Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

A fantastic backup solution that helps us to retrieve data when it is needed. It enables us to keep backups on-site and off-site for disaster recovery, including duplicated tasks. I found the features and reports to be rather strong. It's not difficult to practice restores. I've never required vendor help to use or configure Veeam Backup & Replication - it works great and has excellent documentation!
  • Endpoints and physical servers running Windows & Linux
  • Cloud-hosted VMs within AWS or Azure
  • Virtualized workloads
  • Endpoints and physical servers running Windows & Linux
  • Cloud-hosted VMs within AWS or Azure
  • None of the above
  • Storage Integration is a great plus with vendors like HPE Nimble, IBM, and Infinidat but requires the Enterprise Plus license.
  • The ability to restore to Active Directory, SQL, Exchange is very easy with the software as well as Replication and Recovery Testing with SureBackup.
  • One of the most appealing features of this backup solution is the wide range of platforms it can backup. You can backup any VmWare or Hyper-V virtual machine depending on the license purchased, but it also comes with a client that can be installed on any platform and can backup files at the file level.
  • For small businesses, it's a tad pricey up front.
  • The download has several gigabytes, which is quite big for backup software in my opinion.

The organization has a total of 14 machines. The result is as expected. I say this because, based on a number of online reviews, I was confident that it is capable of doing the work.
  • Being able to restore an entire virtual machine.
  • After a virus assault, I was also able to restore data.
  • One problem I encountered was recovering data after one of the servers had failed. The volume of data stored online was large, and restoring it took a long time.
Configuring and managing Avamar was (at best) a chore. The backups were good, but they were a hassle to manage and utilize for image-based backups of the systems we use, so we sought for a more elegant solution, which led us to Veeam.
In a variety of ways, my company has profited. We would have lost a lot of data if this service had not been available. Due to the nature of the data we handle, this would have put us in a bind.
Veeam was simple to set up, simple to use, and recovering complete Virtual Machines or even restoring things at the file level is quick and simple. Veeam is so simple to use that even things that appear abstract or difficult are actually rather simple to configure. I use a plugin to connect my Veeam appliance to my physical storage in order to coordinate backups, site-to-site replication, and build up a virtual tape library. I completed all of this in a single day, and my backups began and ran properly on the first night. Some of the Veeam errors are cryptic, and I wish they made more sense right away when you see them so you could figure out what went wrong, but Veeam assistance is amazing, so I can't complain too much.
