Is Netbackup Accelerator supported for ISILON devices

HCL for Netbackup 8.0 says the below

"Incremental forever" backups are supported with this device via the "LEVEL=10"
environment variable. For more information on environment variables, see the device
vendor's documentation.

However i am not sure if its the same as Netbackup accelerator backups

Hi,

NDMP Accelerator is only available for NetApp. Isilon has some improvements which are said to give better performance and storage savings.

Re: Netbackup Accelerator for ISILON DEVICES

Extract from v8 NetBackup Release Notes 

 MSDP stream handler enhancements for Isilon filers using NDMP
This release of NetBackup includes enhancements to the MSDP stream handler.
These enhancements provide improved deduplication rates when data is written to MSDP from Isilon filers using NDMP. No additional set-up or configuration is required to take advantage of these enhancements.

So, no Accelerator as yet, just 'improved stream handlers'.

I see that doc was last updated on 10 August 2016.

I wonder if Veritas has a newer version for changes in NBU 8....
