Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

I have used several backup and replication software applications in the past. We have found that Veeam is VERY user-friendly and reliable. The user interface is simple. The application is reliable and the technical support is excellent. I strongly recommend this software and will continue using it. Not only do we use it for backups but the snapshots are an excellent addition to our disaster recovery plan should there be a major issue with our data
  • 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
  • Application-centric recovery using Veeam Explorers (for Exchange, SQL, Sharepoint, etc)
  • Capacity Tier to store data within object storage for longer term retention
  • Automating test restores to validate recoverability
  • Application-centric recovery using Veeam Explorers (for Exchange, SQL, Sharepoint, etc)

Pros

  • The user interface is very simple and intuitive to use.
  • Reporting and notification on success and failures is excellent
  • Technical support is very strong

Cons

  • Not sure what can be improved with the product

We are backing up 30 virtual and 4 physical servers in two locations. We backup up 2 SQL servers in addition to 3 on-prem exchange servers
  • Veeam is rock solid for backup and recovery. We have not considered looking at any other solution because we do not want to mess with success. It is well worth the annual fees.
We were previously using another product but became frustrated with the support that they were providing. We reviewed several other solutions but for backup, replication, and snapshots we decided that Veeam was the best value for our company.
We do not host data in the cloud so we do not use Veeam for cloud backups.
We use Veeam for file share backup. We are requested to restore files on average once a week. In the past 8 years, we have not been able to restore files for end-users.
We have had success with Veeam in both the physical and virtual environments.
