Veritas Backup Exec 16

With Backup Exec 2016, ITP365 can easily protect your entire environment with a single product while simultaneously reducing storage costs and increasing backup speed.

Top 10 features of Backup Exec 2016:


1. Incredibly fast:

In fact, Backup Exec 16 delivers backup and data deduplication faster than previous versions (Backup Exec Backup Performance, Veritas Testing, September 2016). It doesn’t matter if you’re backing up physical servers, VMware, or Microsoft Hyper-V virtual machines — with features such as Instant GRT® and Instant Recovery of virtual machines, you’ll get reliable backup and recovery in less time than you thought possible. Backup Exec’s powerful performance helps you reduce data protection windows and saves you time.

2. Store less with efficient deduplication:

Backup Exec 16 helps you tame growing data volumes with integrated, block-level data deduplication. Unlike point solutions that deduplicate per backup job, you’ll get greater storage savings with Backup Exec 16’s advanced technology that deduplicates data across your entire virtual and/or physical environment.

3. Easy to use:

Backup Exec 16 comes complete with an easy-to-use interface, intelligent dashboards and intuitive wizards that provide the visibility you need to quickly track and monitor every backup and recovery job.

4. Designed for optimal virtual machine protection:

Backup Exec 16 integration with Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) and VMware vStorage APIs for Data Protection (VADP) provides reliable and consistent application-aware backups for all your virtual machines. Using the latest technology, Backup Exec 16 minimises CPU, memory, and I/O load performance impacts on the virtual host. 

5. A single solution for virtual, physical and cloud environments:

Forget purchasing, deploying, and managing separate backup solutions for your virtual, physical and cloud data. Backup Exec 16 protects all environments—from a single physical server to thousands of virtual machines—all with a single solution. Get a complete picture of your entire backup and recovery status from one administrative console at any time. 

6. Backup to virtually any storage device:

When it comes to storing critical data, Backup Exec 16 has flexible options—so you can backup to virtually any storage device including disk, tape, dedupe storage, appliance, or a third-party cloud. There’s no need to be locked into buying a specific storage device and increasing your storage costs.

7. Fast, efficient and versatile recovery:

You can easily find and recover data—at any level. Because Backup Exec 16 intelligently indexes and catalogues backup data, you don’t have to waste valuable time and disk space mounting the backup job, determining what’s inside, and searching for specific data. With a few simple clicks, you can recover virtual machines, applications, databases, files, folders, and granular objects directly from backup storage including individual objects from Microsoft Exchange, Active Directory, SQL Server, and SharePoint. Backup Exec 16 simplifies and speeds up recovery when you need it most.

8. Centralised management:

Backup Exec centralised administration console delivers scalable management of distributed Backup Exec servers and reduces the time and resources needed to manage your backup operations.

9. Simple to acquire and deploy:

Backup Exec 16 is a cost effective backup and recovery solution that’s easy to acquire, license, and deploy. With Backup Exec 16, you’ll have an affordable solution with licensing options that best fit your organisation’s needs. Choose from three licensing options—per TB, per socket, per module.

10. Supports the latest platforms and operating systems:

Backup Exec 16 builds on its twenty-plus years of Microsoft experience with full Day 1 support of Server 2016, Hyper-V 2016 and Azure targets. VMware vSphere 6.5 is also supported, continuing Veritas’ long history of protecting virtual machines. Don’t let your backup software prevent you from deploying advanced productivity benefits.
