  1. What are the other examples of such devices?
  2. Difference between 5000 and 5200 series?

Have you tried to Google or search Symantec web site before posting here?
Or even this forum?

Start with this link:

Then follow the links to the 2 product families.


Data Domain is a totally separate 3rd party appliance sold by EMC that has its own OS and dedupe software. DD provides OST plugin to work with NBU. 
You cannot install Data Domain on NBU appliances.

Please check NBU HCL for NBU and 3rd party appliance support and features.

PS: You have previously asked about NBU Media Server Dedupe (which is used by the 52xx series) - please go through your older posts to refresh your memory...

Supporting Storage Foundation and VCS on Unix and Windows as well as NetBackup on Unix and Windows
