We were using IBM Notes on the Cloud. We used Veeam on IBM Cloud to back up the databases. All of our in-house servers are virtual using VMWare. We use it to create replicas of all the servers. When we moved our IBM Notes to the cloud, we changed our backup on the Mail Databases to the Veeam on IBM Cloud for cloud backups. We were able to open the Veeam on IBM Cloud and choose any mailbox to restore or even view online.
  • Very easy to backup images.
  • Very easy to restore.
  • Did not interfere with bandwidth.
  • Nothing at this time. The interfaces are very detailed.
Creating virtual images of the servers. Veeam on IBM Cloud allows you to create replicas of all the databases. Full, and incremental. The interface is adaptable and very easy to use.

[The] whole organization is using it to securely upload data on the cloud. One of the major business problems resolved was the data [recovery] ability whenever required. Beyond all the technological innovation, the key differentiator in working with IBM is its expertise in business processes. For decades, IBM has been proving to its customers that its strength is to supply consulting, management, and delivery frameworks to scale, no matter how great that scale is. The IBM/Veeam partnership is really only bearing fruit because of the substantial investments that IBM has made in its global-scale public cloud infrastructure. While it is important to have a technology partner that does backup and recovery right, it’s just as important to have a high-security destination for those critical business data and application backups.

We have this solution implemented for a particular department that is open to having their data cloud-enabled. The department does not have a unique source to fund Capex expenditures so the IBM Cloud was a much friendlier solution. The underlying cloud management saves them on operation costs and allows them to use their funding in a flexible fashion.
  • IBM support is great
  • Cloud solves our cost issues
  • Flexible options
  • Still could add some more features
  • IBM cloud can change maybe too rapidly
  • Application extensions
When you want to expand your IT function to cloud functionality, IBM Cloud provides the tools needed with their partnership with Veeam to make it happen. If your data needs to stay on-premise for security purposes, obviously a cloud solution will receive a lot of scrutiny as an alternative. If you can overcome those hurdles, Veeam on IBM Cloud is a good choice.

I have setup multiple clients with Veeam on IBM Cloud to backup their Servers/Databases to the Cloud. I also have installed other Veeam products that work in conjunction with/assist Veeam on IBM Cloud. All of Veeam's products work cohesively with each other and cause no appreciable slow downs on related system resources.
  • Backups up all Server Database structures completely
  • Backups up all Server Databases while those databases are still in use
  • Does not have any appreciable effect on Server system resources
  • I would like to see a slightly more improved user interface
  • A more thorough off-line Help section would be beneficial
I would highly recommend Veeam on IBM Cloud to any client/business that needs Cloud backup technology for their Server Databases. It is not as thorough as other Veeam products for backing up Windows Workstations.

This product is primarily being used as a backup and recovery solution for data--data in an on-premises data center is backed up in the cloud and this is where we use Veeam on IBM Cloud. It is used across the organization and helps have a data backup in the event we need to restore it. Data recovery is something we do once a quarter just to be sure that the solution works well and we are also following the exact steps required in the event of a real contingency. At every data recovery activity, there was zero data loss since we had clearly marked the data recovery point that we were going for.
  • Helps data recovery especially in recovery point objective without data loss
  • Easy to use interface
  • Minimal learning curve to use the product
  • Dashboard showing success/failure of backup can be made straightforward with either green for success or red for failure
Veeam on IBM Cloud is very well suited for doing data backup from the storage environment in the data center. It does this job well with an easy and straightforward user interface. There is minimal learning curve to get started. We wanted to use the cloud for backup instead of expanding storage in the data center and hence went with this solution. We do data recovery on a regular basis and have been able to retrieve data from Veeam backup in a very straightforward manner meeting the recovery time and recovery point objectives.

