NetApp® certification of backup applications ensures that software vendors’ products interoperate with the NetApp ONTAP® software and our tape-based backup products.
Why Use NDMP
NDMP (Network Data Management Protocol) provides an open standard for network-based backup of network-attached storage (NAS). NDMP minimizes coding needed for different applications by providing standard commands for backing up and restoring file servers. For NetApp customers, NDMP increases the speed and efficiency of NAS data protection, because data can bypass backup servers and be written directly to tape storage.
Starting with 8.2 ONTAP software supports Storage Virtual Machine aware NDMP backups. This helps in optimizing NDMP backup performance by choosing efficient data transfer paths and be fully compatible with integrated non-disruptive operations and volume mobility capabilities of ONTAP software. In order to support this feature, CAB extension has to be implemented by backup Vendors. Please refer to Interoperability Matrix IMT for a quick reference to vendor backup Application support list. Please refer to backup vendor’s documentation for details and support information on this feature.
