Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

It uses Veeam B&R for backup of all virtual servers. After the nightly backups are made I use a Veeam copy job to send them to our DR site. If we ever have an issue with a VM we would use Veem B&R to restore it back to its original config. The best part about it is the instant recovery feature which saves time in restoring a VM. What it does is mount the VM to Vcenter via the backup itself, when ready you can do a live migration that doesn't impact the end-user.
  • backup
  • replication
  • recovery
  • Newest version seems buggy, it works but I get more retrys then normal on jobs.
  • Surebackup could be improved.
  • New version seems to give lots of warnings about snapshot removal also.
  • It is expensive but worth every penny
I have had much trouble from the surebackup part of the software
Well suited for backing up anything you need, even bare metal. You get what you pay for with this software. WAN accelerator is a good option I would like to try out at some point to speed up backup copy jobs to our DR site. Not much that I would say about the rest.
