Veeam Backup & Replication

Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

Currently using [Veeam Backup & Replication] to backup VMware VM's in multiple environments. Looking to start using it to backup AWS workload as well as M365 mailboxes and Teams channels/chats. I've used this in several scenarios to restore VM's that were reconfigured incorrectly that caused bootup issues as well as to retrieve files directly from Veeam backups. Works as advertised and the interface is very intuitive and easy to use.
  • 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
  • None of the above
  • None of the above
  • Restoring VM's quickly
  • Restoring files directly from backups
  • Restoring files from Linux VM's could be worked on
Currently protecting our entire on premise environment of 22 Windows and Linux VM's. We're utilizing the copy feature that then makes a second copy of the backups to another SAN that then replicates that to AWS via AWS Storage Gateway. When using the GFS backup model, we have nearly 2 years worth of data backed up.
  • This software just works, rarely have any issues with it
  • Support is excellent when/if needed
When we virtualized on our premise servers more than 5 years ago, we also purchase [Veeam Backup & Replication] along with the VMware ESXi hosts. Compared to simply imaging a server to a hard drive and not really having a sure fire way of testing the validity of the image, [Veeam Backup & Replication] was light years more capable and user friendly.
Easy to use for backing up and restoring VMware VM's. Currently this is all I'm using it for and we are exploring using it to backup M365 mailboxes and Teams channels/chats. We have not yet explored backup and restoration to/from AWS, but that is also something on the horizon. The capabilities of the software in that regard meet and exceed our needs for present and future.
