How it works is pretty complicated, but what is provides is a backup solution. You can configure automated backups of various types. NetBackup writes the backup to the storage unit (typically a tape library), catalog's the files backed up and info about them, as well as where exactly the files are on tape. This allows you to browse for different versions of a file etc. during a restore.

NetBackup provides the ability to have multiple media servers, often at different sites, attached under a master server in a domain model.

NetBackup is designed with disaster recovery (DR) in mind, just in case you lose the site. You would have to implement offsite tape storage, backup your NetBackup catalog's and license info and take that offsite as well.

There is a lot to NetBackup, but I have used it and it's main competitor (Legato), and prefer NB.

If your company is going to purchase NetBackup, make sure the salesman throws in a 3 or 5 day training class for the admin that will be administering it. I would recommend taking the class prior to the install, but I did a successful install before the class. It was a lot harder though.

BACKUP_APROPOS(8)					       AFS Command Reference						 BACKUP_APROPOS(8)

       backup_apropos - Displays each help entry containing a keyword string

       backup apropos -topic <help string> [-help]

       backup ap -t <help string> [-h]

       The backup apropos command displays the first line of the online help entry for any backup command that has in its name or short
       description the string specified by the -topic argument.

       To display the syntax for a command, use the backup help command.

       -topic <help string>
	   Specifies the keyword string to match, in lowercase letters only.  If the string is more than a single word, surround it with double
	   quotes (" ") or other delimiters.

	   Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.

       The first line of a command's online help entry names it and briefly describes its function. This command displays the first line for any
       backup command where the string specified with the -topic argument is part of the command name or first line.

       The following example lists all backup commands that include the word "tape" in their names or short descriptions:

	  % backup apropos tape
	  labeltape: label a tape
	  readlabel: read the label on tape
	  scantape: dump information recovery from tape
	  status: get tape coordinator status
