"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.""The solution works well in two different environments, whether it is on-premises, cloud, or a combination.""They provide good technical support and we are satisfied with the support we have received.""It is a flexible, simple, and scalable software-based solution. It has agentless functionality with specific hypervisors and agent-based functionality with specific operating systems. It gives you the flexibility to use your own hardware and back up physical Windows, Linux, IBM AIX, and Oracle Solaris systems as well as VMware VMs, Hyper-V VMs, and Nutanix VMs from one console. It also has integration with major applications that most companies are using, such as Active Directory, SQL, Exchange, or SharePoint. It has integrations, not just for the backup on the image, host layer, or hypervisor, but also for performing an application-consistent backup. It is helpful in backing up to the tape, cloud, DR site, etc. It is really flexible. It is really amazing that you can restore any backup on VMware, Azure, or AWS. As compared to the other solutions in the market. Veeam has really integrated a lot in the past years. It has the best performance and perfect replication.""Replication is most valuable.""I have been in contact with technical support and they are very good.""The most valuable feature is the ability to verify that backups are valid.""For virtualization it's perfect."

Cons
"The application could include a feature to install a set size of data, such as the ability to store a single application with all its registry information for easy transfer.""To improve Altaro, I would like to see the ability to choose more than one backup location at a time.""Basically, how it works is that you have a single local drive, and then you have a cloud backup. It'd be nice if you could rotate the single local backup drive. As of now, you can't."

"The cloud part of it can be improved. There should be an option for Veeam in your own cloud, as compared to the Veeam cloud offering that's currently there. The rest of it is easy.""They need full cloud integration such that an on-premises backup can be offloaded to the cloud for storage.""I would like to see the replication and a recovery plan of the servers in the cloud. It's very important.""Its licensing needs to be improved. Its licensing has become complex since last December. They have changed the way the product is licensed, and there is a lot of confusion. Sometimes, when a new version comes, it seems that it has not been tested enough because I usually find some bugs in it. It could also have more integration with other virtualization products, such as desktop virtualization products and open-source virtualization products.""Additional executive summary reports for the entire infrastructure would be a nice to have.""The DR component should be part of the comprehensive package, not separate.""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.""It would be ideal if they could capture everything and then timestamp and back up everything up to that timestamp."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Altaro had the best prices and ROI in the whole bunch that we evaluated.""The price is great for the utility you get and the licensing has never caused any issues with my company.""Its yearly maintenance fee is fairly high for me to renew for upgrades and support."

More Altaro VM Backup Pricing and Cost Advice »

"We are happy with the pricing and we pay for licensing on a subscription basis.""There is a license required for this solution and the price is a bit expensive but it depends on the environment that you have on how much it will cost.""We purchase a license annually.""Its software solution has a fee.""It's expensive and costs about 4000 a year.""We pay on an annual basis. We pay roughly $12,000 for our software subscription.""The license is a bit expensive.""Veeam is quite expensive. There are no additional costs to the licensing fees. IBM Spectrum Protect is also expensive. They should improve its pricing. They raise the price every time there is an increase in the features of the product. They should think twice about that."
