About the appliance
The NetBackup 5230 appliance and the Storage Shelf provide complete deduplication and backup solutions. This document describes the major hardware aspects of these devices. This document is available to the general public.
Table: Appliance features lists the features of the product.
Table: Appliance features
The deduplication engine provides up to 100 times reduction in storage. The client-side plug-in provides similar levels of bandwidth reduction.
Due to fingerprinting and RAID redundancy, the overall storage capabilities are not a simple multiplication of the disk size and the total number of disks.
Supports the redundant hot-swappable disks and power modules.
Provides separate out-of-band management network interfaces. You can remotely turn on, turn off, and reset appliances through the network.
Supports remotely configuring and managing the appliances through KVM over IP.
Supports the SNMP traps and automatically reports alarms.
Supports reporting the disk information through the out-of-band management channel.
System memory configuration (DIMMS)
64 GB, up to a maximum of 192 GBs
You can purchase additional 64-GB memory kits to maximize the amount of memory in the NetBackup 5230 Appliance. You can also use the memory kits to increase the appliance memory when you add an optional storage shelf to the system.
RAID 1 (standard mirroring) and RAID 6 (block level striping with double distributed parity) are used as follows:
The disk drives in the appliance are pre-formatted before the appliance is shipped. These drives should not be moved into different slots or otherwise rearranged.
