ABC wants BackupExec 2010, sticks with NetBackup 6.5

Simon Sharwood

Symantec launched NetBackup 7 and BackpExec 2010 in late January, and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) is sticking with older versions of the former product but taking the plunge with the 2010 version of the latter.

The ABC yesterday tendered for NetBackup and BackupExec  software, plus maintenance for the products.

The tender covers Windows and Unix, includes software for backup and recovery. Several licenses specified are upgrades, suggesting the ABC is expanding its use of Symantec's products.

Tenderers are required to be Platinum Symantec partners and have a "nationwide" presence. 

The products requested under the tender comprise:
