Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable feature is the duplication.""There are many backup options available in this solution. For example, you are able to do backups of servers, email, OST files, and users. This is a complete backup solution which is very good.""I would recommend it if there is a general case.""One of the things that I do like about it is that it has a very good deduplication feature.""We are satisfied with Arcserve UDP. The most important feature that we use and why we choose this product is the RHA feature.""The standard backup and restore feature is most used."

"The most valuable feature of Veeam Backup Replication is application awareness. Additionally, the solution is user-friendly and it has been working very well.""We have evaluated other solutions but Veeam is the best for virtualization.""The features that I have found most valuable are its back up and recovery. It is a simplified backup because you can do both databases - VM and HyperV. It's a faster backup than the conventional methods because it takes up the bare metal.""Veeam Backup Replication has good performance and can do location-to-location backups. Additionally, it is user-friendly and easy to manage.""The solution just works consistently. I never have issues with it.""The data backup replication has been the most useful feature. Previously, we copied the data hub to an external hard drive but now we are able to store the backup on one of the depository service.""The backup and replication capabilities are quite good.""The replication is the most valuable feature for us."

Cons
"The speed of restores should be improved. We have found the speed of large restores rather slow.""Based on my experience, whenever we need support, there are difficulties with communication when trying to resolve the issue.""Its interface can be improved. I find it unintuitive.""The solution can use a lot of bandwidth when the scheduling is not done, it should auto-schedule itself. For example, if there are 50 users connected in the network at 12 o'clock and the backup is not scheduled. At this time the network offices are going to have performance issues when it is doing a backup. Having a feature to auto-schedule a time when the network is not being used often would be beneficial.""We could not go into granular details of retrieving backup information.""Arcserve UDP is in the middle range of complexity. The interface can be developed a little bit more to be user-friendly."

More Arcserve UDP Cons →

"The Veeam backup application interface is application-based and not web-based.""The integration with other solutions should be improved.""Physical backup is always where room for improvement could be but Veeam has always stated they are not going in that direction.""The price can be a bit expensive.""I only ever found one error. It was when we were doing a file copy job. After using it for ten minutes, it would slow down and cause a bottleneck error.""I would like to see the Veeam cloud solution and Microsoft Office 365 included all in one platform.""The price is an issue. If one has a large number of servers, say... 100-plus, and wishes to add more, an exhausted budget may hinder this ability.""The SME that helped us with the implementation would probably have more insight because he used it way more than we have. We just use it for making sure that our backups are done daily, and the replications are being performed between sites. We haven't had any issues at all with it other than the fact that there is a slight process to acquire additional licenses if we want to expand our number of hosts. That's because it is based on the number of cores and threads that are used."
