Symantec debuts Windows Server 2008 back-up

Symantec resellers will be amongst the first to support Windows Server 2008 with the release of Backup Exec 12 for Windows servers and Backup Exec System Recovery 8.

Symantec’s Sydney-based, Pacific mid-market manager Steve Martin says it is the first vendor to be certified to support Windows Server 2008 locally. “The key benefit for partners looking to embrace Server 2008 and deploy it to their customers is they have a back-up solution available today.”

Both products offer disk to disk back-up capability.

“This means data can be backed up to an FTP server offsite, which can be operated by a partner.”

The products leverage Symantec’s security knowledge, he adds.

“Both Backup Express and System Recovery integrate into our Threatcom meter. If for example the Threatcom detects increased activity it can automatically fire up a back-up for your business.”

The products also feature granular restore, which allows users to restore individual items without having to restore their entire email system or Share Point environment, says Martin. “These back-ups can be done by the customer and it simplifies the headache of panic calls. Businesses can do a recovery quickly and get on with what they need to do.”
