Backup Exec 16

Backup Exec 16 seems to be available to download. But I cannot find any documents related to BE16 release? I would mostly be interested about SCL, the SCL link in Backup Exec 16 admin guide forwards to BE15 online article?

Ok, Windows 2016 Core will support the Agent for Windows. It should have the same caveats as BE 15.

We did not introduce any Nano support, unfortunatly, in BE 16 yet.

Backup Exec 16 is available to existing customers with current maintenance contracts. The software was available to support Windows Server 2016, Hyper-V 2016 and Microsoft Azure on day one of Microsoft 2016 release cycle. Backup Exec will be generally available (GA) to everyone on 7th November.

Hi 

Thank you for the update.

Just a silly question, why Server 2016 is not mentioned in Backup Exec 16 SCL document? I can only find SQL Server 2016 and Exchange 2016.

Dropped support for IBM Domino and Windows 2003

Maybe time to drop  Backup Exec for another product
