Backup Exec Cloud DR Option
The Backup Exec Cloud DR Option enables the rapid recovery of VMware vSphere virtual environments. This Recovery as a Service offering replicates and recovers applications running in VMware environments in the cloud, enabling IT professionals to restore applications in minutes vs. hours or days.
Backup Exec Enterprise Server Option
The Enterprise Server Option provides ultimate licensing simplicity by consolidating three Backup Exec options into one. Each Enterprise Server Option, licensed per managed Backup Exec environment, gives you unlimited access to the Backup Exec Advanced Disk-Based Backup Option, Backup Exec Central Admin Server Option and Backup Exec SAN Shared Storage 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. True image restore functionality automatically restores data sets sequentially, simplifying restores. The Off-Host backup feature provides SAN-based Microsoft VSS-enabled snapshots using supported 3rd party hardware storage arrays. This enables better backup performance and frees the remote computer from processing the backup operation by taking a snapshot of its data volumes and importing the snapshots to the Backup Exec media server for fast local backup over the SAN.

Backup Exec Central Admin Server Option
Simplifies management of multiple Backup Exec media servers by providing a centralized management console view of all backup and restore operations. The Central Admin Server uses the same Backup Exec console, but provides a consolidated view of all Backup Exec operations including centralized backup, restore, monitoring, alerting, and reporting for multiple Backup Exec media servers in a Windows data center, distributed throughout the network or at remote offices. The Central Admin Server Option makes Backup Exec simple to grow and effortless to manage. Operations can continue uninterrupted on the managed media server even when there is a non-persistent network connection to the central administration server.
Backup Exec SAN Shared Storage Option
This powerful LAN-free backup solution allows multiple distributed backup servers to centralize storage devices that are connected over a switched fabric or iSCSI SAN for greater performance, efficiency, and fault tolerance. SAN Shared Storage Option load balances job activity across shared devices from multiple Backup Exec servers. For a list of supported tape devices, please visit:
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 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.

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 Exchange Mailbox Archiving Option
The Exchange Mailbox Archiving Option provides unified backup and archiving for growing Exchange environments by uniquely archiving data directly from the backup of the Exchange database without any impact on the production Exchange server. It provides administrators with the ability to reduce redundant data from the Exchange server source to free up storage space. Administrators can then optionally allow their end users to easily retrieve individual archived emails directly from within their standard Microsoft Windows Outlook client with the built in “Virtual Vault” plug-in. Administrators can also search and restore archived data through the Backup Exec console and redirect the Exchange mailbox data to the original or an alternate location. Overall, the Exchange Mailbox Archiving Option reduces storage while increasing the speed of backup and recovery of the Exchange database after archiving.
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.
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.
