A good hard look at the Backup Exec 3600 Appliance

On the 27th of April 2013, the Backup Exec guys hosted another hangout, this time about their new Backup Exec 3600 Appliance.

This was a great hangout that really broke down what the 3600 appliance is and does.

Unfortunately there was a brief drop out of Google Hangouts for about 20 seconds at the 22:44 mark

My main take away from the whole thing was how easy it is to install and get backing up, 33 minutes! (and that includes 5 minutes for unpacking and 18 minutes for rebooting)

The hosts of the hangout are:

Matt Stephenson (@PackMatt73) Product Marketing Manager; Social Media
John Damon, Product Marketing Manager; Backup Exec 3600 Appliance
Michael Gallagher, Product Manager; Backup Exec 3600 Appliance
