Questions about BESR Virtual Edition

Created: 25 Jun 2010

I have three ESXi4 hosts and 8 guests which include Exchange, Active Directory, SQL, etc.  I'm contimplating getting BESR Virtual Edition but I have some questions before I pull the trigger.


  1. I know it can backup exchange servers and recover down to the message level but is it a real exchange aware software where backing up will get rid of the logs? 
  2. Where is BESR VE installed? Can it be and should it be installed on a virtual server?
  3. Seems obvious but can it recover down to the file level? Just want to be sure.
  4. Would I need different agents for exchange, sql, etc.?

Sorry again if these questions seem obvious but I was looking for an faq on this product and couldn't find one.
