"I am not a direct user of this product, but my technical guys tell me that they like the product, and it is easy to use. We don't have any issues with it.""Replication is most valuable.""The good thing about Veeam is that its initial setup and usage are straightforward.""Veeam Backup & Replication is a great alternative to what is out there. Some of the backups just allow an agent backup to the cloud. You can back up a thousand different ways, but this is a great way to keep a customer and a company in compliance in that they've got their data secure onsite and offsite. The data being transferred to the NAS at the customer's location and also the data being sent to the cloud is encrypted in transit and it's also encrypted at rest so that nobody is going to be able to hack into that. No one will have the keys to do that.""It's streamlined the backup and recovery for my customers in the sense that it has an easy management console that's easy to set up any type of instant recovery.""I'm satisfied with tech support, because the solution is so stable that I haven't had the need to engage any of the engineers yet.""Its simplicity and the fact that it just works are most valuable. We kind of set it up and generally forget about it. It does what we need it to do in the background, and it doesn't involve a lot of management.""It serves its intended purpose and it works well."

Cons
"The Dell EMC PowerProtect Data Manager reports could improve.

The compression ratio should be improved as well as the efficiency."

More Dell EMC PowerProtect Data Manager Cons →

"The deduplication feature could be improved by changing to global deduplication.""It needs to offer an automatic check for backups.""Device backup could be improved.""It's hard to answer because managing cloud storage in our version could be better, but now that they have improved it in the recent version, I cannot say it's a better point because I know it should be already fixed.""The licensing models, from a reseller's perspective, could be better.""I would like to see the licensing model improved. They have recently changed the model and have made it more complicated.""The recovery and integration features of Veeam Backup Replication could improve. For example, all VM integration could improve, such as with Hyper-V and VMware.""I would like to see more broad support for other applications such as databases, or other operating systems."
