Alternatives Considered

IBM Spectrum Protect

IBM Spectrum Protect is related to the other IBM Spectrum products listed because it is part of the suite and is also the main backup product for backup and restoration of information. With Veeam it is related as they present competence in different lines of technology, often the integration of both tools can be the best solution for clients looking for a successful backup strategy.

NetApp SnapMirror

Over the years we have transitioned to NetApp SnapMirror for all our storage needs. However, due to the short life cycle of support, it is cost prohibitive to maintain after support is ended. The main reason we have liked NetApp SnapMirror due to the many options and standardized management capabilities and flexible options for provisioning and setup of storage.
