BackUp Exec is the bread-and-butter product on the 2007 Best of the Tests roster. While the category itself is not glitzy,
all network data needs backup. “Backup Exec pays a great deal of attention to detailing the type of data to be backed up
(files, directories, partitions, snapshots, entire systems), and this effort pays administrators and users back by giving
them extremely flexible restoration options,” tester Tom Henderson says.
Symantec last month released an enterprise backup reporting tool, called Backup Reporter that works with its Veritas NetBackup
and BackUp Exec products to help verify backup service-level compliance.
