Additionally, it is user-friendly and easy to manage.""The features that I have found most valuable are its back up and recovery.

Cons
"The UI, the User Interface, needs to be improved. It's not as clean or modern as it could be."

More NetApp SnapCenter Cons →

"There is always some room for improvement, especially with some of the different technologies such as DB2. Commvault has a DB2 agent, but Veeam still doesn't have it. We have to use the universal one for it.""They need full cloud integration such that an on-premises backup can be offloaded to the cloud for storage.""Scalability, as well as licensing costs, need to be improved.""Device backup could be improved.""They need to focus more on cloud backup.""If you upgrade too quickly, you may have issues.""Sometimes Veeam is not that effective when it comes to legacy environments.""Its price is higher than other solutions and can be improved. They can also change the version of the software more often."
