Veeam Backup & Replication

Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

Backup is a major factor on the network side and having a solid product is very important. We had a split setup where some older and physical servers used our existing software and the newer stuff used Veeam. Well, that's a good way to do an A/B comparison and because of that, we've slowly moved everything over to Veeam because of how much better it runs.
  • Virtualized workloads
  • Endpoints and physical servers running Windows & Linux
  • In addition to back up, we also replicate some of these workloads
  • Enterprise UNIX servers running Solaris & IBM AIX
  • Enterprise applications such as Oracle or SAP HANA
  • Cloud-hosted VMs within AWS or Azure
  • NAS filers
  • Utilizing backup copies for secondary purposes via DataLabs
  • Automating test restores to validate recoverability
  • Lots of useful tools built in
  • Great interface to make things easy
  • Solid backup for worry free restores
  • Easier to put in support requests
  • Clearer cloud setup
  • HTML5 updates
Most of our works loads are being protected by Veeam. A few go to cloud, most go to local disk. Unless you're hitting up against a license count or other limiting issue, why not throw all your devices at it and have the peace of mind that everything is safely backed up!
  • IT is more confident with their backups after using Veeam.
  • Higher-ups are satisfied that we're safe in the event a restore is needed.
  • Saving time than when we were using less optimized backup solutions.
The need for change is when you're sick and tired of failed or corrupted backups. Having to give your backup option a whole extra day to get full backups is quite the tipping point. Once you dabble in Veeam you really want to move as many things onto it as you can.
Cloud DR is a nice feeling of knowing your able to bring down your most important servers at a DR or pop up site if the need arises. Using Veeam to protect cloud based servers is great and can save you the hassle of using the cloud vendors solution (and prices).
We've got a few shares setup to be protected by Veeam and just like the rest of the product it's fast and simple. Restoring tons of files because someone decided to delete everything is quick and painless. It's almost too good that users are less careful with their files as a result.
Highly recommended. Veeam is easy to use (once it's all setup) and [provides] fast backups and restores. Besides some improvement in the cloud backup options and setup, I think this is an easy recommendation to all departments needing backup solutions for their expanding list of VM's. It can do physical as well, but it's definitely designed for VMs.
