We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Its ability to restore at the item level is very valuable. It is very strong at that. In the past, we had to restore a lot of data only for a couple of items. We can now restore an item as well as an email, which is good for productivity.""This covers the areas of backing up Office 365 that Microsoft does not include in its standard routine.""It has got all the features. You can restore a mailbox based on an email or a calendar or based on all the emails. A user can also get access to restore the mailbox.""The most valuable feature is that we don't need different agents to back up our files from different accounts.""The solution provides good backup services for Microsoft 365.""I want an additional copy of my data in the Office cloud and it works.""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.""The most valuable aspect of Veeam is its stability."

"The integration of Veeam Backup Replication is very good.""No problems with stability.""Veeam Backup & Replication is a great alternative to what is out there. Some of the backups just allow an agent backup to the cloud. You can back up a thousand different ways, but this is a great way to keep a customer and a company in compliance in that they've got their data secure onsite and offsite. The data being transferred to the NAS at the customer's location and also the data being sent to the cloud is encrypted in transit and it's also encrypted at rest so that nobody is going to be able to hack into that. No one will have the keys to do that.""Its stability and scalability were the main reasons for going for this solution. It is highly scalable, and its stability is also powerful. It has a friendly interface, and its monitoring and performance are the best in the market.""It's not complex to replicate and back up the system.""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.""The solution just works consistently. I never have issues with it.""Veeam is highly scalable. In one scenario, we started with 2,000 users and scaled up to 24,000."

Cons
"When you are working in the Cloud security is very important.""The pricing model is unnecessarily confusing and could be simplified.""The solution should have backup integration features, not just concerning mail but also when it comes to such solutions as SharePoint.""They don't have native integration with deduplication of storage.""The installation could always be a little bit easier. You do need to be a bit technical.""Its price could be improved.""They can provide a dashboard for sizing. This feature might get included in the next release.""This solution does provide the option to choose a different target of storage."

More Veeam Backup for Office 365 Cons →

"Additional executive summary reports for the entire infrastructure would be a nice to have.""In the future, I would like to see better support for direct backup to tape.""The Veeam portal should be better integrated with all the parts of the new release. But there's always a workaround to replicate the new solution. I'd like to have better integration with other solutions like SAP.""There is always some room for improvement, especially with some of the different technologies such as DB2. Commvault has a DB2 agent, but Veeam still doesn't have it. We have to use the universal one for it.""We're using both Backup and Replication, Veeam Cloud Connect, and Veeam Office 365. What I am missing is a good graphical user interface between these three products.""We struggled to stabilize the application. We had an incident which resulted in a loss of data and have terminated this solution due to lack of support from the Veeam team.""The DR component should be part of the comprehensive package, not separate.""It needs to offer an automatic check for backups."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "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."
  • "There is a license required for this solution and we pay annually."

  • "Veeam is more reasonably priced than some competing products."
  • "My understanding is that it is a fairly small price point."
  • "Its software solution has a fee."
  • "It is more expensive than other solutions."
  • "If you tell Veeam that you're competing with, for example, NetBackup or Backup Exec, or Dell or Micro Focus then they may lower the price. They are very competitive."
  • "I don't know what the costs are for sure, but I think that it's on a yearly basis."
  • "Its price is reasonable for a big company or a big client. It is not too much. It is cheaper than VMware."
