"Its most valuable features are the collaboration, the file snapshots, and the data protection the solution provides."
"The initial setup for a simple environment is very easy. We just do next, next, next, next for the installation. It can be complicated in a complicated environment. It can be simple for a simple environment. I enjoy installing it. It has a lot of features."
"It is a global major solution for quite a lot of people."
"The main feature for Veeam is that it's built primarily for virtualization, such as VMware or Hyper-V."
"Veeam Is very useful for most environments and can scale up in most environments - such as Amazon or Azure."
"I have found the backup call feature very good."
"This is very user-friendly."

"It should be easy for people not on the network to connect and access their files."
"Veeam Backup Replication has agents for Linux, but they are not supporting Cluster Shared Volumes. It would be great to have agents for Linux be cluster-aware, just like the Windows agents. That's the main pain point. In addition, we should be able to handle the automation of Oracle backups from the backup server. We should be able to schedule, control, and deploy them from the backup server rather than relying on scripts and/or the system you are backing up to perform the backup. Currently, we install the plug-in inside Oracle VMs and then use crontabs to handle the task schedule on each machine for scheduling the backups. Veeam Backup Replication should also support the automation of Nutanix backups from the backup server, not from the proxy. The other not so major thing is that they don't support legacy systems because Veeam is a new company. It is not as old as other companies. They don't support physical workloads that are really old, which a major challenge, but they do have a point. Legacy systems should be virtualized, and if they're virtualized, then the backup is not an issue with Veeam, but some customers like the physical setup, and they don't want to have it virtual."
"It's hard to answer because managing cloud storage in our version could be better, but now that they have improved it in the recent version, I cannot say it's a better point because I know it should be already fixed."
"The replicating from Veeam Backup Replication to Azure cloud could be improved."
"Occasionally, in the course of upgrading one's virtualization platform, the backup can be ruined."
"All our customers would like a cheaper license and more flexible deployment."
"It would be beneficial to have enhanced solutions for database backup, particularly for Oracle databases in the context of SAP systems."
"Offering mobile apps that give engineers a global view of his backup regime would be a "nice to have" feature."
"My main concern about Veeam is that I hope our backups will still be secure in the event of a security incident such as a ransomware attack. In Veeam version 11 they do state that there is ransomware protection, but until it has been proven to be effective, I don't have any assurance that it will prevent data loss."
