Introduction to NetBackup applications for Flex Appliance

Veritas Flex Appliance is a customizable data management solution that lets you consolidate multiple applications on a single hardware platform. An application is a Veritas software program that can be installed on Flex Appliance. You can use these applications to create multiple, concurrent application instances, or single deployments of applications that were historically standalone servers.

The following applications are available for NetBackup release 8.1.2:

  • NetBackup master server

    You can also configure a BMR master server with this application. However, the BMR boot server cannot be configured on the appliance.

  • NetBackup media server with the following storage options:

    • Media Server Deduplication Pool (MSDP)

    • AdvancedDisk

    • Cloud Catalyst


    You cannot use both MSDP and Cloud Catalyst storage in the same application instance.
