Veeam Backup & Replication

Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

Veeam Backup & Replication is being used by our organization to do file-level backups, mailbox backups, as well as Virtual Machine Replication for Disaster Recovery. As we are based in Florida, having a solution where we can flip a switch and have our clients' servers up and running is important.
  • Virtualized workloads
  • Endpoints and physical servers running Windows & Linux
  • Cloud-hosted VMs within AWS or Azure
  • In addition to back up, we also replicate some of these workloads
  • In addition to back up, we also snapshot some of these workloads
  • Cloud-hosted VMs within AWS or Azure
  • None of the above
  • None of the above
  • Easy to install in domain environments
  • Easy to restore files
  • Email restores is a plus.
  • Can be difficult to implement.
  • Published documentation can be difficult to understand.
Our company currently utilizes Veeam with most of our clients that purchase Workstation Backups. I believe this to be around 1000 workstations. This is about on par for what we expected when we purchased this product.
  • Replication of servers is key for where we are located.
  • Being able to restore deleted email
We changed over to Veeam as our primary backup solution mostly for the replication service. As part of our Disaster Recovery plan, we needed a way to keep our customers online as long as possible during a potential hurricane. Since its implementation, we have had to use it a couple of times and it has been reliable.
Our organization has benefited from the capabilities of disaster recovery by replicating our clients' VMs to another data center location. If/when our primary data center has lost power or connectivity, we have spun up the VMs at the secondary location and connection was down for a minimal amount of time.
Our company benefits from the NAS backup solution. The primary way is restoring folders or files that get moved or deleted by users so they can continue their work.
Veeam Backup & Replication is well suited for an environment that is mostly virtual servers. If the Replication portion is set up if your data center or office building goes down, all you have to do is flip a switch and you can spin up your servers in an alternate location.
