Veritas vs. Veeam

It's the difference between unified data management and DIY.

Read the data sheet

Veeam = Cost + Complexity

Veeam is a collection of point solutions that are dependent on fragmented third-party suppliers and add-on software. Veritas provides a unified platform approach that seamlessly integrates proactive protection, intensive detection and industry-leading backup and recovery – all while delivering long-term savings.

Four hefty costs Veeam won't talk about.

Third-party dependencies

  • SQL server required
  • 8 out of 14 components require Windows Server license
  • 1:1 temporary cloud instance required for application-consistent cloud VM restores
Additional license fees

  • Add-on required for Veeam DR Orchestrator
  • Separate product and license required for Kubernetes
  • Separate solution for IBM AIX & Solaris
Extra infrastructure

  • Only duplicates VMware workloads, requiring more storage for other workloads
  • Dedicated storage required for immutable backup
  • Additional Windows server required for tape backup
Operational complexity

  • Separate products needed for each cloud
  • Path exclusions from anti-virus tools required for uninterrupted operations
  • No automated HA  for physical deployments
  • Multiple products and UIs needed to manage diverse workloads

Veritas vs Veeam: It's no contest.
