Disk pool creation!!

 

Do i need license to create disk pool?

 

What feature does this support…? Please suggest something about PURE and Advance disk.

How to implement this?

What is more beneficial for small backups?

    About configuring disk pool storage

    You can configure disk pools if you license a NetBackup feature that uses disk pools.

    For more information, see the NetBackup online Help or the following guides:

    The NetBackup Deduplication Guide.

    The NetBackup Shared Storage Guide.

     

    and

     

    An AdvancedDisk disk type storage unit is used for a dedicated disk that is directly

    attached to a NetBackup media server. An AdvancedDisk selection is available only

    when the Flexible Disk Option is licensed.

     

    and

     

    A PureDisk disk type storage unit is used to store deduplicated data

    PureDisk appears as a selection when the NetBackup Deduplication Option or the

    PureDisk Storage Option is licensed.

  • Different backup disk types use disk pools, such as Advanced Disk, OST, and MDSP.

    All of these require additional licensing. Best to discuss licensing requirements with your Symantec reseller.

    In the meantime, you can download manuals and start reading....
