Overall Satisfaction with Veeam Backup & Replication

We use Veeam Backup & Replication to keep our company protected from data loss at all levels. Aside from just backing up and versioning, it's great for VM management tasks as well, i.e migrations and upgrades. The licenses for hypervisors to do live migration are very expensive. We use Veeam Backup & Replication in place of these licenses and it does a great job for us. So the savings alone on this aspect of our deployment makes the product a no-cost solution. The licensing for Veeam Backup & Replication is excellent and priced better than the competition in our experience. The universal license model is fair and priced well. I've used several disaster recovery products in the past and Veeam Backup & Replication is by far my favorite one. Veeam Backup & Replication is a little more in-depth to deploy than some other solutions, but the tradeoff is that it is extremely capable, flexible, and configurable for almost any scenario.
  • Virtualized workloads
  • Endpoints and physical servers running Windows & Linux
  • In addition to back up, we also replicate some of these workloads
  • In addition to back up, we also snapshot some of these workloads
  • License portability as your environment needs change
  • Automating test restores to validate recoverability
  • Failover or recovery scripts/plans for orchestrated recovery
  • Automating test restores to validate recoverability


  • Backup schedules are powerful and very tunable.
  • Instant recovery of single files is awesome.
  • Licensing model is set it and forget it.


  • It should be easier to implement copying the entire backup repo to external storage on a schedule. This should include cloud services.
