RE: Review Request: Current version of Symantec Backup Exec
Veeam was the winner for us because of its ease of use and quick restore of VMs
RE: Question on Reinstalling VMWare and Guest VMs
You would do well to look at Enterprise Plus licenses of Veeam to get the WAN Accelerator for backup copy jobs here. I am hoping to try this out in the next 4-8 weeks since we just beefed up internet connections at 2 of our sites.
The is only in the Plus? I may be able to swing the Enterprise, but the plus not so much. This is a SMB with 3 (well will be 2) VM hosts. They like the idea of offsite backup, but $4600 not counting hardware will be pushing it. Does Veeam require maintenance to be repurchased for it? I can probably make a case if it is a one time purchase.
WAN Acceleration is only available in the Enterprise Plus edition.
Speaking about maintenance & support, as I know, 1 year is included and later you can renew your subscription, but it's not obligatory.
RE: Diving Deep: Veeam + VMware edition
I used an old laptop for my first lab. It weigh 4kg, however it's surprisingly fast enough to run my low test workloads after minor upgrades
Speaking about Veeam, at home I use a 180-day NFR license to open the full functionality (http://go.veeam.com/free-nfr-backup-management-suite.html) - it's not for production, it's only for learning purposes. I also recommend to take a look at free video trainings from Veeam University that in your case might also be helpful - http://www.veeam.com/backup-replication-university.html
