Veeam vs. Veritas NetBackup

5 important things to consider

Veritas is a historic data protection vendor, adequate for protecting a traditional client‑server infrastructure. Veritas provides some benefits, such as offering an all‑in‑one backup appliance and support for a broad range of workloads and devices but comes with significant drawbacks.

Check out the pros and cons for Veritas NetBackup compared to Veeam®.

Veritas NetBackup limitations
Veeam benefits
Proprietary hardware
To realize the full benefits of NetBackup, appliances are required which increases costs and complexity and limits flexibility.
Total flexibility
Choose the infrastructure that best fits your business needs and leverage your existing hardware investments.
Disconnected architecture
With complex user interfaces and point products, NetBackup requires significant time for everyday management.
Intuitive management
Spend up to 50% less time managing backups. Without point products to manage, Veeam minimizes your workload.
Missing key features
Without capabilities like 2‑in‑1 Backup & Replication™ or recovery verification, NetBackup has fallen behind the curve.
One solution for ALL workloads
Consolidate multiple solutions into a single platform providing backup, recovery, cloud mobility, analytics, orchestration and more.
Lack of flexibility at scale
Veritas appliances increase costs and complexity and do not independently scale, leading to unnecessary costs.
Distributed scalability
Only buy what you need and scale backup infrastructure infinitely, with no additional licensing costs.
Penalties for growth
Capacity‑based licensing from Veritas penalizes you for data growth. Licensing costs increase each year, breaking your budget.
Limitless potential
Unlock limitless savings with Veeam Universal License. As your data grows, the amount of Veeam licenses stays the same.

For these reasons and more, Veeam is the choice for more than 375K+ organizations around the world today.
