About storage solutions for backups to disk

This guide describes how to configure and use an intelligent disk appliance in NetBackup for backups. The disk appliance must conform to the Veritas OpenStorage API.

Information about how to configure and use NetBackup with snapshots on disk appliance storage is available in a different guide.
