I am really excited to announce that Backup Exec 2014 is generally available!

We promised to keep you updated on the progress of Backup Exec 2014. Today, I am excited to confirm that Backup Exec 2014 will reach general availability (GA) on 2 June 2014!

As indicated in my last update, we closed the Beta program a little over a week ago. I wanted to share some additional customer feedback we received since that time:

  • “Love the redesign on the UI- specifically the Job Monitor.”
  • “Happy that I have so much flexibility to see what is happening, without having to navigate between screens.”
  • “Very pleased with it. Very smooth installation and it works very good.”

Thank you for your continued support.
