Hardware support for Itaniums

Good day,

Can anybody tell me offhand whether or not NetBackup supports Itaniums?
To do deduplication...does it need to be done to disk first before sending it off to tape, and is this automated?

Thanks.

Until recently I had a HPUX 11.23 IA64 Master server and a handful of 11.23 IA64 media servers. running NB 6.5.4.
So yes supporting Itaniums. They keep adding support for OS's on IA64. eg SLES 11 was just added
But always check in here with the latest OS Compatibility matrix (Jan 2010) for NB 6.x and might as well review for NB 7.0 also at this URL

Just check the Operating System and it will tell you if it supports the OS on IA64 as Master, Media Server and/or Client. Some may only support Client at the least. ie OpenVMS

IA64 as client or Master/media server ?

Netbackup can't do de-dupe to tape (as far as I know off).

There are also Linux on IA64. But as Stuart says's always check the OS comparability matrix. It a good place to start.

We have HP superdome that runs NetBackup SAN media server.
It works quite stable for WIntel.
