Veeam Backup & Replication

Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

I'm a long time Veeam user as they were the 1st backup company who's product just worked back in a day. Arcserve and Symantec were too buggy and too focused on backing up physical infrastructure. Veeam works flawlessly.
  • Good backup speed
  • Deduplication ratios
  • Replication to remote site or cloud for DR purposes.
  • Perhaps web-based UI that we could access from a Linux machine.
  • I'm in the education so an easy to use product is always a good investment.
As it has been said, the product is used for education only, demo environments show the students the different capabilities, etc. We do not have a production environment.
We keep showing this to our customers and teaching them different possibilities.
Yes, with SureBackup which lets you test VM backups and check if you can recover data from them. You can verify any restore point of a backed-up VM. During a SureBackup job, Veeam Backup & Replication performs “live” verification where the product scans, the backed-up data for malware, boots the VM from the backup in the isolated environment, runs tests for the VM, checks if some services are up or not, powers the VM off, and creates a report on recovery verification results.
I think that Veeam has built a product that can be used either by very small businesses or large corporations. Now with v10, you can even use Linux proxies to scale out.
