    Easy to deploy and user-friendly with good technical support and
    Pros and Cons
    • "The initial setup and deployment are easy. It's straightforward."
    • "The solution is pretty stable right now, however, we believe that the solution could be made to be even more stable."

    What is our primary use case?

    We primarily use the solution to backup our server.

    How has it helped my organization?

    Before we were using Veeam Agent for Linux, we didn't have a backup solution for recovery when our server potentially got damaged. This ensures we have a backup should something go wrong.

    The server deployment is easy. It's quite simple to install.

    The product is easy to use when you compare it to other products. The solution has proven itself to be very user-friendly.

    Veeam Agent for Windows is also very good.

    The solution is very stable.

    Technical support is pretty good. They are quite helpful when we have queries.

    The initial setup and deployment are easy. It's straightforward.

    What needs improvement?

    The solution is pretty stable right now, however, we believe that the solution could be made to be even more stable.

    Very good, simple to use, and fits the purpose
    Pros and Cons
    • "It's simple to use."
    • "There isn't much to improve. They just need to follow the trend or the development of other Linux products. Follow in terms of making the product compatible with new versions of Linux. They just need to include as many versions for Linux as possible."

    What is our primary use case?

    We sell the latest version of Veeam Agent for Linux. 

    What is most valuable?

    It's simple to use.

    What needs improvement?

    There isn't much to improve. They just need to follow the trend or the development of other Linux products. Follow in terms of making the product compatible with new versions of Linux. They just need to include as many versions for Linux as possible.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    It depends on the customer, but we have been using Veeam Agent for Linux for some years now, and we have no problem.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    It's stable. You just have to deploy the updates regularly, and that's it.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    I don't have direct experience but one of our customers had. He was quite positively surprised. He opened a support case with level 3, which means it's not so urgent. After a few days, when there was no response for him, he opened a new case with level 1. Then they called him straight away and solved the problem.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup is straight forward. It's simple to install, but then you have to configure it. There are always some specific situations to be considered and put into the plan and then accordingly, consider the solution.

    The deployment depends on the configuration, that is, whether you have big environments or small environments. If you have just a few servers, then deployment takes two to three hours altogether, but if you have a big environment, then it takes a couple of days.

    What other advice do I have?

    If you have a Linux environment and you need to protect it via an agent, that's when you have to use it. Otherwise, you just don't use it. You back up this little machine without initiation.

    It is very good, and it fits the purpose. That's a 10 out of 10.

    The deployment is easy because the solution is integrated with all our VMware services and VMs

    What is our primary use case?

    Veeam Backup automatically takes full image backups, so we don't need an agent installed on a separate system. 

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I've been using Veeam Agent for more than 10 years.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    Veeam Agent for Linux is stable. 

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    Veeam Agent for Linux is scalable. 

    How was the initial setup?

    Veeam has a "next, next, finish" installer, and the overall deployment is straightforward. The deployment is easy because Veeam is compatible with all our VMware services and VMs. Veeam Backup and Veeam ONE are integrated into vCenter or vSphere site deployments, so we don't need to deploy each server one by one. 

    The Veeam Backup solution or Veeam ONE solution can be deployed through the vCenter management site. The IT team can manage all the VMs and Veeam servers through VMware's management tools. These tools aren't something that the end-users set up or use. It's administered at the system level. We use these tools to manage, deploy, back up or replicate our systems. 

    What other advice do I have?

    I rate Veeam Agent for Linus six out of 10. I recommend it for users of Linux solutions, but it's not common.

    Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
