Title: Symantec Backup Exec 2014 Performance Evaluation versus Symantec Backup Exec 2010

Publication date:   20 November 2014
Document number:    214133


Optimizing backup operations and reducing back-end storage via deduplication provide benefits that are both immediate and lasting. Symantec’s continuous development and investment in Backup Exec provides increased performance and contributes to improved operational efficiency.

Symantec commissioned Tolly to benchmark Symantec Backup Exec 2014 and compare key performance benchmarks with a predecessor version, Symantec Backup Exec 2010. Testing encompassed initial and incremental backup of Windows physical and virtual servers, as well as specialized application environments of Microsoft Exchange 2010 and Microsoft SQL Server 2012. Testing also evaluated deduplication which is critically important in virtualized environments.

Tests show that the short-term effort of upgrading results in long-term benefits of greater operational efficiency from the perspectives of both time and storage optimization.
