Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

We use Veeam Backup & Replication to back up the virtual server system infrastructure of approximately 10 systems in our organization. Our priority is to back up the static data of our existing system infrastructure and constantly updated databases, and to control them automatically, ensuring that we IT employees sleep comfortably.
  • Virtualized workloads
  • Endpoints and physical servers running Windows & Linux
  • Cloud-hosted VMs within AWS or Azure
  • Automating test restores to validate recoverability
  • Automating test restores to validate recoverability
  • Veeam is very simple interface.
  • Easy and useful backup and restore management.
  • The strength is that it operates stably.
  • Useful reports and notifications.
  • I have read that you can do a better job with the 11 version on the instant copy side compared to its competitors, we look forward to it.
  • Management and dashboard side can also be improved via vCenter.
  • The price may be a little more affordable.
  • The number of languages it supports may increase.
We are currently backing up 10 VMs running on vCenter with Veeam. When we first got it, what we wanted to do was to provide short and long-term redundancy of our VM infrastructures, but we are planning to back up to the cloud system in the near future with the opportunities provided by Veeam. In addition, thanks to Veeam, which can work with IBM Tape systems, we will be able to reduce our costs by using tape for our long-term backups.
  • It has a cost-saving effect because the cloud side and tape side are more cost effective than backups resting on traditional NAS systems.
  • Thanks to the automation scenarios, it is not necessary to allocate an extra personnel to perform operations such as taking backups, controlling and reporting. This again reduces the cost.
When we switched to the vCenter virtualization structure, we realized that we needed a backup with a single application in a shorter time and more integrated, where traditional methods did not work. The nice thing here is that Veeam is an application known in the industry and we have heard of. With the Veeam engineers in our region, we were able to do a demo first and then switch easily.
We are not utilized by the cloud, but this is in our plan.
We are not using it right now, but this is the feature we want to try.
The most important process of the backup system is actually the control of the backup, which is always forgotten or lazy. So when you make a backup, you can't go back to it when needed. You must also do this on every backup. The data verification feature of Veeam Backup & Replication product eliminates this problem.
We used Zerto and CA Arcserve to address these needs without migrating to Veeam Backup & Replication. Zerto is a very successful instant backup and we are still using it now. It does what Veeam application cannot do in instant replication. CA Arcserve, on the other hand, is clearly lagging behind the Veeam Backup & Replication product and does not meet today's requirements.
I recommend Veeam Backup & Replication software to those around me who do this professionally. Because the Veeam Backup & Replication application is a proven product. Taking daily backups, automating them within themselves, providing and reporting controls can be carried out in very simple steps. If you are considering instant backup, you have to wait a little longer for this.

I regret that we really switched to Veeam Backup & Replication so late. Because it made our job much easier. We avoided a lot of workload thanks to the simple automation of everything.
