Veeam Backup & Replication

Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

Veeam Backup & Replication is being across our whole organization as the primary backup and DR solution.
It meets the needs of the business by fully managing the backup, movement, and recovery of critical infrastructure VM and data between our head office where our central server infrastructure is located, and our colocated server infrastructure in a datacentre in a nearby city.
  • Virtualized workloads
  • 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
  • Automating test restores to validate recoverability
  • Immutable storage to protect against ransomware
  • Failover or recovery scripts/plans for orchestrated recovery
  • Capacity Tier to store data within object storage for longer term retention
  • File deduplication.
  • Easy file restore that just works.
  • Clear notifications with easy to understand completion status.
  • Socket-based licensing inflexible.
  • Needs iOS management app.
  • Separate WAN accelerator cost.
Veeam Backup & Replication protects 6 physical HyperV hosts and over 50 VMs across the business. It has continued to serve the business as the number of physical hosts and VMs grew over time and all that was needed was to add additional storage as our backup requirements grew also.
  • Zero data loss since choosing Veeam Backup & Recovery.
  • Demonstrated ability to executive of functional restore.
The previous solution did not provide any confidence in the ability to restore data. Upon further investigation, it was discovered that backups were actually corrupt and could not be restored, even though backup media was being faithfully changed daily. Veeam Backup & Replication enables the ability to test the backups of both VMs and Data - allowing us to comply with the audit requirements around testing backups on a quarterly and yearly basis and demonstrating this to the executive, creating confidence in the solution and the business IT in general.
Due to specific requirements around data storage of our clients’ data, we do not use any cloud data storage currently.
We currently do not use this functionality.
The most used situations where a user requests a specific file restore from backup on a particular date can be actioned easily and quickly. The solution just works and can be relied upon to protect VMs and Data with integrated file deduplication and compression, then moving them offsite quickly.
