understanding NBU and plugins

i'm trying to understand how all the different components fit together for NetBackup. if this is not the place, kindly point me where should i post.

years ago, backup is composed of the following:

  • backup software
  • plugins (to handle open files) like for sqlserver
  • tape drive (either single or tape library)

that was fine. now comes NetBackup and PureDisk and MSDP and NetBackup Appliance and NetBackup realtime and so on.

from this thread, it is my understanding that NetBackup and PureDisk does the same thing: backup and deduplication. and we bought both of them!

can someone please clarify (maybe provide a block diagram) of how NetBackup and PureDisk fits (or not fit).
