“It was clear we needed a new
solution that would guarantee the
availability we needed. Our aim was
to find a solution that just worked,
and which could be relied upon to do
its job effectively.”
Marcus Juzwiak
Information System Engineer
Garantum Fondkommission
“Veeam offered support for Hyper-V
much earlier than other vendors,
which allowed us to back up our
Hyper-V VMs shortly after we installed
a beta version of Windows Server
Cameron McBride
Manager, Systems and Software
Western Health
”We had two options: we could
spend more than half the workweek
managing and worrying about VM
backup and replication, or we could put
Veeam in place and forget about it.”
