Benefits for Organizations
Regular backups can protect your organization against a data-loss catastrophe. With Backup Exec, you can back up data from multiple sources in a centralized interface.
- Ease of use: An intuitive interface and wizards simplify installation, setup, backup, recovery, media management, disaster preparation, cluster installation, and agent configuration.
- Multiple-server backups: You can back up multiple servers at once, either as part of one backup definition or individually in separate definitions.
- Storage options: You can back up to nearly any storage device, including disk, tape, dedupe storage, or third-party cloud, including Amazon Web Services (AWS) Storage Gateway VTL.
- Block-level deduplication: Backup Exec deduplicates data across all backup jobs, including physical and virtual environments.
- Versatile recovery: You can recover virtual machines, applications, databases, files, folders, and granular objects directly from backup storage.
- Simplified Disaster Recovery technology: In the event of a disaster, Backup Exec can recover an entire server to the same or dissimilar hardware in minutes, not hours or days.

You can use an unlimited number of these agents within a network, allowing for multiple instances of agents to protect several servers.
