Whether you are using disk, tape or cloud, you can easily and reliably recover your information.

Integration with Azure Site Recovery. With Instant Cloud Recovery, Backup Exec integrates directly with Azure Site Recovery to ensure data and application availability with cloud-based disaster recovery. (See Figure 2.) This integrated disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) solution can minimize recovery point objectives (RPOs) and recovery time objectives (RTOs) for businesscritical sites and data with off-site recovery to Azure.

Save more, store less. Flexible global deduplication in Backup Exec helps you solve for growing data challenges, regardless of how much your data changes. It helps minimize backup windows, decrease network traffic and reduce disk space required for storing backup data. The new deduplication to cloud reduces the total cost of ownership (TCO) with comprehensive dedupe to cloud that can save storage and infrastructure costs.

Advanced integration with VMware and Hyper-V. Backup Exec protects your entire virtual environment, featuring advanced integration with VMware and Hyper-V. Recover what you need, when and where you need it. Backup Exec provides the flexibility to protect VMware and Hyper-V environments using agents or agentless methods, in addition to Microsoft and Linux-based physical machines, whether on-prem or in the cloud. Easily create Instant Recovery copies from your virtual machine backups and perform automated recovery with Backup Exec Recovery Ready. Backup Exec uses Resilient Change Tracking (RCT) and the latest API integration with Hyper-V, increasing incremental and differential backup performance by up to 50 percent.
