Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"If you have a lot of central sites and remote sites, you can easily set up the replication and make it easier.""They introduced a new feature called the Immutable Repository feature, which helps protect environments from malware attacks that target backup file extensions.""The most valuable features I have found to be Instant Recovery, quick restore and rollback, and asynchronous copy. It is a complete solution for our needs.""The main feature for Veeam is that it's built primarily for virtualization, such as VMware or Hyper-V.""The features that I have found most valuable are its back up and recovery. It is a simplified backup because you can do both databases - VM and HyperV. It's a faster backup than the conventional methods because it takes up the bare metal.""I know it's not exactly a feature, but I accept it works and it's easy to use. With the Veeam Backup & Replication, we have no problems in managing restore. Obviously, the most important thing about backup software. I used to say that every backup software can make backups, but only good ones can make a restore.""It's very easy to work with and it's very reliable.""This solution is very flexible and user-friendly — it's very good. It's very good with our virtual and physical infrastructure."

"It was especially useful with the appliances we use on a daily basis.""It is easy to use, and you can run it with all kinds of client software environments. It works well with the most popular software, file systems, and operating systems. It is very useful to us.""They are among the top in the world for backup and recovery.""The most valuable feature is its stability.""The solution offers a lot of really great features that organizations can utilize and take advantage of.""I like NetBackup's accelerator feature. You can take a full backup with incremental speed and integrate it with block tracking.""I like the virtual server backup.""The deduplication feature is useful. Deduplication and compression features are what I like about NetBackup."

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.""We have had problems with some jobs. For example, when we have a VM with a large SQL Database, sometimes we cannot adjust the time for transaction logs to back up and overlap time.""The implementation was straightforward. However, we used an integrator, the process could be easier for us to do it ourselves.""They need a better solution for backend storage.""Some of the best practice documentation could be improved.""The licensing models, from a reseller's perspective, could be better.""I think that Veeam could improve some performance issues when the backup itself is restored. I'm also using HPE StoreOnce, which has deduplication, and when I'm trying to test or run backups, it takes a lot of time. I think they could improve the testing for backup copies.""Even though the speed has improved over the years, I think that there are some instances where it still takes a while."

"In terms of improvement, it's very difficult to make it work with multiple business units. Its security model is too constricted.""Licensing costs are quite high.""It would be helpful, in future releases, if the solution could add WORM (Write Once Read Many) support right within the product.""We want a solution that can be scaled-out because our data is growing very quickly, and we aren't able to back it up quickly. It takes one or two days, which is a problem. It is very slow. We just use one backup server. We want another solution with maybe a backup server cluster to back up more data in one day. We want a solution that can be scaled-out to back up our data quickly and efficiently.""When the customer is using SaaS applications like Office 365, the integration falls short and needs to be improved.""The implementation process could be simplified to make it quicker.""We would like the Java console to be updated.""In regards to protecting the physical servers with parameters, it's a long and difficult process."
