Dears,

One of our customers installed Netbackup in thier environment and they are planning to purchase a VTL. they need around 50TB usable capcity but when it comes to cost they founof it is over budget. I am thinking to sugget a SAN storage with deduplication like NetApp FAS2240-4.

my concern here is thier many advantages of VTL over a SAN storage like NetApp with deduplication more than that Netbackup will detect the VTL as a Tape library and for NetApp it will be a Disk? or in General what is the advantages of VTL over SAN with Dedupliaction ?

Also could you please need any article / document that recommend to use NetApp as a backup repository with Netbackup.

 

Many Thanks and Regards,

Have you given NetBackup 5230 Appliances a thought?

With additional FC cards to make it a FT media server?
Or without and take full advantage of Client side dedupe and Accelerator?

See http://www.symantec.com/content/en/us/enterprise/fact_sheets/b-netbackup_appliance_5230_DS_21273484-... 

VTL is configured as normal tape. NBU cannot take advantage of any dedupe features.

Please see the NBU HCL for different features supported by the different Appliance vendors:  http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH76495
