Symantec Backup Exec 2012

Created: 09 Oct 2013 | 4 comments

Hello all,

Quick question here, does Backup Exec 2012 support backing up of data to remote sites.

Here is the scenario users access and save data on system running on a main server. now we need to back up the system data to a remote / cloud site.

will backupexec 2012 be able to handle this task? or do i need another system for that symantec system recovery perhaps?

kindly advice.

Backup Exec should be able to backup to a remote B2D folder. If it is a cloud, you need to make sure that it is a supported cloud service and you have the correct plugin installed

Thank you for your reply.

what should be deployed to the remote site? the Backup exec will run on the main server. the agent for back up exec?

Although BE can backup to remote sites, it is sensitive to the quality of the line. One dropped packet and your job would fail
