Legacy Toolsets Fall Short of Modern Expectations

Veritas NetBackup backup solution may support a broad range of applications; but they result in administrator dependency, require separate products, have complex backup data portability, and a costly capacity-based licensing.

6 Reasons Why Customers Choose Veeam

Simplify Set-Up and Management

Implement and administer your backup solution with fewer professional services and no dedicated staff, thanks to an intuitive interface and customer-deployable advanced features, and benefit from the broad Veeam ecosystem.

Choose Your Storage

Break Administrator Bottlenecks

Make your data protection strategy resilient with Veeam’s user-friendly design by giving non-backup IT staff the ability to handle backup and recovery when your backup administrator is absent.

Consolidate Tools for TCO Optimization

Future-proof your organization across on-premises, edge, and cloud with a portable, instance-based license – enabling IT teams to standardize on one solution.

Detect and Remediate Ransomware

Veeam provides stronger detection with a real-time security and compliance dashboard, flagging suspicious file activity mapping to malware definitions.

Recover From Any Disaster

A unified, platform-approach to snapshot, backup, replication, testing, and orchestration unlocks confident recovery in the face of outage and ransomware.

Feature Comparison

7 Reasons to Choose Veeam Over Veritas NetBackup

Feature

Veeam Benefits

Veritas NetBackup Limitations

Any Hardware

Install Veeam on any hardware

to fit any RPO/RTO required by the business, now and in the future.

Appliance lock-in, as Veritas will always position their appliance to mask the overall complexity of installing and integrating NetBackup. Moreover, only NetBackup appliance storage shelves can be used to increase capacity.

Agentless Application Awareness

Agentless application-aware

backup and recovery and granular application recovery through an intuitive explorer for Microsoft applications.

Agent-based application for granular recovery that requires installing and maintaining agents on each VM.

Built-In Replication

Simplify disaster recovery

by creating an exact copy of a VM in its native format on a secondary virtual infrastructure with RPOs of seconds. Easily orchestrate recovery and create dynamic compliance reports to lower management overhead.

Requires another Veritas tool as Veritas NetBackup has no native VM replication capabilities, multiplying the number of installations and consoles to offer VM replication capabilities.

Instant Recovery

Instant recovery for many workloads:

VM, physical servers, NAS, databases, Cloud VM, and workstations. Cross-platform instant recovery (i.e., VMware to HyperV).

Limited instant recovery capabilities: Basic instant recovery for VMware backups only and no native cross-platform instant recovery.

Recoverability Verification

Advanced verification:

Automatically verify the recoverability of backups, snapshots, and replicas with advanced prebuilt tests, in isolated sandboxes.

Limited verification: Only basic verification that backup files are readable. No checking to see if data is usable, lacking advanced verification in an isolated lab.

Ransomware Detection

Identify a potential ransomware attack

in nearly real-time with customizable agentless monitoring tools that identify the symptoms of a ransomware attack on production VMs. Scan VMs using trusted antivirus definitions before recovering to production.

Anomaly detection is solely done through backup job metadata (size, file number, deduplication rate). Veritas supports a limited number of backup policies for scanning prior to a restore.

Break Admin Bottlenecks

Make your data protection strategy resilient

with Veeam’s user-friendly design and give non-backup IT staff the ability to handle backup and recovery when your backup administrator is absent.

NetBackup makes organizations too dependent on their NetBackup Administrator. Its inherent complexity means that only NetBackup experts can manage backup. This requires specific training to manage backup and recovery operations or rely on professional services.
