It is easy to use and has a great community behind it that supports everything. we have been using this for a while now and it is the one that has helped us in making sure our backups are in safe hands. support is also great and has helped us through everything with ease.

No

Would you buy Veeam Data Platform again?

Yes

When we started with Veeam we were not much dependent as we were not used to the tool but once we saw the benefits we shifted and are in process of shifting almost all the necessary data so that in case a failure happens again we will be able to have everything back and not impact our performance
  • Saved all the data lost due to failure
  • Was quick and saved a lot of time in restoration
  • Was able to make quick decisions and help in creating a smooth workflow
Veeam has been a very useful tool for us. If it wasn’t for Veeam we would have lost a large amount of data since a few months back we had a great failure which caused almost 50% of data loss but thanks to the backups we were able to recover back all our data with ease and resume work.
