Hi All,


Has anyone had any experience with protecting an on-site APS PDW appliance?

At the moment the appliance dumps massive .bak files to a unc path and Commvault backs that up with no dedupe or compression.

It’s obviously be preferable to back the Appliance up directly to take advantage of dedupe and compression and skip the .bak portion altogether.


Thanks in anticipation.

Hi @Shane , thanks for the post!  I couldn’t find anything in our support database, so I’ll reach out to our internal dev folks to see if they can add anything.

Hi @Shane 

Can you please provide details on what is the application which is dumping these bak files? Is this some database?
