Joining the NetBackup appliance family is the newest member; NetBackup 5300 series. The 5300 series are media servers with storage and are optimized to deliver a new level of performance, scalability, and resiliency in the industry. The NetBackup 5330 was announced in October and will be GA (General Availability) in early March. Only a few short weeks away!
We’re really excited about the addition of this new appliance to our NetBackup integrated appliance family. Keep reading for more details on how it fits.
The NetBackup 5330 is an integrated purpose-built backup appliance (PBBA). Integrated, as defined by IDC, means it has the master or media servers built into the system to orchestrate the backup and movement of data to other systems or removable media such as tape. This is different than target appliances, which are dependent on third-party backup software and designed to integrate in heterogeneous environments. Often target appliances are deduplication storage systems or devices.
Both the NetBackup 5200 and 5300 series are integrated appliances.

NetBackup Appliance Product Comparison
One difference between the NetBackup 5230 and 5330 models is their capacity scale, as highlighted in the Figure 1 above.
Related to capacity, another difference is the capacity density of the products, see Table 1. The NetBackup 5330 delivers 22.80 TB per Rack Space Unit (RSU). Having greater capacity density saves valuable rack space, which is often at a premium given the cost of data center floor space and limited ability to expand the data center. The appliance also delivers environmental benefits such as power and cooling, which will be covered in greater detail in a subsequent blog.
|NetBackup 5230||NetBackup 5330|
|Usable Capacity (TB max.)||148 TB||229 TB|
|Density (TB per RSU)||10.57||22.80|
The NetBackup 5200 and 5300 series already co-exist in many customer environments. Two common scenarios for the NetBackup 5200 are:
The NetBackup 5330 is ideal for organizations requiring performance, scale, or reliability. Common use cases are:
In subsequent blogs, I will cover several few key attributes of the NetBackup 5330 appliance; its performance, scale, and resiliency.
The NetBackup 5330 is the newest family member to the integrated appliance family and delivers a new level of performance, scalability, and resiliency in the industry.
