Symantec Corp. today announced the immediate availability of a partner-only beta release of Backup Exec 2012  and Backup Exec 2012 Small Business Edition. Open to Symantec’s community of channel partners, the beta release will provide partners in the Middle East early access to one of Symantec’s market leading backup and recovery solutions and give them the opportunity to shape the final product.
“Symantec is committed to providing our partners with early access to our solutions and ensuring they work closely with us to successfully bring them to market,” said Ramzi Itani, Regional Channel & Alliance Director MENA. “We're excited about the upcoming release of Backup Exec 2012 and encourage our partners to test it out and give us their valuable feedback.

The mainstream use of virtualization, Data explosion and a 24/7 business model have created a significant backup challenge for IT organizations. With the release of Backup Exec 2012 beta, Symantec will help eliminate backup complexity through a single solution that unifies virtual and physical, deduplication, and replication while offering a choice among on-premise software, appliance, or cloud delivery models that best fits an organization’s needs. No other single vendor provides this level of choice for customers and partners.
