MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA: Veritas Technologies, a provider of information management solutions, announces the release of Feature Pack 5 for Backup Exec 15. Backup Exec 15 is a data protection solution for mid-sized organizations, providing powerful, flexible, and easy-to-use backup and recovery for IT infrastructure.
Backup Exec 15, being compatible to any kind of virtual, physical or cloud platform, is a simple solution to transfer data to cloud for backup within a limited period of time. With its intelligent instant recovery system, it reduces the time, effort and complexity of restoring virtual machines on VMware and Microsoft environments. The solution allows administrators to restart a virtual machine directly from the backup set and need not mount and transfer the data set first.

This allows organizations to quickly and easily use their own cloud storage servers as a target for backups. With the S3 connector, working perfectly with storage appliances built with Cloudian HyperStore, Backup Exec 15 shall be able to record all metadata of information sent to and stored on the Cloudian HyperStore. Backup Exec 15 can also be used to help organizations meet policy requirements for providing secure access to the data and manage all the external backup sets.
