I was not here before we moved to Veeam Backup & Replication so I cannot really comment. We changed from the per socket pricing to the current platform mainly for future proofing our infrastructure. As more SAAS suppliers move from server based operation to cloud, we will require less servers so the per server licensing will work out better for us.

The prior backup solution was not able to keep up with our infrastructure. So we did not have confidence in our backups. Users were concerned about the possibility of losing data. Often the backup repositories had issues with data corruption. This would result in needing to do a new full backup. The old system just took too much time to maintain.

The triggering action for us was due to aging hardware and a new network structure that required us to move to a VMware solution with multiple VMs per site. This will continue until all workloads are moved to Azure. We have continued to renew Veeam Data Platform ever since and it will continue to be our primary solution in APAC.

I dont have use other enterprise solution for backup and recovery.
But the backup was made manually, copying the data from the server to the external hard drive. For other server was used the windows backup feature is not very easy to use or powerfull. In the market Veeam was the best solutions in all aspect.

We used Symantec Backup Exec which was very out of date and tape driven. Veeam was an excellent replacement and we could actually backup EVERTHING instead of just a select few critical VMs. We also needed something could easily move to a remote space and out of our main network area.

Several years ago, when we switched from separate baremetal servers to hosting multiple VMs on a single physical machines, Veeam became the best choice for backup in that situation over the software we were using before. This is also when we added multiple backup points to create redundancy for security purposes.

We used to use a couple of other solutions prior to veeam, these were direct to server or tape backups, they were clunky, slow and difficult to manage and took a lot of time to manage Under Veeam the process is automated, the feature set has improved significantly over each version without additional costs Experience before and after is night and day, Veeam has made backups managable and controllable

The IT department saw a couple of YouTube guides that explained the ease of all workloads we are using within the company. To test the application we set up a server and some clients and simulated disaster scenarios as HDD failure and swapping from different hardware configurations. Restoring the backups to a VM was a very easy process and that certainly impacted the move towards the product.

The trigger was your sales outreach. The previous solution was not nearly as reliable, it was costly, and did not provide literally total piece of mind. Now, we are saving money with a reliable solution that affords me a great peace of mind.

Before VEEAM we had multiple different backups backing up Linux and Windows servers or the clients, which were not centrally managed. This had to beunified to lower the administrative power needed. As I had worked with VEEAM before and I performed well. I chose it again. The installation of VEEAM is easily done. Also migrating to a different server is easily done. Just install on the new server, migrate the configuration using a GUI and import this file on the new server.

Our previous backup appliance had a HUGE learning curve, a fair bit of manual processing, and was very expensive to maintain. The old appliance/software was so bad that we eventually stopped using it completely. We swapped to Veeam Data Platform to replace it for ease of use, more automatic processing and a more economical option.

We were bare metal until around 2013, backups and restoes to servers/services were painful and slow. We tried other virtualization backup software and weren't really happy. We made the swap to Veeam due to a suggestion from a friendly customer and haven't looked back since. Veeam has been able to meet and exceed all our backup expectations/needs.

We implemented Veeam Data Platform when moving to a new hyperconverged virtualization platform as the cost could be rolled in to the whole project budget. One main difference up front was the cost as our previous backup solution was free, open-source software. However, there was significant value to be had with ease of operation and the ability to do immutable backups that made the cost worth it.

Veeam was included in our initial server package for the last server we purchased. We purchased a new license along with a server upgrade we did recently, as the old version wasn't compatible with Hyper-V.

The community edition is a good start to begin and see what veeam can do for you.

The save system is the same that others backup software (except the worload system...) so it is more the user interface witch will give you problem than fonctionality. You need to learn a little to find what you want.

The huge documentation is here to help you!
