Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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.""Simple and stable.""It's fairly easy to manage and set up.""The solution just works consistently. I never have issues with it.""The most valuable feature is how reliable Veeam Backup is. It has the normal expected features that allow you to ensure that everything is backed up completely.""I think that the scalability is very good. We can't compare it.""They introduced a new feature called the Immutable Repository feature, which helps protect environments from malware attacks that target backup file extensions.""The solution is very easy to deploy."

More Veeam Backup & Replication Pros »

"When you're looking at your dashboard, you can see all your active jobs. You can see exactly if they're successful or failed and you can actually drill down and see what caused the problem. The fact you can see that right away is nice.""I am able to run Vembu on Windows NAS, which is beneficial. It does install on a Windows-based NAS. You can have the server running from the location where you are storing backups. You don't need a separate server for it in this case.""The scalability is good. It can scale. Adding a new server to a foreign location is easy.""It helps me with restores. I can repeat a test multiple times: Do the test, the restore, and then test again. It saves me time because I don't have to rebuild the VMs every time.""There is an option to back up a specific folder from a specific source, not the whole virtual machine.""The compression, encryption, and deduplication features all work fine.""It has improved our business continuity.""It backs up our virtual machines with the CBT, Changed Block Tracking."

Cons
"Even though the speed has improved over the years, I think that there are some instances where it still takes a while.""Backup speed should be increased, and there should be more functionality.""I would like to see the Veeam cloud solution and Microsoft Office 365 included all in one platform.""They have an integration with MS SQL, and you have to license MS SQL. This is something they need to change. They should go for an open-source database or a free SQL because you're already buying this product, and you shouldn't have to buy another product.""Veeam is good up until 300 VMs.""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.""I would like to see better features for exporting to cloud-based repositories.""There is some complexity we have experienced when using the solution that should be simplified."

"There was one issue though with the hardware IDs. When I went to a different version of Hyper-V, the hardware IDs weren't restored and the machine got two new IDs. The preliminary unique IDs weren't restored, so I had to reactivate programs.""The system died twice and it was apparently the result of corrupted disk sectors. I tried to work with tech support to fix it, but they essentially gave up. So twice, I had to rebuild our server.""There are some limitation in Vembu that can be improved. When you take the backup from any server, the full incremental backup is limited. For example, if you run a weekly full backup and monthly backup, they cannot be run at the same time. I should not have to create a new job, but in this scenario, I am creating two jobs. The limitation is created because if I select monthly backup, then I cannot select weekly backup.""The support is a bit slow in resolving an issue. It takes a long time to recover.""One thing that I reported with the backups: When there are accentuated characters in a path, then we can't restore documents into a folder. There is a bug with the restoration and restoring files with accentuated characters in the path. Hopefully, they have repaired this because otherwise we will restore files and find out that they are not there.""There were issues with the implementation because of incompatibilities between the tool implementation and our current VMware installation. So, it was an implementation issue that doesn't allow me to use it for VMware backup in the manner in which we would want to use it. That wasn't clear from the evaluation stage nor was it clear from the first utilization of it because it worked in the environment that it was being evaluated in. Based on that, we went ahead and made the purchase of the full implementation. At that point, it became clear that there would be limitations in that implementation that could not be overcome without doing upgrades to the production environment.""What I would love to see on the dashboard are graphs, per backup job. I want to see the month and the days in it... If a job has failed, when did it actually fail and what percentage of it failed? Did it fail completely, 75 percent or 100 percent or did it only fail partially?""Vembu BDR currently supports backups of O365, although it does not currently have an email archiving function to the O365 backups."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is more expensive than other solutions.""I don't know what the costs are for sure, but I think that it's on a yearly basis.""The price of Veeam Backup and Replication is expensive.""We spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on Veeam each year, although it is not expensive for what we get.""This solution requires a license and the organizations I was involved in were using an enterprise license.""It's expensive and costs about 4000 a year.""I understand from management that the DR component is too expensive.""It is always nice to get products cheaper. Technically, it saves you a lot of money. If you wanted to buy the same functionality out of vSphere, you would spend thousands to essentially get the same functionality."

"The pricing of Vembu is one of its strong points. The license is not as much as other competitors, and it has a variety of licensing options: subscription-based, perpetual licenses, and a virtual machine license. You can design whatever license that you adopted to your environment, and that can support your environment without extra cost, providing more than you need. So, you can design a license that fits your environment and budget. The pricing is very good and can be used when the budget is tight.""I've purchased and been licensed for one aspect of it, which is my preferred method, but the pricing and licensing will not work for the short-term and I can't draw back.""For our company, the current price of Vembu against Veeam is a few times cheaper. In our infrastructure, if we picked Veeam, we would have to pay about $20,000 per year. Now, we are currently paying about $2,000 per year for Vembu. You can do the math. The price is great.""This solution helped us deliver an enterprise level data protection solution and reduced our budget by 50 percent. We spent $3,000 on Vembu's licenses where other solutions were almost double.""Previously, we used Veeam Backup, but we replaced it with Vembu. We switched because Vembu is more cost-effective. So, price was a factor.""At the moment, I am doing Vembu for one host. My costs are about $25 USD a month for a single host up to 100 VMs.""It's more affordable than Veeam, so smaller companies can afford to have a solution like this in place, which is very nice.""We chose this solution because it was cheaper and easier to use than Veeam and other solutions of this type."
