A guide to Veritas Backup and Recovery Products

As of 24th April 2017 and Veritas Backup Exec are now available as donations to UK charities through our Charity Digital Exchange programme.

Keep your files secure

This gives charities access to market-leading software designed to protect organisations’ data from losses due to system failures.

To help you understand the differences between the two application families, have a quick read through the info below:

Veritas System Recovery

Veritas System Recovery 16 quickly restores complete physical and virtual systems in minutes. It can even restore systems to dissimilar hardware, virtual environments (i.e. VMware’s vSphere, Microsoft’s Hyper-V and Citrix’s XenServer) or to the same hardware configuration.

The speed at which it works ensures that any data loss and downtime faced is minimised.

It also has flexible recovery capabilities that allow for the recovery of customised data – i.e. specific files or folders from a disk image.

Veritas Backup Exec

In contrast to Veritas System Recovery, Backup Exec offers more advanced, powerful features. It is designed to meet the needs of organisations running complex enterprise software from Microsoft, SAP, and Oracle.

Backup Exec 16 provides continuous data protection for Windows servers and workstations and for several other Microsoft software products, including SQL Server, Exchange Server, and SharePoint.

Some backup programs have trouble capturing and backing up the precise current state of constantly changing, multi-user enterprise applications. With its numerous agents and options, Backup Exec facilitates the quick backup and restoration of these applications. The data stored in the applications changes frequently, and continuous data protection ensures that you always have the latest version of your data. You thus have less need for lots of regularly scheduled incremental backups.

Moreover, with the necessary system recovery agents installed, administrators or end users themselves can recover individual email messages and database records. This is especially handy because user error is a more common cause of data loss than catastrophic, complete-system failure.

Finally, compression and de-duplication options for Backup Exec will reduce the size of your backup files and make storage costs more manageable.
