Veritas BackuExec backup is a data protection solution aimed at customers who have a mixeture of physical and virtual environments, or those who are making the move to public cloud services.

Recovery Without Vendor


BackupExec data can be recovered using Tranzman,   Tranzman can restore data from without needing the original backup software. Tranzman can read disk and tape media, importing the meta-data into its own internal index.

Tranzman currently supports the following BackupExec data types.

  • Linux Filesystems
  • Windows Filesystems
  • Exchange
  • MS SQL
  • Oracle
  • SharePoint
  • Enterprise Vault

Cross Vendor Transitioning


BackupExec will soon be added to the list backup products that Tranzman can migrate from.

Currently there are no planns to add BackupExec to the list of products Tranzman can migrate to, this doesn't mean that Tranzman can't be used to help transition to BackupExec, just that the full meta-data ingestion into BackupExec is not possible.  Tranzman can still be used to index, and recovery other origins data using the "Recovery Without Vendor" option allowing for legacy backup products to be decomissioned.
