*** May 8, 2014: *** We thank you for your overwhelmingly positive response to the Backup Exec 2014 Beta program. The Beta will close tomorrow. We greatly appreciate your continued support. ***
For those of you accepted into the Backup Exec 2014 Beta program, a new build is now available for download. Participants will receive an email notification from SymBeta. If you are part of the Beta program and have not received it, please log into your SymBeta account and check your download section. Due to an overwhelming response, we are not able to accept any new registrations for the Beta program at this time.
With the new build now available, we have officially begun the countdown to the end of our Beta program. I would like to personally thank our Beta participants for taking the time to evaluate Backup Exec 2014 and for the helpful feedback. Your involvement is fundamental in helping us ensure that Backup Exec 2014 is rock solid before we reach general availability (GA). Below are just a few of the many positive comments we have received to date:
- “Personally, I’m over the moon with the performance improvements.”
- “Can’t believe Backup Exec 2014 is a Beta product. It’s as close to an RTM product as you can get.”
- “Positive changes in the UI – much cleaner with well needed mechanisms. Multiple resources per job was a nice cherry on top.”
We will continue to keep you updated on our progress. Thank you for your support.
