"The most valuable feature is that it is very elastic. It's adaptable because it's very flexible and modular.""I like the fact that it gives you the possibility to set the data out of the customer on-premises site and to have an off-site copy in your Cloud Data Center.""The best part about this solution is that it just works.""While there are some complexities, Veeam tries to keep the product simple and offers a good knowledge base. It's quite structured, so you can easily take one subject and learn about it simply by reading through the documentation.""The stability and restore options on the solution are very good.""This solution works really well and it is simple to deploy.""I've found flexibility to the most valuable feature.

Cons
"When it runs, it runs well but when it doesn't run, the solution needs to make it clearer as to why and what the troubleshooting process is. All this would be possible if the error logging was streamlined a bit.""It is for site-to-site replication. When something goes wrong on your site, you only get 15 minutes before it also goes wrong on your replicated site. There should be some way to be able to say that we want to restore it, but we want to restore it to the version from yesterday. It should support versioning. I would also like to see real-time scanning for advanced threat protection, more straightforward billing, and quicker turnaround on the tech support.""It could include more of a backup and recovery.""We need to be able to move the virtual servers and not build and then port them across. They need to improve the hypervisor."

More Azure Site Recovery Cons →

"I think Veeam Cloud Connect could be more stable, scalable, and secure. I think better pricing is needed.""I would like to see more advanced training courses made available to cover complicated use cases.""Doesn't back-up from KVM.""The bandwidth optimization needs to be improved and have better efficiency so that you send fewer amounts of data from one site to the other.""The flexibility results in more administrative GUI. The GUI needs improvement.""We need the solution to offer IT storage.""Basically, a huge amount of storage capacity can be required in certain cases.""The pricing is much higher than what our clients expect it to be."
