Dell EMC is a legacy data protection vendor suitable for traditional client‑server infrastructures. It may offer some benefits, such as a single vendor for both software and hardware or broad support for physical systems. But it does not meet the needs of modern IT.

Here are 5 Reasons to Choose Veeam® over Dell EMC


Veeam benefits

Dell EMC limitations

Infrastructure freedom
Complete hardware flexibility
Choose the infrastructure that best fits your needs, thanks to Veeam’s broad support for nearly any hardware platform.
Vendor lock‑in
By requiring proprietary hardware to deliver essential capabilities, Dell EMC restricts choice and stifles innovation.
Integrated & intuitive
Spend less time administering backup thanks to Veeam’s integrated solution and proven deployment and intuitive management.
Numerous point products
Due to numerous independent point products, managing Dell EMC solutions can take 2x the time and resources of Veeam.
Lower overall costs
With less administrative overhead, hardware agnosticism and advanced capabilities offered at no extra cost, Veeam is the budget‑friendly solution.
Significant overhead
High setup, management and appliance costs, as well as add‑on fees for key features, create an unnecessarily high TCO.
Powerful functionality
Powerful capabilities
Get advanced features, like verified recovery, DR orchestration and advanced data reuse with a built‑in On‑Demand Sandbox™.
Lack of functionality
Even across a portfolio of numerous products, Dell EMC lacks capabilities that Veeam introduced years ago.
Investment safety
Modern and always evolving
Ensure a safe investment with Veeam’s consistent track record of fast‑to‑market support for new platforms, like Office 365, and emerging technologies.
Lack of innovation
Due to slow innovation, Dell EMC is unlikely to offer the capabilities you will need to protect your data as you adopt new technologies.

For these reasons and more, Veeam is the choice for more than 400K+ organizations around the world today.
