Delivered with the NetBackup Client software, users can now accelerate the backup and recovery of their Cloud Universal Shares!
Universal share accelerator doesn't provide the NFS or SMB service, but what it does provide is a direct file system mount point on the workload or client. The data goes directly to the cloud bucket and avoids traversing the storage server by saving you time!
