Flexible, easy to use with a great storage gateway feature

Pros and Cons

  • "Storage gateway feature is very flexible."
  • "Not highly customizable."

What is our primary use case?

We use Veeam ONE because we have a Windows and Linux environment, and we also have Office365. Microsoft doesn't back up the data from Office365, they only have checkpoints so the customer is required to backup that data, if that's what their composite calls for. Although we use the solution on premise, we write data off to the cloud every couple of months. We are customers of Veeam One and I'm an IT professional. 

What is most valuable?

This is a very easy to use solution and it's scalable in terms of how big your environment is. I like the Veeam storage gateway feature. As a customer, it allows you to take some of the old monthly backups and write that off to the cloud, whether it's AWS or Azure or a private cloud, it really doesn't matter. It's just really flexible to use. It also supports Windows Linux and you can even do desktop backups with it. I think the best feature is the O365 functionality, which is a separate product, but it works right alongside Veeam ONE.

What needs improvement?

This is not a highly customizable solution but there is very little that needs improvement in this product. They actually improved the UI, it has a very Window-ish interface now so that once you log into the console, all your servers are listed down the left hand side, and particularly for an auditor, you can see the policies and make changes, search for the retention, the backups, etc. As an IT professional, we want everything free so the price of the product could be reduced, but they do need to pay their developers.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for two years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Veeam ONE is more stable than the operating system it lives on. So it lives in Windows and that's more of a concern than the actual application itself. Veeam is very, very good. It's that underlying OS. If I could put that in Linux, I would do it in a heartbeat.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is one of the more impressive things about Veeam ONE. I could scale up or down as much as I want or need. If it's simply a license issue, it's just increasing your number of licenses. They're very flexible in how they initially license you. But if you just buy what you need and add on over time, it works very well and that's what we want. We want easy stuff that works and that's reliable and is supported, and doesn't cost a fortune, but if they want to lower the price, that's even better.

Our administration team uses the solution, so maybe two or three people just managing it. Once you set it up, it's automatic. You can set up emails to alert a group or a person or a team that the backups are done, and that it's fine. My entire team has access to it, and there are five of us, but we don't get into it every day. We're a small company in the medical industry, and  we had several audits a year. It was crucial that the data was being backed up and encrypted, which is another great feature of Veeam. It just uses the native encryption there, or you can run Vormetric as your encryption mechanism for the backups themselves. The solution doesn't require a backup administrator, you can use one of your Windows admins to log in and do the occasional restore or run a report. There's no need to maintain the software. 

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer service was great, they responded very quickly. There is also a lot of information available on Youtube and that can help with installation. But the support is there and if you call them they'll walk you through and solve any issue. 

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were using Veritas before this, it's their NetBackup product. I find that difficult to use, but the great thing there is it can run on a Linux server.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. When we moved to Veeam ONE, we had to install fresh, because we were not running the most current version. We just imported all of our former backups. It was drag and drop, and then setting up backup jobs is just crazy easy with Veeam ONE. Deployment took around four hours because we already had the backup jobs. If we didn't have the server built and the backup jobs it would have taken longer. We filled the server, installed Veeam ONE, imported all of our old backup data into that product and it was done. Their support was really good, we used a very skilled integrator who gave us lots of great tips. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We've been looking at other options, Rubrik is one of them. Like Veeam, it's very simple and it's just an appliance. It's like a 1U or 2U appliance. You put it in your data center's server room or whatever you have, you define a policy, and they're literally called gold, silver and bronze. When you discover the server within Rubrik, you can decide you want the gold backup which might mean full backups every night. The silver backups might do incrementals every night, fulls on the weekend, and then maybe bronze might be differentials and maybe full backups once a month, or whatever the business requires.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution. Veeam is not highly customizable, but if someone's looking for a reliable, stable backup product that you can scale and get great support on, that supports multiple OS's, I would suggest using it. It's pretty good. 

I would rate this solution an eight out of 10.

Scalable with great technical support and an easy initial setup

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is carefully designed to be easy to use - even if you're in a panic."
  • "They need to support more platforms."

What is most valuable?

The solution provides great insights. Veeam ONE is like a consolidated monitoring and reporting solution for Veeam Backup Replication, and Hyper-V and VMware environments. It basically provides a pane of glass to monitor and report on both your backup infrastructure and your virtual infrastructure if it is Hyper-V or VMware. 

