Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

The business unable to afford long downtime when there an outage happens to the server. To have offsite vm replica with multiple copies. In order to have server up and running in a very short period, we implement Veaam Backup & Replication to ensure the vm can be powered on in less time when the issue occurs on the original vm.
  • Virtualized workloads
  • In addition to back up, we also replicate some of these workloads
  • Endpoints and physical servers running Windows & Linux
  • In addition to back up, we also snapshot some of these workloads
  • Capacity Tier to store data within object storage for longer term retention
  • Automating test restores to validate recoverability
  • Automating test restores to validate recoverability
  • Replicate vm to offsite
  • Keep vm with retention period of each vm snapshot
  • Send alert for success and fail replicate job
  • The use of proxy seems not smart enough
  • Vm restore can be more intuitive
  • Vm replicate fail if no repository

For starting, we are backing up and replicate about 3 very critical vm. So far no issue encountered. Going to add more vm once we got more storage space to store the vm.
  • Instant recovery
  • Protect entire vm
  • Require more storage
Existing backup software is too complicated and licensing is very expensive. Their dependent media needs to purchase which incur cost. With Veeam Backup & Replication, all those are eliminated.
So far no exploration yet. But will consider in future once cloud price is more competitive
As of now, we only use replication. No experience yet on the nas or file server backup.
Setup and configuration was very easy. Just basic IT knowledge is sufficient to setup Veeam. Once setup, daily vm replicate was very easy to manage. You will get an email alert once replicate job successfully or fail. Backup configuration also optionally happens daily. You will not lose anything if follow the correct steps.
