NetBackup 8.1.2: The simplicity behind the design

[Editor’s note: This is part one of a 3 part series]

There is something extremely special about building a product so popular and so successful that there are jobs out there, in the market, created for the sole purpose of overseeing and managing this product.

NetBackup Administrators and NetBackup Engineers depend on the #1 Backup solution in the world to keep their business’s data, whether it’s on cloud or on-prem, available, protected, and recoverable.  It is now through NetBackup that we are able to showcase the new philosophy of Veritas design which focuses on three main components, and that is to bring to our customers solutions that are Simple, Intuitive, and Integrated

This article, the first in a series around NetBackup 8.1.2, will focus on the element of simplicity.

Today, NetBackup is changing and adapting to the requirements of our customers.  Hundreds of engagements held through the Veritas Customer and Partner Engagement Program have given us a closer look at what you are asking for.

We’re happy to say that we hear you loud and clear and we are delivering on your requests.

Admins can delegate certain tasks to the right owners

Simplicity is our number one goal with this release and for that reason, we’ve simplified the work being done by NetBackup Administrators, Security Administrators, and Workload Administrators to provide an end-to-end workload driven user experience.

With NetBackup 8.1.2 we’ve started with what matters the most to you.  This is why we started with VMware and cloud workloads.

The new web UI leverages role-based access control (RBAC).  This means that, for the first time ever, backup admins can now delegate responsibilities to VMware admins, providing them with instant access to specific workloads.

NetBackup 8.1.2 is simple because you asked for simplicity.  It’s a product we built by listening to the most important stakeholders, you, the customers that use this product day in and day out.

We are currently using the New Netbackup 8.1.2 UI, however we are having a little difficulty on how to sort for a specific client.  Is there a way to create a custom view based on a policy, client or backup type? We have backup operators who's main functions are to review backups for critical clients.  However we have not found a way to filter for specific clients using the Web UI, can this be done?

Hi @carolinagirl - apologies, I just saw this message right now, did someone from the product team get back to you on this question?  If not I can connect you as needed.  You're welcome to follow up with us at customer.engagement@veritas.com with more details.

Thanks.
