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 features are the special plugins such as SAP HANA databases, Microsoft SQL, and various types of virtualization.""The solution has extensive documentation and a very active community.""It is easy to scale Bacula Enterprise even if your system is growing tremendously in data and servers.""It can be used in virtually any environment we have onsite."

"The solution is easy to use and have good performance.""One of the most valuable features of Veeam is that the restoration is easy and reliable.""One of the most valuable features is the simplicity of the solution's administration.""Simple and stable.""No problems with stability.""The most valuable features are the backup and restoration of our VMs. Additionally, they add features regularly.""It is a rock-solid backup solution. That's all, and that's what we were asking for.""Replication is most valuable."

Cons
"A more user-friendly interface (GUI) can be developed.""We would like to see an improvement in the functionality of the GUI.""The initial setup could be a bit easier.""We are looking for a unique interface that can rule both enterprise and open source editions. Such a thing does not yet exist."

More Bacula Enterprise Cons →

"They need to improve their technical side.""All our customers would like a cheaper license and more flexible deployment.""Veeam Backup Replication has agents for Linux, but they are not supporting Cluster Shared Volumes. It would be great to have agents for Linux be cluster-aware, just like the Windows agents. That's the main pain point. In addition, we should be able to handle the automation of Oracle backups from the backup server. We should be able to schedule, control, and deploy them from the backup server rather than relying on scripts and/or the system you are backing up to perform the backup. Currently, we install the plug-in inside Oracle VMs and then use crontabs to handle the task schedule on each machine for scheduling the backups. Veeam Backup Replication should also support the automation of Nutanix backups from the backup server, not from the proxy. The other not so major thing is that they don't support legacy systems because Veeam is a new company. It is not as old as other companies. They don't support physical workloads that are really old, which a major challenge, but they do have a point. Legacy systems should be virtualized, and if they're virtualized, then the backup is not an issue with Veeam, but some customers like the physical setup, and they don't want to have it virtual.""We have had problems with some jobs. For example, when we have a VM with a large SQL Database, sometimes we cannot adjust the time for transaction logs to back up and overlap time.""I would like to have them come up with more robust features when it comes to individual endpoint protection.""In the past, Veeam had a host-based license, but now it will be part of Microsoft's core license. I don't like this licensing model. Host-based licensing is better for my system. Maybe so other organizations prefer the core-based.""They need a better solution for backend storage.""The only improvement I could think of is it could be cheaper—cheaper is always good. Sometimes the product is just finished. Cheaper is always nice for the customer, but the company needs to benefit so that they can keep maintaining the product. New Windows versions, etc., always take some work. At the moment, I wouldn't switch to another solution because of the money."
