Multi-tenancy with secure separation of assets
With NetBackup Self Service you can deploy any type of multi-tenant architecture based on your customer requirements—shared all, shared compute with private storage architecture, or shared nothing.The NetBackup Self Service gateway abstracts the infrastructure complexity of the back-end from your customers, while keeping their data secure.
