Yey!!! I passed my Veritas Enterprise Sales Specialist exam.
Veritas...opsss....Symantec Veritas is one of the leading backup solution in the world. What we learn at the training, is who to call (from Veritas) when we are stumped, how to approach the customers, what are the strength of the solution, how to propose the various solutions (man, there are many applications based on different network configurations) and how to calculate the licenses required.
There are backup solutions from LAN-based network to WAN-based. From the training (prior to the exam), I can see that the reason why Symantec acquired Veritas. It is so that they can propose end-to-end solution to the customer.
I had been approached by customers that asked whether 'X' solution can backup their data when the data is infected? Issue is, some customers do want their data to be backed up even thought it had been infected, while some others do not. As a vendor, I need to follow the requirements set by the customer. As long as the solution can give what the customer wants, I'm happy with it. However, sometimes we need to educate the customer too. Come on lah, vendor maaaa. Kena lah jadik tenaga pengajar skets. ;)

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
