在今天的生意场上,公司所提供的客户体验质量很大程度上取决于技术。即使当客户与公司员工面对面或通过电话交流互动时,这名员工所面对的也许是代表客户发言的计算机应用程序。 因此,在确保企业服务与数据的可用性和韧性方面,公司 IT 团队面临着前所未有的压力。在 21 世纪,公司的意义就在于自己的技术。客户对公司的信任度取决于公司服务的可用性和可靠性。 因此,备份与恢复对于公司的重要性已经不言而喻。但另一方面,由于 IT ...

在現今企業中,公司提供的客戶體驗品質通常取決於技術。即使客戶與公司員工面對面或是透過電話互動,公司員工也可能是透過代表客戶方面的電腦應用程式與之互動。 因此為了隨時能夠提供企業服務與資料並保有靈活度,IT 團隊正承受前所未有的壓力。在 21 世紀,公司與技術是是一體兩面的。要贏得客戶的信任,端視能否隨時提供服務以及服務的可靠度。 備份與復原的重要性將更甚於以往。另一方面,由於 IT 團隊需要更多時間開發全新技術服務以維持企業競爭力,因此沒有太多時間處理備份與復原等例行作業。公司需要簡化備份與復原作業,將成本與資源降到最低,但同樣需要以較高服務層級保護快速成長的資料量。 這些目標看似矛盾,但許多亞太地區的公司已發展出可達成上述目標的策略。這些公司縮減了備份作業的時間與成本,因此有更多資源可投入創新。其中有 8 家公司分享了他們的備份與復原策略,詳見如下: 1. ...

In OpsCenter it is possible to extract reports using custom SQL from a remote ODBC connection (there is a TECHNOTE on how to achieve this).

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... '. This is a display issue in the install log only and will not affect the operation of Backup Exec 2014.
