About configuring a Self Service solution
NetBackup Self Service allows service providers to offer self-service backup and restore to multiple customers, in a secure, and partitioned manner. In an enterprise environment, business units and project teams can perform self-service backup and restore.
Self Service restore functionality is enabled but additionally you can choose to provide self-service scheduled policy editing and support for on-demand Backup Now functionality.
All configuration data that is entered in NetBackup Self Service is considered case sensitive. It must match the associated data that is held in NetBackup.
The Self Service solution supports an inventory of assets and their owners.
You can populate the inventory multiple ways:
A source independent API
The Self Service portal
An import from vCloud Director
An import of cloud assets from NetBackup
Self Service supports a number of NetBackup Policy types. You can either use Self Service to manage all of a tenant's backup needs. This option allows tenants to create their own backup policies. Or you can configure Self Service to only provide restore services based on manually maintained backup policies.
A record of registered assets and their protection types, such as Windows, UNIX, VMware, etc., is maintained within Self Service.
The tenant user manages computer protection status and utilization with a full set of dashboard features. The tenant user can create changes to protection and restore.
