The Virtualization Squad Discusses Virtualization Backup & Data Protection

You cannot effectively manage, recover and protect what you can’t see. Symantec V-Ray technology embedded directly into core Symantec NetBackup and Backup Exec gives you X-Ray vision into your virtual environments. Watch the video and hear the experts from Symantec and VMware discuss best practices on how to backup virtual servers, reduce complexity, storage growth, and risk when virtualizing mission critical applications. Learn how V-Ray can improve your virtualization backup and recovery strategy by providing greater transparency across physical and virtual environments through a single solution. The Virtualization Squad video series addresses a variety of business needs and what backup virtualization can do to solve them.