Veeam on IBM Cloud has been our choice for a backup solution. As an IT department, we have the responsibility for data management including backups. We have had many different backup solutions before but Veeam is the one now, which fulfils all our needs. Before we had to follow up on the process every day, but now it works smoothly almost every time. Also we have had many recovery tests and it always works great.
  • File restoration process is easy and effective
  • It's fast
  • We can meet our RPO/RTO targets
  • Costs
If you have an environment that has to be working 24/7 it's mandatory to have a perfect backup solution to be able to recover quickly as well as not to lose any data and Veeam provides such capabilities on the cloud.

Veeam is used by the organization for backups of virtual and physical servers. It addresses the problems of backing up many servers.
  • Continuity to instantly recover any app, any data, on any cloud.
  • Veeam helps you avoid data loss by enabling low recovery point objectives (RPO) of
  • The dashboard on viewing backups and count/failures needs to be better.
  • It needs an easy way to delete backups from the target device.
Veeam actually works. Under our full load, Veeam just works and works well with few errors.

Veeam on IBM Cloud has completely displaced all other backups. Working in the IT department, we have to respond to a crisis quickly with minimal data loss. Before Veeam, we had to choose either speed or up-to-date data, but now, we make no sacrifices in our data backups and can completely restore in minutes.
  • File-level restores are incomparably quick
  • Complete file server restores in minutes vs. hours - perfect for a critical situation
  • Images for application upgrades
  • Continuous data protection would be awesome. Would love to displace Zerto.
  • It took 2 years for us to be fully convinced (we are now) but we wish we could have been sooner.
We have no need for old backup software. We spent a long time weighing our options and figuring out which solution is the best by using them. In the end, it came down to speed, and what a speedy recovery did for the confidence of our customers.

However, if your team does not value speed of their recovery, or they need continuous backups, Veeam may not be necessary.

We use Veeam on IBM Cloud primarily for backup and recovery. I work in the information technology department and we wanted a solution that could back up everything in our department. We have a lot of different types of data so this all-inclusive solution was perfect for our team.
  • It is incredibly fast
  • Veeam is the most reliable software we have used
  • It is far more accurate and precise than competitors
  • It just works
It is great - our whole team loves to use the platform because it is simple and extremely fast. We have taken the last 2 years to get comfortable with it, and because it has been so great, we decided to eliminate all other backup software we were using. This was a huge confidence boost for the entire team. Also, if you need a high-speed backup, Veeam takes just minutes for an entire file server restore compared to hours or days like before.

[It's used to] Help us offload backups into the cloud rather than buying new storage. We do not have to keep buying storage from other providers. Before, we continuously had to expand the storage that we had to keep up for new hires, old employees, and other corporate data. Things like emails really add up over time and can never really be deleted, so we wanted a better way to back up our data that was safe and efficient.
  • Easy to use and install.
  • Syncs with Veeam
  • Cost of storage in the could
We store exchange backup forever. Veeam is helping put all of our data in the cloud (rather than a disk) where it is accessible and can live forever.

However, depending on cost, sometimes it's cheaper to use local storage if you have the manpower to manually complete the work.

Having the ability to brand the client is nice and it was easy to do. The program installation is straight forward and uncomplicated. Once running it does not put a drain on system resources. After the initial backup subsequent backups are quick. We are able to provide a robust and reliable backup solution to our clients. For the times that our clients have needed data restored, it has worked quickly and reliably.
  • The program installation is straight forward and uncomplicated.
  • Once running it does not put a drain on system resources. After the initial backup subsequent backups are quick.
  • It does what it is deigned to do and they have kept it simple for a reason.
  • The reporting could use some work. If you have a client who has some serious audit controls in place, you may find yourself creating the report versus depending on the system do that piece for you.
  • My complaint would be with the notification emails. They are not configurable and come out regardless of whether a backup set completed or is still running.
  • The scheduling is a little clunky. It would be much nicer if the backup could be "continuous" anytime it's connected to the Internet (similar to Carbonite).
It is an excellent mid-range backup solution. Beneficial for small to medium businesses. Capable and very versatile. Local and offsite backups are a breeze - just make sure you have ample bandwidth for larger sets (1 TB or more).
