"It has a lot of stock reports. I believe over 300 canned reports, which for the most part meet a lot of generic needs."
"It generates very detailed reports, which makes things easier when it comes to IT auditing."
"The solution is easy to use, flexible and has a lot of out-of-the-box functionality. You can configure the dashboards or you can use a script. However, to fully utilize its capabilities you will want to use a lot of scripts which you will need advanced training. The reports can be customized for many things, such as chargeback billing."
"The initial setup was very easy."
"The initial setup is very easy."
"While I do not recall whether the latest version is 10.0 or 11.0 I do know that it allows one to make a back up repository that is very scalable and simple."
"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."
"I have been in contact with technical support and they are very good."
"This solution is very flexible and user-friendly — it's very good. It's very good with our virtual and physical infrastructure."
"The most valuable feature is the continuous backup."
"The backup and replication capabilities are quite good."
"There is a steep learning curve to use the interface and to create new reports, this could be made easier. If the solution could provide more drag and drop functionality to build more advanced reports that would be very helpful."
"It's a bit difficult for first-time users."
"They should empower their customers with the ability to upgrade this solution as long as it's in the same major release."
"Even though the speed has improved over the years, I think that there are some instances where it still takes a while."
"The licensing models, from a reseller's perspective, could be better."
"I have a problem with the VM. When we started doing a backup, it takes a snapshot for our virtual machines, but when we try it two or three times, in some cases, our virtual machines go to a consolidated state. I don't know why this problem happens. But I still think Veeam is a top-ranking solution."
"This is an expensive solution."
"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."
"The web interface could be more visual."
"The data duplication should be improved."
"The price can be a bit expensive."
