I got a big chuckle out of this screen shot sent in by a customer. If you look closely on the bottom, the buttons are unmistakeably the Opera web browser on the Nintendo Wii. The web page displayed is the main monitoring page of NetBackup Operations Manager, which allows you to monitor, manage and report on NetBackup servers at multiple versions located potentially located in multiple locations. This is fantastic, you can play a few tennis matches, then switch gears and start monitoring backup and restore operations. We don't formally test compatibility with Opera on Wii but I would like to point out that it's better to have NetBackup on Wii than NetBackup ennui ;)

When I talk to customers about  web interfaces, everyone brings up the simple use case of being in a remote situation where you need to take action or check on status without installing a bulky console application. NetBackup Operations Manager is tailored made for that situation.

Tennis is cool but will it also work with other supporting software like baseball or bowling?

I know the screen is small but could it be viewable by an iphone?

Also, will it work on a 52 inch LCD Hi-def television? If yes then do you have any suggestions how to get one approved on an expense report?

 

VERITAS ain't it the truth?

I'm the last person to ask about getting expenses approved. I'm the guy who is always last to fill out the paperwork. I wish I could help you with that.

I think it's very important to test compatibility with Opera on Wii and also on HDTV

Just best websites on the net

I turned in some of my reward points and got a Nintendo Wii.
Now I can be the cool NetBackup admin :-)
