Re: Symantec Suggestion

Hi,

 

1. Use Backup Exec 15 for the servers...

2. Use Desktop and Laptop Option for the desktops. Read below for more information:

BE 15

Desktop and Laptop Option

DLO is a dedicated backup application for desktops and most likely cheaper in terms of licensing than if you had to go and buy a RAWS agent per VM. Bear in mind that DLO ONLY runs to disk, while BE does disk and tape (and a combination for duplication purposes). You need to factor that in mind when scoping your solution for the client.

Thanks!
