Veeam Backup & Replication

Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

We use Veeam Backup & Replication to backup the on-site servers for the Financial Infrastructure of the largest private employer in the city of Philadelphia. Our Veeam installation includes two (2) disk storage units in two different physical locations and an enterprise tape library so that we can follow the 3-2-1 rule. While we back up mostly virtual servers, we have some physical servers in our infrastructure which need to be protected as well.
  • Virtualized workloads
  • Endpoints and physical servers running Windows & Linux
  • In addition to back up, we also replicate some of these workloads
  • Application-centric recovery using Veeam Explorers (for Exchange, SQL, Sharepoint, etc)
  • Capacity Tier to store data within object storage for longer term retention
  • License portability as your environment needs change
  • Immutable storage to protect against ransomware
  • “Instant” recovery or portability between platforms (physical > virtual > cloud-hosted)
  • Immutable storage to protect against ransomware
  • One of the major reasons why we moved to Veeam was because of the lack of support with our previous backup/restore solution.
  • The replication features of Veeam are much easier to administer than those of our previous product.
  • We have much more human interaction with Veeam than we did with the vendor of our previous product.
  • Backing up the actual Veeam server.
  • The feature where Veeam is supposed to pull tapes in numerical order does not always work as advertised.

Do you think Veeam Data Platform delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Veeam Data Platform's feature set?


Did Veeam Data Platform live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Veeam Data Platform go as expected?


Would you buy Veeam Data Platform again?


While our environment has grown, this growth was expected when we made our purchase.
  • We spend significantly less time when there are issues because Veeam support actually supports the product (unlike our previous product).
A large conversion of physical servers to virtual and a combining of two IT infrastructures with two different backup/restore solutions.
Yes. We had a need for an on-site backup with a heavy retention period for some of our data but were not in a position to be able to purchase expensive storage.
Very well suited for backing up a VMware environment.
