Veeam Availability Suite v9 Enterprise Plus

vs. Acronis Backup for VMware


Quick Reference Card
Veeam recognizes the new challenges companies across the globe face in enabling the Always-On Business, a business that must operate
24/7/365. To address this, Veeam has pioneered a new market for Availability for the Always-On Enterprise. Unlike legacy backup solutions,
which provide recovery time (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO) of hours or days, Veeam helps organizations meet recovery time and
point objectives (RTPO) of less than 15 minutes for all applications and data. This is achieved through a fundamentally new kind of solution
that delivers high-speed recovery, data loss avoidance, verified protection, leveraged data and complete visibility. Veeam Availability Suite,
which includes Veeam Backup & Replication, leverages virtualization, storage and cloud technologies that enable the modern data center to
help organizations save time, mitigate risks and dramatically reduce capital and operational costs.
