STORServer announces replacement program for former Symantec Backup Exec Appliance customers

Symantec Backup Exec 3600 Appliance customers offered opportunity to evaluate their current backup environments free of charge

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Oct. 27, 2014) – In the wake of Symantec™ ending sales of its Backup Exec 3600 Appliance, STORServer® today announces its replacement program for Symantec Backup Exec appliance customers, offering a free assessment of their storage and hardware configurations.

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 Symantec Backup Exec appliance customers to utilize their existing hardware and storage in a STORServer Hybrid Appliance solution. The STORServer Hybrid Appliance is designed to use qualifying, customer–supplied hardware to provide a fully integrated STORServer solution.

The STORServer Hybrid Appliance solution efficiently backs up multiple operating systems and email applications plus supports most popular database platforms (requires optional database agents).

STORServer provides every customer the opportunity to try out a backup appliance risk-free with its 30-day money back guarantee.
