Overall Satisfaction with Veeam ONE

We primarily use Veeam for backing up our Windows VMs in our VMWare vSphere multi-tenant environment and allows us to easily manage and analyze our backup infrastructure. It is not currently being used by our department across the whole organization; we currently have an enterprise license with NetBackup. The advantages of Veeam One is the simple installation, and integration to backup, monitor and report in real-time. There is a cost savings in data compression and data deduplication as well.
  • Simple installation and integration into our VMWare environment
  • Save cost on storage with data compression and data deduplication
  • Single management console to manage and monitor our environment
  • An affordable Enterprise Solution; seems with pricing you are "locked-in"
  • Veeam is a virtual-only solution; we rely on NetBackup for physical servers backups
  • Positive: Simple and Easy installation and interface to manage your VM backups
  • Positive: Fast and Simple restoring of VMs
  • Negative: As a "virtual-only" solution, there are concerns with the "lock-in" due to the Tier pricing
Veeam ONE is one of the premier backup solutions for VMWare Virtual Machines that is specifically tailored for VMWare. We feel that it's reporting capabilities to maintain complete histories of all objects, settings, and changes and superior compared to other vendors.
Veeam ONE is suited for the VMWare environment; less suited for the physical environment. The question can also be regarded in terms of sustainability; given the fact that Veeam is considered a smaller company, compared to larger vendors such as Veritas, is in the City Of Los Angeles interests to invest in a different backup solution that has been proven to be stable? What happens to Veeam 5 years from now? Will they expand beyond the Virtual Backup realm?
