Veeam Backup & Replication

Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

We use Veeam to backup all network files and servers to a local storage device. Then, we use Veeam Backup Copy to send images to a cloud based Data Center for offsite storage. This provides multiple levels of protection for our data.
  • 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
  • Application-centric recovery using Veeam Explorers (for Exchange, SQL, Sharepoint, etc)
  • Application-centric recovery using Veeam Explorers (for Exchange, SQL, Sharepoint, etc)
  • Easy to set up.
  • Intuitive interface.
  • Alert notification is clear and concise. Easy to get to the root of a problem.
  • Support is great! Quick response, knowledgeable techs, take ownership of an issue.
  • Perhaps some examples of how to set up Veeam given a certain scenario (some of the more common solutions).
  • Something to let a new user know that when you click "Next" on the restore selections, there will be a 'pause', and that it is not restoring the entire volume while you are waiting for the file selection window to load.
We currently back up two physical hosts and eight virtual servers. This is the expected number of workloads we anticipated. We know we can just add more licenses to allow Veeam to grow with us.
  • Veeam was the most cost effective solution we were offered.
  • Our MSP recommended Veeam as they had many clients using it with positive results.
  • With solid backups and offsite storage, we are doing a better job protecting our data than with our previous solution. The 'cost avoidance' for protection and recovery from a Ransomware attack is the best ROI.
Our previous backup solution saved our data to an external USB device that was swapped out once a week. The unit not connected was not stored in a safe offsite location. The process was slow, manual, and prone to human errors.
With Veeam, our backups are automated to local storage and then copied to the cloud. We don't have to worry about manual intervention. The data is easily restored. A copy is in the cloud in case of a local disaster.
I sleep better at night.
We store a copy of our backups to the cloud.
We need to review our cloud apps to see if Veeam for AWS will provide a suitable backup solution for our cloud based data.
Veeam stores our backed up data locally to a Synology NAS.
For small to medium companies like ours, Veeam is a good mix of capabilities without being over complicated.
