Switch to Veeam! Contact us for a quote today!
Veeam® has a steady stream of new customers coming from the ranks of former Dell EMC users. Why? The 24.7.365 Availability today’s businesses require with the ability to restore any IT service running in the hybrid cloud within seconds and minutes is not delivered by Dell EMC.
Check out the top 7 reasons NOT to renew Dell EMC and switch to Veeam today!
Intelligent Data Management vs. Legacy Backup
The modern, Hyper-Available enterprise demands a specifically designed solution that can protect both traditional and cutting-edge environments in an integrated manner. Switching to the Veeam Hyper-Availability Platform enables you to take a new approach to data management to ensure your data is always protected no matter where it resides — with complete protection of virtual, physical, and cloud-based workloads.
The Veeam Hyper-Availability Platform enables you to protect your entire environment, including traditional physical servers and workstations, as well as modern virtual, hyper-converged, SaaS, and public cloud workloads. Veeam’s complete Intelligent Data Management solution enables you to adopt modern platforms to drive strategic IT initiatives with the confidence that your data will remain available.
Dell EMC does not offer the level of Hyper-Availability that Veeam provides for the modern multi-cloud enterprise. Dell EMC’s data protection portfolio is primarily focused on legacy workloads. While Veeam continues to innovate, Dell EMC has divested from workstation protection, lacks the major capabilities that Veeam offers for hybrid cloud protection, and does not support modern platforms such as Microsoft Office 365 or Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor. Dell EMC’s lack of support for new IT platforms can cause delay in adopting those platforms — potentially leaving your business lagging behind your competitors.
Innovation vs. Status Quo
Your IT and Availability needs are constantly evolving. It is critical to invest in solutions that continuously adapt to new market conditions and technologies and progress with your requirements to maintain your edge over your competitors. Gain confidence that your investments are safe and that your data management solution will remain robust and relevant as you advance your digital transformation initiatives in the future. With its continuous innovation, Veeam’s Hyper-Availability Platform can help you on your journey towards Intelligent Data Management.
With support for the latest platforms and a proven history of being first to deliver market-defining capabilities, it is clear that Veeam is an innovation leader, offering solutions that support the modern IT platforms and Availability needs of today and those of tomorrow.
How certain are you that Dell EMC will support modern and future platforms and technologies? Are you confident that Dell EMC will implement or improve their capabilities at a pace that meets your digital transformation requirements? Dell EMC’s backup solutions still lack many of the key capabilities that Veeam invented years ago, such as SureBackup® and SureReplica, Veeam DataLabs™, Instant VM Recovery® without limitations, freedom from hardware dependencies, and many others! Dell EMC’s backup solutions were designed to protect the workloads of decades ago — and it shows.
Growth vs. Uncertain Future
Data is your organization’s most valuable asset. As such, you must entrust its Availability to a partner you can rely on. One with sustainable growth run by industry thought leaders and nearly 300,000 advocates. By partnering with Veeam, you benefit from the capabilities, insights and experiences of the Hyper-Availability experts who are changing the way data is managed.
Veeam is a privately held and profitable rocket ship on target to exceed $1 billion in yearly revenue by 2018. With a customer-centric development model, Veeam is free to focus on innovation rather than answering to shareholder and institutional investor demands. Veeam has become one of the fastest growing enterprise software companies today, and a top choice among Availability solutions as recognized by IDC and Ovum.
Dell EMC data protection’s future may not be as certain. As the company struggles to pay down massive debt, they have resorted to selling off data protection divisions like Spanning and Mozy. As data protection is only one small portion of Dell EMC’s overall portfolio, you have to ask yourself about their long-term strategy and commitment to data protection.
Simplicity vs. Complexity
IT can no longer be considered a cost center. It must provide strategic value to the organization. Veeam’s near-effortless, scalable Hyper‑Availability Platform enables you to free up time for IT staff to focus on strategic initiatives that drive revenue and growth. In fact, a recent IDC study found that two out of three Veeam customers spend less time managing their Availability infrastructure.
