Tired of Backup Exec’s legacy features?

Veritas Backup Exec is a legacy data protection vendor suitable for traditional SMB client-server infrastructures. It may provide some benefits, such as support for a broad range of workloads and devices. But does it offer all the capabilities that you need to protect your modern environment?

Top reasons to choose Veeam Backup Essentials over Veritas.


Veeam benefits

Veritas Backup Exec limitations

Easy backup and restore
Spend up to 50% less time managing backups. With no agents to deploy and manage for VM protection, Veeam reduces your workload.
Agents galore
Backup Exec requires agents for backup and recovery, lengthening deployments, and increasing management overhead.
Powerful functionality
Modern, powerful features
Adapt Veeam to your needs with backup, recovery, data reusability and more in a single, easy to use platform.
Legacy features
Lacking key features like backup from storage snapshots, Backup Exec’s feature set does not take advantage of modern platforms.
Grows with your business
Scale your backup solution to meet growing business requirements with no additional licensing for added capacity.
Lacks Scale
Backup Exec’s performance decreases as data grows, causing management headaches and resulting in missed SLAs.
Investment safety
A trusted solution
Ensure your backup vendor is as dedicated to protecting your data as you are. Veeam’s reviews speak for themselves.
Uncertain future
Veritas’ focus on Backup Exec has shifted to NetBackup resulting in few new capabilities or enhancements.

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