We are planning to upgrade our current 2008 R2 Hyper-v hosts to new servers, running Windows 2012 R2.
Our current Backup software Symantec Backup Exec, even on the latest version (2012) does not support Windows 2012 R2 and won't until at least September 2014.
I wondered -
a) is there any point in going to Windows 2012 R2 for the host server or should I just do Windows 2012?
b) If I do go to Windows 2012 R2 does anyone have recommendations of a backup solution - the windows inbuilt backup software or any others?
