Happy Friday Morning! It's coming up to 9.00 am here in California and so far it's turning out to be a beautiful day. The sky is blue, the sun is out in full force and the landscape around me is simply stunning. 

One of the projects I am working on today is the creation of a Backup Exec show real and I wanted to give everyone the opportunity to be featured in this video is some shape or form.

I am looking for statements and fun facts about Backup Exec in regards to what makes it special and standout against the competition. If you have an exhilarating, exciting, astonishing or incredible (you get the idea!) fact or story and would like to provide a quote, please get in touch with me.

The top 3 responses as judged by my Product Marketing Director (Drew Meyer) will be featured in this video. To make you feel comfortable, I also wanted to let you know that we would never use your name, title or company name without your explicit approval.

So what are you waiting for? Email me today ( and tell me how Backup Exec saved your butt, recovered data in lightning speed time or protects your entire environment completely etc etc.

Everyone that responds will go into a random draw to win $100 Amazon gift voucher.

All responses must be received by 29th March 2013. Draw will take place at 9.00am on the 1st April 2013.

Have a great day,

We are working hard to provide the best possible quality in the coming version of Backup Exec. The beta begins very soon if you would like to participate. We need strong voices to work with who will give us their honest opinions. Feel free to email me directly ( if you would like to discuss this or any other BE related issues in depth.

Thanks, Kate

"For me, using Backup Exec 2012 TM is like playing a competitive game.  Not only do I get to see how many years it may take from the release of a new vSphere or Windows version until it is actually supported by Symantec Backup Exec TM, but on a daily basis I can check for a high score of successful backups from the night before.  I also have games like how few days of tweaking it takes until a backup actually succeeds, or how many days in a row a server will back up successfully.  No other backup software I am aware of has such a high difficulty level - the only thing I want included now is an achievement system and world wide ladder ranking and high scores to really bring the community alight."

Really excited to see more quotes!

...not trying to be funny here, considering I didn't take the plunge to install BE 2012, but this isn't the place for a rant...head on here and post there...

This blog isn't the place for that...
