Cons
"It seems like Unitrends moved away from enterprise customer engagement and moved more towards the managed service provider market.""Probably the biggest issue I've had is actually paying for the unit, and part of that problem is that they use a third party for the billing.""I would like to see the real-time replication process improved, and a zero RPO feature added.""I would like to see more storage options for the free version.""There's a lot that can be made better. For example, it could be more scalable."

"Veeam currently lacks features for backing up to network-attached storage. Veeam Backup & Replication agents do not support S3 storage. Only Veeam Backup & Replication server supports S3 storage.""Pricing can be improved.""The automation could be better.""The initial setup of Veeam Backup Replication is straightforward. The process took approximately two days. The setup could be streamlined to take less time.""The initial setup is not always easy, and customers often need a lot of help to get Veeam up and running successfully.""There is a lot of room for improvement, but the primary issue we have is that it's not built for the cloud.""Limited support for environments other than VMware or Microsoft.""Although the solution offers documentation, it has it only in English, which doesn't help us much in Belarus."
