Veritas Backup Exec is backup and recovery software that runs on Windows Server. With the agents and options included, it can back up Windows, Mac, and Linux computers and virtual machines.


This donation provides one license for Veritas Backup Exec 21. One Backup Exec license allows the Backup Exec server to back up any number of devices. Only one license is required per organization.

Benefits for Organisations:

Regular backups can protect your organisation against a data-loss catastrophe. With Backup Exec, you can back up data from multiple sources in a centralised interface.


Major Capabilities:

  • Ease of use: An intuitive interface and wizards simplify installation, setup, backup, recovery, media management, disaster preparation, cluster installation, and agent configuration.
  • Multiple-server backups: You can back up multiple servers at once, either as part of one backup definition or individually in separate definitions.
  • Storage options: You can back up to nearly any storage device, including disk, tape, dedupe storage, or third-party cloud, including Amazon Web Services (AWS) Storage Gateway VTL.
  • Block-level deduplication: Backup Exec deduplicates data across all backup jobs, including physical and virtual environments.
  • Versatile recovery: You can recover virtual machines, applications, databases, files, folders, and granular objects directly from backup storage.
  • Simplified Disaster Recovery technology: In the event of a disaster, Backup Exec can recover an entire server to the same or dissimilar hardware in minutes, not hours or days.


Agents and Options:

Agents and options extend platform and feature support for Backup Exec environments. You can use an unlimited number of these agents  within a network, allowing for multiple instances of agents to protect several servers.
