Veeam Backup & Replication

Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

Veeam Backup & Replication is being used by our organization as a way to keep our VMs, physical, and cloud servers safe and sound. It solves many problems including back or failed backups, slow backups, and tough restore resting. All that is no longer a problem for us and backups are running smoothly.
  • Virtualized workloads
  • Endpoints and physical servers running Windows & Linux
  • In addition to back up, we also replicate some of these workloads
  • In addition to back up, we also snapshot 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
  • Application-centric recovery using Veeam Explorers (for Exchange, SQL, Sharepoint, etc)
  • Automating test restores to validate recoverability
  • Amazing automated testing of backups
  • Fast VM restores
  • Easier to use than competing products
  • A bit costlier than expected
  • Support case response time
  • More regular feature updates
Pretty much all of our workloads are being protected by Veeam Backup & Replication. We originally planned to test it on a couple systems but that grew fast and now it's all on there. We have it as part of a new server setup step to go add it to Veeam.
  • Lots of saved time and effort on backup
  • Lots of time saved in automated restore testing
  • Easier to learn and use for new staff
Mostly looking for something that can out-perform our existing product and do it in record time. We did upgrade our storage to SSDs so that is going to be faster, but even when writing to older spinning disks we get great performance. Also, we needed more options in our backups like cloud features.
The cloud options available for Veeam are pretty extensive. You can easily configure all your backup types to use public cloud services for backup, restore, and replication. It makes it an easy place to have your DR set up and ready to go. Also gives you peace of mind that you can get your system up and running at a moment's notice.
The NAS functions are just like the rest of the system, quick and easy. Delegating file-level restores to your help desk staff can save the network team time and effort when a user has a request. We have benefited greatly since moving most of our file shares over to the Veeam tool.
Would easily recommend Veeam to coworkers and colleagues. The backup industry has a lot of options right now, and they're all trying to grab your attention so it's easy to get lost in the huge variety. But if you need a super solid, fast, and easy backup and restore system, this is it.
