Veritas dispone de múltiples agentes para Backup Exec para la realización de copias de seguridad específicas, así como su restauración relacionada.
The Backup Exec Agent for VMware and Hyper-V provides comprehensive protection of VMware and Hyper-V virtual machines through integration with Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) and VMware’s vStorage APIs for Data Protection (VADP). Additionally, by executing post-processing tasks that do not impact the backup window, such as log truncation, collection of metadata, and searchable catalogs, Backup Exec delivers highly optimized backup and Instant Recovery of data directly from storage.
The Backup Exec Agent for Applications and Databases provides market-leading data protection for Exchange, SQL, SharePoint, Active Directory, Oracle, and Veritas Enterprise Vault in a virtual or physical environment.
The Backup Exec Agent for Windows provides high-performance data protection for remote Windows servers and includes Open File protection and Simplified Disaster Recovery. This Agent optimizes data transfers for 32-bit and 64-bit remote Windows servers with NDMP technology that also provides source-level compression and distributed processing at the client.
The Backup Exec Agent for Linux provides high-performance protection for remote 32-bit and 64-bit Linux servers with support for both Intel and AMD 32-bit and 64-bit processors. This agent extends the Backup Exec advanced agent technology to Linux operating systems by providing full, incremental, and differential backup support, restore capabilities, and client-side deduplication for supported distributions of Linux.
Please note: For data deduplication, the Deduplication Option needs to be licensed separately or it comes included with the full Capacity Edition or V-Ray Edition.
The Backup Exec Remote Media Agent for Linux Server provides storage flexibility for Linux servers running in a Backup Exec environment. IT administrators can directly attach tape and disk storage devices to a remote Linux server, allowing backup data to be protected directly to those Linux-attached storage devices. This provides added flexibility and reduced bandwidth requirements for backup jobs, especially for larger backups on those remote Linux servers.
