Technically, Veeam is best for hyper-v & VMWare replications, snapshots, HA failover, also support for file system backups inside VMs., support for tape library & FC too.
But Veritas Netbackup is a complete & comprehensive enterprise-level software. It is best for file system backups, databases, VM backups, bare metal recovery, support for tape library & FC. The backup schedule policy is better than Veeam.
In comparison, Veritas Netbackup is more reliable & flexible.
Veeam is best for Hyper-V & VMWare replications snapshots, HA failover.
Live backup is available in VMWare only.
Veritas - it specializes in storage management software including the first commercial journaling file system, VxFS, VxVM, VCS, the personal/small office backup software Backup Exec and the enterprise backup software, NetBackup.
Veritas Record Now was an early CD recording software.
If you need more app and DB backups integration, it's better to use Veritas.
For VMS with MS apps only, I choose Veeam. Veeam is a great software for virtual environments but needs to make better integration with larger apps and DB cause of the consistency you need to guarantee.
We use Backup Exec (2010) and it is very slow.
I understand they've improved since then and, thus, I would like to see if anyone can share a speed comparison for the Backup Exec 2021's version vs Veeam Backup & Replication.
