Switch to Veeam for the Price of your IBM Spectrum Protect Renewal!
Every day, more and more IBM Spectrum Protect customers switch to Veeam®. Why? Because Spectrum Protect does not deliver the 24.7.365 Availability today’s businesses demand with the ability to restore any IT service running in the hybrid cloud within seconds and minutes.
Check out the top seven reasons NOT to renew IBM Spectrum Protect and switch to Veeam for the price of your renewal today!
Availability vs. Legacy Backup
Veeam is a solution specifically designed for your modern, highly virtualized hybrid cloud. Check out IDC’s Research to see how Veeam customers meet their recovery time and point objective (RTPO™) SLAs 91% of the time compared to only 69% with their previous legacy provider. Veeam was built to manage the Always-On Enterprise™ of today.
Veeam enables you to meet aggressive IT service recovery SLAs that can be measured in seconds and minutes. You don’t have time for troubleshooting Spectrum Protect’s performance or tuning backups via command lines, switches and options. As a Spectrum Protect user, you have invested significant time and resources into the management of your backup environment. Regain those resources with a solution that is both simple and powerful.
Innovation vs. Status Quo
Veeam is an innovative leader with an established history of being first to deliver market-defining capabilities, support of the latest platforms and the most complete and forward-looking cloud vision in the industry. While Spectrum Protect supports a few select cloud targets, Veeam has fully embraced the cloud with more than 2,600 cloud and service providers licensed to provide services for Veeam Cloud Connect.
Spectrum Protect was created in the 1980s to protect the physical workloads of that era. Today, it lacks some of the required virtual workload protection capabilities that Veeam invented, such as Instant VM Recovery® without additional setup or limitations, automated verification for backups and replicas, Virtual Labs, 2-in-1: backup and replication™ and many others!
Growth vs. Declines
Veeam is one of the fastest growing enterprise software companies in the world. It is a privately held industry high-performer on its way to reaching $1 billion in yearly sales by 2018 with freedom to innovate. Recognized by IDC and Ovum as a top choice among Availability solutions, Veeam’s forward momentum is unrelenting.
Simplicity vs. Complexity
Veeam’s straightforward approach to licensing combined with a near-effortless scalable architecture and deployment gets you up and running in minutes. With no agents to protect virtual workloads or applications, IDC says that two out of three Veeam customers spend 35% less time managing their Availability infrastructure – freeing them up for more productive tasks.
Powerful Capabilities vs. Lack of Important Features
With industry-leading features such as instant, agentless recovery for tier-1 Microsoft applications, built-in WAN acceleration, secure end-to-end encryption, an innovative software-defined Scale-out Backup Repository™ and advanced replication tools that enable near-continuous data Availability, Veeam’s capabilities for your hybrid cloud are unrivaled.
While Spectrum Protect is at home in only the largest of environments, Veeam is an excellent choice for both departmental and enterprise deployments. Scalability enhancements in Veeam Availability Suite™ 9.5 enable Veeam to protect thousands of VMs and millions of files to ensure Availability no matter your organization’s size.
Reliability vs. Guess Work
“It Just Works” is the #1 feedback from Veeam customers. They report less downtime and fewer backup and replication failures than with legacy backup solutions. In fact, it’s the #1 reason enterprises select Veeam! Veeam’s patented automated backup and replica testing AND recovery verification for 100% of your workloads, combined with industry-leading customer support will help you sleep better at night.
IBM is a behemoth with many business units, products and dependable industry leading solutions. Spectrum Protect users, however, have been ignored. Spectrum Protect lacks integrated virtual infrastructure monitoring, automated backup testing and recovery verification and includes multiple complex components that, if misconfigured, can result in failed backups, restores and audits. According to the 2017 Veeam Availability Report, six out of seven organizations lack a high level of confidence in their ability to reliably protect/recover data within their virtual environments. How certain are you that Spectrum Protect can reliably protect your data?
Customer Satisfaction vs. Frustration
Veeam’s customers are overwhelmingly satisfied with our product features and functionality, ease of use, technical support and sales effectiveness. With a Net Promoter Score (NPS) of 73 – 2x the industry average – 9 out of 10 Veeam customers WOULD recommend Veeam to their peers.
Don’t just take our word for it: According to the Storage Magazine/SearchStorage.com Quality Awards, Veeam ranked #1 among midrange backup and recovery software in initial product quality, product features, reliability and support. In the same categories, Spectrum Protect ranked in the middle or last among its enterprise backup and recovery peers.
