just heard the OpenDedup is Netbackup ready. Just wondering if anyone is using it? Looks so far only support on Linux. Can someone share your experience?

Re: use OpenDedup on Netbackup media server

I’m interested why you would want to use it since you can just use msdp? Even Veritas switched from using open dedupe on the access appliance to using puredisk instead.

Re: use OpenDedup on Netbackup media server

I agree with @RiaanBadenhorst .
You still need the DPOO license to use the OST plugin.

The only good use case I have found is for Backup Exec.
With BE, it is possible to configure local opendedupe volume on the BE media server, plus config an OpenDedupe volume on cloud storage. You can then backup to local storage, then duplicate/replicate to cloud in dedupe format. 
I have tested it - it works well.
