Configuring a Remote Agent for Deduplication

You can set up a remote computer to allow backup data to be sent directly to an OpenStorage device or a deduplication storage folder. The remote computer must have the Remote Agent for Windows Systems installed on it. For direct access to a third-party OpenStorage device, the vendor plug-in for the device must also be installed. The appropriate plug-in for a Symantec PureDisk device is included in the Remote Agent for Windows Systems, so no additional plug-in is required.

Note:

The option to configure a Remote Agent for Deduplication appears only if you have already configured an OpenStorage device or a deduplication storage folder.
