System Requirements - MediaAgent

The following requirements are for the MediaAgent:

Best Practice

Use the latest version of the operating system software listed in the Operating System table. NetApp software fully supports the latest version of an operating system until the vendor ends support. Newer versions of NetApp software might not install on operating systems for which vendor support has ended. For information about the Microsoft support lifecycle, go to the Microsoft Support website, Microsoft Support Lifecycle. For support lifecycle information for other operating systems, contact the appropriate software vendor.

Hardware Specifications

The hardware requirements for MediaAgent installed on either physical or virtual machines is explained in Hardware Specifications for MediaAgent.

Notes:

  • The software installation requires 20 GB of disk space on the operating system drive. This space is used for temporary files copied during the installation or upgrade of the MediaAgent software.
  • 10 GB for the MediaAgent software and log file growth.
  • Optimal performance will be realized with solid-state drive (SSD) technology for your local index cache disk. This is particularly important in cases of:
    • NAS filers running NDMP backups
    • Backing up large file servers
    • Any situation where performance is critical

AIX LPAR Support

Data protection on Logical Partitioning (LPAR) is supported.

Miscellaneous

The File System Agent is installed automatically during the installation of this software component (if it is not installed already). To review the system requirements of the File System Agent, see System Requirements - Microsoft Windows File System Agent.

Microsoft Visual C++

The following Redistributable Package is installed automatically. Note that the Redistributable Package can co-exist with other versions of this software.

Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package

Cloud Server Support

The MediaAgent can be installed on a Virtual Server in a Cloud. For example, Virtual Server in Amazon EC2.

After the installation, make sure that the remote clients can access this MediaAgent.

DISCLAIMER

Third-party maintenance (minor) releases or service packs that are supported by the NetApp software may not be listed in our System Requirements. When possible, NetApp provides information on any known issues related to these minor releases or service packs. In some cases, these minor releases or service packs affect how the NetApp software works. NetApp software may experience changes in functionality as the result of the third-party minor release or service pack. These changes are beyond the control of NetApp. Platforms that are supported in the current version of NetApp software may not be supported in earlier versions of the software. Contact your software provider to ensure that third-party minor releases or service packs are compatible with the NetApp software.

Additional considerations regarding minimum requirements and End-of-Life policies from third-party vendors also apply.
