Netbackup and Pure Storage

Has anyone set up a storage server in netbackup to ultize pure storage snapshots for super fast virtual machine recovery off the snapshot vs off the data domain?

Do you have any links to documentation which describes the supported functionality that you are hoping/expecting to use?

If I had to guess, he is talking about taking advantage of Pure Storage's FlashArray Snapshots and NetBackup with CloudPoint.

It's something I will be pushing for testing and possible implementation next year if my company continues to purchase more Pure Storage arrays in place of other existing storage arrays.

Getting all the moving parts and the correct documentation has been frustrating to say the least but this is what I am ultimately trying to get to:

...and I truly hope this means I can do single vm restores and not just datasore/lun level restores from the pure snapshots off the array.
