Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows Valuable Features

The solution is very stable.

They have already invested a lot of R&D and mainly they're supported on most of the Windows scenarios, even the custom-tailored parts. 

The solution allows for full integration. I can deploy the Agent from the backup server and manage the backups all from the backup server. Or I can use the Agent as a stand-alone and discard the backup server. In terms of restoration, I can restore the entire machine, specific file systems, application actors, et cetera.

Restoring to the cloud is pretty flexible.

Technical support is quite good.

The initial setup has improved quite a bit from version 4 to 5. You don't need to worry about downtime.

If you have windows machine at home and you'd like a backup, you can always download their free edition and plug in an external hard disk, and do a full backup of your laptop.

They just released Version 5 for Version 11 and they released some amazing features with it, such as the backup and restore snapshots features. Before the agent was only able to back up through the network. Now it's even able to back up through the SAN fabric, depending on the customer environment.

I haven't had any disasters, so I haven't had to actually do a full restore.

The solution is extremely stable.

The ability to go into the virtual machine and do a file extraction has been quite useful as I have staff members and teachers that will either misplace or accidentally delete a file. They then rely on me to go get it for them. It's quite useful.

I basically just set it and forget it and use it to check my reports. If my reports look good, I don't even mess with it, I just let it do its thing. It's very hands-off.

The solution is very affordable for small businesses.
