New Features and Enhancements for NetBackup Self Service
NetBackup Self Service plug-in 1.2 for VMware Cloud Director
Alongside NetBackup Self Service 9.0, Veritas released NetBackup Self Service plug-in 1.2 for VMware Cloud Director, which now provides support for VMware Cloud Director (vCD) 10.1.
The NSS vCD plugin is targeted at service provider customers of NetBackup who manage virtual infrastructure on behalf of many end customers using vCD. The plug-in further embeds NetBackup into a customer’s tool portfolio.
NetBackup Self Service (NSS) has always provided support for vCD as it aligns well with the multi-tenant nature and self-service ethos of vCD, the latest version of the NSS Cloud Director plug-in enables and enhances both these aspects.

The plug-in enables a user to perform backup and restore activities without leaving the vCD portal by leveraging the NSS features with regard to Cloud Director. The plug-in follows vCD guidelines on scope and UX.
A tenant can perform the following actions on vCD objects:
NetBackup Self Service is included with the NetBackup Complete Edition and can be downloaded from the Veritas Downloads Center.
