We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The backup retention was pretty good. Being able to archive users who had been backed up, is a good functionality. Even if they've been deactivated it'll keep the backups and keep them protected."

"The product offers good stability.""This covers the areas of backing up Office 365 that Microsoft does not include in its standard routine.""The solution is easy to use and stable and can be made to fit one's needs.""Veeam Backup gives you the option to backup your data from the cloud to on-premises.""The solution provides good backup services for Microsoft 365.""The most valuable feature is that we don't need different agents to back up our files from different accounts.""Technical support in Veeam is good.""We are able to store it on various cloud providers such as Amazon S3, Rocket, Azure, and IBM Cloud. It can also do on-premise integration, and we are able to use storage from on-premise. We are also able to recover data. It is a really good and intuitive solution. Veeam has developed a fantastic product. I've never seen anything that I don't like about Veeam. It looks like a very complete solution. It is really mature, simple to use, and quite interrogative. It also has APIs for writing scripts."

Cons
"StorageCraft wasn't getting full backup coverage. It was backing up around one to 2% of the points. It was not a reliable platform and it wasn't giving any sort of alerts that things were not working."

"The documentation for the installation is good. However, if you are new to the environment the installation could be difficult. The first time we did it it took approximately four days.""When you add a new site for backup, it gives you a notice that there is a new site, but the way you select that and configure that could be slightly better. It works, but it is not always very clear. For example, for the URL, you need to hover over the title or the name of the site. You should see it immediately on the screen. It should have a better user interface for selecting what you want to back up so that you get a more clear overview of the sites that are there and the ones that you want to combine in a backup. Its user interface should be more user-friendly. It has a lot of scrolling and doesn't give you a complete overview when needed. That's the main thing why it is not very user-friendly. It should have a better user interface.""The solution could offer better reporting.""They don't have native integration with deduplication of storage.""While I don't have a use case in mind, it would be great if they could integrate more automation capabilities into the solution.""The solution should have backup integration features, not just concerning mail but also when it comes to such solutions as SharePoint.""The installation could always be a little bit easier. You do need to be a bit technical.""The license pricing can be reduced."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "The pricing model makes this solution more expensive than it needs to be."
  • "This is not a stand-alone product and requires a standard Veeam license for your organization in addition to the cost of the solution."
  • "We looked at a few cloud options. When we did the comparison, we found it to be a cost-effective solution, and it included everything."
  • "The licensing price is quite high. It's expensive."
  • "We decided on Altaro because, from the point of view of the total cost, Altaro looks cheaper than Veeam. Veeam has a lot of costs that are not clear when you start it, which makes it less flexible than Altaro, but only after half a year, you can be really sure that you made a good decision."
  • "Its price is a little bit high, but it is a fantastic solution. It is more expensive than NetApp."
  • "I have a per-user license for the number of users and the mailboxes that I have."
