  2. P2V — Physical to Virtual Conversion

Symantec Virtual Machine Backup

Backup to Virtual and Physical to Virtual Conversion (P2V) with Symantec V-Ray Technology

Accelerating Virtualization with V-Ray

Virtualization has taken disaster recovery to a whole new level. Being able to convert a backup to virtual helps you not only accelerate the virtualization process, but also provides you an efficient means for longer term retention and disaster recovery.

Symantec Backup Exec and NetBackup have been providing system recovery to dissimilar hardware (Bare Metal Restore) for years. Now you can take this capability a step further and do physical to virtual conversions (P2V) on the fly. This becomes a cost-effective way to migrate that image to lower cost disk storage, or be able to easily replicate it to a secondary site for disaster recovery.
