Optimized synthetic backups for deduplication

NetBackup environments that use the NetBackup Deduplication Option license key environment can benefit from the optimized synthetic backup method.

This method constructs the synthetic image by using calls from the backup server to the storage server. The backup 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 Deduplication Guide for more information.
