Backup Exec Deduplication Option
Easily reduce data backup storage by 10:1 while optimizing network utilization across physical and virtual environments with the Backup Exec Deduplication Option. Unlike other solutions, it provides an integrated and customizable deduplication offering to optimize any backup strategy with client deduplication (deduplicates data at the source or remote server), media server deduplication (deduplicates data at media server), or appliance deduplication (integrates with OpenStorage deduplication appliances). In addition, when used with the Enterprise Server Option, deduplicated backups can also be replicated efficiently over WAN environments to another Backup Exec Media server (deduplicates data from remote offices to headquarters) providing a solution that will adapt to any environment. Whether you deduplicate at the client, media server or appliance, Backup Exec can deduplicate across all backup jobs including physical and virtual backups at the same time delivering superior deduplication capabilities.
Backup Exec Advanced Disk-based Backup Option
Backup Exec Advanced Disk-based Backup Option enables faster backups and restores through advanced disk-based backup and recovery, including Synthetic and Off-Host backups to perform zero impact backups. Synthetic backups reduce backup windows and network bandwidth requirements and do not impact the original client. New true image restore functionality automatically restores data sets sequentially, simplifying restores. The Off-Host backup feature enables better backup performance and frees the remote computer by processing the backup operation of the remote computer on a Backup Exec media server instead of on the remote computer or host computer.
Symantec Desktop and Laptop Option
With the majority of business-critical information residing outside of the data centre or off corporate servers, protection for desktops and laptops is a must. The Symantec Desktop and Laptop Option is an easy to use stand alone solution which provides reliable automated file protection for desktops and laptops from the market leader in Data Protection. Whether desktops and laptops are connected to the network or offline, the Symantec Desktop and Laptop option provides continuous data protection.
Backup Exec Library Expansion Option
Provides the ability to leverage additional tape drives within a multi-drive tape library. When you install Backup Exec, support for the first drive in every robotic library is included. The Library Expansion Option enables support for each additional drive in a robotic library. Backup Exec supports one of the most comprehensive lists of tape devices in the industry with support for almost all SCSI, SAS, and Fibre attached tape devices from single drive libraries to large tape silos.

Backup Exec NDMP Option
The Backup Exec NDMP Option uses the Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP) to backup and restore Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices including NetApp, EMC Celerra and IBM N-Series storage configurations. The Backup Exec NDMP Option supports several different NAS storage configurations including local backups to NAS attached tape devices, remote backups of NAS data to a Backup Exec media server (disk or tape), or in a “3-Way” configuration to a 2nd like NAS device. This flexibility allows backup administrators to design their storage environments for the most efficient backup of their critical data stored on NAS appliances over a SAN or LAN.

Backup Exec Open File Option for Remote NetWare Servers
Enhances file protection by helping to ensure that every file is protected even while in use (on NetWare 6.5 volumes). This option can handle open files at the volume level and is seamlessly integrated into Symantec Backup Exec software.
Virtual Tape Library Unlimited Drive Option
Designed for Virtual Tape Libraries, the Virtual Tape Library (VTL) Unlimited Drive Option provides simple, cost efficient pricing for VTL devices by supporting an unlimited number of virtual tape drives and slots without the need to license each tape drive on a Backup Exec Media server separately. Only a single VTL license is needed per Backup Exec media server regardless of the number of VTL devices. For a list of supported VTL devices, please visit:
Backup Exec File System Archive Option
The File System Archiving Option provides unified backup and archiving for File Systems by uniquely archiving data from the backup copy. By archiving data from the backup sets, Backup Exec eliminates additional querying and movement of data on the remote computers. The Backup Exec File System Archiving Option provides administrators with the ability to reduce redundant data from the File server source to free up storage space. Administrators can easily retrieve archived data through the Backup Exec console. Overall administrators will be able to easily index data and set retention periods to efficiently manage data lifecycles.
