What's new in NetBackup v10.0 - Microsoft Azure Immutable Storage with Deduplication support

Level 3

I would like to share with you that Veritas NetBackup v10.0 allows you to have greater security and compliance using immutable storage for Azure Blob Storage.

Immutable storage helps healthcare organizations, financial institutions, and related industries that must comply with regulations such as from Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC), Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), and more, to store data securely. Also, immutable storage can be leveraged in any scenario to protect critical data against modification or deletion as well as enable users to store sensitive information that is critical to litigation or business use in a tamper-proof state until the desired lock duration expires. 

Veritas NetBackup v10.0 added a feature to support cloud immutable storage with dedupe functionality for Microsoft Azure blob storage with versioning.  You can leverage Microsoft’s immutable blob storage to provide you security and compliance for your backup images storing them in a write once, read many (WORM) state.  Once data is written, the data becomes non-erasable and non-modifiable, and you can set a retention period so that files can't be deleted until after that period has elapsed. 

After you create a new Microsoft Azure blob storage volume on Azure using the msdpcldutil utility, you can create the Media Server Deduplication Pool storage server using the NetBackup WebUI to add the volume you just created to a Disk pool, check the “Use object lock” box as shown below to enable immutability on your Azure blob storage. 


Now you can add a storage unit to the Media Server Deduplication Server Storage Server.  You will see that the disk pool is WORM capable.  Simply select “Enable Worm” checkbox and it is configured.
