"The most valuable feature is the quick restoration. We can restore the data quickly."
"The installation of Veeam Agent is straightforward."

"The solution is useful for taking backups for end-user laptops and end-user workstations where data is involved."

"Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows's most useful features is the ease of use and user-friendly."
"The most valuable features of Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows are the backups, ease of use, and report manager."
"Acronis Backup isn't scalable at all."
"It supports Microsoft SQL and Microsoft Exchange, but it does not support Oracle databases or Postgres."
"Acronis has some limitations on the cloud side."
"The solution could be better if some of the features were more in-depth."
"Acronis Backup can improve on the virtualization backups because they are not as good as Veeam Backup."
"I have no suggestions for improvements as I have only used the product for a month and have yet to really discover all of its aspects."
"The solution could use a single sign-on integration that can default to the admin dashboard. Right now, it's only username and password. If you had had an additional two-factor authentication, this would be beneficial for me."
"When you are using enterprise hardware and software that increases over time, there need to be better and more management features. For pure backup software, it is fine, but when it comes to managing a large infrastructure it is lacking."
"The solution lacks instant recovery."
"Interface could possibly be improved."
"A feature I would like to see is universal restore. At the moment, restoration can only be smooth on the same hardware. Let's say you have a server and you back it up with Veeam Agent, in case it fails or crashes. If you later buy a new server because the same one isn't available on the market anymore, there's a high chance that Windows will not boot up if you restore from the Veeam backup because the hardware is now different. Acronis has the universal restore feature, so it will work with generic drivers and you can restore Windows in any dissimilar hardware. As far as I know, Veeam doesn't have this feature yet."
"The support could be improved a lot, as it is currently non-existent."
"There isn't really anything I would like to improve. Maybe the solution could be more secure."
"It fulfills our needs in terms of features. In terms of improvements, they can maybe improve its documentation."
"The price of Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows could improve."
"Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows should improve by having more features, easier deployment, and compatibility with Unix boxes."
