Veritas NetBackup Server in Kubernetes
Updated: Apr 9, 2020
Containers are becoming more and more popular in today’s fast-moving IT world.
Containers are a solution to the problem of how to get the software to run reliably when moved from one computing environment to another. This could be from a developer's laptop to a test environment, from a staging environment into production or from a physical machine in a data center to a virtual machine in a private or public cloud.
To better assist customers transitioning to containerized environments, Veritas is releasing a beta version of NetBackup Server for Kubernetes, or NBKubed.
Veritas is inviting participants that are interested to test various use cases for backup in their environment. The intent is to run the Master server inside a cluster and depending on the specific needs of your system, you can choose to run the Media servers inside or outside the cluster. NBKubed works with the latest released client container.
If you are interested in joining the NBKubed beta program, please complete the following steps:

NBKubed beta notice:
This is a beta and is meant for a test environment, not your production environment. We have released this functionality early to gather feedback; please let us know if a needed feature is not functioning as expected. This beta was designed primarily for an on-premise cluster, however, it should work in a cloud cluster including Amazon EKS. It is designed for Kubernetes, but can also work in your OpenShift environment. If you are having difficulties with the beta, please reach out directly to the development team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
