Welcome to mandeeparora.com, an independent blogging platform for various data protection solutions.

I had worked on multiple data protection solutions in the past, and recently I am working with Pure Storage as a Solutions Architect for Data protection and working on various partners integration such as Cohesity, Netbackup, Veeam, Rubrik, and TSM.


Recently NetBackup and Pure worked closely to support MSDP over NFS on FlashBlade with direct availability from Veritas, and this blog will help know about the implementation of the Solutions for both existing NetBackup users and new users.
