NetBackup vs Veeam:

Five reasons to switch to Veeam Availability Suite

1. Availability beats legacy backup

Veritas NetBackup came into existence in the 1980's via an engagement with an automotive manufacturer. It was built to support the systems and applications of the past—not the agile, modern data centers of the present. Don't suffer through more downtime, switch to an Availability solution that was built for virtualization from day one.

2. Award winning support

Our customers recently expressed their elation with Veeam support by awarding our US-based North American support team with a 98.9% customer satisfaction rating and our EMEA team a 97.3% rating. Veeam stands by our products and we won’t forget you after the sale. You can rest assured that we will be there if you need us.

3. High-speed recovery

Unrestricted agentless file level recovery, agentless granular recovery for tier-1 Microsoft applications, and intuitive Instant VM Recovery®. These are just some of the things Veeam offers and Veritas NetBackup doesn't.

4. Data loss avoidance

Veritas NetBackup was designed at a time where RPOs and RTOs were measured in days, not minutes. Availability means an RTPO™ of < 15 minutes to avoid data loss altogether. Veeam has offered 2-in-1 backup and replication™ since v1.

5. Confidence in your future

Symantec has sold off its Veritas product line to a private equity firm—creating grave uncertainty in the future of their backup products. Switch to Veeam and gain confidence not only in the future of your data, but in the future of your Availability vendor.
