Backup Exec 2012 update – vSphere 5.5 support and R2 Beta registration!

Latest blog from Symantec Information Mgmt Group VP Blake McConnell
http://buex.ec/2012BetaBlog

From:  Blake McConnell, vice president of Product Management, Backup and Recovery, Symantec Corp.

It’s always a good day when we can share product updates and progress with Symantec’s Backup Exec community. This is one of those good days.

Thank you

First I want to thank all of you for your continued loyalty to Backup Exec. I realize that today’s update may not address every question, wish or concern, but still want to communicate the significant progress that is being made.

vSphere 5.5® support

Platform support is our top priority. Targeted for release in mid-November, Backup Exec 2012 Service Pack 3 will include support for VMware vSphere 5.5®. Our team will deliver this support within 60 days of vSphere 5.5 general availability (GA). Once the Service Pack is released, it will be available for download from our Support website or you can watch for the patch to be available via LiveUpdate in early December.

Backup Exec 2012 R2 Beta – now open for registration

Today also marks a milestone for the Backup Exec 2012 R2 release, Beta registration is now open! The Beta version includes the functionality you’ve been asking for - media server support for Windows Server 2012, the jobs view and the ability to assign multiple servers to a single backup job. You can learn more about what’s included in the Beta and sign up for it on our official registration page - buex.ec/be2012beta

While we’re on the topic, I want to set proper expectations around the date for Beta availability, which is scheduled for early 2014.

 ✽ First and foremost, our goal is to ensure customer delight, which means we will not compromise on quality to ship a product before it’s ready, even for a Beta release. We are taking the time necessary to ensure our Beta code is production-level quality. While this means it takes us a bit longer to reach this milestone, it allows us to get Beta feedback in real world environments, providing data beyond what we can get in a lab environment and yielding an overall higher quality product.
 
 ✽ Second, we expect this Beta will be in high demand so we are opening up registration early to allow enough time to process as many applications as possible before it is available for download. Opening registration now means that those accepted into the program will have access to the Beta download as soon as it becomes available in early 2014. More on that soon!
Windows Server 2012 R2 support – what’s the plan?

Congratulations to the Microsoft team on the GA of Windows Server 2012 R2! Naturally, you want to know if Backup Exec 2012 R2 will support it. What I can tell you right now is that this platform is on our radar and without question, a top priority for our team. My plan is to provide you with an update on Windows Server 2012 R2 support in the next 5 to 6 weeks.

In the meantime, please register for the Beta. We look forward to hearing your feedback!

You mention a great solution to manage Backup Exec BKF repair. Here i also recommended a software which recovers data from compressed and split BKF files created by Symantec (VERITAS) Backup Exec as well as NTBackup tool.

The Backup Exec 3600 Appliance mitigates the problems of complexity, cost, and risk associated with traditional backup solutions by delivering a combined hardware and software solution in a single package.

This Google+ Hangout is intended to assist partners, service providers and end-users as they design and implement a data protection strategy. Building a traditional backup solution can result in a high level of complexity. Our experts will discuss the turnkey advantages of the BE 3600 Appliance.  It provides a Backup Server, 5.5TB of back end storage as well as “all-you-can-eat” Backup Exec 2012 Agents and Options, including the Deduplication Option, all in one pre-configured box.  

Join our Hangout along with members of Product Management and Engineering.  We will take a good hard look at the Backup Exec 3600 and answer your questions about the technology, implementation and best practices.

Karin, unfortunately the audio was so bad that I was unable to listen in for long. I purchased the Dell appliance just before you announced the Symantec appliance. I have had issues with it from day one. I do like the software as it is fairly robust and intuitive. My frustrations are with getting consistent backups. I've yet to have a week of consistent backups.. The vmware agent has never had successful backup. I'm not sure if your appliance works better then the Dell appliance but i'm at the point of total frustration with it..

In today’s business environment IT Professionals need to adapt to changes and opportunities faster than ever.  Increasingly so, they rely on their data to run their business functions.  The loss of access to that data would not only cripple, but could ruin a company.  More IT Pros are interested in virtualization as a way to improve business efficiency, but have legitimate hesitation due to concerns about its impact on the speed of access and recoverability they have to their data.  

Today’s landscape is littered with niche products for protecting virtual machines and their data, but Symantec Backup Exec delivers a unified solution for backup and recovery of virtual environments.  It protects virtual and physical servers and data with industry leading granular recovery.  Join virtualization experts from Symantec, Task Force Tips and NAC Solutions as we answer your questions and discuss best practices for transitioning to virtual environments and protecting your virtual data.
