Virtualization technology has been widely adopted by organizations of all sizes to optimize critical IT assets, such as data and application servers. As a result of this virtualization trend, companies are looking for efficient and effective ways to back up and recover their virtual servers and the critical applications that many of these virtual machines host, such as Microsoft Exchange®, SQL Server®, SharePoint®, and Active Directory®.
Administrators responsible for the backup and recovery of virtualized environments understand the frustration and difficulty associated with backup technologies that are not specifically designed to protect virtual infrastructures. Administrators who rely on legacy, misfit solutions to protect their virtual resources face several challenges. Backup Exec 2014 solves those challenges with technology designed specifically to protect virtual environments.

Today's information and technology administrators need reliable, easy to manage, and efficient backup and recovery solutions to protect their SharePoint intellectual property.
