  • fees up time
  • confidence in recovery
the key that drove us to look at Veeam backup & Replication was the immutable backups and automatic testing of our backups. Once we dove into the automatic testing we found it really was a perfect fit for our environment and needs. The customizations were exactly what we needed for our customer base.
We have utilized Veeam in our cloud approach it was an easy goto solution because we are were so comfortable with it in our on prem deployment.
we have not taken advantage of this capability as we do not run any nas type devices.
we have found great value in veeam thanks to the ransomware portection it provides and the ease of set it and forget end to end backup and recovery. it allows our team to no worry and not have to constantly manually check status, it's all available via reports and notifications but the work is all done automaticlaly.
