Re: Migration to BE v16

There are Pros and Cons for using Cloud Storage for storing  Backup Data. Its hard to give a blanket statement on whether it is right for you or your organization.

Some of these are covered in the following Veritas Best Practices document. It was written with BE15 in mind, but the principles would be the same for BE16 and Azure.

As far as the migration from BE15 to BE16, that should be pretty straight forward and I would not expect any issues.

The easiest way to update your clients is to push out the remote agent from the media server.
