Veeam Backup & Replication

Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

Veeam is used for backup of essential VM. Recovery is as easy as boiling an egg. For quick recovery, we use VM copy. It allows us to start a VM to yesterday's state after a crash. Recovery of files in a VM is done with a file explorer like interface. Same for SQL recovery. Simple interface, easy to use.
  • Virtualized workloads
  • Endpoints and physical servers running Windows & Linux
  • Cloud-hosted VMs within AWS or Azure
  • Application-centric recovery using Veeam Explorers (for Exchange, SQL, Sharepoint, etc)
  • Application-centric recovery using Veeam Explorers (for Exchange, SQL, Sharepoint, etc)
  • Instant VM recovery. If on a disk, VM is restored instantly.
  • Explorer like restore makes it easier.
  • VM copy to different data stores in different locations in case of disaster.
  • VMWare GUI integration.
It is one VMware cluster divided into two locations. I have used it before so I know exactly what to expect.
  • It is not easy to qualify it. But if users have to wait for there restore, it always costs!!
  • The fact that every IT person in the department can use it makes it worth every penny.
When I started at this company they had old outdated backup software. In my former job, I used Veeam already so the choice was easy. Data security became a hot topic that year so Veeam was the logical choice.
Backup of VM is easy. I used Inc’s forever. Backup time is really quick now. I have time to do more back tasks in one night. Before Veeam, it was not possible.
