Veeam Backup & Replication

Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

We use Veeam B&R to protect the integrity of client data from destruction and comply with regulatory needs based on industry. Whether the client's server pool is virtual or physical, Veeam allows us to backup/replicate at a rate that matches our client's needs. If a machine goes down, we can spin up a virtual instance of the machine on the B&R appliance. It is a very flexible tool. Some clients use a completely on-premise model, while others use a hybrid of on-premise and cloud storage. Replication of virtual machines to cloud storage is quite straightforward. I have used this in real life. One client's data storage was taken down by a power company equipment explosion which created a surge that blew out several essential pieces of equipment in the data center. Luckily, we had a Veeam appliance in a separate, unaffected area and were able to spin up a replica that was only 10 minutes old in less than 30 minutes. Everyone kept working until we were able to have the storage array repaired. Then we just pushed the data back to the array and were back to normal. Staff only had to re-enter 10 minutes of work. A big save.
  • Virtualized workloads
  • Endpoints and physical servers running Windows & Linux
  • In addition to back up, we also replicate some of these workloads
  • Cloud-hosted VMs within AWS or Azure
  • NAS filers
  • Capacity Tier to store data within object storage for longer term retention
  • License portability as your environment needs change
  • Automating test restores to validate recoverability
  • “Instant” recovery or portability between platforms (physical > virtual > cloud-hosted)
  • Instant recovery is my biggest seller.
  • File level recovery
  • Ransomeware protection
  • Configuration of some types of inventory can be tricky until you get used to it.

6 virtual servers. 9 physical servers. 27 workstations. This is still growing and I hope to double this year.
  • Great value for the price compared to other options.
1. Traditional backup scenarios offer little protection from Ransomware. Veeam does. 2. The ability to recover rapidly is huge! Instant recovery really is almost instant. 3. Bare metal restore is another great time saver.
Really fits well in SMB environments.
