Announcing the new beta for Backup Exec
The Backup Exec team is delighted to announce registration for the next beta release of Backup Exec 2010 and 2012!
This beta release supports VMware vSphere 5.1 and Microsoft Windows Server 2012 (and Hyper-V). It is available for BOTH Backup Exec 2010 R3 and 2012, and is expected to be delivered automatically to either platform (as long as you are under maintenance).
This beta release demonstrates the concrete strides we’re making to deliver high quality software with up-to-date platform support. But let me be very clear: this release does NOT bring back the jobs monitor or multi-server jobs. Our intention is to get current with the industry before bringing back those legacy features. We still expect to address this request and will keep you appraised.
In the meantime, we’re continuing our efforts to listen and give you the straight story.
