Re: pure disk

PureDisk is NetBackup's built-in deduplication technology and is activated by license key and MSDP config.

I don't really understand what your question is... maybe you want to read the intro pages of NBU Media Server Dedupe Guide for explanation of how dedupe works in NBU?

Re: pure disk

Netbackup client has built in client side deduplication for puredisk (MSDP), where as OST plugin start deduplicating data at the media server level.

Re: pure disk

what is exact difference between media server deuplicaition and pure disk?

In my media server had E drive of 1TB can I  configure it has a   MSDP  STU

Re: pure disk

If you already have MSDP STU then there is nothing else to configure.
MSDP use PureDisk technology.

MSDP = Media Server Deduplication = PureDisk.

PLEASE read through the intro pages of the Media Server Deduplication Guide as per my previous suggestion.
