Symantec Corp. today announced Backup Exec 2010, which the company says will help mid-sized businesses save time and money by protecting more data and utilizing less storage. 

 

According to Symantec, it is the first backup and recovery package to offer granular recovery of Microsoft Exchange, SQL and Active Directory in VMware and Hyper-V environments from a single pass backup.  Backup Exec also adds new support for Microsoft Windows 2008 R2, Hyper-V R2, Exchange 2010, Windows 7 and VMware vSphere 4.0.

 

 “Organizations of all sizes are struggling to effectively manage information growth, particularly as they leverage virtualization technologies, creating new backup and recovery complexities,” said Pat Hanavan, vice president, Symantec Information Management Group.

 

Industry analyst firm IDC recently said that storage capacity is growing between 48-50% each year, which place more data at risk and making the disaster recovery process much slower.
