Veeam Backup & Replication

Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

We use Veeam to back up our servers to the cloud in 4 different sites. We have roughly 100 servers backing up into a cloud repository at staggered schedules. Some Windows servers are backing up using the agent. We have our ESXi hosts backing up and replicating to the cloud. Each ESXi host can have upwards of 10 to 20 virtual machines on them. Creating backup tasks and backing up is a breeze with Veeam.
  • Virtualized workloads
  • Endpoints and physical servers running Windows & Linux
  • Enterprise UNIX servers running Solaris & IBM AIX
  • Enterprise applications such as Oracle or SAP HANA
  • Cloud-hosted VMs within AWS or Azure
  • NAS filers
  • 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)
  • Automating test restores to validate recoverability
  • Immutable storage to protect against ransomware
  • “Instant” recovery or portability between platforms (physical > virtual > cloud-hosted)
  • Failover or recovery scripts/plans for orchestrated recovery
  • Failover or recovery scripts/plans for orchestrated recovery
  • Create backup jobs quickly and easily
  • Restore from backups quickly and easily
  • Daily summary reports with data utilization and statuses
  • Better reporting functionality
  • Easier upgrade paths
  • Less hops when upgrading to major versions

We are currently protecting around 100 servers with Veeam. These are a mix of Linux, ESXi hosts, and Windows Server operating systems. I think when we first acquired Veeam, we had roughly 75 servers and now we have roughly 100. Any and all of our servers are protected with Veeam and that's always been the vision.
  • It makes our infrastructure more secure from a recoverability standpoint
  • It makes our work less with their easy implementation for servers
  • It saves us time when disaster recovery testing and restore servers
We had an archaic system of backing up to tape before moving to Veeam. We decided to leverage the cloud and Veeam was the name we kept coming back to when researching products. I am very happy we went with Veeam as it checks all of our boxes and is very easy to use.
Our organization has benefited from this because we can spin up disaster recovery scenarios rather easily. From then we can do test scripts and validate our backup and recovery plan. Before moving to Veeam, we did not have this capability. We could only make broadly educated guesses about what will happen and how we will recover from a disaster. Using the cloud has been very useful.
We do backup our NAS devices and we haven't had a problem yet.
Veeam should be a staple for all infrastructure teams. Backing up servers is no longer cumbersome and tricky. Veeam makes it easy to select the backup schedule, where it's backing up to, the intervals, and the recovery point. Everything is managed through a single server taking the guesswork out of where to go to perform management functions.
