Pros: Way less expensive than using a higher version of VMWare. Veeam Backup and Restore handles the backup and replication jobs for our small host center with ~35 servers. The setup is pretty easy and the management is not too time consuming. Setting up the software and configuring servers took us under a day. Setting up a new backup job takes about 5 minutes. We spend less than 30 minutes a week managing our backup and replication plans. The price was great - we're getting good value.

Cons: With the version that we use, fail over requires human intervention. Because we run all applications load balanced or clustered, a single failure is not much of an event because we have zero downtime. Migration is not super fast and you're best served with a 10Gbe network. She's a bit slow on single gigabit connection.

I gave customer service only 1 star because we usually can figure out even the most serious technical issue before Veeam can do so. It seems like their first line of support is staffed by the lowest-cost tier of tech (they cannot do much - or at least it seems that way). Support can be slow in following-up to an issue, but, they try hard and always come back with answers (again, usually much too late). We end up canceling most support tickets because we find our own solution.

Overall: I get to sleep at night and I feel good when I go out of town now. All because I know that we have a full-proof backup and recovery plan.

Pros: I use Veeam to backup Microsoft SQL databases. This product is very efficient at backing up databases and runs full backups that would normally take hours with native SQL backup down to under an hour to run by taking snapshots. Log backups happen at specified intervals as well. Everything to backup all databases on all instances of a server is taken care of in one Veeam job. The best part of using Veeam to do the backups, is doing a restore. Restores are very simple because you do not have to worry about getting the last full, differential, and log backups up until the moment that you need to restore to. Veeam takes care of all of that for you. Just select the time you want to do the restore and it pulls together all the snapshots required for the restore. I have frequently preformed a restore on a database from the log backup that just happened minutes before. I can get just a version of the database for testing that is only minutes old without having to do a backup first. I would hate to have to go back to native SQL backups after I have been spoiled by Veeam.

Cons: If you have a problem with the backup, Veeam is very responsive to the ticket, but they might point you towards Microsoft support as well. It's a bit harder to troubleshoot when you have to go between Veeam and Microsoft to find a solution. Microsoft doesn't want to support third party backups, so it could be harder to find a resolution to a difficult issue.

Overall: SQL Backups are much faster and easier!

Pros: As with anything, there's a bit of a learning curve depending on the complexity of your environment, what you're backing up, how, to where, and over what infrastructure. However, if you either built your environment or have worked with it enough to know exactly how it's laid out, the initial configuration is pretty straight forward. The thing I love most about Veeam is that once you have it set up correctly and it's working as expected, you pretty much never have to touch it again. Old restore points will roll off so you can project storage usage, that sort of thing. And if Veeam ever "breaks" it's almost guaranteed to be because something in your environment changed that broke it, not Veeam itself. I have used Veeam for years now and would never consider another backup solution for critical business and accounting data.

Cons: Cost. If I had to come up with a con it would be the cost. Veeam isn't cheap. But then again, I think the stats are something like 40% of businesses who lose most or all of their data are out of business in less than a year. Compare the cost of Veeam to the cost of losing your companies data and it won't seem that expensive. That's how you need to be thinking about it, in which case Veeam is a no-brainer.

Overall: The assurance that the possibility of a total loss of my data is as close to zero as it can be.

Pros: This is the easiest backup solution in the world: install it, tell it the name of the server running your hypervisor, and then decide on which VMs you want backed up. Then you set the schedule, point it to where the backups are to be stored, and let Veeam do its thing. There are quite a few options available, including the ability to decide if you want to omit certain files and folders (like swap files, for example) from your backups. Exchange and SQL backups don't require any add-ons, a really nice touch. If needed, you can even run the VM from the backup through Veeam while you work to fix your hypvervisor. This solution brings peace of mind knowing you can promise little to no interruption of service.

Cons: I found the process for restoring Exchange data, like a single mail item, cumbersome. And while Veeam works great most of the time, it can be a little finicky, with a Windows update to the host server causing backups to fail.

Overall: Veeam Backup and Replication works well most of the time and brings peace of mind with solid VM backups in a system that is easy to manage. I've tried other VM backup solutions, and this is by far the easiest to configure and manage--it really does everything for you once you get it set up. It has saved me so much time compared to my prior backup solution, which required way too much maintenance and troubleshooting to achieve successful backups.

Pros: -Backup at the Virtual Machine level.

-Restore applications, individual files, individual/multiple volume, virtual machines.

-Replication allows for easy configuration of complete Disaster Recovery site, with Failover options.

-Storage APIs to industry leading storage vendors.

-Backup/Restore across sites, use for migrations.

Cons: Troubleshooting often involves searching debug logs, as error messages via GUI or Event Viewers are often generic.

