Zetta.net Announces Cloud Backup Migration for Symantec Backup Exec.Cloud 
Customers Affected by Surprise Shutdown 
Up to 6 Months Free Enterprise-Grade Cloud Backup Service and 20% off
Annual Contracts 
SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/29/13 --  Zetta.net today
announced a migration offer for businesses affected by Symantec
Corp.'s shutdown of Backup Exec.Cloud.  
According to Symantec, service providers will no longer be able to
sell Backup Exec.Cloud subscription licenses or renewals for Backup
Exec.cloud as of January 6, 2014. Existing customers will be able to
utilize the product until the end of service availability on January
6, 2015 or the end of their current term (whichever comes first).
After January 6, 2015, customers and partners will not have access to
the service, data or technical support.(1) 
The offer by Zetta.net enables Symantec Backup Exec.Cloud customers
to apply the unused balance of their service -- up to 6 months -- to
Zetta's award-winning enterprise-grade cloud backup & DR service --
free of charge -- in addition to a 20% discount on an annual cloud
backup contract. 
"Symantec Backup Exec and Backup Exec.Cloud customers have endured
one jarring surprise after another," said Zetta.net VP of Marketing
Gary Sevounts. "First Backup Exec 2012 was released to universally
negative reviews, then patches were released that didn't provide
support for mainstream platforms like Windows Server 2012, and now
the cloud backup component is being shut down. Stability is a
fundamental pillar of enterprise backup, and it is critical for
backup vendors to give business customers confidence their critical
backup data will be available for recovery," said Sevounts. 
Zetta's patent pending cloud backup technology is focused on
performance, and enables customers to protect data sets from 1TB to
100TB, and backup and recover up to 5TB in 24 hours directly to or
from the cloud. All customer data is encrypted, in transit across the
internet and at rest in the data center, using 256-bit SSL and
Salsa20 encryption. Zetta's enterprise-grade cloud backup and DR
service is HIPAA and ITAR compliant, SSAE-16 audited, and delivers
99.99996% backup reliability and 100% recovery reliability. 24x7
US-based, engineer-level technical support is included, enabling
Zetta customers to enjoy overall backup costs that are up to 50%
lower than Symantec Backup Exec. 
Zetta is seeing 247% YoY growth, an industry-leading 99% retention
rate, and currently has 650+ enterprise customers & MSPs. 
Zetta is happy to extend an offer to existing Backup Exec and Backup
Exec.Cloud customers to bring true enterprise-grade cloud backup
performance and security along with an easy to master user interface
that's simple to deploy and manage from anywhere. Data can be
recovered 4 ways: from the cloud through a mapped network drive, the
ZettaMirror software agent, or a web browser -- with recovery from
local storage an option for non-disaster recoveries. There is no
appliance hardware to buy. 
Current Symantec customers interested in migrating data from Backup
Exec and Backup Exec.Cloud products to Zetta.net's DataProtect
solution should submit a request for contact or custom pricing to the
company.
