I am a Cloud Solution Architect at a system integrator company. I am currently researching disaster recovery solutions.
What are the differences between Zerto, SRM, and Veeam? What is their unique selling point? I am preparing a comparison sheet of the features of all solutions. Which solution do you prefer?
Thank you for your help.

That's a great question.
In Europe/Austria most of the companies run Veeam - so do we. There a lot of advantages if you use Veeam as it's designed.
Also, Zerto (more for Data migration) we use - but not for Backup.
VM SRM is good for 1:n replication if you already use VMWare.
There is a good comparison: https://community.veeam.com/vu...
It's on the website from Veeam but still good.
Hi PeerSpot community members,
Currently, I'm researching these three Backup & Recovery products: Dell NetWorker vs Dell Avamar vs Veeam Backup & Replication. What are the main differences between them? In particular, I'm interested to understand the differences in the license models.
I appreciate your help.

I was able to sit the VMCA2022 course on Thursday, October 7th and Friday, October 8th.
The course was taken through HPE Learning and is a two-day course. The course is the entire day for the duration and is jam-packed with great content and labs.
My instructor was George Vish II, who was extremely great with the course teaching.
The course takes you through the new “Design ...
Recently on July 21st, there was a new storage plugin release by @Veeam for the Hitachi storage arrays. It can be found here – Veeam – Hitachi Plugin. This plugin allows you to connect Veeam to your Hitachi storage arrays to leverage the SAN-based snapshots for your backups. Hitachi has also released documentation which can be found here – Hitachi – Veeam Plugin.

Acronis Backup is a versatile backup-as-a-service solution for service providers. It allows you to protect workloads on-premises and in the cloud and provide backup to any storage. The deployment is flexible and good for hybrid environments. We evaluated Acronis Cyber Backup before ultimately choosing Veeam Backup and Replication.
What did we like about Acronis? It offers a single pane of glass for managing tenants. The backup recovery is fast and reliable. It also supports onsite and offsite backup destinations. The deduplication and incremental backups are fast and powerful. The user interface is easy to use and intuitive. Support is also responsive and good in several languages, with email and live chat support.
The integration with third-party products doesn’t work so well and it can be inconsistent on endpoints. There are also frequent changes in licensing models.
Veeam Backup and Replication provides security and availability across multiple environments and platforms. It provides continuous data protection and fast and reliable image-based backups. You can protect cloud, on-premises, virtual and Kubernetes workloads. They deliver unlimited capacity for long-term data and object storage. The replication capabilities are very powerful and you can recover instantly for Microsoft SQL and Oracle at file-level recovery.
Neither scheduled nor synthetic full backups require regular attention. You can carry out hourly backups, which run pretty fast. Veeam provides immutable storage, too. The data deduplication saves costs by reducing the amount of backup storage required. It can even back up the VMware server VMs.
Acronis is suited for companies that want to back up a few devices. It can be expensive for small businesses as the license for machines can be pricey. Overall, Veeam is a more complete solution that covers a wide array of environments, even on-premises hardware.
