Veritas is a legacy 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.

Here are 5 reasons to choose Veeam® over Veritas NetBackup


Veeam benefits

Veritas NetBackup limitations

Total flexibility
Choose the infrastructure that best fits your business needs. Leverage your existing hardware investments or choose from a Veeam partner.
Proprietary hardware
To realize the full benefits of NetBackup, appliances are required – increasing costs and complexity while limiting flexibility.
Intuitive management
Spend up to 50% less time managing backups. Without point products to manage, Veeam reduces your workload.
Disconnected architecture
With complex user interfaces and point products, NetBackup can require significant time for day‑to‑day management.
Powerful functionality
Modern, powerful features
Consolidate multiple solutions into a single platform providing backup, recovery, DR, data reusability and more.
Missing key features
Without capabilities like VM replication or recovery verification, NetBackup has fallen behind the curve – limiting its value.
Distributed scalability
Only buy what you need and scale backup infrastructure infinitely, with no additional licensing costs for data growth.
Lack of flexibility at scale
Veritas appliances increase costs and complexity and do not independently scale, leading to unnecessary costs.
Limitless potential
Unlock limitless savings with Veeam Universal License (VUL). Even as your data grows, the amount of Veeam licensing stays the same.
Penalties for growth
Capacity‑based licensing from Veritas penalizes you as your data grows. Licensing costs increase each year, breaking your budget.

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