Pros: -Customizable backup targets (Local Storage, Network Storage, CSP).

-Allows for ease of migration/restore to new (even dis-similar hardware).

-Email Alerts.

-Volume Level Backups, with multiple restore options (Volume Level, File Level).

-Multiple schedules available in latest version.

Cons: Troubleshooting can involve sifting through Debug logs, as errors tend to be generic in nature.

Overall: Our CSP utilizes VAW on all physical and non-VMware licensed virtual machines, typically to NAS devices. It allows for very quick backups with its (default) forever-incremental settings, although this is customizable to run Fulls at scheduled intervals as well. Restores of File Level, Application Level (SQL, Exchange) or Entire Disk(s) level can be accomplished by various browser applications included with the software.

Licensed versions have the capability to configure Cloud Connect (Cloud Service Provider) storage, giving you a secure, off-site backup option.

Pros: Easy to use, easy to manage backups, completely free

Cons: Installation takes bit of time, log files can be difficult to find if you don't know where to look

Overall: I started using VAW when I started my help desk job. It's been a very rewarding experience. I always knew that keeping good backups was a best practice in IT, but I didn't know how to go about doing it. Veeam Agent allows me to backup my PC to a number of places: local storage, local network storage, and the cloud. It allows me to manage a lot of different options, such as setting full or incremental backup intervals, and whether or not I want status emails sent to me or not. It's very easy to grab log files for submitting to Veeam customer service reps through the VAW console, and the customer support is exceptional. Highly recommend this product to anyone who isn't sure about how to manage their backups, either personal backups or professional backups.

Solid product for individual, small/medium business backup needs.

Pros: Feature rich product that is constantly being updated/ upgraded.

Features are still being added.

Low cost solution for backing up workstations and servers.

Customer support is well organized and will help you reasonably quickly find the solution to your problem.

Cons: While Veeam is working hard on de-bugging this software, it still has bugs.

You need to be technically inclined to use this software to its potential and be able to troubleshoot problems yourself, or contact support.

Overall: I use this software to backup about 20 workstations and 10 servers in different environments. It works well.

Pros: This software is really easy to install, configure and use. It does what it needs to do. Backup your Windows computer or server. Works both physical and virtual.

Don't forget to create the recovery ISO, that way you can restore your machine to any other device.

Cons: No application aware backups possible. For instance, not possible to trunk SQL log files. Also no multiple schedules available.

Pros: Veeam provided a very dependable backup solution for our Windows 2012 R2 servers. It ran consistently and was easy to configure.

Cons: We found that the backup process consumed resources in an inconsistent manner on select servers. We were unable to diagnose the cause of the resource usage several times.

Overall: The value of the software is apparent though there are more feature-rich options available.

Pros: I've tested Veeam when it had the "Free version" with limited features, and i liked it, but it don't satisfied my needs at the time. Now, they recently launched that "Comunity Edition" that has all features like the Standard version. I've tested again and i became very impressed with it. It's functional, easy to use, now it supports incremental and scheduled backups, for free! I think it's the first solution that offers all that features for free. Very good initiative from Veeam.

Cons: Sadly, it's not easy to implement rotating medias with the free version of the product. You can do this doing some trickery things but it would be better if was supported natively by the software.

Overall: Very good experience. For free software (I used the free version), it is full of features and can satisfy the needs of a personal user doing desktop backups to a large industry using many servers. Very reliable solution!

Pros: I like that this software installs easily and is configured to store data in my Veeam repository.

Cons: I don't like that I have to configure this software on the host rather than in the Veeam B&R console.

Overall: I really like this software. I was pretty glad when they changed it from a free unsupported option to a paid supported option as I use it to back up my physical windows servers.

Pros: *Free version is perfect for small customers with standalone servers and important workstations.

*Centralized management

*Ability to backup physical failover clusters

Cons: I don't like that you can not set the from and to addresses in the email notification. This would be ideal when managing multiple standalone machines. For example you can only set to/from to backup@example.com and if you have a strict SPF/DMARC policy, you're in trouble if you want to collect the logs.

Pros: I love the fact that I can do a file level restore from an image level backup with Veeam. It's reliable and so easy to setup. Incremental backups also help cut down on size.

Cons: I didn't like the fact that I would receive a sales phone call the morning after downloading the software.

Overall: Best backup software for local backups. It's more flexible and reliable that Windows native backup utility and it allows for file level backups from an image backup.

Pros: It was easy to setup. Easy to configure. Runs automatically. Has special features that disconnects the backup drive so that your backups are safe from harm even when you're not sitting at your computer.

Cons: I guess the interface could use some improvements. There is not much that I dislike about this software though. Could also use some more features, but I don't have anything specific in mind.

Overall: Secure backups at a low cost. Eliminates worrying about losing any of my data by giving me peace of mind.

Pros: It is a really cool system for backup. I used when backing up vms. It's easy to easy setup and install.
