I’m excited to have a guest Blogger Rudy McNeese and the Heathrow, Florida office join the Countdown to Better Backup. Today we opened the launch countdown window for Instant Disaster Recovery with P2V and B2V. 

With this capability Backup Exec 2012 will expand add two new key capabilities, physical to virtual conversions, known as P2V, as well as the ability to backup to virtual format, known as B2V.

Why Roseville?

We started the NetBackup and Backup Exec launch sequence this week with the release of the Countdown to Better Backup Calendar. This was modeled after the idea of an Advent Calendar. Every few days we will open a new window to reveal a new feature of the launch calendar leading up to the product launch. As part of the launch effort each square on the calendar will open in a different city worldwide. This helps us reach our customers and partners in cities around the world and it gives us a chance to bring together all the people who have worked on the release.
