Veeam Backup & Replication

Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

We use Veeam Backup & Replication across our organization in Canada. We have also been made aware that Veeam Backup & Replication is being used across other organizations within the Liebherr group.

Veeam Backup & Replication allows us to back up all our branch infrastructure and replicate these to a central location in order to archive all data in one location.
  • Virtualized workloads
  • Endpoints and physical servers running Windows & Linux
  • In addition to back up, we also replicate some of these workloads
  • Application-centric recovery using Veeam Explorers (for Exchange, SQL, Sharepoint, etc)
  • “Instant” recovery or portability between platforms (physical > virtual > cloud-hosted)

Pros

  • Fast and easy configuration
  • Decreased our backup window by approximately 30 hours
  • Easy management and administration
  • Clear monitoring of backup jobs
  • Integration with tape backup and tape rotations

Cons

  • Summarizing multiple job reports into a single report for nightly distribution
We currently protect all our server infrastructure with Veeam Backup & Replication. This was planned and was a requirement for our purchase.
  • Fast response to removal of files or application components/objects
  • Quicker backup times
Due to other improvement projects in our environment, we decided to re-evaluate our backup solution which led us to Veeam Backup & Replication. Our experience with our backup solution has improved tremendously since we have implemented Veeam Backup & Replication.
We are still in process of researching these capabilities.
Scenarios where Veeam Backup & Replication has helped us:
  • Restoration of AD computer object after accidental deletion
  • Quick restoration of important and time-sensitive data
