Symantec is a global leader in data storage management, security and system management solutions to help consumers and organizations secure and manage their information driven world. With this new release of Backup Exec 2010, Symantec is delivering capabilities that focus on a number of key areas like intelligent storage management. Backup Exec 2010 has many new and exciting features to help companies store more data while cutting on operating costs.
De-Duplication now fully integrated in Backup Exec 2010.
Historically, deduplication was an enterprise class technology to be provided at all levels externally. Now, deduplication is integrated with Backup Exec2010. For those unfamiliar with this feature, deduplication reduces the data storage space needed for retaining a backup disk. Backup Exec 2010 can now process all 3 types of deduplication: client and server side deduplication, backup media server side deduplication, and appliance deduplication.
Unified Archiving reduces deterioration of data with virtualization and deduplication. Backup Exec active archiving of Windows file servers and Exchange servers is easy. Old files and data clutter storage space and can bog down system performance. Active archiving organizes these files and gets them out of the way, while still making them accessible should they be needed in the future.
Backup Exec 2010 provides higher performance and increased capabilities for both VMware and Hyper-V environments through the use of vstorage API’s. In addition, Backup Exec 2010 boasts entirely new, industry leading granular recovery capabilities for applications running in virtual environments. For example: a customer might be running SQL Exchange or even active directory in virtual environments. Symantec Backup Exec 2010 has the ability to recover and restore granular bits of those applications.
Backup Exec has come a long way in the short time since its Backup Exec v12 release in 2008. Backup Exec 2010 has incorporated new features, new capabilities, and continued improvement to their award-winning backup and recovery solution for both physical and virtual environments. P2V, V2P in [Backup Environment] BESR/SSR are features Symantec worked on with VMware to deliver the method of conversion for the BESR/SSR format. Truly, when you buy Backup Exec 2010, you get more protection while spending less. It’s an IT Department’s dream!
