Switch to Veeam for the Price of your Veritas NetBackup Renewal!
Each day, Veritas NetBackup customers switch to Veeam® one after another. Why? Because NetBackup is not able to give the 24.7.365 Availability today’s enterprises ask for with the ability to restore any IT service running in the hybrid cloud within seconds and minutes.
To enable digital transformation, business continuity and increased agility, you need to replace legacy backup. Veeam does this by dramatically improving your ability to reach service level agreements (SLAs), increasing reliability and reducing operational complexity, resulting in measurable ROI and lower TCO.
Join the many thousands of others by switching to Veeam and getting THE Availability solution designed from the ground up entirely for laptops, desktops, virtual machines and physical servers — anywhere!
Check out the top 7 reasons NOT to renew Veritas NetBackup and switch to Veeam for the price of your renewal today!
Availability vs. Legacy Backup
Veeam is a specially designed solution for the modern world of highly virtualized hybrid cloud solutions. It lets you meet aggressive IT service recovery SLAs that can be measured in seconds and minutes as opposed to hours often required by NetBackup. In fact, Veritas themselves has referred to their own deduplicated restore performance as "unacceptably slow".
Read the IDC 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 data center of today.
Innovation vs. 30-Year Old Technology
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 NetBackup supports less than 20 cloud storage targets, Veeam has embraced the cloud with more than 2,600 service and cloud providers licensed to provide services for Veeam Cloud Connect.
NetBackup was designed decades ago and it still lacks some of the key capabilities that Veeam invented, such as Instant VM Recovery® without limitations, SureBackup® and SureReplica, Virtual Labs, 2-in-1: backup and replication™ and many others!
Growth vs. Uncertain Future
Veeam is one of the fastest growing enterprise software companies in the world. It is a privately held starship rising and on target to reach $1 billion in yearly sales by 2018 with freedom to innovate. Recognized by IDC and Ovum as a top choice among data protection and Availability solutions, Veeam’s forward momentum starkly contrasts the lagging innovation, declining revenue and declining market share of Veritas. Veritas is owned by a private equity firm which must return $7.4 billion to lending banks. Its primary goal will likely be to reduce costs and generate cash for lenders.
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, two out of three Veeam customers spend 35% less time managing their Availability infrastructure which frees them up for more productive tasks.
Compared to NetBackup’s multiple licensing scenarios, appliances that cause hardware lock-in, myriad agents and separately licensed products, the choice is clear.
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 Scale-out Backup Repository™ and advanced replication tools that enable near-continuous data Availability, Veeam’s capabilities are more than a match for Veritas.
Scalability enhancements in Veeam Availability Suite™ 9.5 provide the means to protect thousands of VMs and millions of files to ensure Availability no matter your company’s size.
Reliability vs. Guess Work
“It Just Works” – that is the #1 feedback from Veeam customers. Veeam customers report substantially less downtime and fewer backup and replication failures than with legacy backup solutions. In fact, it’s the #1 reason enterprises select Veeam! Patented automated backup and replica testing AND recovery verification for 100% of your workloads, combined with Veeam’s industry-leading customer support, will help you sleep better at night.
NetBackup, on the other hand, has no infrastructure monitoring, no automated backup testing or recovery verification and multiple complex components which, if one fails, leaves you vulnerable to potential data corruption and restore failures.
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 2x the industry average, 9 out of 10 Veeam customers WOULD recommend Veeam to their peers.
Former NetBackup users tell us they switched to Veeam for the stable, hybrid cloud-focused and fast, verified recoverability that NetBackup couldn’t deliver.
