Compare Veritas to Veeam

360 Data Management solves the problems point solutions create

Get the Facts Now

More than just backup, Veritas is 360 Data Management

Veritas empowers its customers to build off their existing investment in NetBackup - not just providing scalable protection for hybrid environments – but, also solving challenges around copy data sprawl, information insight, and availability of business data. Veeam is just backup & recovery.

NetBackup scales with your business

Enterprise customers deploying Veeam may not be able to meet their recovery point & recovery time objectives. In a recent 3rd party benchmark study, in vStorage API-based backup tests, Veeam was 83% slower at 100, 86% slower at 200 and 80% slower at 400 VMs. NetBackup can scale from hundreds to thousands of VMs with proven better performance and the ability to meet the most demanding enterprise RPO and RTO SLAs.

Flexible deployment models to fit your needs

As a software only solution - Veeam customers face 5 key challenges: 1) hardware acquisition 2) installation & configuration 3) administration 4) patches & upgrades, and 5) support. NetBackup is available in both software and highly scalable hardware configurations, offering customers flexible deployment models, fast deployment, time to value and scalability. NetBackup integrated appliances are an all-in-one, purpose- built, converged hardware/software and are ideal for customers wanting to simplify IT tasks, increase productivity, scale performance, reduce storage footprint, and minimize costs.

Easily backup to the cloud

According to a recent study on the State of the Hybrid Cloud , with 23% of enterprises using four or more cloud infrastructure platforms today, you may be surprised to learn that Veeam does not have direct integration with the public cloud. NetBackup offers integration with over 40 major cloud providers including Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform and more.

Up to 50:1 dedupe reduction ratio

Veeam’s deduplication technology is on a per-job basis that can consume more back-end storage. In many cases, Veeam recommends a deduplication appliance, which can add additional cost and complexity. NetBackup has true global, block-level, end-to-end deduplication across virtual, physical and cloud, requiring less back-end storage.

You can't protect what you can't see

With more than 30% of customer data listed as redundant, obsolete or trivial. Visibility into your data is key. As a unified data protection solution across all workloads, NetBackup goes beyond just backup and recovery and has detailed knowledge about your data. That data comes to life via Veritas Information Map’s data visualization —allowing you to quickly identify areas of risk, value or waste. Point backup & recovery solutions like Veeam are unsuited to support the next generation requirements for advanced information insight and data management.

True, always-on real-time availability 24/7/365

Veeam makes lofty claims pertaining to “availability”, but they appear to only do backup & recovery. Predictably managing business uptime is a major issue facing organizations today. While disaster recovery is a solved problem, customers lack the predictability and assurance of meeting defined RPO and RTO service level objectives. Veritas Resiliency Platform, featuring a built-in VMware certified data mover, helps organizations maintain business uptime while delivering predictable resiliency operations for disaster recovery, data protection, recovery testing and workload migration across physical, virtual, and cloud environments. With Veeam, the “always-on” enterprise is anything but.
