How CASO and the Shared Storage Option work together

The Backup Exec Central Admin Server Option (CAS) and the Shared Storage Option (SSO) can be used together to provide the following:

  • The ability to centrally monitor and manage multiple Backup Exec media servers with CASO.

  • The ability to share a centralized tape library for LAN-free backup between multiple Backup Exec media servers on a SAN with SSO.

Separate license keys can be purchased and entered for both CASO and SSO for installation on a Backup Exec media server. The CASO server and the SSO Primary server should be installed on the same Backup Exec media server to centrally manage all shared devices. Additional SSO licenses are required for each Backup Exec media server that shares the centralized device on the SAN.
