Veeam Backup & Replication Primary Use Case

TM
Account Manager at a tech services company with 51-200 employees

Our primary use case with Veeam Backup & Replication is to backup critical data. We would recommend that a person put on a Veeam backup service so that in a disaster recovery scenario you set what has to come back up first because that is going to be the critical information that has to go back up as quickly as possible. You can put anything on critical servers, but we recommend that you use it for critical data that it is going to be restored within a four hour timeframe.

Veeam Backup & Replication can be deployed as agent-based or you can set it up to replicate back to a NAS, some sort of device onsite, so that a copy of your data goes to the device onsite and another copy goes to a data center for a backup as well. Then, if that server crashes, the device that's at the location has the latest copy of the good data from where they get the backup.

Veeam Backup & Replication delivers dependable availability across all cloud, virtual and physical workloads with a simple, flexible and reliable solution. You can protect your data no matter the location or workload type with powerful backup and instant recovery options.

We are a system-integrator company and have a platinum sales-partnership with Veeam Software in Turkey. And also we are giving professional services to our customers on behalf of Veeam within the framework of the global VASP program. We take advantage of this experience to integrate many different environments as an output.

Regarding to this exprerince I can say these ;  Some of our customers use Veeam Cloud Connect platforms for off-site backups and VM replicas, in order to copy and handle disaster recovery scenarios. Some of them are just using the backup infrastructure in their on-premise platforms. And some customers have multiple sites by their own.  They are doing disaster scenarios on their own sites and they are not using any other cloud infrastructure. If you have a Veeam product, there are many scenarios you can consider.

The solution is so good to use. It allows for proof of concept. One can run a test on the database, move backups from one server to another, do file restoration or make use of portal storage features. 

Backup and storage is very fast, reducing what would otherwise take hours to minutes. Veeam was designed for virtual environments. The first year it was involved in supporting VMware virtual environments.

We use it at our site for our nightly backup and for disaster recovery (DR) replication to another site. So, we use WAN Accelerator. We use scheduled copies to another datastore, and then, of course, we do it for our backups for SQL servers and other servers.

Director at a printing company with 11-50 employees

I'm actually a consultant, so I deploy it for my customers — quite a few of them.

Our clients are partly interested in backing up their application servers and their environment — that's the first priority. Some of our clients have gone a bit further into remote disaster recovery, off-site disaster recovery. They replicate to another location for those purposes.

Our clients are small to medium-sized companies.

MA
Technical Presales Consultant/ Engineer at a wholesaler/distributor with 10,001+ employees

I have a customer who used to use Veritas NetBackup, which is also a very well-respected enterprise backup solution. The company's compliance requirement to have daily backups meant that he had to fix issues even if that meant staying after work hours.

Veritas was doing a great job backing up his environment, but every weekend, he would receive a notification that a backup failed. He would then have to go back to the office and contact Veritas support. They would fix the issue, but he wanted something that will just work and that could be left alone.

So we did a proof of concept for Veeam and that's what happened. It was really easy to set up and configure, and he never received any notifications that required him to return to the office and fix an issue.

The solution is primarily used for backups. 

We're a managed service provider and we use it to back up our own stuff. We use it to backup all of our client's data. Obviously, depending on the client, they're very much siloed. We've got multiple backups and multiple instances of Veeam deployed in their particular partitioned-off networks. Those are daily backups. We do full backups and we do incremental backups. Exactly what that schedule depends on the client itself, however, on a daily or a weekly basis, we have the typical things that end users do where they delete files and we have to go recover them.

Consultant at a integrator with 5,001-10,000 employees

We primarily use Veeam Backup and Replication in small installations and projects with Windows as well as standard Linux systems. We also use it as a backup solution for cloud products such as Office 365. In total, we have around 14 Veeam users, which covers about 100-200 devices using it.

Regarding the technical implementation, we have three primary technical personnel that maintain our use of Veeam. Because our company is multinational, with data centers located in Nordic countries such as Finland, we often have conferences outside our country and we share the services used to configure and perform the maintenance of our systems when needed. In this case, I can't point to an exact number of all the technical staff involved with Veeam throughout the greater organization.

Ideally, when it comes to backups, we prefer to use only one solution rather than two. However, we also have customers in the healthcare sector in Portugal who are using legacy UNIX and Oracle systems, and Veeam does not have agents for these operating systems. So when these customers want to create disaster recovery plans, we like to use Commvault to set up replication and create backup copies of the data code.
