Top Six Reasons to use Symantec Backup Exec™ 2012 to Protect Microsoft Hyper-V®

  1. Unmatched protection for virtual machines and applications- Exclusive Symantec™ V-Ray technology in Symantec Backup Exec™ provides customers deep visibility inside the virtual machines and applications so you can better protect them. This insight helps to break down physical and virtual silos and enables transparent backup and recovery, and the ability to deduplicate backups, across your entire environment.
  2. Flexible recovery options from a single backup- Through a single-pass, host-level backup integrated with Microsoft® Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS), Backup Exec enables one-click recovery at the virtual machine, virtual disk, application, file/folder, and even granular object level without having to restore the entire virtual machine–making it fast and easy to find and restore just what you need to recover.
  3. Warm standby virtual machines for instant recovery- With physics to virtual conversion capabilities built in, if a server fails, you can get that server up and running in a Microsoft Hyper-V® environment in the time it takes to turn on the virtual machine! This can drastically shrink the amount of time your business-critical services are down. Conversion can be done simultaneously with a backup job or you can convert an existing backup set to a virtual machine or a virtual disk for added flexibility.
  4. Support for both virtual machines and Hyper-V hosts- Backup Exec 2012 allows you to quickly discover how easily you can protect your entire infrastructure with a single, integrated backup and disaster recovery solution that supports both disk and tape. This unified protection helps reduce the complexity and costs that can result from having multiple point solutions.
  5. Reduce storage requirements for virtual server backup- Integrated deduplication capabilities in Backup Exec dramatically reduce backup storage requirements by 90% or more and reduce network bandwidth utilization, facilitating up to 50% faster backups. Deduplicate across all data protected by Backup Exec, including virtual hard disks (VHDs) and virtualized application data, for even greater levels of storage savings.
  6. Unsurpassed backup and recovery of Microsoft® virtual applications- Recover individual Microsoft® Exchange, Sharepoint®, and Active Directory® items in seconds with patented Granular recovery technology-without having to mount virtual disks or stage the virtual machine! With Backup Exec 2012, there is no need for recovery environments, additional virtual machines, or other additional resources to recover granular data.
