Hot on the heels of Backup Exec 15 we are excited to announce the availability of Feature Pack 1 (FP1) for Backup Exec 15. Feature packs build on the core strengths of Backup Exec by addressing the top customer needs for hybrid environments and mark the transition away from major releases into a more continuous delivery model.
Feature Pack 1 introduces multiple performance optimizations with up to 62% shorter backup times with LTO tape drives, vastly reduced Exchange backup processing time through improved cataloging and optimized Virtual Machine protection through intelligent backup for VMware and Hyper-V Virtual Machines.
