Speed diffrence in NBU 6 and 7.5

Created: 21 May 2013 • Updated: 23 Jul 2013 | 5 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

We have recently upgraded our NBU from 6 to 7.5.

As per the discussion with S/W vendor "a new technology has been added up which will double the R/W speed." But i dont find much diffrence between.

Can any one help in accelerating this process.

 

Thanks in advance

Your vendor was probably talking about NetBackup Accelerator - a feature that is built into NBU dedupe.

So, if you don't have NBU Media Server dedupe or Appliance, you cannot enable Accelerator and will not see a difference.

You can use Accelerator to Cloud based storage too.

Hi Marianne,

Can you please suggest us, how we can make the best use of NBU 7.5.

The data whic i need to take backup resides on a NAS server, Presently we are running few incremental backup.

But the major data in NAS and need to be cleared off with 2 sets of full backup. Here we are facing problem with backup windows.

Is it possile to have flashbackup whic will decrease backup window by 50%.

 

 

Thanks in advance

Speak to your reseller about NetBackup Media Server Deduplication or a NetBackup Appliance.

The above two options will allow you to use Accelerator to backup the NAS as NFS or CIFS share.
