On Oct. 10, Symantec announced the discontinuation of its Backup Exec 3600 appliance effective Jan. 5, 2015. During STORServer's limited-time replacement program, the company is offering to have its professionally certified consultants perform a free assessment for Symantec customers to see if the Backup Exec system is running smoothly and determine if it can be reconfigured to function better.
As the original provider of the 'appliance' approach to data protection, StorServer is also enabling Backup Exec appliance customers to utilize their existing hardware and storage in a StorServer hybrid appliance solution. It is designed to use qualifying, customer-supplied hardware to provide a fully integrated STORServer solution.
The hybrid appliance solution backups multiple OSs and email applications plus supports popular database platforms (requires optional database agents). Backups and restores can take place across all network connections (NAS, SAN, LAN, WAN) from hundreds of storage devices.
StorServer provides every customer the opportunity to try out a backup appliance risk-free with its 30-day money back guarantee.
