Symantec Backup Exec 2012 Deduplication Option (with 1 Year Essential Support)
Easily reduce data backup storage by 10:1 while optimizing network utilization across physical and virtual environments with the Symantec Backup Exec 2012 Deduplication Option. Unlike other solutions, it provides an integrated and customizable deduplication offering to optimize any backup strategy with client deduplication (deduplicates data at the source or remote server), media server deduplication (deduplicates data at media server), or appliance deduplication (integrates with OpenStorage deduplication appliances). In addition, when used with the Enterprise Server Option, deduplicated backups can also be replicated efficiently over WAN environments to another Backup Exec Media server (deduplicates data from remote offices to headquarters) providing a solution that will adapt to any environment. Whether you deduplicate at the client, media server or appliance, Backup Exec can deduplicate across all backup jobs including physical and virtual backups at the same time delivering superior deduplication capabilities.
