(April 8th EDIT: The Beta cycle is now ending. Please see my First Availability blog here on how to get the gold code early)

A Beta program has started for Backup Exec but is ending soon and will then be moving into the RC (Release Candidate), phase. Only users already signed up for the Beta and active (i.e. providing feedback) will be invited to the RC phase where we support users installing it in production setups. Some of the new features include:

  • Deduplication performance improvement
  • Deduplication optimization for VMware specific backups
  • Exchange Virtual Vault for the Archive Option (makes recovering vaulted items much easier for end users)
