"The stability is excellent."
"I find the data to be most valuable."
"We are very satisfied with this solution. It's easy to use and efficient."
"The feature that I have found most useful is its data duplication."
"It's very competitive in terms of the price and technology. Also, the development team continuously makes updates. The data reduction feature is very useful."
"The solution is very scalable."
"Good starting capacity and scalability."
"The most valuable features of this product are its guaranteed reliability and its duplication capability."
"From my experience, Veeam is very good. Its interface is user-friendly. We can restore it whenever. It's not complicated. It's very easy to manage and administration is very easy."
"The advantage of Veeam Backup and Replication is that it is very economical. The price is affordable and the cost benefit is good."
"The features that I have found most valuable are its ease of management, it is not complicated, it is very reliable, has good support and a lot of knowledge on the market for integrators."
"The backup and replication capabilities are quite good."
"The most valuable feature of Veeam Backup & Replication is the ease of use."
"The features I find most valuable are probably the VMware snapshot backups and the Veeam replication. Their replication is very good. It can easily be used for disaster recovery in a number of situations."
"One of the most valuable features of Veeam is that the restoration is easy and reliable."
"I can't think of any improvements yet for Veeam because they are very good. It integrates very well with Microsoft applications. It is very easy to integrate. Micro Focus can also integrate but it's more complex. You have to know the product very well to be able to integrate. While Veeam, it's very user-friendly. You don't need to have certifications or anything to work on Veeam."
"First-time integrations are difficult in NetWorker. NetWorker software needs to be simplified. It's very complex."
"When you use Data Domain, you have to have at least 20% free space so it can work properly. Sometimes we struggle with that, because we wanted to use all the free space, but then Data Domain becomes really slow. I understand that 20% is needed to process all the data, and doing the duplication and compression and all that, but it would be a big improvement if they did not require that 20%, because it is just too much to have available."
"They need to make migration easier."
"The price could be improved."
"The only problem is that it's more expensive than any other vendors available in the market."
"Installation and deployment for this product need improvement. These processes need to made easier. Currently, it's not an easy installation for customers. This product needs to be installed by professionals."
"We have some problems with backing up on the Power Platform. PowerServer is an IBM product, and it forces us to back up over LAN, which is not suitable for us."
"The software from Dell that can be used to operate Data Domain needs to have enhancements made to the user interface. It is too complex."
"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."
"It is always nice to get products cheaper."
"Integration with other equipment could be improved."
"I would like to see better features for exporting to cloud-based repositories."
"The parallel backup process from the Veeam server to Veeam has some limitations. The number of parallel backups should be increased and the compressional is very low. Sometimes it is half or one-third, but other backup solutions' compression levels are very high."
"In the future, I would like to see better support for direct backup to tape."
"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 tech support could be better."
