"One of the most valuable features is security and connectivity to the data."
"The most valuable feature is the ease in which it backs up our data."
"The initial setup was very easy."
"I have no issues with the stability at all. So I don't necessarily care about the stability of the product. I look more at whether or not can I recover. And I haven't had a failed recovery yet. I've got no failed recoveries of all my years."
"The hardware is always updated and it's saved us a lot of money."
"The feature that I have found the most valuable is that it is easy to create a backup by using Azure Backup. It also has a good user interface and nice features for sending notifications when any backup fails or there is a change in the status of virtual machines."
"Azure Backup is good because it is entirely cloud-based, which means that you can be 99.9% sure that your backup is safe."
"I like that it's a stable solution and their support is good. I think Microsoft's commercial force is superior."
"It serves its intended purpose and it works well."
"Its portability and being able to back up between different platforms are the most valuable features."
"The most valuable feature is that I can back up the whole machine and then restore it relatively fast."
"It's the most easy-to-use backup replication that I have used so far."
"The backup and replication features are most valuable."
"Veeam's file monitoring capabilities are strong and consistent."
"Pricing is fairly reasonable and not overly expensive."
"The initial setup is very easy."
"Technical support is in need of improvement."
"On-prem can be complex to set up but the cloud is simple."
"The time required to restore files should be a little faster."
"They need to improve the frequency of the backup. You can only backup one to three times a day. It would be better to back up continuously throughout the day."
"The solution is quite technical. I wouldn't describe it as user friendly. It could be simplified a lot to make it more accessible to the average user."
"Lacks an AI system that would enable easier upgrading of the hardware."
"We have a concern with the backup when were are working with VMs that are running in Barracuda Firewall because it usually fails."
"To make it a ten, it should have the ability to extend the retention and to perform a copy of the data outside of the subscription - with no additional costs."
"It's a great product, but only if you have everything virtualized."
"They can improve the features and Veeam Enterprise Manager. The interface and features are kind of limited. It would be good if they can provide more features and a better interface. For example, if I want to provide certain users with the privilege to back up and restore and do day-to-day tasks, I cannot do it in the current version. It is like you either give everything to everyone or no user can have access to anything. In version 9, a lot of features were missing, and it wasn't clear. Version 10 is easier from the communication perspective, and the disk backup option is very clear."
"The ability to do more backups should be addressed."
"They need a better solution for backend storage."
"There is some complexity we have experienced when using the solution that should be simplified."
"The deduplication feature could be improved by changing to global deduplication."
"Occasionally, in the course of upgrading one's virtualization platform, the backup can be ruined."
"We would like to see support for some additional storage systems."

Reviews from Real Users
There are a number of characteristics that make Azure Backup extremely effective. Two of these are the flexibility that it offers users and its overall effectiveness.
PeerSpot user Ayman Y., an IT manager at NOMAC, notes all of the different backup options that Azure Backup offers. He writes, “It has many features. First of all, you can schedule a backup for the client as you like. You can do a backup from the whole virtual machine as an image. You can do a backup only from files and folders. It has every option. All options are available for the backup, for the restore, for the bandwidth utilization to do backups, even virtual machines or a physical machine. If you need to do a backup of the whole image from the virtual machine, all these options are there.”
PeerSpot user Muzammil M., a senior operations engineer at the AlGosaibi Group, notes the effectiveness of Azure Backup when he writes, “Azure Backup is good because it is entirelycloud-based, which means that you can be 99.9% sure that your backup is safe. This is the reason that I suggest its use for companies that need to back up critical data.”
