Reading the internal success story, I could not believe my eyes the customer referenced performance specifically, because their marketing was busy releasing "independent" test results every year, where the most current version of Veeam was totally slammed by their software! Talk marketing vs. reality.

I really wonder, what company this was?

Well, would have been very interesting to me, because in some environments, we struggle with a competitor product ;)

Suffer with what? What is the argumentation against Veeam? I'm sure we can help :-)

Ah, and you are not allowed to replace it internally? Or am I understanding wrongly?

I successfully use Veeam VBR in 3 different environments and some of my colleagues in other 3 environments, but at another location a competitor product is used and yes it's a strategic decision in this environment to use the weaker competitor product there :shock:

We can't share our customer names without customer's explicit approval to become a reference customer. And something tells me we won't get such approval this time ;)

I know that HPE is using Veeam in many projects instead of their own Data Protector. And I can fully understand this. But in environments where you have many databases and DB backup is not only backup, instead backup is also used for migrations and day to day work, I can understand why people might choose a different (legacy) product.

Hi pirx,

you know, in some situations I still use Backup Exec, just to save a limited amount of data from a partition to a backup target and restore it somewhere else, specially in P2V situations, where I don't want to use the slow P2V converters from VMware for big data partitions or in situations, where I don't want to backup a complete VM.

Well, I thought Gostev talked about one of the bigger software backup competitors, not hardware manufacturers and Data Protector as software product.
