Pros
"I have been in contact with technical support and they are very good.""The integration with some storage systems like HP or Nutanix and great support are the most valuable features.

The functionality of the whole software is good.""The replication is the most valuable feature for us.""The initial setup is simple to do in Veeam Backup Replication.""Before Veeam, we had backup infrastructure sprawl. Veeam was able to reduce our overall backup windows while reducing our dedicated backup infrastructure.""The initial setup is very easy.""The good thing about Veeam is that its initial setup and usage are straightforward.""The most valuable feature is adaptability, where it automatically adapts to the environment that it's being installed on."

Cons
"While the Veeam Backup Replication tool can mostly back up all the data in the environment, the AIX from IBM backup capabilities nowadays could stand improvement as they are not featured on a single pane of glass.""The recovery and integration features of Veeam Backup Replication could improve. For example, all VM integration could improve, such as with Hyper-V and VMware.""There should be better use of the external hard drives.""If you upgrade too quickly, you may have issues.""I have found that the reporting could improve in its structure.""Technical support can be improved.""The price could be lower.""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."

"Technical support is somewhat slow and is in need of improvement.""They need to improve their support. In the beginning, their engineers had trouble understanding the issue we were presenting. It took a lot of conversations for them to start troubleshooting the problem.""Licensing costs are quite high.""Veritas NetBackup has been in the backup and recovery market for quite a long time, but somehow, from my own observations and from feedback from end users, its user interface is lagging behind other comparable solutions such as Veeam.""The user interface could improve, it seems a bit out of date.""The pricing could be improved, and the interface could be more intuitive.""The solution costs too much.""The solution is quite expensive."
