Stable and straightforward to install, and offers point-in-time recovery
I use RecoverPoint for VMs to for critical backups It is a point-in-time restore, which is quite handy. The price of this product could be lower. I would like to have the HTML 5 interface working because it is currently not functioning with the VMware environment. This means that you have to use…

Has a straightforward backup process
It required 2-3 people to deploy. It is deployed in a hybrid manner. It took almost 2-3 hours for the process to complete. The deployment procedure begins by accessing the Veeam Backup website to download the necessary software. Subsequently, the software is managed on the server where installation is intended. Before proceeding with installation, it's recommended to have a backup, ensuring functionality on the server. The installation process itself is distinct, not combined with the backup sector. Each step is downloadable, contributing to the installation information. The final step involves creating a backup job. Users can choose the backup type they prefer, whether it's full, implemented, or differential. Following this, the backup can be saved on desired media, such as servers.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:


"Point-in-time recovery and ease of deployment are valuable."
"The installation is straightforward if the version you have is compatible with your infrastructure."
"The solution is quite stable. We haven't experienced any kind of bug or glitch. We haven't experienced crashes."
"One of the standout features of Dell RecoverPoint for Virtual Machines is its real-time data protection capability."
"It is a point-in-time restore, which is quite handy."
"The most valuable feature is that it is journal-based and you don't have to replicate a lot of data."
"Continuous replication with lower RTO and RPO is the most innovative feature. Its tight integration with VMware for VMware VMs is also valuable."
"The most valuable features are the data center recovery administration and the time of recovery."
"The most valuable feature is the continuous backup."
"In terms of most valuable features, we are mostly using the Cloud Connect feature. It is flexible because you can use it on-prem and on cloud."
"Veeam Backup Replication is easy to use and has high performance. The backups are very fast. It's a complete solution that fulfills our current needs."
"It is a global major solution for quite a lot of people."
"I have found the backup call feature very good."
"The most valuable features of Veeam Backup Replication are ease of use, dashboards, and reporting."
"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."
"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."


"It would be good to have a critical application on the customer side."
"The solution is not easy to use. It's actually quite hard. If it could be simplified it might be better for the end user."
"It should have features for recovering a group of virtual machines and full-scale security. For recovering all the VMs at once, they don't have a GUI option, and we have to use the command line."
"I would like to have the HTML 5 interface working because it is currently not functioning with the VMware environment."
"In the next release of this software, I would like to see options that help to decrease the bandwidth required, such as compressing the data."
"I would like to see integration with EMC NetWorker in the next release."
"The configuration process seems a bit challenging, and the installation takes a bit longer than expected."
"The solution could improve by being more easier to use. However, once you have used it for a while it becomes easier. Additionally, there could be better support and compatibility with management by having a command-line interface. This would be beneficial for the customers."
"Veeam Backup is not enhanced. There aren't any enhancements yet and they are still using traditional methods for snapshots and to perform the backup, like many other vendors. Another improvement would be simplifying and integrating their software."
"All our customers would like a cheaper license and more flexible deployment."
"Veeam needs to have more support for non-Windows systems and other databases. For example, I can do SQL with Veeam but not Informix or Oracle. This is unfortunate because we have many partners with Oracle systems and Informix databases, and Veeam does not yet have the agents we need for specific Oracle and UNIX operating systems."
"I have a problem with the VM. When we started doing a backup, it takes a snapshot for our virtual machines, but when we try it two or three times, in some cases, our virtual machines go to a consolidated state. I don't know why this problem happens. But I still think Veeam is a top-ranking solution."
"Add an archive option to support legal obligations."
"It would be ideal if users could know that their data is backed up and have some security functionality where you can actually use the backup to spin up a new cluster and take it from there."
"They fixed everything that I was hoping for. It is pretty good. There were a few things in 9.x that I was wishing for, and they came true in version 10. We were looking for retention without having to make a copy job. We're getting ready to migrate m365 to the cloud. I haven't dived into it to make sure, but I wish the m365 backup would integrate into the current console so that we don't have to use two different consoles."
"While the Veeam Backup Replication tool can mostly back up all the data in the environment, the AIX from IBM backup capabilities nowadays could stand improvement as they are not featured on a single pane of glass."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"Pricing-wise, it is pretty much fair for any customer who only has a VMware environment. Licensing is based on the number of VMs that you want to protect at any given point in time. Licensing is not based on size."
"This is an expensive product."
"It was a part of a backup solution. So, it was free for us."
"There is a license required for this solution and the pricing depends on how many virtual machines you have."
"This is not a very cheap solution and compared to others, it is expensive."
"We spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on Veeam each year, although it is not expensive for what we get."
"The price is reasonable."
"Veeam Backup Replication is inexpensive for small workloads."
"It is relatively cheap."
"The price is great. It's software related, and I know that might be a good thing because it's a cheap solution to buy and we have been looking for a program for backup and they fit the bill."
"We have increased our scalability while being able to free up senior resources from recovery activities. I estimate our overall savings to about $20,000 per year."
"This product is not cheap, but it's well worth the cost."
"It's the market price. It isn't expensive, nor is it cheap."