What I really like about it is that usually I would deploy it before I deploy Veeam Backup Replication to get insights on the environment that can help me avoid issues during the VOT or during the implementation of Veeam Backup Replication. For example, I can get insights to see if there is any bottleneck on the production storage on which the servers are residing.  If I need to back up, I can find out if the storage has very low space and if I trigger backups with Veeam or any other situation if I come and conduct a snapshot if it will likely cause a recall production issue.

Another really amazing feature I like about Veeam ONE is not just that it helps me plan the deployment and whatnot, in general. It can help me generate reports about the virtual environment that are totally unrelated to the backup. For example, I have one customer within the POC for Veeam Backup Replication and for Veeam ONE, the Veeam Availability Suite. They are using NetBackup. And they said, "Okay, we are okay with NetBackup. We don't need Veeam Backup Replication. But, We want Veeam ONE" This is due to the fact that once I integrated Veeam ONE, I was able to provide them insights into their environment that they had no clue about. For example, how much space is being utilized in the data center, what kind of data growth they're having in the data center, any issues in the infrastructure, and if there are areas for improvement.

Veeam ONE also recommends solutions for the issues. It can let you classify your data center. It will classify your systems and then report on them accordingly. Basically, it would provide many insights and monitor services. Some decision-makers are not into the technical aspects and whatnot. They're into the numbers and where they are right now, where they want to be, the loss options for capacity planning, et cetera.

It's strictly a reporting and monitoring solution for Veeam, Hyper-V, and Veeam Backup Replication. It's a monitoring solution for virtual data centers and backup in one console. Usually, reporting solutions do not have this functionality. You will have report decisions for VMware, however, they will not monitor the backups.

The solution is carefully designed to be easy to use - even if you're in a panic.

Technical support is great.

The solution can scale. 

What needs improvement?

They need to support more platforms. Right now, they support their Veeam Backup Replication product, which means they provide monitoring and visibility reporting to the backup infrastructure and the backup portion. However, for some people, they're not using VMware. They are not using Hyper-V, or they have other workloads. For example, they have Nutanix. Veeam can monitor the backups, which is part of Veeam Backup Replication, however, it cannot monitor Nutanix itself.

They also do not monitor physical workloads, for example, physical Windows Servers and physical Linux Servers. They report their backups. They monitor their backups through Veeam Backup Replication. They don't have server monitoring and reporting. That's where there is room for improvement.

The management software for Veeam ONE is installed only on Windows.

Recently, for some reason, a client didn't have the feature "offload backups to object storage", like Azure cloud storage, and for some reason, we were unable to locate any sort of particular report for that particular backup point. Having much more extensive backup reports would be great. They have a lot of backup reports which are great, and they have the option to create backup customer reports, however, it would be great to have additional reports along the way.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using Veeam ONE also since version 9.5.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Veeam One is pretty scalable when it comes to VMware and the Hyper-V. It is scalable and has a modular architecture, just like Veeam Backup Replication. You can have the server run in one place and the client run in another. It works well.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is a tricky question. In general, if you're asking about Veeam when compared to other vendors, honestly speaking, the technical support response times are quite good. Support will vary by engineers, no matter which vendor you deal with. One day, I'll have a really bad engineer, the next I'll have an excellent one.  However, I evaluate more so based on response times, and as I've said, their response is always excellent. 

How was the initial setup?

The solution is very straightforward to set up. It's a product that's designed to be easy to use, and implementing it is no exception.

What other advice do I have?

Veeam has a suite called the Velamen Availability Suite. This Suite consists of two products; Veeam ONE and Veeam Backup Replication. Usually, we use these two products at the same time for different purposes.

I've been using the solution since version 9.5 and now it's on version 11.

I'd rate the solution at a nine out of ten.

Easy to set up with good scalability and helpful technical support

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is stable."
  • "When you have to renew the licenses you sometimes have some trouble getting rid of the old one and reassigning it to the new one. That's an aspect that could run smoother and could be better."

What is most valuable?

We like it due to the fact that we can get error messages to alert us to issues. We can get a forecast for our storage and so on. It's really good.

The initial setup is easy. 

The solution is stable. 

The product is very scalable.

Technical support is helpful and knowledgeable. They respond very fast.

What needs improvement?

You have several monitors you have to tune. You have several snapshots on the volume and so on, and this is the standard. However, for example, if you have Rezon from VMware, you have much more snapshots on the volume, and yet it's not a problem as Rezon doesn't have these issues with the huge number of snapshots. They should offer more snapshots on Veeam.

