"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.""It is a stable and scalable solution that's easy to operate and restore.""I like all the backup features in Veeam.""Veeam's file monitoring capabilities are strong and consistent.""The product is very simple in its design.

Cons
"It still needs to grow and add new features. IBM Spectrum Protect Plus, I believe, requires time to become competitive due to a weakness in the other software products.""IBM Spectrum Protect Plus could improve by adding SAP Rena.""The replication feature is not available.""There could be better integration with Spectrum Protect and Spectrum Protect Plus, it should be one solution.""IBM Spectrum Protect Plus could improve security.""The one issue we are facing is related to file restores.""You end up needing to do a lot of troubleshooting to get things to work effectively."

More IBM Spectrum Protect Plus Cons →

"There are certain solutions, such as Rubrik and Cohesity, that are little by little, taking market share. Veeam needs to be more aggressive to keep their dominance in the space.""This is an expensive solution.""I have issues with the licensing.""I like the Acronis backup solutions on the block-based part of backups. That is a functionality that Veeam does not provide.""Veeam Backup Replication could improve by making the monitoring system free. If I would like to have any monitoring system by Veeam I have to purchase it. It should come free with the solution. They should provide a monitoring system to make the work easier and smooth.""I don't see much room for improvement except that the price could be better.""I would want them to improve some technical features that are still missing because we are working with NetApp NVMe and they're not fully supporting it yet. But both NetApp and Veeam know about it and they're working on it.""It is always nice to get products cheaper."
