Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

We use Veeam Backup & Replication internally to easily manage the backup of our infrastructure. As service providers, we also install and use it to all of our customers, from the small company with one server and few PCs to the big multinational corporation with hundreds of VMs and workstations. Our common goal is the same: feel safe. When I receive the daily report from each backup job and I read "Success", my day starts with a smile.
  • It's easy to define and schedule backup jobs.
  • Reports are detailed.
  • No matter how many VMs you have or what they do
  • A sort of "smart wizard" for the first backup could help users in the first step.
  • I'd like to have a dashboard with only main simple information and graphs.
  • Less time spent outside the office checking backup problems
  • One single software for all clients, with common configuration and reports to my email
We currently manage the backup of more than 100 virtual and physical machines. We are planning to double this number in the next few months. Initially, we used to have multiple software solutions for different kinds of backup complexity: now we are converging towards a single solution.
Veeam Backup & Replication is perfect for medium-large companies, with a lot of VMs in the infrastructure. For very small companies maybe it's too much.
