• Granular application objects

Backup Exec lets you recover a virtual machine instantly without waiting to transfer the virtual machine’s data from a backup set. Backup Exec starts the instantly recovered virtual machine directly from the backup set and users can access it on the ESX/Hyper-V host immediately. The startup time depends on the network speed and storage speed and not on the size of the virtual machine. You can use an instantly recovered virtual machine for all operations that you can do on a virtual machine. For more information about this feature, see “About instant recovery of a VMware virtual machine” and ‘About instant recovery of a Hyper-V virtual machine’ in the Backup Exec 15 Administrator’s Guide.
