Symantec, CA Release Recovery Apps

Symantec's Backup Exec 12 is on the market; the company calls it the first backup application certified for Windows Server 2008. Backup Exec System Recovery 8 is out there, too.

The security giant has also popped out Symantec Solutions for Windows, which has a strong SaaS flavor. And, while we're at it, Symantec has SaaS versions of Online Backup and Online Storage for Backup Exec available, as well. In other news, Symantec's press release writer is recovering nicely from a recent bout of carpal tunnel syndrome.

And, in case you missed it, Symantec rival CA released new recovery management software earlier this month. And you might have missed it, as this is the first time this news has appeared in RCPU.
