This week we launched a fun little site at NetBackupGuy.com. The first episode is up and shows our favorite little blue guy handling a monster of a large Exchange backup by using the fitness regimen of Granular Recovery Technology. There’s a few more videos to come so let us know what you think. The site lets you embed the videos so you can share them with other NBU friends. We’ve also put it up on Digg, delicious, Facebook and a few other social places if you wish to share.

As an easter egg if you check out the resumes for the characters on NetBackupGuy.com you can email them directly and we’re watching. We may even slip a few people a nice prize for entertaining us through emails sent to the characters. Hope you enjoy it and let us know your comments.

I like it a lot and very true about the Exchange monster is always a tough beast to know out.

He definitely will be in future NetBackup releases (along with the yellow guy and green running/waiting guys).  We have a certain emotional attachment with him here at Symantec.

Any possibility of seeing AXXiON in the near future?

The last I heard he has been missing in action since 1997.

I just thought about this - how about a different colored guy for dedup?  How about a purple guy?  :-)
