Pros
"In Veeam backup, the most valuable feature for me is the recovery. It allows me to recover almost immediately while I continue fixing the problem of the affected machine.""I can't think of any improvements yet for Veeam because they are very good. It integrates very well with Microsoft applications. It is very easy to integrate. Micro Focus can also integrate but it's more complex. You have to know the product very well to be able to integrate. While Veeam, it's very user-friendly. You don't need to have certifications or anything to work on Veeam.""With regard to our operational requirements, Veeam is very good because it's so user-friendly.""For virtualization it's perfect.""The backup and replication capabilities are quite good.""It's not complex to replicate and back up the system.""Veeam is easy to use.""Provides lots of reporting and visualization of how much data has been transferred."

Cons
"It would be nice if it could be integrated with third-party solutions like ours. It has been supporting just Windows and virtual machines.""The stability could be better, specifically in the cloud.""Occasionally, in the course of upgrading one's virtualization platform, the backup can be ruined.""Immutability could be improved.""When in a domain, the virus can easily attack the Veeam server, something which happened to us.""Veeam currently lacks features for backing up to network-attached storage. Veeam Backup & Replication agents do not support S3 storage. Only Veeam Backup & Replication server supports S3 storage.""I like the Acronis backup solutions on the block-based part of backups or snapshots. That's a nice functionality that Veeam doesn't have.""Physical backup is always where room for improvement could be but Veeam has always stated they are not going in that direction."
