NetBackup Flex Scale 3.0 is a hyperconverged deployment option that provides a complete, self-managed NetBackup 10 cluster along with advanced automation to make scaling out capacity, job concurrency, and cluster resources simple, painless tasks.
Naturally NetBackup 10 capabilities like Oracle Incremental Merge with Universal Share and malware scanning are available in a NetBackup Flex Scale cluster, and now are administered along with the backup infrastructure itself from a single web-based UI.
With NetBackup Flex Scale 3.0, administrators will use the combined UI to:
Role-based access control for the UI means that only administrators will be offered only a view into parts of the UI they are permitted to use. An administrator can have an appliance admin role, a NetBackup admin role, or both.
Previous releases of NetBackup Flex Scale supported the 5551 appliance model, an HPe DL380 Gen10 server with 14TB drives for its backup data pool. NetBackup Flex Scale 3.0 adds the 5562 appliance model, a Dell PowerEdge R750 with either 8 TB or 12 TB drives.
This not only gives you more flexibility in choosing a platform vendor but also gives you a range of starting capacities:
Further deployment flexibility options include:

In the version 3.0 release, we further increased security by restricting remote access to destructive operations which prevents users from accessing the system via IPMI and:
Together with NetBackup’s anomaly detection and malware scanning capabilities, NetBackup Flex Scale provides resilient protection for your backup data in a simple to deploy, highly scalable solution. For more information on the multiple layers of security check out my Secure-by-Default white paper.
