Symantec System Recovery 2011, formerly Backup Exec System Recovery, adds the following new features:
Updated support for the latest Microsoft® Windows®, Linux, VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Citrix XenServer operating systems and applications: With Symantec System Recovery 2011, we continue to build on our proven track record of comprehensive system protection for the latest Windows, Linux, VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Citrix XenServer operating systems and applications including: SharePoint® 2010, Exchange 2010 SP1, SQL 2008 R2, VMware vSphere™ 4.1, VMware ESX® 3.5 update 5, Citrix XenServer 5.6, SUSE® Linux® Enterprise Server 10 SP3, 11 and 11 SP1 and Red Hat® Linux® 5.4, 5.5 and 6.0.
Enhanced Symantec System Recovery Management Solution: The Symantec System Recovery Management Solution is a highly scalable centralized management solution designed to centrally manage large numbers of Symantec System Recovery clients from a single management server. The Symantec System Recovery Management Solution can manage up to 2,500 systems per console and can now be installed to and hosted on a Windows 2008 R2 64-bit server.
Enhanced customizable recovery disk wizard: Additional flexibility has been added to the customizable recovery disk wizard with the option to select an .ISO image as the source for a custom recovery disk. This is especially helpful for larger organizations that already utilize a customized version of the Symantec System Recovery Disk and would like to use it as the source for future modifications to their recovery environment.
All-in-one backup and recovery USB device: With new wizard functionality, you can easily transform a USB device into a bootable Symantec System Recovery Disk device to help reduce boot time and speed up the recovery process. Adding this boot functionality to a USB device is a non-destructive process, allowing USB devices enabled to be bootable recovery devices to also act as backup storage—creating an all-in-one backup and recovery device.
