If you're on the Veeam distribution list you'll be getting some of the text below today as part of an ecard. I wanted to go ahead and blog it here as well because I think it's an important message from Veeam. Sorry if this seems to be a bit of a marketing message (but it's important to me):
"We've received numerous questions from our partners and customers on why a competing product won the Gold award in the Business Continuity & Data Protection category. We know that judges are put in a difficult position when they have to choose from almost 200 products in a short period of time. For this award, the judges cannot, and do not, install, test or evaluate the products in a lab. Instead, they mostly rely on vendor statements in their judging process. We encourage all customers to "Put Veeam in the Lab" for a head-to-head comparison with competitive products, and make the right decision for your environment. We are confident you will find out why Veeam Backup & Replication is #1 for VMware backup."
So, if you're interested in seeing why Veeam is #1, fill out the form and we'll send you some information as well as help you get started on evaluating Veeam Backup & Replication in YOUR environment so you can makeup your own mind on who the winner really is.
