This perception is understandable given the number of products in the marketplace that simply address backup and recovery alone. Narrow capabilities that do not even cater to all areas of the infrastructure have a tendency to worsen ...

Datacenter floor space is a lot like closet space, you can never have enough of it. My first house was built in the late ‘40s, and had tiny closets.

Having used Backup Exec 2014 with the Macintosh Agent I've come to notice it's inherent instability. It is seemingly apparent that Symantec need to update the agent to support the latest Macintosh Operating systems. The current agent for 2014 only supports OS X 10.9.2. OS X is now up to 10.10.3, and on the 10.9 series we are up to 10.9.5. I've seen the agent crash on an almost daily basis on ...

Once Hotfixes 217591 or 218257 are installed to Backup Exec 2014, either manually or via Live update, the BkupInst2014.htm install log file will incorrectly list them as being 'Backup Exec (TM) 2012 Patch...
