"The most valuable feature of the solution would be the basic feature of server virtualization, we use it everywhere.""Technical support is helpful and always available.""The most valuable features are the virtualization and the performance on the virtualization platform.""VMware vSphere is a stable platform.

Once you deploy it with a stable version of the server or the hardware, there's no issue at all.""The most valuable features are that it's stable, easy to use, and it's flexible.""The most valuable features are stability and support.""We have the possibility to move workloads to different locations.""I have found the solution to be flexible, and the vCenter and vMotion useful."

Cons
"Veeam ONE could be improved if it had a better data recovery feature.""Veeam ONE could improve by having capacity planning, intelligent automatization, and ransomware.""When you have to renew the licenses you sometimes have some trouble getting rid of the old one and reassigning it to the new one. That's an aspect that could run smoother and could be better.""They need to support more platforms.""Sometimes, it's a little difficult for me to use its user interface. Its scope is very big with a lot of tuning, settings, and so on. If it's difficult for me, it must also be difficult for our customers.""I've never considered what improvements Veeam needs, and I haven't asked our customers if there is any room for improvement. As the manager, I only see the reports.""Veeam's biggest limitation is the lack of integration. I can't use the tool because there is no integration between the tool and the environment.""The appliance doesn't have a domain. If there was a competitor with a domain, I'd likely use them."

More Veeam ONE Cons →

"Monitoring information could always be improved.""The UI of VMware could use some improvements, especially in dark mode.""Its price can be better. It is very expensive.""The challenge that we have is keeping the system up to date, as well as having the internal resources to maintain that platform. We're not an IT company, so it's challenging for us to keep the IT resources in-house.""The implementation of VMware vSphere is easy. For integration companies, it's easy, the final client cannot do it alone but for an implementor it's easy.""The only concern that I have with VMware is the support. It is very limited and can be better.""One of the areas creating a crash is when you are cloning.""There should be more stability in the updates. They had an issue with the last release."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "For what it does, the price is acceptable."
  • "If you have Veeam Backup and Replication with the essential license then this solution is free. If you were to purchase Veeam ONE by itself it is priced cheaper than competitors."
  • "The licenses are code-based or server-based for Veeam ONE. The last version is 12, and it is host-based, I don't like to move to a code-based solution."
  • "Veeam has been raising its prices in the last two years, so it's now lacking some competitiveness in pricing."
  • "I have not used the resale license in our testing environments. Sometimes, our customers used the trial license for 30 days and so on."
  • "I don't pay for the solution, so I can't comment on the cost."
  • More Veeam ONE Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "It is expensive in terms of cost, licensing, and professional services."
  • "It is expensive."
  • "In my opinion, the essential version is a good price."
  • "The price of this solution is mid-range."
  • "I think it's a fair price. We are using it on the production side, and everything is good from our experience. That's why I would say that the cost isn't too high. However, it would always be nice if it was cheaper."
  • "Pricing is a little bit on the higher side, compared to other products."
  • "Container support is the last great addition for VMware and it is worth the money you spend on it."
  • "The license growth of vSphere depends on the growth of the visual environment and the addition of more hosts."
