Specialist distributor, Workgroup, has announced the local availability of Symantec’s Backup Exec System Recovery 8.

“System Recovery 8 is a complete, disk-based system recovery solution for Microsoft Windows based servers, desktops and laptops that allow businesses to recover from system loss or disasters in minutes – not hours or days,” says Grant van Eck, Symantec product manager at Workgroup. “This is even to dissimilar hardware platforms, virtual environments or in remote, unattended locations.”
Version 8 offers flexible offsite protection and enhanced recovery capabilities enabling offsite copy to FTP locations or secondary disk drives. The in-depth granular recovery of Exchange, SharePoint, or files and folders from a single interface allows for simple, seamless conversion of physical systems to virtual environments.
Another key feature to the upgrade is the multi-product integration with other well-patronised technologies. In addition to offering event-triggered backups based on Symantec ThreatCon security monitoring and centrally managed system backups with Altiris Notification Server, Backup Exec System Recovery also comprehensively complements Symantec Backup Exec for Windows Servers.
