I am looking for some guidance with symantec backup exec 2012 I need to backup up and to be able to centrally manage from a console the following, apparently there an option to keep a warm copy of server so basically it backs up the data but also replicate to a 2nd virtual box as warm copy.

This is what we need to backup…need an idea of what options to ask for when gain a quote.

Warm backups are supported in the full version of Backup Exec 2012 so that's your starting point.

note: virtual machines are not officially included in the warm backup facility, only physical machines.
Apparently you can install the normal remote agent on a Virtual and try to fool, it into working, but you would be better using the correct virtual agent so you can backup the VM properly if possible.

Backup exec 2012 (full edition, not SBS)

include Agents:
AD agent
SQL agent
Exchange agent
10 remote agents (or 9 if you choose to use an existing server as your primary backup server)

As noted above, I also recommend getting the VM agent so you can properly deal with the existing VMs, but you could install the remote agent on them and treat them as physicals if you prefer.

I'd also recommend:
Advanced disk-based backup option (better backups of running systems)
Deduplication suite (lets you reduce the backup size and backup time)
