  • “It's rare that I find a software suite that I absolutely love. Veeam is one of those few products that seems like it's going to be too good to be true but does exactly what it promises to do. We run multiple VMware servers with around two dozen virtual machines spread across them. Veeam gives the flexibility to ensure that all of our virtual machines are backed up as often as we deem necessary with the ability to test within a sandbox. Backup software doesn't need to be complicated, it just needs to work and give you peace of mind. For virtualized environments, Veeam is hands down the best product I've used.” – IT Manager, Manufacturing https://www.gartner.com/reviews/review/view/538484
  • Reliable product that delivers what is promised in the agreed time window. Backup of virtual environment made simple, easy to manage and confident at the time of restoration. Saved considerable cost investing in backup solution from different aspects, time to recover/restore, simplicity in setting it up, easy on boarding of in house expertise and hassle free daily maintenance and proactive reporting. The solution works smoothly with the virtual layer delivering one of if not the best in class lightweight and reliable backup and recovery enterprise level solution.- Head of Information Technology, Education and https://www.gartner.com/reviews/review/view/595046
  • My overall experience with Veeam has been universally positive. The product functions as advertised and they have good (and growing) partnerships with major technology players.
