Symantec will be supporting Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 through its Backup Exec 11d data recovery solution, extending granular recovery and continuous data protection to customers migrating to the new email platform.
Backup Exec 11d will also provide support for Exchange 2007 in a complete 64-bit environment, as well as supporting both Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) versions included with Exchange 2007.
Backup Exec 11d's innovative patent-pending Granular Recovery Technology enables the recovery of individual emails, folders, and mailboxes in seconds - without the need for separate mailbox backups. As a result, IT administrators no longer have to run multiple backups jobs to protect Exchange, which effectively cuts backup times in half or more. Granular Recovery Technology works with either continuous or traditional scheduled Exchange data protection methods. Backup Exec 11d also enables the quick recovery of components of other Microsoft applications, including SharePoint Portal Server, and Active Directory.
As with Exchange 2000 and 2003, Backup Exec 11d will redefine traditional protection of Exchange 2007 by eliminating the need for daily backups while allowing quick recovery of individual mailboxes, messages, and folders. Whether an organisation runs Exchange 2007 in a standard deployment, a local continuous replication or a clustered continuous replication configuration, Backup Exec 11d helps to ensure that Exchange 2007 data is quickly recoverable and available. However, only Backup Exec 11d provides the ability to perform granular recovery from an Exchange 2007 replica, enabling businesses to recover critical Exchange data in seconds.
