Footnotes

* For NetVault Backup v11.0 and v11.1, NetBackup v7.7 and v8.0, and CommVault Simpana v10 and v11 with NDMP: For NetApp C mode filers SVM-Scoped NDMP, backup is not supported. You need to use Node-Scoped NDMP backup.

The DR Rapid Air Gap solution has been implemented with NetVault 11.4.5 in DR Series system release 4.0.3.

Support for multi-initiators with NetVault 11.4.5 has been added for FC VTL in DR Series version 4.0.3.

** Requires DR Series system release 4.0.0274.0a or later for BE16 and NetBackup 8.0 support. With DR Series system release 4.0.3 it is possible to configure OST and VTL devices as Quest type. For Netbackup 8.0 to work with these devices, a mapping file needs to be installed. Contact Quest support for more details. Starting with BE 20, Quest OST and VTL devices are supported.

*** For Microsoft DPM: Only tape media of size 800 GB (LTO4) is supported. No other tape size should be used for backups. Refer to the Microsoft DPM best practices guide titled, Setting Up the DR Series System as a VTL Backup Target on Microsoft Data Protection Manager, on support.quest.com/DR-Series for more detailed information and for recommended tape and library drivers for iSCSI VTL.

**** Deduplication savings are based on the data backed up and the frequency of base and incremental backups.

NOTE: Supported Windows and Unix operating systems for the supported backup software versions can include:

  • Windows (2003, 2008, 2012, 2012 R2, 2016; 32-bit and 64-bit systems)
  • Unix (Linux RHEL 5.x, RHEL 6.x, RHEL 7.x, SUSE 10, SUSE 11, AIX 7.1, Solaris 10 x86; 32-bit and 64-bit systems)
