At the Gartner Conference in December, Gartner’s Dave Russell commented, “most backup systems are antiquated and designed for architectures and environments that are no longer the norm.”
The problem that underlies this premise is two-fold. Firstly, in information protection terms narrow capability-sets limit functionality today, but worse than that, restrict choice in the wider infrastructure for the future. Secondly, beyond product choice is process and understanding. Symantec research across a wide range of ‘consumers of IT’ indicates that knowledge around backup and disaster recovery planning, strategy and implementation is often limited. The knock-on effect for the business of this limited knowledge is the very reason that information protection continues to increase in importance; we rely on information constantly as a backbone of business and in many cases as a competitive advantage.
Backup Exec has evolved with and responded to these changing needs and the trends in the market. Today, it’s still the preferred solution. Backup Exec 15 has the capability to manage the increasing volume of data and the complexity of multiple platforms with one set of controls and dashboards. And there’s a new capacity-based pricing model that makes it more flexible and better value than ever before.
It’s Time for backup and recovery that takes care of your company’s most important asset, so you can get on with achieving more. It’s Time for Backup Exec 15.
