Veeam Backup & Replication

Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

We utilize Veeam Backup & Replication for all of our customer-focused applications in multiple locations, including two colocations in diverse locations. It has successfully allowed us to build backup and recovery redundancy in order to ensure our apps continue to run and process customer data with appropriate security.
  • Virtualized workloads
  • Endpoints and physical servers running Windows & Linux
  • NAS filers
  • In addition to back up, we also replicate some of these workloads
  • 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
  • Application-centric recovery using Veeam Explorers (for Exchange, SQL, Sharepoint, etc)
  • Immutable storage to protect against ransomware
  • “Instant” recovery or portability between platforms (physical > virtual > cloud-hosted)
  • Application-centric recovery using Veeam Explorers (for Exchange, SQL, Sharepoint, etc)
  • Windows library structures are easily identified for restoration
  • Restores, in general, are easy to do
  • Replication of data structures to other servers
  • Better method to back up desktop and laptops
  • Improvement of deduping methods
  • Better error descriptions for troubleshooting
We have approximately 26 hosts in multiple locations that are backed up nightly to an SAN and replicated to another site. Additionally, we utilize Veeam Backup & Replication to back up our entire O365 environment to a cloud service provided away from AWS. We have been adding hosts and licenses since first acquiring Veeam Backup & Replication and have not missed a click on provided a good nights sleep.
  • As an early adopter of Veeam Backup & Replication, the value provided was critical
  • Ease of use, little training, fast restoration, and malware protection is my ROI
We were using three different backup methods, unrelated, unwieldly, and costly with no replication capability. Upon arrival and assessing our business continuity and data protection we felt there was a huge black hole. Some backups when attempting to replicate elsewhere failed and created turmoil. With the Veeam Backup & Replication that has all changed. It just works!
We use Veeam Cloud Connect to back up our O365 environment, including our OneDrive and SharePoint, to iland. Prior to that, nothing. And MS AWS does NOT backup that environment for you. We have had occasion to look for information after an employee has left, and we have that data safely backed up.
Nearly all of our VM data stores are on NAS devices. Veeam Backup & Replication has enabled us to replicate that information to a backup colocation.
Veeam Backup & Replication is very well suited for file-level recovery as well as for full VM recovery when a VM snapshot is unavailable. It is a must-have tool for IT to be able to recover from a malware/ransomware attack. It now works great in backup and replication to cloud storage. As a user of many backup solutions through the years I cannot think of a better solution than Veeam Backup & Replication.
