Overall Satisfaction with Veeam ONE

We're currently using Veeam ONE for infrastructure reporting for our Corporate IT team's virtual environment. It gives us a single pane of glass view into our backup operations, virtual environment health, and helps us with our capacity planning.

Backup operations are reported on regularly using the premade reports that came with it. It took no effort to get this up and rolling after setting up the SMTP configuration. This shows us daily and weekly reports on backup jobs and issues as they arise. Virtual environment health is very similar to VMWare's vSphere client, and has similar alarms and functionality. It's much easier to give a junior administrator access to this than the production vSphere console, and less risk in doing so. Capacity planning also came ready to go out of the box. It takes a few minutes to set up the reports you want to subscribe to, and they're easy enough to customize. There are reports for almost anything you need already, but you have the ability to create your own too.
  • Gives insights into virtual environment health.
  • Comes with pre-made reports ready to roll out on day one.
  • Alerting is easy to set up and nearly "set it and forget it."
  • The licensing is tricky to understand. You can have an enterprise BR license or a Veeam ONE license, and the split modules read from only one module where the license is actually loaded into it.
  • Documentation could be a little better.
  • It's not exactly pretty to look at. Themes and tweaks are pretty limited.
  • The most valuable reports can safe us a lot of headaches and downtime. What used to be an emergency once in a while is an afterthought as we proactively prevent those same issues in less than 5 minutes a week.
  • The simplicity has allowed us to offload some virtual environment monitoring to a junior associate.
  • Initial deployment took some time because we couldn't get licensing figured out, but it has been smooth sailing since then.
I've only had one issue that required support and they were able to walk us through the fix pretty quickly. Documentation has also gotten better with new versions, so there's not much left to ask for. I believe support aligns with your Backup and Replication license, so consider that before deciding on what level of support you need.

Would you buy Veeam ONE again?


Organizations with a high percentage of virtual machines in their environment, that need to add capacity planning and better reporting capabilities. I would also recommend using Veeam B&R to really get the most out of it. You can mix and match Veeam and Hyper-V infrastructure in one view if that's a requirement too.
