Veeam Backup & Replication

Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

Daily & Weekly VM backup to local and also replication to our DR site. We are also using Veeam to backup to tape certain jobs. The flexibility of Veeam to accomplish all of these tasks makes it a great product for us. We have appreciated being able to use one product for so many different functions. We've recently added server configs to a physical box, then Veeam backs those up to tape.
  • Virtualized workloads
  • In addition to back up, we also replicate some of these workloads
  • Enterprise UNIX servers running Solaris & IBM AIX
  • Enterprise applications such as Oracle or SAP HANA
  • Cloud-hosted VMs within AWS or Azure
  • NAS filers
  • In addition to back up, we also snapshot some of these workloads
  • Application-centric recovery using Veeam Explorers (for Exchange, SQL, Sharepoint, etc)
  • Automating test restores to validate recoverability
  • Failover or recovery scripts/plans for orchestrated recovery
  • Application-centric recovery using Veeam Explorers (for Exchange, SQL, Sharepoint, etc)
  • Fast & easy recovery of files from local backups.
  • Solid performance for local & replication to DR site.
  • Great support from Veeam tech support.
  • Calculating digest process is very time consuming on VM changes.
  • Sometimes struggles with very large VM's.
  • Cleanup of deleted VM's requires a few extra steps.

We back up all of our VMs (over 500) locally, and a majority of them are replicated to our DR site. We currently have 99 jobs that we are using. That also includes our monthly tape jobs (that go to the vault) and many other tape jobs we keep as other backups to help with ransomware protection.
  • Great performance at DR test due to Veeam replication performance & quality.
  • Less "babysitting" backups as the program works great and often.
  • Helped us accomplish newer tasks of backing up local files & configs to tape.
We jumped on board with Veeam very early on in our virtual infrastructure. We have been a client ever since and never had a reason to change. It works great, does what was advertised, and continues to improve. Adding tape backup & O365 features just confirms the commitment Veeam has to this product and application.
We have not used the cloud as of yet, but it is on our radar. We are very aware of Veeam's capabilities to harness this technology.
We are using file-share backups on local servers. We put certain server configs on those, then run backups to tapes. We also run incremental of certain VMs to protect us from ransomware.
Veeam has been a great solution for us for 10+ years. They do a great job of keeping versions up to date as VMWare releases new versions. The software is easy to install, easy to manage/maintain, and works solid. We piggyback jobs evenings & weekends, and most issues are not Veeam-related. Great product that we use in so many different ways & components.
