Why are organizations investing in Backup and Recovery Solutions? A new Business Value Analysis Market Research Report by The Alchemy Solutions Group answers that question and more.
The Alchemy Solutions Group surveyed a cross-section of Symantec customers, spanning a majority of regions and industries to compile the report. In addition, the study cites recently compiled Total Operational and Economic Impact research studies.
According to the report, the top-5 business drivers over the next two years for purchasing and implementing a backup and recovery solution are as follows
·         Manage backup volume growth
·         Eliminate data redundancy
·         Improve backup success rates and disaster recovery
·         Drive labor...

While no one wants a disaster to occur, the reality is that they happen. What if your business was hit with a disaster – a virus, hacker attack, power outage or even a fire? Are you prepared with a recovery plan to revive critical customer, financial and business information? Symantec’s 2009 SMB Disaster Preparedness Survey found that while most small to medium sized businesses perceive they are ready for disaster, their actual level of preparedness is not up to par.

Rather than hoping for the best and being unprepared, we recommend small and mid-sized businesses take these simple steps to protect their information and systems:
• Decide what critical information should be secured and protected
• Look to a solution provider to help create disaster plans, educate employees and monitor threats
• Automate backup
• Test annually

Protecting your SMB from disaster and communicating your plan to customers helps you...

The right resource, at the right time, for the right cost

Most of us never really have the time (or inclination for that matter) to design and deploy a really great solution backup strategy based on BE and/or BESR. There are a whole raft of really good partners of Symantec’s who do this and can help customers get the best out of their BE deployment as well as keep the environment up to date. In order to compliment services offered by partners there are a number of fixed priced service offerings from Symantec to help support both customers and partners accelerate the successful implementation and upgrade of Backup Exec and Backup Exec System Recovery when resources can be limited.

The services are suitable for Small Business customers whose environments range in size from 1 to 10 servers. The fixed price gives the customer the comfort of knowing that the project will never exceed their allocated budgets providing a number of key benefits:

  • Minimise...

I don't know if any of you have noticed but the first fiscal quarter of this year has been pretty bad for server sales. It doesn’t matter what the pundits say, however, it is important for all of us to save money, cut costs – but absolutely not at the expense of our backup.

Whatever else you gamble with, backup shouldn’t be one of them. IDC recently reported that server sales from January to March was the worst quarter in the dozen years that they have been releasing quarterly server figures. The current economic crisis has injected a disconcerting amount of uncertainty into the business climate. Organisations are loath to spend any more money than is absolutely necessary.

The silver lining here is that IT departments can use this opportunity to consolidate existing projects and focus on optimising existing backup systems . Backup Exec 12.5 and Backup Exec System Recovery 8.5 are built on complete protection and recovery providing central management...

Backup Exec 12.5 released an Agent for Enterprise Vault, which is designed to offer complete protection for Enterprise Vault 7.5 implementations.  When Enterprise Vault 8.0 was released, architectural changes in EV 8.0 made the Backup Exec 12.5 Agent for Enterprise Vault unable to automatically protect all aspects of Enterprise Vault. An integrated solution will be in the next version of BE. In the meantime …

For customers who have not purchased the Agent for Enterprise Vault, and wish to protect Enterprise Vault manually with a combination of Backup Exec Agent for SQL Server and Agent for Windows Systems, refer to the following Tech Note:

The Backup Exec 12.5 Agent for Enterprise Vault contains all of the building blocks necessary to protect Enterprise Vault 8.0.  Customers who have purchased the Agent for Enterprise Vault do...

Circular logging must be disabled if you want to do the following:

Run incremental and differential backups.

Recover data up to the point of failure.

Run continuous backups of Information Store transaction logs.

Put transaction log files on a separate physical disk from the database. If the disk that contains the database is damaged, the transaction logs are available as a recovery resource.

Set the retention period for deleted items and mailboxes to a length of time that is appropriate for the available disk space. The longer the retention period, the more disk space is required. However, some retention period can prevent you from having to restore a mailbox or database. If possible, configure the Exchange server so that items are not deleted until a full backup is performed.

Make Write Cache unavailable on the SCSI controller. Data corruption can occur if the computer fails before the operation is written to disk.

Monitor the...
