Veeam Backup & Replication

Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

We rely on Veeam to create and manage backups for all production databases and application servers. In the past, before using Veeam, we once lost 2 months' worth of production data that had to be reworked. Thanks to Veeam, we're able to achieve a recovery time of fewer than 15 minutes on our most critical production databases. We have proprietary data that has been generated and maintained over the last 40 years, and Veeam helps ensure that data is protected at all times. As the head of the IT department, Veeam helps me stay confident that our data is safe, even in the worst-case scenarios.
  • Backup storage management/inventory
  • Replication
  • Backup Chain Migration
  • Success/Fail Reporting on completed backup jobs could provide more information

  • We went from a 6 hour restore time, to 15 minutes.
  • Our previous provider was costing over $12,000 annually, Veeam is costing us $400
  • With a dramatically lower restore time, Veeam generates an ROI greater than the licensing cost simply by allowing us to get production workers back on a task that much faster.
  • Security has been able to be enhanced, removing the need for users to keep local backups of critical data.
Veeam is best suited in server environments where often file-level restores or full machine restores are needed. Veeam's licensing cost does not make it very efficient for endpoint backups when compared to other solutions.
