NetBackup 6.5.x Cloud Storage for Nirvanix
Just a quick post today. Back at the end of August we announced our first cloud vendor partnership with Nirvanix. Basically it is an OpenStorage plugin that lets you create Storage Units that point to the Nirvanix cloud. Great for slotting in to Storage Lifecycle Policies to replace duplications to tape since duplicating to the cloud means the data is offsite already. The announcement was limited to NBU 7.0 and as much as we want everyone to be at the latest release there are a number of people who are still at 6.5.x. So this week on Tuesday we announced the Nirvanix OpenStorage plugin is available for NBU 6.5.4 and above. Talk to your friendly Symantec sales rep if you're interested since it's posted up on Symantec File Connect and ready for download.
