The final of Backup Exec 11d will be available on the 6th of November. It will support backups of Microsoft Exchange and SQL Server. I tested the CDP component of Backup Exec 10d a while ago and I liked it better than Microsoft's DPM 2006. Both companies offer new versions now and it seems that Symantec is a bit faster since there is only Beta 1 of DPM v2 available at the moment. I am currently testing DPM v2 and I'll report about it here soon. I certainly will also try Backup Exec 11d. We were about to introduce Symantec's CDP solution, but I decided to postpone this until I tested the new versions of both tools.

    I know this is an OLD blurb, but it’s July 2008, and Symantec still has yet to give users the ability to swap external USB/Firewire HD (akin to tapes). If they can’t ‘solve’ this little quirk…!
