Storage management applications

Backup Administration Guide for Hitachi NAS Platform

Part Number

The server acts as an NDMP server, operating with leading storage management applications. It supports NDMP Version 2, 3 and 4. The server implementation of NDMP can back up and restore:

  • Both Windows and UNIX files from a single storage management application.
  • The full attributes of each Windows and UNIX file (including Windows ACLs), saving and restoring whole volumes and preserving all file attributes.

The server supports recovery of single files or subdirectories, associated lists, or complete backup images. The Direct Access Recovery (DAR) mechanism can be used, provided the Storage Management Application supports it. DAR allows NDMP to go directly to the correct place in the tape image to find the data, rather than reading the whole image. This can dramatically reduce recovery times.