Veeam’s integrated approach to backup, replication, monitoring and disaster recovery is the clear choice over the myriad backup point products Dell EMC cobbled together from various acquisitions throughout the decades. This lack of integration makes deployment, management and support complex — taking valuable resources and time away from your proficient IT staff.
Powerful capabilities vs. Lack of Important Features
Data is evolving and is more important — and unpredictable — than ever. As the amount of data in the digital universe increases, the manageability of that data becomes more complex. When the tools you rely on to protect and run your enterprise are less than fully capable, you constrain innovation and risk falling behind. A true Availability solution must be more than a mere insurance policy. By leveraging the Veeam Hyper-Availability Platform’s advanced capabilities, you can keep up with the Hyper-Growth and Hyper-Sprawl of your data and your business can progress to meet the future demands of your internal and external customers.
Veeam’s capabilities are unrivaled by Dell EMC’s fragmented portfolio of various point products. These capabilities include pioneering solutions such as a true software-defined Scale-out Backup Repository™, industry-leading features such as instant, agentless recovery for tier-1 Microsoft and Oracle applications, simple application item recovery thanks to Veeam Explorers™, deep integration with leading primary storage arrays, and complete protection for Microsoft Office 365. All features that, even after decades of existence, Dell EMC continues to lack.
To further expand beyond Hyper-Availability and into areas that will enable you to fully realize the value of your data, Veeam’s innovative DataLabs offer on-demand sandboxes for test and dev, IT operations, security and forensics, and much more.
Freedom vs. Vendor Lock-In
The only thing constant in the world of enterprise IT is change. Your infrastructure and requirements are continuously evolving, and your hardware partners are leading the way with new innovations that allow you to harness the power of your data. In order to leverage the investments you have made in those partners, your data management solution must integrate seamlessly without depending on proprietary hardware or limiting migration to another solution. Ensure that your infrastructure investments are safe and that your data management solution will remain relevant with the Veeam Hyper-Availability Platform.
Veeam’s independence from server and storage hardware allows you to use the solution that best fits your budget and needs — with the ability to change hardware vendors at any time. Veeam works with your existing infrastructure — lowering TCO and decreasing complexity. Veeam integrates seamlessly with most major storage vendors to reduce the impact of protecting production workloads, enabling greater SLA attainment and lower RTOs.
Dell EMC’s data protection portfolio is designed to work solely with Dell EMC hardware. As a result, changing your backup or production infrastructure can decrease the usefulness of your data protection software. As Dell EMC’s data protection software does not integrate with other major storage vendors such as HPE, Pure Storage, IBM, Infinidat or Cisco, you are prevented from fully recognizing the potential of your infrastructure. Don’t let your legacy backup software hold back innovation.
Customer Satisfaction vs. Frustration
When investing in a data management solution, you are looking for a partner — not a product. Veeam’s customers are overwhelmingly satisfied with their decision. In fact, more than 9 out of 10 Veeam customers are willing to recommend Veeam to their peers, resulting in a Net Promoter Score (NPS) of 2.4 times the industry average. Our ease of use, product features and functionality, sales effectiveness, and technical support are just some of the reasons that Veeam leads the industry in customer satisfaction.
Former Dell EMC users tell us they are fed up with the high hardware costs, lack of capabilities, sub-par performance and poor technical support. These enterprises are switching to Veeam for the stable, multi-cloud focused, high performance that Dell EMC couldn’t deliver. According to the Storage magazine/SearchStorage.com Quality Awards, Dell EMC’s midrange backup and recovery software comes in last in initial product quality and next to last in support. It isn’t hard to see why so many organizations are making the switch.
Veeam is the global leader in Intelligent Data Management
Customers, partners, industry analysts, and media recognize Veeam as the global leader in Intelligent Data Management, offering unique business advantages due to powerful capabilities. In fact, Veeam is already the #1 Data Protection and Recovery Software Company in EMEA, surging ahead of legacy competitors including Dell EMC.
