Hey, AVA UI showcase image 2.png

 

 

To Veritas customers participating in the NBKubed beta program: thank you! I am very pleased to announce the release of NetBackup 8.2 for the NBKubed beta. NetBackup 8.2 is a mammoth-sized release, offering a compelling collection of features. To see the new content and features in NetBackup 8.2, click here.

In the NBKubed beta program, we’re inviting participants to test desired use cases for backup in their cluster. The intent is to run the master server inside a cluster—depending on the specific needs of your system, you can choose to run the media servers inside or outside the cluster. NBKubed works with the latest released client container.

NBKubed beta notice:

This is a beta and is meant for a test environment, not your production environment. We have released this functionality early to gather feedback; please let us know if a needed feature is not functioning as expected. This beta was designed primarily for an on-premise cluster, however it should work in a cloud cluster including Amazon EKS. It is designed for Kubernetes, but can also work in your OpenShift environment. If you are having difficulties with the beta, please reach out directly to the development team at dl-vtas-nbkubed@veritas.com.
