About uploading deduplicated data to the cloud using MSDP cloud
NetBackup 8.3 introduces MSDP cloud, a new cloud solution with the deduplication technology. Data is stored directly to cloud targets with deduplication.
One MSDP storage server can support both local storage and multiple cloud storage targets. After you configure the MSDP storage server, you can add a cloud storage target to that storage server and then the MSDP storage server can store data to cloud target.
You can use the following types of NetBackup media servers to configure MSDP cloud:
Veritas NetBackup Appliance
NetBackup media server
NetBackup 8.3 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux or CentOS
For information about the supported cloud vendors and features, refer to the NetBackup Master Compatibility Lists.
If your NetBackup setup contains one MSDP storage server, configure the MSDP storage server and add another cloud storage to that storage server. You can use the MSDP cloud feature in the following scenarios:
Create a disk pool and a storage unit using the cloud storage and back up the data directly to that cloud storage.
Create a disk pool and a storage unit using the cloud storage. Back up the data to the local MSDP storage server and then do an optimized deduplication to duplicate the data to the cloud storage.
For more information about configuration, administration, and troubleshooting, refer to the NetBackup 8.3 Deduplication Guide.
