Veeam Backup & Replication

Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

Veeam Backup & Replication is being used for full and incremental backups for all infrastructure servers. It also replicates current backups to AWS weekly. It provides most of my clients with a backup and recover solution that not only provides local solutions but methods to get our backups secured offsite.
  • 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
  • Application-centric recovery using Veeam Explorers (for Exchange, SQL, Sharepoint, etc)
  • Capacity Tier to store data within object storage for longer term retention
  • License portability as your environment needs change
  • Automating test restores to validate recoverability
  • Immutable storage to protect against ransomware
  • Application-centric recovery using Veeam Explorers (for Exchange, SQL, Sharepoint, etc)
  • Ease of automation
  • 3rd party integration
  • Failure/Success reporting
  • User centric features for file restores
  • Backup database mounting speed
  • UI restructure based on current backup types
In our current environments we use Veeam Backup & Replication to protect over 100 virtual servers mixed in with a few physical devices. Veeam was our go to choice for backing up these devices so it is exactly on par for how many devices we planned on backing up in our environments.
  • Time saved for business critical restores
  • Easy updating for new features has limited downtime
  • Server backups for disaster recovery has secured new opportunities
Veeam Backup & Replication has almost always been our go to solution however previously we employed Symantec Endpoint Protection. Due to Symantec's high resource usage and more complicated setup, this drive us to a more intuitive and simpler product. THe switch made our backups easier to access, quicker to process, and simpler to restore.
We have currently not installed any cloud capabilities other than backup replication to the AWS platform.
This feature is not currently used at any of our clients.
Veeam Backup & Replication is well suited to environments that employ any kind of virtualization technology for their infrastructure, namely VCenter. The intuitive integration and quick setup makes backups easy and gives peace of mind that they are being completed in the manner that is desired. Veeam is less suited to environments specializing on MacOS or highly mobile environments.
