Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"They will assist me in achieving whatever budget issue the client may be having.""This product has unique capabilities that lead the product category in test data management, cloning and recovery."

More Actifio Pros →

"It's simply very good software for backup purposes.""The solution is very easy to deploy.""Veeam Cloud Connect has helped us to reduce the cost of cloud storage for an offsite solution using their archive storage feature.""One of the best things about Veeam is that they have consistently improved on themselves since they started. Personally, I've been using Veeam since around 2013/2014 when it was only supporting certain hypervisors such as HyperV, and since then it has become truly mature enterprise-level software with a lot of versatility.""It's relatively easy to use and the ability to recover in a short period of time has been great.""The solution can work for companies no matter the size or scope.""The product could be improved if they wrote more PowerShell scripts for controlling Veeam.""Veeam is easy to use."

Cons
"While the product does support various databases, the company needs to make more of an effort to support N-minus-one compatibility.""Areas that need improvement would be the support for recovery in the physical environment."

More Actifio Cons →

"There is a lot of room for improvement, but the primary issue we have is that it's not built for the cloud.""The cost needs to be considered.""The stability could be better, specifically in the cloud.""I would like to have them come up with more robust features when it comes to individual endpoint protection.""There are certain solutions, such as Rubrik and Cohesity, that are little by little, taking market share. Veeam needs to be more aggressive to keep their dominance in the space.""Veeam Backup & Replication should include a cloud solution.""I think Veeam needs to improve the file installation process, as well as more technical things like snapping feature issues. Sometimes during backup, when it's taking the scan snaps on the ESXi, it started and didn't remove the snapshot from there, which consumed storage on the EXSi. It could be improved with more technical depth. The response time for Veeam's technical support could also be improved.""In the future, I would like to see better support for direct backup to tape."

  • "My understanding is that it is a fairly small price point."
  • "Its software solution has a fee."
  • "It is more expensive than other solutions."
  • "If you tell Veeam that you're competing with, for example, NetBackup or Backup Exec, or Dell or Micro Focus then they may lower the price. They are very competitive."
  • "I don't know what the costs are for sure, but I think that it's on a yearly basis."
  • "Its price is reasonable for a big company or a big client. It is not too much. It is cheaper than VMware."
