Optimized synthetic backups using OpenStorage

NetBackup environments that use the Enterprise Disk license key environment can benefit from the OpenStorage optimized synthetic backup method.

This method constructs the synthetic image by using calls from the media server to the storage server. The media server tells the storage server which full and incremental images to use to create the synthetic backup. Then, the storage server constructs (or synthesizes) the synthetic image directly on the storage server, reducing network traffic.

See the NetBackup Shared Storage Guide for more information.