The pricing could be reduced. 

When you have to renew the licenses you sometimes have some trouble getting rid of the old one and reassigning it to the new one. That's an aspect that could run smoother and could be better.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've used the solution for the last eight years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is very stable. There are no bugs or glitches. It doesn't crash or freeze. It's reliable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution scales very well.

You just put in another license key and you can add some hosts. It's that easy.

We have five people that directly use the solution within our company.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support from Veeam is great. You don't want to have an issue, however, if you do, they can help you really fast, and they know what to do and they ask the right questions to get deep into the problem if you have something complex or difficult. They'll help you install a patch so that everything is fine. It's great.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The price always could be lower, however, compared to others, it's pretty much in line with other options on the market.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I haven't really looked into other solutions. I've compared the open-managed integration for vCenter, and that's a really cheap one - however, it's hard to install and you often have issues. I would say it's a small giveaway from Dell as an add-on to the hardware.

What other advice do I have?

We're a customer and an end-user of the solution. 

We have the Veeam plugin from Dell and Veeam ONE. Veeam ONE is in the availability suite we have ordered and we changed our hardware from Dell and for the last five years, we have the open-managed integration.

We're currently on version 11 and we updated the solution in February.

For those considering the solution, I would advise that they deactivate the alarm at first and then run it in a warning mode so that you can learn within the environment. Veeam has some limits, and these limits are often only baselines. You may have other limits as you have faster hosts or you have other storage, et cetera. If you run in warning mode, you can learn and put in the correct baselines. You can tune it and then you won't get so many alerts. Once you have tuned your environment against the Veeam baseline it's really comfortable to work with. 

I'd rate the solution at an eight out of ten.

A single solution to effectively monitor all environments

Pros and Cons

  • "The monthly reports come complete with graphs and summaries, it's really helpful."
  • "The threshold could be easier to configure."

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution on a daily basis to monitor all of our environments.

We use it for supplemental monitoring. Veeam ONE is based on our VMware. Although we receive alerts with VMware, Veeam ONE goes another step further with analysis.

With Veeam ONE, we're easily able to determine what has been impacted. For example, VMware will get an alert for an ESX host, and Veeam ONE will know exactly what VMs and what applications are impacted. It's not our primary source of monitoring, but when we have an issue, we go to Veeam ONE to figure out exactly where things are and to help us connect the dots.

What is most valuable?

The reporting features are great for our business and managers, It takes a lot of the guesswork out. The monthly reports come complete with graphs and summaries, it's really helpful.  

What needs improvement?

The threshold could be easier to configure. I would like to see more automation and integration with their own backups. Currently, you can stop and start a backup, but it would be nice if you could initiate a reinstall using Veeam ONE.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for roughly six years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We experience problems with our SQL database. Our SQL database grew quite large in size with Veeam ONE. This is an area for improvement. They should also provide more guidance regarding calculating how big the environment might grow for the SQL database. We experienced a couple of issues where the Veeam ONE server went down because the SQL database grew too much, and we had to recreate it a couple of times. We don't quite understand how the Veeam ONE database works and what causes it to grow so quickly. 

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is responsive, however, there have been times when we have had problems, but the technical support will determine it's not a Veeam issue, so they just drop it. They will only help us if the issue is directly related to Veeam. They could go a bit further and give a few suggestions, but they don't. In some cases, we have to get both VMware support and Veeam support together on one call and go through our account rep to pressure them. They'll eventually do it, but you have to force their hand.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was quite straightforward. The Installation process was completed in one day.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We got the Veeam Enterprise Suite, which comes with Veeam ONE and Enterprise Manager. I'm not exactly sure what the pricing is.

What other advice do I have?

Veeam ONE is a great product. My main advice would definitely be to do a complete overview of the setup, and accurately design the database because otherwise, it will grow out of control.

On a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of eight.

Easy implementation with good pricing and nice stability

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is quite stable."
  • "The appliance doesn't have a domain. If there was a competitor with a domain, I'd likely use them."

What is our primary use case?

We're resellers. We offer this solution to our clients, that are companies of various sizes.

What is most valuable?

The solution offers very good administrative capabilities.

The product is very simple in terms of how it is used and designed.

The implementation is pretty simple and straightforward. It's not hard to set up.

