IS NDMP protocol supported for backups

Unread post by philhu » Fri Oct 10, 2014 1:55 pm

I am thinking of using Bacula Enterprise, which has an NDMP network protocol for backing up NAS devices.

Does Synology support NDMP? NetApp, and others do.

Thanks

Here is a blurb on NDMP:
Network Data Management Protocol is an industry standard protocol created to ease the process of integrating backup and restore for network attached storage (NAS) with data protection software such as Bacula Enterprise Edition.

As far as I remember (and a quick search confirms it) NDMP was born and died years ago due to lack of support from any major vendor.
It may be one good idea, but is dead! Don't count on any support for it...

NDMP is in use and supported by MANY vendors, including NetApp, QNap, and the Lenovo NAS (IOMega) products

I don't see anyone having dropped it, and Bacula as well as Symantec products all support it. Actually at www.ndmp.org, I see EVERYONE supporting it (except Synology).

i *DO* see in the forums, people in the Synology world asking for support for it and it hitting 'dead ears' at Synology.

As any good storage or backup engineer worth their salt knows, NDMP is alive and well. I would love to see NDMP integrated into the Synology products as well. For us it would mean that our Synology NAS's can move from being large chunks of relatively cheap and reliable archival storage to being a real contender for our main NAS filers.

NDMP protocol is the basic in enterprise backup software.
Without it, synology cannot be positioned in any enterprise load with standard backup workflows.

not having it in a NAS is very restricting (and many in the companies will regard the NAS as a little more than a toy).

why doesn't my enterprise products ( RS3167xs ) not support NDMP? i have to install the agent on a windows file system instead of the NAS to back up my ISCSI targets.....

Are there any plans in the near future for NDMP Support on Synology NAS Devices?
