Does Backup Exec support backing-up k8s resources?

I am checking whether BackupExec support backing-up Kubernetes (k8s) resources (application, persistent volume, namespace, etc.).

 

I checked the datasheet and whitepapers and other documents about Backup Exec latest version 21,

https://www.veritas.com/protection/backup-exec

But I could not find any mention of k8s support.

 

On the other hand, I found NetBackup's documents mentioned k8s support. Just not found in Backup Exec's documents.

https://www.veritas.com/content/dam/Veritas/docs/comparison-charts/V1067_GA_ENT_DS_PROTECTION_NBU-Co...

 

So, I would like to know, does Backup Exec support backing-up k8s resources? Or I should choose NetBackup?

 

Is there any official Veritas document comparing the features of Backup Exec and NetBackup, maybe even System Recovery too? To me, they are all backup software, and I couldn't find any info about which of them I should choose for what situation.

If it is not mentioned in the BE SCL, then it is not supported.

Sorry, what is SCL?

Thanks. But error shows up when I click on your link.

 

( I masked the error code, not sure what information it contains.)

"An error occurred while processing your request.

Reference #XX.XXXX.XXXX.XXXXXXXX"

 

 

I found the PDF version of the SCL of Backup Exec 21

https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/doc/BE_21_SCL

There is really no mention of kubernetes products.
