Doyenz announced that its cloud-based recovery technology was selected by Symantec to power the new Cloud DR Option available as part of Backup Exec 2012. The service enables customers to leverage Recovery as a Service (RaaS) for recovery of VMware environments in the cloud in less than 15 minutes.
“Close to two million customers worldwide trust in Symantec Backup Exec as part of their data protection strategy,” said Amit Walia, vice president, Information Management Group, Symantec. “The partnership with Doyenz demonstrates our commitment to delivering leading solutions by offering our customers a proven cloud-based approach to backup and recovery. Through this joint offering, customers can proactively prepare for disasters before they strike.”
Backup Exec 2012 is designed to help users eliminate complexity, perform backups in 100 percent virtualized environments, and deliver instantaneous and cloud-based recovery through a single solution. As part of the new release, Symantec transformed Backup Exec’s user interface and configurability to provide users with a significantly simpler experience.
Through integration with Doyenz’s cloud-based recovery technology, Symantec now offers the Backup Exec Cloud DR Option as part of the offering. This addition empowers customers to leverage RaaS in the cloud, whether they are managing planned or unexpected downtime.
The Doyenz solution enables recovery for VMware vSphere environments in the cloud in less than 15 minutes.

Additionally, with Doyenz Virtual Lab, businesses can proactively ensure the integrity of the disaster recovery environment by frequently testing it in the cloud.