Overall: VBR provides us a reliable, easy to use platform to provide secure environments via Backup jobs to local sites, Backup Copy jobs to remote sites, and Replication to keep DR environments up to date and readily available for failover operations.

Consider a datacenter remodel that was recently performed at a client site. We utilized Veeam to failover virtual machines to the DR site to keep critical operations running. Once the main site was back online, a few clicks initiated the failback operations to the main site.

Pros: Veeam has given us a radical optimization of the backup service we provide to our customers. We no longer have bottlenecks causing restore jobs to take forever, we have real-time data of the B&R infrastructure and we can provide different levels of information both internal and to the end customer.

If all that wasn't enough, we got a 70% reduction of our B&R monthly licensing cost by using Veeam Service Provider Program.

Cons: I haven't found any problem with the software yet. Commercial support from the vendor is really bad in Mexico, but makes no real difference.

Overall: Before using Veeam we had tons of trouble for delivering our SLA to end customers. Restore Jobes were really unreliable because of the time they used to take. This same trouble happened with 2 different technologies, both of them Gartner magic quadrant members. With VEEAM using exactly the same infrastructure everything works as expected. Veeam self-monitoring is really useful for capacity management. The API has allowed us to automate a lot of information gathering and we are now doing tests for automatic provisioning.

The installation and setup process was very simple. Also, our NAS vendor is certified by Veeam which gives us even more peace of mind.

Pros: Veeam is a best solution for your virtual infrastructure. Veeam is not only backup solution. As named Veeam it is also replication solution. GUI, backup/replication job settings are very easy to configure. You can restore your application items such as Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Exchange, Oracle, Microsoft SQL, Microsoft Active Directory instead of restoring entire virtual machines. There is also Instant Recovery feature. It allows to restore directly from backup repository. Once you access the your VM with instant recovery feature you can Migrate your VM into the production.

Cons: Veeam works very stable and there is no complain about it. Veeam now supports physical machines and you can protect your both physical and virtual environment with Veeam.

Pros: We have used Veeam for the following: VMWare recovery, file level recovery, integration with Amazon Glacier Backup and even have tried their SQL table level recovery feature. All of it is very easy to use. The interface and reporting are extremely helpful. Their support is stellar and the product is very affordable. I would highly recommend Veeam to companies my size (about 25 people). I'm sure it's great for larger too, I just can't speak for them.

Cons: The menus can be a little difficult in navigating at first, but you get used to them over time. Also, noticed we can't restore a VM backup to a free version of ESXi but not sure if that's on their end of ESXis.

Overall: It's an easy to use, effective and pretty feature-rich application for managing backups on VMWare servers.

Pros: It is really an easy to get started tool for back up and replication. It is hard to find a tool that will get you such a quick headstart on back up and replication. It does the job very well and is easy for the administrator as well to come up the learning curve.

Cons: The most important advice is to know the environment that is being deployed well and do a thorough proof of concept to be sure that the product fulfills the requirement. Especially, it will good to see the problem with a particular back up being highlighted at the console level and then a deeper explanation at the log level.

Overall: Overall, a very positive experience both with the product and the vendor. Vendor staff were really helpful both during proof of concept testing and the initial on boarding phase.

Pros: Set it up and forget it. This is my least fussy software package. You set it up once and it just works. It has excellent compression and the encryption is handy too. This software comes with features for reducing the load on your WAN links between sites which is great for those branch offices that have local fileshares that need to be backed up. The integration with vmware is tight. Snapshots are created changes backed up and then they are reintegrated quickly causing little overhead to the storage array during and after backups. It just works!

Cons: I have had issues getting my tape backups to work properly as such we have moved to a cloud based backup provider instead of tapes.

Overall: Reliable backups done Right

Pros: Backing up data and virtual machines isn't something you care about until you have to do it. This will do it consistently and reliably. We backup on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis and so far haven't had any issues with the actual backing up of the data.

Cons: The price was a hard sell but basically will pay for itself the first time you NEED to use it. System Administrators should push to have this as a backup software as its reliable. Initial configurations can be a bit tricky and finding documentation for our older version of the software can also be a bit tricky, but not impossible.

Pros: Veeam B&R has been a lifesaver since we first installed it over 8 years ago. We have recovered many files that have been mondified or deleted by staff an students. We recovered entire virtual machines after being delelted for months to reference ocnfigurations that otherwise would have been lost. Veeam is very simple to setup and run.

Cons: At this time I have NO cons. I believe we pay a fair price (education) for the software and we have nothing but good feedback from my team when we need to restore files.

Pros: This allows you to make a direct backup of the VMWare store without altering or harming the file system. Many admins will tell you how useful this is to have a "bare metal" backup of the VMs. It also automates the backup process based on a schedule that you define.

