About MSDP cloud support
In this release, NetBackup MSDP cloud support is enhanced to provide a flexible, scalable, high performing, and easy to configure solution, that enables you to leverage cloud storage more efficiently.
Here are the highlights of this feature:
One MSDP storage server can be configured to support multiple storage targets, including one local storage target and zero or more cloud storage targets. You can move data to local and multiple cloud targets simultaneously.
The cloud targets can be from the same or different providers, either public, or private. For example, AWS, Azure, HCP, etc.
The cloud targets can be added on demand after the MSDP server is configured and active.
Multiple cloud targets can coexist in a single cloud bucket or multiple buckets that are distributed in a single or different cloud providers.
The data and metadata for local storage and multiple cloud targets are isolated to support Multiple Tenant usage.
Optimized deduplication is supported within one MSDP server scope so that data can be stored to local storage first and then duplicated to cloud targets in the same media server.
Disaster recovery from the cloud targets is enhanced and more straightforward.
Feature is well integrated with the MSDP cluster solution.
Based on the OpenStorage Technology (OST), the new architecture uses multiple Logical storage unit (LSU) to manage and move data. These LSUs can be customized independently to meet different customer requirements. For example, as pure local target (same as MSDP in NetBackup 8.2 or earlier), or local target plus one or more cloud targets.
Starting with NetBackup 8.3, you can configure MSDP from the NetBackup Web UI. You can refer to the NetBackup Web UI documentation for more details.
This chapter focuses on how to use the command line interface to configure MSDP.
To enable OCSD logging information or MSDP cloud, add loglevel=3 in the section [Symantec/PureDisk/OpenCloudStorageDaemon] in /etc/pdregistry.cfg on media server and restart the services.
