Netbackup And Backup Exec Ready

SDFS is qualified for use with NetBackup and Backup Exec and can be used as a target. OpenDedupe has even Developed and Qualified an OST connector for Netbackup with Veritas. This means that you can send dedupe netbackup images to the cloud through SDFS.

OpenDedup OST Connector 2.1.0

The OpenDedup OST connector provides integration between NetBackup and OpenDedup. It supports the following OST features:

  • Write/Backup to OpenDedup volumes
  • Read/Restore from OpenDedup volumes
  • Accelerator support from backups to OpenDedup Volumes

OpenDedup provides an open source filesystem, SDFS, that includes inline deduplication to local or cloud storage targets. Backup specific features of OpenDedup are as follows:

  • In-Line deduplication to a Cloud Storage Backend – SDFS can send all of its data to AWS, AZURE, Google, or any S3 compliant backend.
  • Performance  – Compressed Multi-Threaded upload and download of data to the cloud.
  • Local Cache – SDFS will cache the most recently accessed data locally. This is configurable but set to 10 GB by default
  • Security – All data can be encrypted using AES-CBC 256 when sent to the cloud
  • Throttling – Upload and download speeds can be throttled.
  • Cloud Recovery/Replication – All local metadata is replicated to the cloud and can be recovered back to local volume.
  • Glacier Support – Supports S3 Lifecycle policies and retrieving data from Glacier
  • AWS Region Support – Supports all AWS Regions
