Abstract: This white paper is a brief overview of the functional and performance proof of concept using Veritas NetBackup with IBM Elastic Storage Server (ESS) GL4 enabled by IBM Spectrum Scale formerly known as General Parallel File System (GPFS). The intended audience of this paper is technical but the paper also contains high-level non-technical content. This paper describes and documents some of the NetBackup disk target configuration steps as part of the functional testing performed. The paper also reports and analyzes the PoC performance results.