The pricing is pretty good. We find it to be pretty fair.

The solution is quite stable.

The product offers good scalability.

What needs improvement?

I haven't used the solution for long enough to really be able to consider features that may be lacking. I haven't had enough time to work with it.

The appliance doesn't have a domain. If there was a competitor with a domain, I'd likely use them.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for less than a year. It's been about six months since I started using the solution.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is very stable. It doesn't have bugs or glitches, at least, none that I've experienced. It hasn't crashed on us or frozen. I find the solution to be reliable so far.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable. If we need to expand the solution in the future, I have no doubt that we could.

We deal with companies of different sizes, and this solution can work for organizations that are both small or large.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

In previous work, I've used EMC Networker. I found the solution to be too complex and I wouldn't say that the solution worked well for me. Veeam is much more straightforward and I find its usability to be better.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup isn't complex. It's pretty straightforward.

I don't recall how long the actual deployment took. I don't think that it took very long.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The pricing is pretty fair. It's quite competitive. It's certainly not the most expensive option.

What other advice do I have?

We're resellers. We offer this solution to our clients.

I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. So far, it's worked quite well for our clients and I can't think of any places where the solution is lacking feature-wise. It's quite good and would be suitable for different-sized companies, from small to large or enterprise level.

Reliable, easy and quick to install, with good support and alerting

Pros and Cons

  • "For me, the most important feature is alerting."
  • "There is a lot of information, so maybe the dashboards could consolidate it."

What is our primary use case?

We use Veeam ONE to get a better view of our virtualized environment. To see what is happening there.

What is most valuable?

For me, the most important feature is alerting. I know when something goes wrong, I get an alert.

What needs improvement?

The user interface is quite extended, and sometimes it's difficult to find the right information. Once you know and are familiar with it, it's okay.

The user interface could be simplified. There is a lot of information, so maybe the dashboards could consolidate it.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Veeam ONE for two or three years.

I recently updated to the latest version.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It stays running, so I don't have to put a lot of time there. 

I updated recently and it keeps running.

Occasionally, I go to the dashboard to see that there are not many alerts showing. It's stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have a rather small environment so I haven't had to use this feature. 

I assume that it is scalable, but I have never tested it.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not used technical support while using Veeam ONE, but for other products from Veeam I have, and I am happy with their support. They are fast, and their response is very good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I use Office 365, Veeam Cloud Connect, and Veeam ONE in my Data Center.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup and installation were very straightforward.

It took less than an hour to deploy. 

What about the implementation team?

I completed the deployment and implemented it myself.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We have a license combined with my other Veeam licenses.

For what it does, the price is acceptable.

What other advice do I have?

I recommend using Veeam ONE. I see more positive things than negative ones.

I would rate Veeam ONE an eight out of ten.

Stable solution for IT monitoring and planning

Pros and Cons

  • "The feature that we have found most valuable is its traffic plan. The traffic plan is very good."
  • "Veeam ONE could be improved if it had a better data recovery feature."

What is our primary use case?

We use Veeam ONE to monitor availability and for VM traffic and account system management.

What is most valuable?

The feature that we have found most valuable is its traffic plan. The traffic plan is very good.

Also the software manager is very good.

What needs improvement?

To make it a better solution they could improve the business feature and the camera. 

When we have a problem, we want to use the best feature. We would like to see a better solution for when your software has crashed for a minute or you can't open your software. We would like a better solution to recover your software. 

Overall, Veeam ONE could be improved if it had a better data recovery feature.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using Veeam ONE for about three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is good, we didn't see any bugs here. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

In terms of the scalability, it is good.

We have three people using the solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have not had any contact with customer service yet.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was okay.

What about the implementation team?

I set everything up myself.

What other advice do I have?

Veeam ONE is a good solution that anyone can use.

On a scale of one to ten I would rate Veeam ONE an eight. If it was easier to use and understand and more reliable it would be a 10.

Limited integration, but it's affordable and setup is easy

What is our primary use case?

We just are using it for backup and replication. Only two people at my company are working with it now because it is only a backup area. All the other products in my environment are not integrated with the tool. 

What needs improvement?

Veeam's biggest limitation is the lack of integration. I can't use the tool because there is no integration between the tool and the environment. Honestly, we can't use it with the rest of the environment— the hardware and software and so on. It's a huge problem. We are just using it for backup monitoring. 

For how long have I used the solution?
