BANGALORE: Veritas Software India today announced that Microsoft Corporation has successfully completed the Vearitas beta program for the next release of Veritas Backup Exec Windows Servers, leading backup and restore software for Windows environments.

As the creator of Windows, Microsoft is not only a key industry partner, but also a customer, having standardized on Veritas for data protection since 1999. Today, Microsoft in India, along with the many other Microsoft offices around the world, efficiently protects and manages hundreds of terabytes of critical data with Veritas backup Exec software.

As part of a robust beta program to test and ensure that Backup Exec software meets and exceeds the needs of Veritas customers, Microsoft tested new functionality including simplified, centralized monitoring and management for distributed backup servers and remote offices. The improved ability to manage distributed backup servers is key, as Microsoft continues to face exponential data growth as the company with the world's largest deployment of Windows.

With Veritas Backup Exec software, Microsoft (India) Pvt. Ltd protects its internal IT,Exchange Server 2003, Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2003.

"At Microsoft, we use Backup Exec primarily to gain enterprise scalability and the ability to easily backup our data for offsite archive and protection," said Mr Pankaj Ukey, Marketing Manager-Windows Server, Microsoft (India) Pvt. Ltd. "We are particularly excited to see the rich features and functionality of Backup Exec 10. "

"This is quite a testament to how well Veritas BackupExec solution supports Microsoft environments," added Mr Ukey. "Microsoft's use of BackupExec for their production servers is an absolute validation for any users questioning the functionality and level of support that Veritas can provide to protect data in a Windows environment.''
