Hello folks

I've been using Symantec Backup Exec System Recovery 8 on Geekzone and it works fine. But since we are moving to a virtual environment sometime soon I though of using Symantec Backup Exec to do backups from the host machine.

Would someone be able to tell me the difference between Symantec Backup Exec Continuous Protection Server 12 and Symantec Backup Exec 12?

Anyone using those and see big differences?

freitasm: Microsoft Hyper-v.

I'd be interested to hear on how you get on with that. I'm running VMWare, and have thought about setting up a trial server for HyperV but I just don't think I'll be able to find the time.

Will be interesting to hear your thoughts after implimenting it.
Im sure there will be countless new hyperv orientated products out soon.

I see 3 virtualisation methodologies comming up

1) Hyperv - for SBS/EBS servers and small environments
2) Zen - for linux type users
3) VMware - for the bigger enterprises, government depts and the like.

Hi Mauricio:

Backup Exec Continuous Protection Server (CPS) is a feature of Backup Exec for Windows Servers, and provides continuous backup capabilities for file servers; it also has the capability to continuously protect Exchange.  It is focused on data protection (not system level), and is commonly used in remote office situations. If you are interested in virtual environments, however, you should take a look at the recently announced Backup Exec 12.5 release (avalible on Oct 6) and the new Agent for VMware Virtual Infrastructure (AVVI).  This AVVI agent will allow you to protect your ESX systems using VCB, without having to deploy a remote agent to your virtual box.  Similarly, there is a new Agent for Microsoft Virtual  Servers (AMVS) – including Hyper-V -  if that is your virtual host of choice. Backup Exec 12.5, CPS, AVVI and AVMS can all be evaluated free of charge for 60 days by simply visiting www.backupexec.com
