Is it possible to install the BoostFS library on a HyperScale X Media Agent, and if so is it supported?
I’m looking to write a additional backup copy to storage outside of the appliance and hope I can do it in a deduplicated manner rather than having to send a full copy to the data domain. The topic of BoostFS is discussed on https://documentation.commvault.com/commvault/v11/article?p=9404.htm#o132281, but nothing specific to HyperScale X and BoostFS at https://documentation.commvault.com/commvault/v11/article?p=128105.htm.

Thanks for the question. No, we don't support attaching additional disk libraries to HyperScale Nodes (1.5 or X)
Thank you Mike for the clarification. I assume that’s a No to all disk library types, PBBA and NAS.
I’ll confirm that to be certain.
Hi Mike - can you provide a confirmation for HyperScale X (appliance or reference architecture) writing to an external PBBA/NAS? Thanks.
I’ll find out!
Got a reply from the Product Manager himself:
Not directly no. The only external storage we support writing directly to with HS or HSX is Cloud targets (and limited to the same size as the HS/HSX Storage)
Thank you for comfirming.
