NetBackup Accelerator - is this SYMC version of EMC DDBoost ?
- The Accelerator is used as deduplication process transfered to the client ... so something as Client Side Deduplication.
- DDBoost from EMC, allows the Media Server to handle the deduplication process in order to reduce bandwidth between the Media Server and the Data Domain Appliance, in the condition the Media Server is not already overloaded (CPU and RAM).
So, is the Accelerator compatible with an OST DDBoost environment ?
Can it be used on a NAS ? I never thought there was any client installed on a filer when doing NDMP backup, nor in Direct to Tape, nor in Remote NDMP ... (no client, so no accelerator)
What do you say .
