How do you compare the backup and restore speed of Veritas Backup Exec vs Veeam Backup & Replication?

Hi peers, 

We use Backup Exec (2010) and it is very slow. 

I understand they've improved since then and, thus, I would like to see if anyone can share a speed comparison for the Backup Exec 2021's version vs Veeam Backup & Replication.

Please assist with your insights.

Backup Exec 2020 -backup job:

- virtual machines: 4GB/min;

- MS SQL: 8GB/min;

- duplicate to tape (LTO 8)- 8-10GB/min.

The time depends on the speed of the storage source/destination.
