Deploying NetVault Backup

About deploying NetVault Backup

In a NetVault Backup setup, one machine is configured as the NetVault Backup Server and various other machines that you want to protect function as NetVault Backup Clients. A single server and its associated clients form a NetVault Backup Domain.

The following diagram depicts a NetVault Backup deployment.

NetVault Backup components

A NetVault Backup deployment consists of the following components:

The NetVault Backup Server provides the core services for protecting your data.

The server provides services such as schedule management, job management, device management, media management, user management, notification management, and log management. The server administers backup and restore jobs for all assigned clients. Various types of physical and virtual storage devices can be locally attached to the server.

The NetVault Backup Server can run on Windows and Linux operating systems.

The NetVault Backup Client is installed on machines that you want to protect using the NetVault Backup solution. These machines can be file servers, database servers, email servers, application servers, and workstations.

The NetVault Backup Clients are assigned to a NetVault Backup Server, which manages all data protection operations for the clients. A single server and its associated clients form a NetVault Backup Domain. A NetVault Backup SmartClient license is required to attach physical or virtual storage devices locally to a NetVault Backup Client.

The NetVault Backup Client can run on AIX, FreeBSD, HP-UX, Linux, Mac OS X, Solaris, and Windows operating systems.

The NetVault Backup Plug-ins are used to protect various applications and data stored on the server and client machines. There are two categories of NetVault Backup plug-ins: built-in plug-ins and licensed plug-ins.

The built-in plug-ins are packaged with the NetVault Backup software, and automatically installed on the respective machines when you install the NetVault Backup Server and Client software.

NetVault Backup offers the following types of built-in plug-ins:

NetVault Backup Plug-in for FileSystem (Plug-in for FileSystem): The Plug-in for FileSystem protects critical file system data, and minimizes downtime by allowing you to restore full volumes, individual partitions, or individual directories and files quickly and reliably with minimal interaction.
NetVault Backup Plug-in for Consolidation (Plug-in for Consolidation): The Plug-in for Consolidation lets you create a composite saveset by combining a Full Backup and its associated Incremental Backups. You can use this consolidated saveset as the base for subsequent Incremental Backups. The Plug-in for Consolidation does not back up data from a client; it just creates a composite set from existing savesets.
NetVault Backup Plug-in for Data Copy (Plug-in for Data Copy): The Plug-in for Data Copy lets you create one or more copies of backups for off-site storage and disaster recovery purposes. The Plug-in for Data Copy does not back up data from a client; it just creates a copy of an existing backup.
NetVault Backup Plug-in for Databases (Plug-in for Databases): The Plug-in for Databases protects system data (such as configuration files, system settings, backup indexes, backup media information, job schedule, license keys, and other data) stored in the NetVault Database. You can use this backup to recover a functional NetVault Backup Server after a failure.
NetVault Backup Plug-in for Raw Devices (Plug-in for Raw Devices): The Plug-in for Raw Devices protects data stored on physical disks. The plug-in lets you recover the Master Boot Record (MBR), system partitions, and individual user partitions from a point-and-click user interface without writing any complex scripts.
Quest NetVault Backup Plug-in for Rapid Data Access (Plug-in for RDA): The Plug-in for RDA lets you use the client-side and inline deduplication capabilities that are available in other products, such as the Quest DR Series system of deduplication appliances and the software-defined Quest QoreStor storage devices (Linux only).

For more information about built-in plug-ins, see the Quest NetVault Backup Plug-in for FileSystem User’s Guide and Quest NetVault Backup Built-in Plug-ins User’s Guide.

The licensed plug-ins are available as separate products, and installed on the NetVault Backup Server and Client machines to protect specific applications and appliances.

NetVault Backup offers the following types of licensed plug-ins:

Plug-ins for applications: These plug-ins provide data protection to business-critical applications, such as Oracle, SQL Server, Exchange, SharePoint, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Domino, DB2, Informix, SAP, and Sybase.
Plug-ins for NDMP-based NAS appliances: These plug-ins enable NDMP-based backups and restores for appliances that support this protocol. NetVault Backup also offers specialized plug-ins that integrate the NetApp SnapMirror, SnapVault, and Snapshot technologies to provide advanced data protection to NetApp appliances.
Plug-ins for virtual environments: These plug-ins provide data protection to virtual machines in VMware and Hyper-V environments.
Plug-ins for backup encryption: These plug-ins provide support for CAST-128, AES-256, and CAST-256 algorithms to meet regulatory backup security requirements.
Plug-ins for device integration: These plug-ins enable configuration of specialized tape libraries for use in a NetVault Backup environment.
Plug-ins for bare metal recovery: These plug-ins let you recover an entire system, including the operating system, applications, system settings, partition information, and data on supported Windows and Linux operating systems.

NetVault Backup also offers cluster-aware versions of various plug-ins that enable data protection for distributed data.

For more information about the licensed plug-ins, see the respective plug-in user’s guide.

NetVault Backup offers a web-based user interface, called the NetVault Backup WebUI, to configure, manage, and monitor your NetVault Backup system.

You can use the NetVault Backup WebUI to perform various tasks such as the following:

You can access the NetVault Backup WebUI from any standard browser. You can use the WebUI to remotely administer a NetVault Backup Server from any system on which you can run a supported web browser and connect to the server over HTTP or HTTPS.

NetVault Backup also provides a Command Line Interface that allows you to configure and manage a NetVault Backup system from a command prompt window or terminal window.

You can use the NetVault Backup CLI utilities to perform various tasks such as the following:

The NetVault Backup command-line utilities can be accessed from the NetVault Backup Server and Client machines. For more information about the command-line interface, see the Quest NetVault Backup Command Line Interface Reference Guide.
