About backup strategies

A backup strategy is the collection of procedures you implement for backing up your network, including what methods of backups are performed, when backups are performed, and how media is rotated back into use for your regular backups. A good backup strategy allows minimal time to get a system up and running in the event of a disaster.

Backup Exec offers flexible solutions for protecting the data on your network. Use the media rotation feature and let Backup Exec do all the administrative work for you, or design and manage your own media rotation strategy, the procedures for reusing media, that meets your exact specifications.

You can create backup job templates that define your backup strategy, and then reuse the templates to implement your strategy for all resources being protected by your media server.
