Backup flow using Netbackup (virtual media) and HPE StoreOnce

Hi,

Does anyone have experience using HPE Storeonce (Catalyst plugin) and virtual media server?

My question is during a backup, do the backup data go to the media server first then to the HPE StoreOnce or directly to the HPE StoreOnce?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @AndresV 

The backup flow goes through the media server. The media server then uses the OST plug-in to send the data to the HPE StoreOnce. 

The implication of this is that the entire backup has to be sent to the media server. The media server (with the OST connection) should then be able to perform an optimzed data transfer to the StoreOnce. 

Using a virtual or physical media server makes no difference in this data flow (unless Im missing something in the question).

Cheers
David
