Introducing Symantec Backup Exec™ 2014

symantecIf your organization is like many others, you’re facing an increasingly complex backup and restore dilemma for your environment—whether virtual, physical or a combination of both. Symantec Backup Exec 2014 is designed to remedy that complexity by delivering a backup and recovery solution that meets your needs, with a host of powerful features that will help you save time, get more reliable backups, fast, easy recoveries, and reduce costs.

Here are 8 reasons to upgrade to Symantec Backup Exec™ 2014 today!

1. Store less with efficient deduplication and built-in archiving.

Backup Exec 2014 helps you keep pace with growing data volumes with integrated, block level, data deduplication. Unlike point solutions that deduplicate data per backup job, you’ll get greater storage savings with Backup Exec 2014’s data deduplication technology that deduplicates data across your entire virtual and/or physical environment. For even greater efficiency and enhanced storage savings, Backup Exec 2014 includes change block tracking that only backs up the blocks that have changed, rather than backing up every block of every VM in the infrastructure.
Backup Exec 2014 also includes integrated archiving to further reduce the consumption of primary storage and associated storage costs. The result: you can protect more data while reducing storage costs—all while minimizing backup windows, reducing network traffic, and reducing the disk space required for storing backup files.

2. Easy to use.

Backup Exec 2014 comes complete with an easy-to-use interface with intelligent dashboards and intuitive wizards that provide the visibility you need to quickly track and monitor every backup and recovery job.

It also saves time and simplifies the implementation of backup protection—with a few simple clicks, you can set backup jobs, view backup status, and perform recoveries. Backup Exec 2014’s centralized administration console delivers scalable management of distributed Backup Exec servers and reduces the time and resources needed to manage your backup operations.

3. Designed for optimal virtual machine protection.

Backup Exec 2014’s integration with Microsoft® Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) and VMware’s vStorage APIs for Data Protection (VADP) provides reliable and consistent application-aware backups for all your virtual machines. Using the latest technology, Backup Exec 2014 minimizes CPU, memory, and I/O load performance impacts on the virtual host. By executing post-processing tasks that don’t impact the backup window, such as log truncation, collection of meta data, and searchable catalogs, Backup Exec 2014 delivers highly optimized backup and fast, agile recovery of granular applicationdata directly from storage.

4. A single product for both virtual and physical environments.

Forget purchasing, deploying, and managing separate backup solutions for your physical and virtual machines. Backup Exec 2014 protects both physical and virtual environments from single server environments to thousands of servers/virtual machines—all with a single solution. You can get a complete picture of your entire backup and recovery status from one administrative console at any time. If scalability is important to you, rest assured that Backup Exec 2014 will support your backup and recovery needs as your organization grows.

5. Backup to virtually any storage device.

When it comes to storing critical data, Backup Exec 2014 has flexible options—so you can backup to virtually any storage device including disk, tape, dedupe storage, appliance, or a third-party cloud. There’s no need to be locked into buying a specific storage device and increasing your storage costs.

6. Fast, efficient, and versatile recovery.

You can easily find and recover data—at any level. Because Backup Exec 2014 intelligently indexes and catalogs backup data, you don’t have to waste valuable time and disk space mounting the backup job, determining what’s inside, and searching for specific data. With a few simple clicks, you can recover virtual machines, applications, databases, files, folders, and granular objects directly from backup storage including individual objects from Exchange, Active Directory, SQL Server, and SharePoint. Backup Exec 2014 simplifies and speeds up recovery when you need it most.

Backup Exec 2014 also includes—at no extra charge—Simplified Disaster Recovery (SDR) technology for minimizing downtime and business disruptions. In the event of a disaster, Backup Exec 2014 can recover an entire server from a bare metal state to the same hardware or dissimilar hardware in minutes—instead of hours or days.

7. Verifies the recoverability of your backup jobs.

Upon successful completion of each virtual machine backup job, Backup Exec 2014 automatically verifies the recoverability of everything you’ve just backed up. Backup Exec 2014 even proactively identifies potential problems that could cause job failures and notifies you so you can take action before it’s too late. You can also easily configure Backup Exec 2014 to automatically discover and protect new or unprotected resources that haven’t been backed up. Plus, it has the ability to automatically identify and protect new VMs the moment they appear on your network.

8. Simple to acquire and deploy.

Backup Exec 2014 is a cost effective backup and recovery solution that’s easy to acquire, license, and deploy. With Backup Exec 2014, you’ll have an affordable solution with licensing options that best fit your organization’s needs. Choose either on-premise software with three licensing options—per TB, per socket, per module—or an all-in-one, integrated hardware appliance inclusive of Backup Exec 2014software licensing.
