Why legacy backup solutions belong to the past

The world is becoming increasingly digital and technology is designed to make our lives easier. To meet the most demanding needs of their customers and users, firms must provide unconditioned access to their services. For many of these organizations, this is at best a challenge and at worst a survival matter.

Many organizations are still anchored in the past with their infrastructures reliant on legacy backup solutions and they just can’t do the job. It is the responsibility of the CIO and IT executives to navigate their organizations through digital transformation. But why is Availability so important?

Availability is more than just backup. It provides 24.7.365 access to an increasing amount of data from any device, anywhere. Organizations invest in virtualization, sophisticated storage technologies and the cloud, but is it enough? A modern data center must be accompanied by an Availability solution that can meet its SLAs and achieve an uncompromising level of data protection.

Here at Veeam, we INNOVATE to create an Availability solution that enables digital transformation for more than 230,000 customers worldwide. Veeam defined the Availability market and our customers simply cannot justify continued investments in legacy backup products. In the soon-to-be-released 2017 Veeam Availability Report, Veeam customers state they meet their recovery time and point objective (RTPO) SLAs 90% of time, compared to only 69% with their previous legacy solution.

Legacy backup solutions were relevant decades ago during the client-server era but failed to adapt to the requirements of today's Always-On Enterprise. Veeam continues to lead the pack with a solution designed for the modern, highly virtualized hybrid cloud world. Modern organizations are looking for something else. Something better. They demand an Availability solution that decreases TCO, increases ROI and lives up to expectations.

Here are 7 reasons not to renew legacy backup and switch to Veeam.
