When your users are mobile, protecting their data requires applications that detect a network presence and copy the data up to the network for backup during a regular nightly backup job. In Backup Exec 2010 and earlier versions (going back to the 10.x days), a Backup Exec option called the Desktop and Laptop Option (DLO) did just that. If you purchased Backup Exec Small Business Server Edition, a limited seat DLO license was provided with the product.

(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)

Hello Backup Exec Users!

Anyone looking to move backup data to the cloud?  Planning on reducing the use of tape in the upcoming months or years?  Looking to save money on tapes, tape storage, and other offsite backups?  If you are researching or implementing any of these concepts, Symantec may have solutions that can help. 

We’re partnered with Nirvanix (www.nirvanix.com), a global provider of highly-available cloud storage to provide a method to backup data to the Nirvanix Storage Delivery Network (SDN).  Using the freely-available Backup Exec Cloud Storage for Nirvanix plugin (available here:  http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH141618 ), you can:

  • Use Nirvanix SDN cloud storage just like any other Backup Exec local storage device.
  • Establish the Nirvanix SDN cloud as a new storage tier or as a secondary off-...
