"Veeam Backup Solution easy to implement and manage your enterprise data protection requirements"

Comments: Berfore we had Veeam Backup and replication, we had different backup solutions that were complicated to maintain and use.
With Veeam Backup and replication, we reduce the backup window time of our Critical business application that are virtualize with VMware. Also it was really easy to have a offsite copy of the backups. We reduce the time and availability of the restores and disaster recovery.
Now we have more time for other important tasks and we can sleep well knowing we have a robust backup solution.

Pros: I like the fact that this product its really integrated with all the major virtualization solutions with advanced features that you can leverage for the protection of your most critical systems. Its user interface is easy to use and the reports are really helpful so you know exactly how your backups are doing. Also I like the great integration with VMware. I can have granular backups schedule and replicate those backups to an offsite with just a few clicks. You can test your datasets and know for sure that the backups and recovery are going to work.

Cons: Well, I think the features that the Veeam backup and replication solution has are all good. Maybe the cost aspect will be difficult for a small workshop, If you need more advanced features, it will cost you more. On the technology aspect, they keep adding more features and compatibility with major public clouds. so overall I don't find some downside to this solution.

"Like the slogan says, Veeam just works."

Comments: Veeam fulfills both full VM backup/restore and file level restore needs for our company. We also use it in a limited capacity for replication to our DR bunker.

Pros: When you set up Veeam according to the guidelines put out by the company, Veeam is a useful, powerful backup/DR tool. Even when you fudge on your Veeam infrastructure with a tight budget, it's very forgiving as long as you don't push it too much or have unrealistic expectations. Documentation for the product is very robust from a support perspective and a peer perspective.

Cons: The only real negative experiences I've really had with Veeam were the few times I actually had to contact support for instances that could not be solved by reading or googling. Admittedly, these times were back in the version 6.5-8 days. Much time was wasted with emails back and forth with a resolution only really taking place once. I cannot comment about the current state of Veeam support. For all I know, it's the best around, now.

"Reliable, powerful, and easy to use system backup and replication software"

Comments: Our overall experience has been excellent. The included enterprise management tools have helped us with improving and streamlining our backup monitoring, and the reliability has reduced our time spent managing backups.

Pros: The reliability of the software is top-notch, unlike many other enterprise backup solutions. Jobs start, complete, and are verified without issue, and there are very rarely failures to track down, diagnose, and rerun.

Cons: Although the user interface is easy to use, making changes in bulk can be cumbersome, such as when you want to make modifications to numerous jobs, or to numerous endpoints included within a job.

"Watch out for the bait and switch"

Comments: When contacting support I felt like I was dealing with a use car salesperson just trying to make more money.

Pros: This software supports Exchange 2019 at the time we started using it in November 2019. By now there are many other options that will support Exchange 2019 that are at a better price point and are more honest.

Cons: Watch out for the bait and switch! On the website Veeam is selling “starter edition” that comes with the “standard feature set” , under the standard feature set cloud connect is clearly checked. Also, there is no way to buy anything that come with the “standard feature set” except “starter”. But the standard feature set doesn't do cloud connect even though it is clearly checked. After you have paid for "un-refundable software" Veaam will say they want an additional $400.00 to make cloud connect work. Even the datasheet for VBR shows the standard feature set does cloud connect. Veeam think that is OK?

"Veeam Backup & Replication, changing the backup software industry"

Comments: Our experience with Veeam has been just great, it has enabled us to more prepared and confident incase of a disaster. It has improved our overall RPO/RTO.

Pros: Veeam Backup and replication can be defined by the word easy. From the extremely easy user interface, as well as straight forward configuration and administration makes one of my favorite software, which have made life as system administrator very easy.

Cons: The reporting feature is although pretty reasonable, in my opinion it can be further improved by increasing templates for custom report generation.
