Veritas recently published Backup Exec 16 as an offering in the Azure Marketplace, Microsoft’s online store for public cloud system tools and applications. The Backup Exec 16 offer in the Azure Marketplace allows customers (and potential customers) to rapidly deploy a Backup Exec 16 server in the Azure cloud space. Some of the potential use cases for deploying a Backup Exec server in the Azure cloud space include:
The Backup Exec 16 – Standard Azure Marketplace solution uses the “Bring Your Own License” model where Backup Exec is installed with a 60 day “Trial” license and you can choose to either install your own existing Backup Exec 16 license(s) or you can use the Backup Exec product for 60 days in ‘Trial’ mode. The Backup Exec 16 – Standard Azure solution installs with the ‘Agent for Applications and Databases’ and the ‘Agent for VMWare and Hyper-V’ options enabled. While running Backup Exec in ‘Trial’ mode, you can choose to install other Backup Exec options using the Backup Exec Install and Licenses utility.

All of the configuration options are validated and if the configuration is ok, then you can proceed to the next step which is to ‘Purchase’ the Backup Exec 16 Azure Marketplace solution. You also have the option of downloading the Azure Resource Manager template that contains the configuration which can be used for command line deployment of Azure VMs

After clicking on the ‘Purchase’ button, the new Azure VM will be deployed and Backup Exec 16 will be automatically installed. Once the new VM is up and running you will be able to use the remote desktop utility to connect to the server and to run Backup Exec.
