quickly add and remove VMs
  • Connects to failover infrastructure
  • It doesn't handle running more than 4 tasks at once
  • It is a slow application to use and log into
  • When removing a portable hard drive used for a restore the terminology is a bit confusing

  • Large volume backups.
  • VM backups.
  • Repository data compression.
  • Repository management, allow administrators to rank the repository order to use.
  • Repository management, based on prior backup jobs or a scan, reserves space on a repository. That way the space is low and another job starts, it will not cause the other job to run out of space.
  • Licensing, seems like some of our VM are counted twice.

  • Backup multiple platforms.
  • Allow for backup to multiple types of targets.
  • Replicate virtual machines from one location to another or into the cloud.
  • It should recommend the most secure method of backup methods to ensure immutability.
  • It should maximize SnapMirror technology when using a NetApp as a backup target to replicate backups to CVO targets.
  • It should provide a centralized dashboard for backing up all PaaS services in Azure.

  • Virtual Machine restores. Whether a full over-write, being moved to a new location, or a live restore, it's quick and easy.
  • Ease of browsing for individual files that may need to be restored due to a minor mistake.
  • Very easy to test restores to make sure everything is still working.
  • The UI isn't terrible, but it could definitely be better.
  • The initial opening of the software takes several minutes, and could potentially be optimized for faster loading.
  • In-program tutorials to help walk new people through processes that can get complicated.

  • Elastic recovery to recover only what is needed whether it's a single file or a full system/servers
  • Allow for immutable storage
  • Integration with virtual platforms and some SAN providers directly
  • Allow for a Backup and Replication to occur in one job
  • Allow for further flexibility with data retention such as allowing some servers in a job different retention than others or changing in retention over time. Example is backup daily for 7 days, then store a weekly backup for 8 weeks, monthly backup for 13 months, etc. all within the job.
  • More communication about platform updates. Many new features come out and we are not aware until a little further down the road.

  • Backs up VMs
  • Moves backed up VMs from NAS to cloud backup partner
  • Monitoring / reporting of successes and failures of all actions
  • Sometimes the error messages are a bit ambiguous requiring tech support to clarify.
  • Not every scheduled backup works 100%. That said, I let it roll as the following one typically will.

  • Create a test environment out of a production environment easily on demand.
  • Data compression
  • Postgres database
  • Easy migration between servers
  • Performance could be better sometimes.
  • Error logs sometimes lead to wrong directions.
  • Combination of VEEAM Agent Free and Paid to better fit the demand.

  • Integrates well with 3rd party cloud backups particularly Wasabi which is very cost effective.
  • Allows you to send secondary backups to multiple locations like other disk, cloud, etc.
  • Sends good reporting emails when there is a failure.
  • Their tech support has been much more helpful and knowledgeable than Microsoft's was for DPM.
  • It could always be cheaper.

  • Backups
  • Archives
  • Resource Monitoring
  • Notifications
  • SQL Table recovery -- you are not able to restore a single table if it is above a certain size. Restoring a whole (large) database is very cumbersome.
  • Some notifications are less important and could probably be ignored. More notification configurations would be helpful here.
  • There is a slight learning curve to the interface/UI for Backups. It is fine once you learn it but confusing at first.

  • Backups
  • Managing those backups/scheduled tasks
  • Restoring from backups
  • Running backups live from those backups
  • Software support is great; the few times we've ever needed them they've pulled through
  • A change to the interface for mounting then recovering individual files or folders feels clunky but it's the only complaint about the software. It works, the process just isn't as smooth as I'd like.
  • An inline product update from an update button rather than going to the Veeam page to download a new setup file would be pretty slick, not a deal breaker by any means though
  • It would be pretty neat to have an inline tech support data upload, provide a ticket number and have the support upload go directly to Veeam rather than taking that archive file and uploading it to the ticket via the web portal

  • Highly configurable
  • Dependable
  • Backups
  • UI update interval (like charts, copy speed update) is a bit slow.
  • Starting backups takes a while, doesn't really explain what it's doing.
  • Backups fail/warn for a lot of misc reasons, so a lot of time is spent diagnosing these (like the dreaded "Failed to index guest file system. VSSControl: Index failed").
