Veeam Backup & Replication

Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

We are using Veeam Backup & Replication as we have manual backup issues and difficulty doing manual backups and storing them on multiple storage locations. Veeam Backup & Replication solves all of our problems, we can schedule backups and set different storage locations like local, network, or cloud. It generates alerts for completion of backups and it is very easy to manage backups.

  • Application-centric recovery using Veeam Explorers (for Exchange, SQL, Sharepoint, etc)
  • Automating test restores to validate recoverability
  • “Instant” recovery or portability between platforms (physical > virtual > cloud-hosted)
  • Failover or recovery scripts/plans for orchestrated recovery
  • Automating test restores to validate recoverability

  • Disaster recovery plan deployment.
  • Time saving for auto backup scheduling.
  • Good to know alerts if backup is completed successfully, warning or error message.
Management of manual backups and saving on various storage locations with alerts enable us to make use of Veeam Backup & Replication. Before our experience was not very good as it was difficult to do backups and restore checks but now using Veeam Backup & Replication is a great experience.
No, but we are planning for cloud deployment.
Yes, and we are making a backup of critical folders and files of unstructured data using Veeam Backup & Replication.
In all scenarios where we have Vmware, Hyper V, or physical machines setup of Linux or windows, Veeam Backup & Replication is best suited in all those scenarios. Where you have Xen Server hypervisor base deployment, Veeam Backup & Replication is not much suited, we need to use agent-based backup.
