Pros
"Essentially, it replaced our tape backups."

More INFINIDAT InfiniGuard Pros →

"It is a stable and scalable solution that's easy to operate and restore.""Veeam is quick, easy to work with, and its support for Microsoft products is good. They also provide adequate solutions for backing up Microsoft applications in the cloud, such as Office 365.""I have found the most valuable feature to be the new CDP features. It is very popular for my customer's needs.""The backups we have been receiving from Veeam Backup Replication on-premise have been good.""We have evaluated other solutions but Veeam is the best for virtualization.""Simple and stable.""Features with the most value are Instant VM Recovery, SQL Explorer and Exchange Explorer.""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."

Cons
"I would like to see more improvement in the GUI."

More INFINIDAT InfiniGuard Cons →

"Limited support for environments other than VMware or Microsoft.""They need to focus more on cloud backup.""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.""There is a lot of room for improvement, but the primary issue we have is that it's not built for the cloud.""Its price is higher than other solutions and can be improved. They can also change the version of the software more often.""The user interface needs to be improved. It could be simpler to use.""think backing up from physical servers and ransomware security needs some improvements.""The solution could improve by having a version to be compatible with the Linux system. They have improved the storage depository using the Linux proxy and Linux storage, but it can completely run on the Linux environment it would be much better."
