Re: Need difference in appliance

An Appliance is a discrete hardware device with integrated software.

The Appliance version number starting with 5, such as 5020, 5220,5330 etc. represent the hardware version.

Whereas the integrated software collectively including driver revisions, OS , patches of all software components is versioned as 2.x,3.x etc. (e.g 2.6.1, 2.7.1 etc), this version represents the software version or appliance firmware running on the specific hardware.

You cannot modify or patch the individual software separately, it has to be done via Appliance specific patch only.

Appliance can be categorized as:

  1. Storage pool or NetBackup Pure disk Appliance (i.e. appliances with 50XX series) this do not have NetBackup installed, it serves as a destination.
  2. Purpose build backup appliance with NetBackup pre-installed on an optimized hardware, i.e Appliance with the series 52XX,53XX,…and hence forth)
