Symantec introduced the new Backup Exec 2012 solution in Ljubljana

On Wednesday, March 7th, we hosted together with Symantec the BE2012 meeting in Ljubljana, where we introduced Symantec’s Backup Exec 2012. The presentation was held in a pleasant and lively atmosphere. Participants had many questions about the product, as the new Backup Exec 2012 offers many new features:


The new user interface
With Backup Exec 2012 you don’t need not be an experienced administrator to perform complex backup tasks. The interface is redesigned and offers at any time for a given situation only sensible options and support. Experienced administrators will be able to finish work faster.


Simplified Disaster Recovery - SDR
With Backup Exec’s integrated bare metal and “no hardware disaster recovery,” organizations will be able to easily recover a failed system to a physical server, or to a Hyper-V or VMware guest. Backup Exec’s powerful and patented recovery capabilities enable granular restore of entire virtual machines, single files, Active Directory objects, Exchange Emails, or SharePoint Documents from any single-pass physical, VMware or Hyper-V backup.


V-Ray and protection for virtual environments
V-Ray technology enables visibility across both virtual and physical environments for fast and efficient backup and recovery while eliminating the need for specialized point products. Additonally V-Ray enables host-level backup of entire virtual guests and recovery at the virtual machine, virtual disk, application, file, folder, and granular application data level. Advanced hypervisor features are also supported with both VMware and Hyper-V.


Extend deduplication
Whether you deduplicate at the client, media server or appliance, Backup Exec can deduplicate across all backup jobs including physical and virtual backups.


Improved support for Linux server
Source deduplication for Linux servers enables significant LAN/WAN bandwidth and backup storage savings while protecting Linux servers.


Simplified licensing model
