I used to think Veeam sucked, but

I used to think Veeam sucked, but when I started comparing their backup software to competitors, Veeam is okay...

The company I work for uses Veeam for backing up 2 small-mid size VM systems and Veeam (the company) has 2 things going for it:

1) Veeam backup does a reasonable job for what it says it does in a virtual environment

2) Veeam's backup products is one of the few Enterprise backup software solutions that does not charge per volume of data backed up

I truly hope that HPE doesn't/can't afford to buy Veeam. We have HP hardware and dealing with HPE (post breakup) is 10x worse than before (breakup). And that's saying something, because pre-breakup their support sucked. Once you were able to convince Support that you needed new hardware, their Service Organization took care of it within the support contract's specified time, but getting to that point takes all of one's energy (and then some).
