Veritas Backup Exec™ is simple, secure, and universal data protection. The user can choose what to include in the backup, where to store it, and how to pay. Data will be protected and available at every stage: when backing up local resources to the cloud, when protecting applications in the cloud, when restoring from the cloud, and when connecting to storage in the corporate network. The Backup Exec product can be purchased with a permanent license or by subscription. There are three levels of functionality: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Bronze contains only the most necessary functions and is suitable for simple configurations. The Silver version contains all frequently used features. The Gold version includes all the functions and components of Backup Exec. The cost of the license is calculated based on the amount of data to be backed up, or on the number of protected instances. You can purchase any number of licenses with any level of functionality.
