Configuring storage devices

About storage devices

NetVault supports a wide range of devices for storing backups. The supported devices include disk-based storage devices, deduplication appliances, physical tape libraries, autoloaders, tape drives, Virtual Tape Libraries (VTLs), and Shared Virtual Tape Libraries (SVTLs).

You can attach the storage devices to the NetVault Server, Clients, or NAS filers in a NetVault Domain. The physical storage devices can be configured for single or shared use, and connected through SCSI, iSCSI, IP, SAS, or Fiber Channel SAN interfaces. A NetVault SmartClient license is required to attach physical or virtual storage devices locally to a NetVault Client.

To use a storage device in a backup or restore operation, you must first add the device to the NetVault Domain. A device attached to a NetVault Client is only recognized after you add the client to the NetVault Server. Similarly, a device attached to a filer is only recognized after you add the filer to the server using NetVault Plug-in for NDMP (Plug-in for NDMP).
