We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The solution can scale as needed.""It's a very good solution if you want to protect your data across two data centers, or you have a middle man or many administrators who use these solutions for protecting their data. It's very reliable compared to other solutions that are most often not storage-based.""The solution is quite stable. We haven't experienced any bugs, glitches, or crashes. We find it to be quite reliable.""One of the most valuable features is real-time replication. The version we're using is reliable and easy to deploy.""We use Data Guard for online replication from data center, to data center for high availability. This is the most important feature.""We have found the replication feature the most useful. We use this feature the most. The ability to recover a database with less effort and the use of Oracle Data Guard Broker to administer the complete environment are also very useful features."

"It serves its intended purpose and it works well.""The most valuable feature is the ease of use.""The restore capabilities are the most valuable features.""Veeam's file monitoring capabilities are strong and consistent.""The peace of mind of the backup is very important. Incremental backups make it fast and easy to use. We can recover from any failures in case of any hardware failures or malware attacks. We can do a rollback and recover our services with a little downtime. We can rollback even in the case of unsuccessful updates.""I have found the backup call feature very good.""I have been in contact with technical support and they are very good.""I'm satisfied with tech support, because the solution is so stable that I haven't had the need to engage any of the engineers yet."

Cons
"Oracle could be improved by the ability to manage it on the cloud. This on-premises version is secure and reliable, but I'm sure that they will soon provide a cloud solution that will be even better. In one to two years, we will probably move to the cloud—we have already moved to the cloud with Microsoft Exchange, but our databases are still on-premises. I would prefer managing a cloud version of Oracle.""The pricing of the solution is quite high. They should do what they can to bring it down so that it is more reasonable for customers like us.""It is a very useful administrative IT tool. It saves on costs.""One thing that can be improved is the GUI. It would be good to have a very nice GUI to easily configure and administer, providing different presentations to the database administrator. The feature that can be included is the integration with third-party monitoring systems, that is, monitoring systems from other vendors, not only from Oracle.""Overall, there are some operational issues that need to be dealt with.""The IP implementation and maintenance are a little bit hard to manage across Oracle solutions, including Oracle Data Guard."

"In terms of what can be improved, I would say they could add automations for disaster migrations and for reverse replication. Overall, they need more automation.""There needs to be more integration with VMware and the virtual machine.""I would like to see the Veeam cloud solution and Microsoft Office 365 included all in one platform.""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.""Sometimes Veeam is not that effective when it comes to legacy environments.""The initial setup of Veeam Backup Replication is straightforward. The process took approximately two days. The setup could be streamlined to take less time.""When in a domain, the virus can easily attack the Veeam server, something which happened to us.""The only improvement I could think of is it could be cheaper—cheaper is always good. Sometimes the product is just finished. Cheaper is always nice for the customer, but the company needs to benefit so that they can keep maintaining the product. New Windows versions, etc., always take some work. At the moment, I wouldn't switch to another solution because of the money."
