"The solution is easy to use and has high performance."
"The most valuable feature is the virtual backup."
"Avamar's source side deduplication is very strong, it can easily back up remote sites' data, and not much bandwidth is required on the Avamar side."
"The solution integrates well with Unix, Windows, Hyper-V and VM."
"Every product is good and bad, but its claim to fame is that it is scalable. We're doing more than 3,000 VMs. Every single night a complete image backup to disks and replication are easily done in under four hours."
"Its stability and deduplication capabilities are most valuable."
"The installation of the solution is easy."
"The initial setup is easy."
"It's the most easy-to-use backup replication that I have used so far."
"It is a powerful software for communicating with the storage and for redundancy."
"What I like most about this solution are the simplicity and the price-performance ratio."
"The solution just works consistently. I never have issues with it."
"It's fairly easy to manage and set up."
"The most valuable feature is the internal recovery."
"The solution can work for companies no matter the size or scope."
"Veeam communicates with the vCenter in VMware, which means it's very smooth and doesn't interrupt production on VMware and you can backup or restore anytime, anywhere."
"It's not the best solution for big databases."
"The interface has room for improvement. It's not ideal right now."
"Avamar needs a greater emphasis on storage targets. If it's going to keep pace with the times, it needs more ability to leverage cloud storage."
"It would be helpful if there was cloud support."
"The solution, in the future, should offer support for mobile."
"The screen design is a bit back-dated."
"There also needs to be single sign-on support."
"I would like to see better integration with third-party applications and platforms."
"The whole graphical user interface is very easy, but the details are hidden deeply and aren't easily visible. You cannot easily see the details and explore or choose the settings. We should be able to easily explore various settings and options. If you can see more details while choosing the settings or setting it up, it helps in getting the software running easily. For example, in Microsoft Office, you can see much more in the interface than in Veeam Backup & Replication. It is a complex software. It is not easy to use, and you must know what to do and where to do. The user manual has more than a thousand pages. They should give some direct information through the software and improve the software. On their website, they can have some videos and step-by-step information to make us come straight to our goals."
"Physical backup is always where room for improvement could be but Veeam has always stated they are not going in that direction."
"Veeam Backup Replication could improve by having better integration with the cloud. Additionally, they do not have direct integration to S3 or Azure storage for the backups of the VMs. This feature would be beneficial because we have to go through the scalable repository which I do not like."
"The initial setup of Veeam Backup Replication is straightforward. The process took approximately two days. The setup could be streamlined to take less time."
"All our customers would like a cheaper license and more flexible deployment."
"If a single file is corrupt then the restoration of the entire backup will fail."
"It needs to offer an automatic check for backups."
"The Veeam portal should be better integrated with all the parts of the new release. But there's always a workaround to replicate the new solution. I'd like to have better integration with other solutions like SAP."
