Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

Veeam helped me organize the company's backup and we made it faster to restore virtual machines and shared folders. We were using an old commercial solution that no longer met our needs and Veeam gave us the breath we needed to fill that gap. With the old backup tool, we couldn't put together a viable recovery plan that would suit the department's interests, and with Veeam our problems were solved.
  • Virtualized workloads
  • NAS filers
  • In addition to back up, we also snapshot some of these workloads
  • Endpoints and physical servers running Windows & Linux
  • In addition to back up, we also replicate some of these workloads
  • I don’t know
  • Application-centric recovery using Veeam Explorers (for Exchange, SQL, Sharepoint, etc)
  • Fast virtual machine backup
  • Fast virtual machine recovery
  • Good backup job reports
  • integration with open source NAS solutions
  • web version for admin console

Would you buy Veeam Data Platform again?


We have 10 protected workloads as we use the community solution. However we use Veeam to back up full 60+ virtual machines.
  • We haven't purchased the full version of Veeam yet.
with the previous solution, we couldn't make backups of virtual machines and we didn't have the performance to compress data or make quick restores. Veeam has completely changed the way we work with backups, simplified our data restoration processes 100%, and saved thousands of dollars that we spent each year on tapes and purchasing a license for the old backup solution.
We don't have cloud workloads yet
We were able to increase our backup capacity by utilizing Veeam's data deduplication and compression technologies. With this, it was possible to offer more secure storage to the company's users with a guarantee of fast data restoration. The protection against ransoware also guaranteed the department more visibility with other sectors of the company, as it was possible to offer guarantees in the computerization of processes in these areas.
Backup of virtual environments like vSphere, Hyper-V and the like. Backups of physical endpoints and shared folders in NAS and/or SMB environments.
