As the name implies, this feature automatically recovers a virtual machine from application faults.

If you own a Backup Exec 2010 R3 or Backup Exec 2012 product and have license for Agent for VMware Virtual Infrastructure or Virtual Agent respectively, here is an interesting feature for you.

Your Backup Exec is becoming more intelligent and crossing the boundaries of traditional backup infrastructure and defining new set of standards by entering into high availability domain.

So here is the new exciting offering: “Backup Exec is integrated with Symantec clustering software, it can provide complete application protection that includes Application Protection as well as Business Continuity in a single offering”.

What all you achieve:

Apples weren’t my thing a couple of years ago. It was all a bit too predictable. You could tell the guy on the train who was going to get a Mac out of his laptop case – it was ‘a certain type.’ Now it seems I have become one of those types. It’s ok these days because every second person has an Apple product of one type or another. I’m hopeful that fact prevents me from being part of that once-predictable crowd.

For me it started with a phone. I had two Blackberries over a period of two or three years and they served their purpose really well. I was a huge fan. Then one day, the whole RIM-outage-no-mobile-email-reboot-it-every-so-often thing just became too difficult. It turned out that in my job (for which mobile communication is important) having to do all those extra bits and pieces you have to do when you own a Blackberry, we’re getting in the way of actually doing my job. Landing in another country for a one day meeting and...

I've been away for quite some time. Not physically, you understand, although the same level of travelling around the world applies, as ever, but in writing terms. A lot has been happening in the world of Backup Exec and its left me with little time to sit and think and write. For that I can only apologise but its all been in the name of a good cause. If you're reading this then you are probably aware that Backup Exec 2012 has been launched. Its significant. It brings change, but not just change for the sake of change. It brings change that makes life easier. I urge you to familiarise yourself with the changes. I moved from a Blackberry to an iPhone a little while ago and its a bit like that. Different, but better and it took no time at all to get into a new look and feel.

While I'm on the subject of change, its change time for me too. For the last eleven years I've been looking after Backup Exec in one role or another and that's a long time in anybody...

I have been using a Cybernetics miSAN-V for the past 6 months. There have been our share of issues with this solution and I would like to know if there are others out there using the same solution. If so, I'd like to share throughs and issues about problems that were encountered along the way.

For example, has anyone attempted a synthetic backup with this device? How about replication with a low bandwidth connection?

I was having trouble updating the remote agent of a particular system after installing SP1 for Backup Exec 2010. I updated several other servers successfully, but this particular one would give me this error message:

"Error connecting to the remote server. Ensure that the server is available, has WMI enabled, and is not blocked by a firewall.24"

The firewall service was disabled so I knew that wasn't the problem. This computer is not a domain computer like all of our other systems, so I thought that had something to do with it. However after doing some research it seemed like that wasn't the issue.

I followed the work arounds in this post:

However all of the services that needed to be running were, and the GPO's mentioned had the proper user...

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.

The P2V process utilizes parallel data streams to store backup data from a protected server to a Backup Exec 2012 server while simultaneously sending the same backup data, in the form of a virtual machine, to a virtual host in the environment for both VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V environments.

The result of a P2V operation is a fully recoverable backup set as well as a fully functional virtual machine that can be used for permanent virtual conversion operations as well as warm failover, disaster recovery scenarios.

The B2V process is...

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.

Often in marketing it is hard to deliver technical information to the end customers. Everyone is busy, and there is so much noise online it is hard for product announcements to reach customers. One just needs to post a question on LinkedIn asking question about...