Cons: Sometimes it just fails to run properly, but the notifications are not easy to configure so it can be awhile between failure and realization that it is failing unless you are paying close attention.

Overall: We used this on a VMWare cluster to make sure we were getting full daily backups of the VM images. We manage a lot of servers, so having the notification issues caused a bit of a panic and some additional work on our part to make sure backups were succeeding.

Pros: For years Veeam has changed the paradigm with which backups are made.

The ability to manage everything with a simple snapshot, without interrupting or slowing down the servers is priceless.

The level of compression and deduplication is impressive and saves on storage costs

Cons: When you need a restore Veeam Explorer is only available for the Microsoft world (Exchange, SQL Server, AD) and Oracle. It lacks support for the IBM world (Domino, DB2) and therefore complicates the restore activities.

Overall: It's so easy to use that about anyone can backup and restore servers. Options like instant VM recovery are amazing. You can start a server from a backup within minutes and without restoring them. I never had any issues with backups or restoring entire servers or just files from a server. It just works!

Pros: The best thing about Veeam is how easy is to use use. It simplifies what has generally been a complex "dance" into something easy.

Cons: Veeam is an amazing piece of software. It has made my job easier and given me a piece of mind knowing I can restore data in a quick moment. If I had to pick something I like the least, I would have to say it would be the heavy cpu and memory usage. But, considering what the software is doing, this usage is very expected and understandable.

Pros: Easy to use, easy to setup, easy to configure backup jobs. All the enterprise features you would expect without the over complication other vendors provide.

Cons: First level support is not that great.

Some warnings and errors are vague and would like the ability to have better front end messages without having to look at logs.

Pros: It has very nice, granular features and settings, and the alerting is pretty comprehensive. Also, I'm a big fan of agentless, hypervisor level backups.

Cons: The amount of effort to fine tune the backups to complete within our backup window was a difficult and cumbersome task.

Overall: Agentless backups with, guest OS file level recovery.

Pros: Easy to use, easy to set up. Veeam works extremely well.

Cons: The price. Veeam is extremely expensive, which will almost certainly be a turn-off for smaller organizations.

Overall: I can't imagine using anything else to backup our environment. We use VMware, but it works with Hyper-V too. But again, very expensive. It's a meaningful barrier to entry.

Overall: Made our backup and restore functionality a lot easier to do. whole VMs take minutes to restore and no more use of tapes to do restores. The replication off site is so much easier and less time overlooking back ups

Pros: the integration with the NetApp Snapshots, which I normally use to quick restore resources and use the disaster recovery option that veeam offers.

Cons: when doing storage snapshots, to schedule monthly backups you only have the option to choose the days of the week instead use different options like the first day of the month for example

Overall: save time when doing backups using storage snapshots in this case NetApp is one of the best integrations when using veeam

Pros: I love the "automatic" setup. It discovers everything and configures you ready to backup. I also love the "provider" network that allows me to periodically send my backups off-site to a cloud provider. Very slick and configurable as to not swamp my network.

Cons: My biggest complaint is I cannot use Veeam to backup my NAS storage. It can talk to it and everything. It seems like it would not be hard to back it up, too.

Pros: Setup and configuration is straight forward. Under 15 minutes. The GUI is very intuitive and easy to use. You can setup a backup job in under 5 minutes. The restore wizard makes doing a file level or a whole virtual machine restore a breeze. The same thing can be said for the replication aspect, basically, point and click.

Cons: For you replications, you will need an adequate amount of bandwidth (5Mbs min) else your replication job might run longer than you expect it to.

Overall: Piece of mind that my virtual machine infrastructure is protected and that I can recover in a short period of time from doing a restore. Very useful if you had a ransom ware infection.

Nothing that i can think of at the moment.

Overall: Use this software to backup about 200 servers (some physical, but mostly virtual)

Pros: Easy to find all your backups in one place, easy to manage all your backups

Cons: Some features are not intuitive, although there are resources to help you find what you need to know

Overall: I have been using Veeam Backup & Replication for a year now and the more I use it, the more I realize how handy it is. It helps manage all of our backups being run by local Veeam Agents and allows us to track their progress, manage those backup files, and more. We set up backup repositories, set up backup servers, create backup jobs for all of our VMWare Virtual Machines and servers, and more. I don't think we could support the infrastructure like we do now if we did not have Veeam Backup & Replication.

Purchased to provide a backup solutions and found it to be much more useful than just a backup prod.

Pros: Tight integration with VMWare, Flexibilty in job schedule. The ease of VM restores both in time and location of restored images. File level restore is also an ease to use.

Cons: Initial setup took a bit work to get the scheduling correct. Some of the setup selections aren't clear where they are in the interface.

Overall: I can sleep at night knowing I have a backup product that I can rely on. It has saved countless hours in backing out operator induced errors.
