I have been using Veeam for quite some time, and it still is a very solid product, it will have some competition with VMware Backup, but I am sure VMware can’t do all that Veeam is able to do. I like the fact that you can restore single mailbox items from an Exchange Backup with no sandbox, also Veeam now supports direct access to SAN (I think only for HP Lefthand SAN right now, but I could be wrong. Here are some of the details!
Veeam® Backup & Replication™ 6.5 represents the next wave of Veeam innovation, and delivers even more groundbreaking capabilities, including:
- Free e-discovery and item recovery for Microsoft Exchange
- Easy VM recovery from SAN snapshots
- Advanced monitoring, reporting and capacity planning (requires Veeam Management Suite 6.5)
- New hypervisor support: VMware vSphere 5.1 and Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V
