Flex Appliance 1.3 new features, enhancements, and changes
The following list describes the new features, enhancements, and changes in the Flex Appliance 1.3 release:
The Flex Appliance 1.3 release supports the new Veritas 5150 Appliance.
The 5150 appliance is a compact appliance designed for constrained environments. It includes a total of 14 TB of usable backup capacity and consists of one 1U node.
See the Veritas 5150 Appliance Product Description and the Veritas 5150 Appliance Hardware Installation Guide for more information.
You can now install Flex Appliance updates in addition to upgrades. While an upgrade installs a new version of the Flex Appliance software, an update modifies the existing version. An update release is primarily comprised of fixes, though it may also include enhancements.
Veritas recommends that you install updates and upgrades when available to make sure that you have the latest product features and fixes.
Starting with this release, you can install emergency engineering binaries (EEBs) and Veritas-provided plug-ins on NetBackup instances. The Repository page includes a new Application add-ons tab where you can add the add-ons, and you can install and manage them from the instance details page.
You can now create and manage bonds from the Flex Appliance Console.
