"The most valuable feature is the ability to restore the VMs into a test environment."
"This is easy to use with a simple restore feature."
"The restore capabilities are the most valuable features."
"Veeam Is very useful for most environments and can scale up in most environments - such as Amazon or Azure."
"Veeam Backup Replication is stable I have not had any problems."
"I like how Veeam intuitively integrates with Zerto."
"The integration of Veeam Backup Replication is very good."
"If you have a lot of central sites and remote sites, you can easily set up the replication and make it easier."
"It made it easy for us to handle the daily backup of endpoints."
"The main difference I see between Vembu and the other solutions we've tried is that with Vembu, you don't need anybody to tell you what to do. Once you have done the installation you just look at the user interface — it's very friendly — and you can do things yourself without resorting to help from anybody."
"Moving to cloud backups eliminated the need for clients to change USB drives or worry about drives being stored offsite."
"When you're looking at your dashboard, you can see all your active jobs. You can see exactly if they're successful or failed and you can actually drill down and see what caused the problem. The fact you can see that right away is nice."
"Their support is great. I think they work 24 hours a day. I get a very quick turnaround time from them no matter the day or time that I send them an email."
"It backs up our virtual machines with the CBT, Changed Block Tracking."
"The ability to map a drive and restore a separate file is most valuable. The restoration activity is good."
"You can restore all your data or partial parts of it. You can restore a specific version of the data. It has a lot of options for restore, so you can have the correct data that you want to restore. This is very important. You must know what you are going to restore. Otherwise, you may be overwriting correct data with other data. You must know what specific files you are restoring as well as which version. Partial restore is very important because there might be some files which are newer than the backup and some files that are corrupted. You need to restore some files from the backup, but not all the files."
"Sometimes Veeam is not that effective when it comes to legacy environments."
"The reporting feature can be improved."
"In the future, I would like to see better support for direct backup to tape."
"The initial setup could be simplified."
"Its price is higher than other solutions and can be improved. They can also change the version of the software more often."
"The pricing could be improved."
"In the past, Veeam had a host-based license, but now it will be part of Microsoft's core license. I don't like this licensing model. Host-based licensing is better for my system. Maybe so other organizations prefer the core-based."
"I would like to see better features for exporting to cloud-based repositories."
"The reports are at a basic level and there is room for improvement there. It only has historical reports and VM backup job-level reports."
"The dashboard should more interactive."
"I have had issues with new client registrations. There are frequent connectivity issues to the cloud servers. Multiple times, I have had to prove to support that it wasn’t a problem on my end. It always works out in the end, but it is troubling to have the same issues repeated across different clients. Issues eventually get escalated to the cloud team and are mysteriously resolved with no changes on my end."
"It would be a great improvement if they can give a console to control the systems. All other vendors let you simply log in to the cloud console and control everything from there, but for Vembu, whether you choose Vembu Cloud Backup or Vembu Disaster Recovery, you still need to install the Vembu software on your on-premise system and configure it from there. It would be great if I can get a cloud console to manage the systems."
"They need to improve their marketing because not many people are aware of it. People ask me what is Vembu, and I have to explain to them it is a good tool for backup and other things."
"Maybe they can add some features regarding working with the vCenter cluster to be able to have more power over the cluster overall, not just over a single or specific host. Also, I would like some enhancements in technology for the web interface, e.g., some interactive technologies to advance the interface of Vembu. Although the current interface is very good, maybe they can use more advanced technologies for its web development."
"We do a lot of internal automation, so the Vembu API definitely has some gaps. The Vembu API could definitely use some improvement. We do rely a lot on automation outside of just the regular interface. We've noticed that the Vembu GUI is good, but we do leverage the APIs for a lot of stuff, and there's definitely some room for improvement there."
"What I would love to see on the dashboard are graphs, per backup job. I want to see the month and the days in it... If a job has failed, when did it actually fail and what percentage of it failed? Did it fail completely, 75 percent or 100 percent or did it only fail partially?"
