We are excited to announce the availability of Veritas Backup Exec 21.2 with accelerated Virtual Machine backups, integration with Microsoft Azure Stack HCI platform, ability to protect Microsoft SQL In-Memory OLTP databases, enhanced in-product help experience, easy setup for S3-compatible storage, and more.
Backup Exec 21.2 Accelerator v2
Backup Exec 21.2 Accelerator v2 combines two key technologies to accelerate backup performance:
Forever incremental processing removes the need to capture full backups, thus enabling faster processing and smaller backup windows while reducing the impact to shared virtual environments. In-line deduplication optimizes data movement by eliminating the need to re-send data segments that already exist in the deduplication database.
Together they accelerate backups to a new level without taking anything away from restores – all Backup Exec’s key capabilities can be leveraged with Accelerator v2 backups, including:
Microsoft SQL In-Memory OLTP backups
Microsoft SQL is at the core of many customer’s operations and continuously adds capabilities to meet evolving business needs. Microsoft SQL in-memory On-Line Transaction Processing (OLTP) is aimed at high-performance operations that require in-memory processing.
With Backup Exec 21.2, we can now protect in-memory OLTP databases to keep all the high-performance data that runs modern businesses safe.
Azure Stack HCI Integration
Backup Exec adds Day 1 support for Microsoft’s new Azure Stack HCI platform to enable everyone to take full advantage of the hybrid cloud without compromises.
Backup Exec integration with Azure Stack HCI enables full capabilities, including:

S3-Compatible Storage Configurator
S3 stands for Simple Storage Service. With Backup Exec 21.2, we further simplify the configuration of S3-compatible storage services by introducing a configuration wizard as an alternative to the Backup Exec command Line Interface (BEMCLI) configuration.
Enhanced in-product web-based help
The updated web-based help platform ensures you always have access to the latest help documentation within the Backup Exec interface.
