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.
Hitachi Plug-In for Veeam...
Nakivo is my favorite backup software. Below are the main benefits of Nakivo compared to Veeam
1. Low cost.
2. Backup storage with global deduplication (this is the main requirement of a backup solution. For Veeam, you need to pay for additional deduplication storage).
3. NAS appliance plugin (the backup solution can be fit on one NAS box storage. No need for any backup server).
4. The backup server resource requirement is too small.
5. No Windows license needed. Nakivo can be deployed via a provided Linux appliance/Linux-native installation.
The functionalities are almost the same. Nakivo is available at a lower price.
If you don't need advanced storage integration there is no difference.
Nakivo offer almost the same functionality of Veeam at a lower price.
They have the same functionality except that Nakivo allows the backups to be immutable, thus, providing protection against malware (backups cannot be moved, deleted or changed) It has 1/3 of the price but sometimes there is a direct deal.
For me, Nakivo has all Veeam features and also supports Oracle RMAN backup.
Nakivo has a very flexible deployment compared with Veeam (it supports the deployment using Windows and SQL only). It can be installed on NAS, VA, and many more. Most of the things have a reasonable price.
