Today, we are announcing support for Symantec Backup Exec 15 with AWS Storage Gateway-Virtual Tape Library (VTL). You can now backup and archive directly to scalable, cost-effective, secure Amazon S3 and Amazon Glacier storage using Gateway-VTL with Backup Exec 15. For the complete list of supported backup applications and to get started, see the AWS Storage Gateway-VTL User Guide.

Also, AWS Storage Gateway is now included on the Symantec Hardware Compatibility Lists (HCLs). The Backup Exec Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) includes both disk and tape targets for AWS Storage Gateway-Cached and Gateway-VTL respectively, while the NetBackup Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) includes AWS Storage Gateway-VTL. This support applies to new and existing gateways that were created or updated as of the December 16, 2014 AWS Storage Gateway maintenance update.
