The combination of a Data Domain system and DD Boost for Backup Exec creates an optimized connection to provide a tightly integrated solution
OpenStorage software gives NetBackup visibility into the properties and capabilities of the Data Domain storage system
DDBoost for RMAN enables database servers to communicate with Data Domain systems in an optimized way improving performance
Backup data is sent directly from the client to the Data Domain system using DDBoost technology to provide faster backup and recovery.
Data Domain Boost software provides integration between Data Domain storage systems and NetWorker software.
This post provides the steps needed to configure DD Boost over Fibre Channel via the System Manager and/or via command line.
The Client Direct feature paired with DDBoost is especially powerful, because it enables DSP to take place on the client.
The ability for client backups to bypass the Storage Node and write directly to Data Domain eliminates a bottleneck during backups.
The basics is that we are eliminating redundant data, storing only one instance of each segment and using pointers to take the place of duplicates.
This is a simplified method taken from the manuls on how to perform the initial configuration on Data Domain system
