Manufacturer’s Description

Backup Exec NT/2000 8.5 is a storage solution for Windows NT and Windows2000 operating systems. Backup Exec is a high-performance, easy-to-use, flexible backup solution. Built-in wizards simplify common operations, making Backup Exec a tool that is easy the less technical user, yet powerful enough for the more advanced user. The familiar Explorer-like interface allows users to take full advantage of tabbed dialogs, property sheets, tool tips, and right-click context-sensitive menus. Wizards guide the user through many common tasks, offering flexibility in configuration, media rotation, device sharing, and disaster recovery. New features such as the Windows Explorer integration and one-button backup offer "express" method backup of the entire server or a selected resource (server, directory, drive, folder, file). A unique Backup Exec Assistant streamlines startup, system configuration, job scheduling, and other routine tasks. Backup Exec provides full protection of the operating system, including Active Directory, Distributed File System, and the new NTFS structure and System State components. It offers centralized management with the Backup Exec Network Storage Executive option (sold separately), allowing you to centrally manage multiple Backup Exec servers from one console utilizing backup policies and backup server pooling. Backup Exec pre-scans for viruses and cleans files, including zip files, before backup. Standard Autoloader Support is also included. This maximizes backup performance and minimizes administration of single-drive/unlimited-slot autoloaders. Support for multidrive libraries can be added via the Backup Exec Library Expansion Option (sold separately). Performance Optimization increases performance and reduces network traffic and backup time using Veritas's exclusive Agent Accelerator technology (sold separately), with distributed processing and source compression. Support for Network Attached Storage (NAS) expands data protection for these new data storage appliances. Support for Storage Area Networks (SAN) improves utilization of tape hardware in SANs, which lowers the overall cost of ownership associated with backup.
