    I have configured Veeam backup with the Veeam Agent for Linux and I am very satisfied about it. I reach incremental backups within minutes while the cPanel backup can take hours.
    Also, you can restore the system itself with it.

    Now my question, would this be sufficient in comparison with the cPanel backup? Or is there a specific reason I should still use cPanel backup? I can still do a backup once in a week for example so that the users can download a backup if needed.

    Hello @Erjen,

    You are welcome to use a third-party backup solution if you find it suits your requirements better than the backup features offered in the cPanel & WHM. For instance, I can tell you there are no existing features offered in cPanel & WHM that will allow for the backup and restoration of the entire filesystem. I encourage you to submit feature requests or vote for existing features if you'd like to see changes or improvements to what's currently offered:

    Thank you.
