Netbackup Dedup options for Vmware backups
We are running Netbackup version 188.8.131.52 and are planning to introduce dedup in our environment .We are also doing Vmware blib backups and will be testing dedup on them first .We are backing up around 500+ vm machines using Vstorage api on vsphere 5.0 .
We have allocated disk storage on one ouf our windows media server for testing dedup backups .Media server has 72G ram and 8 core processor ,4G backup nic.So can anybody let me know that should be used Media server deduplication or Client Dedup for vmware backups.....?
Have read somewhere that NetBackup Client Deduplication is a solution for Virtual machine backups but not able to find any docs supporting this or
any valueable points.Also on a lot of VM machines we dont have Netbackup client software installed .
