Higher Data Throughput
NDMP allows backup data to be transported directly from the OS Client to the NAS device without passing through the Zmanda server. It improves backups runs while minimizing the loads placed on the corporate LAN.
Seamless ZMC Integration
Zmanda handles many of the integration complexities, minimizing overhead and ongoing effort required by System Administrators. We also support a broad variety of backup mediums, spanning from cost-effective tape storage to modern cloud providers.
NDMP option in Zmanda supports full and incremental backups using the NDMP protocols.
Backup image metadata is routed and stored on self-hosted Zmanda Servers.
Multiple NDMP and non-NDMP backup sets can even share the same Tape drives.
Zmanda's NDMP configuration allows for recovery of the entire filesystem or specific files from the backup images. All filesystem meta-data attributes, including UNIX and Windows file attributes, are maintained during Backups and Recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions
Amanda Enterprise uses NDMP to enable high performance backup and recovery of Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices such as NetApp Storage Systems and Sun ZFS Storage Appliances. NDMP allows backup data to be transported directly from the NAS device to the backup device without passing through the Amanda Enterprise server. This speeds up NDMP backup in many environments, thus reducing the backup window, as well as minimizing the demands placed on the corporate LAN.
This Option supports full and incremental backups using the NDMP protocol. Meta-data for the backup images is stored on the Amanda Server. Tape drives can be shared across multiple NDMP and non-NDMP backup sets. You can recover the entire file system or specific files from the backup images. All file system meta-data attributes, including UNIX and Windows file attributes, are maintained when backing up and recovering data using NDMP.
The Amanda Enterprise NDMP Option supports all three NDMP topologies:
- Direct NDMP : Where data flows directly from the NAS device to the tape drive
- Three-way NDMP (aka Filer-to-Filer): Where data flows from the NAS device to a tape drive connected to another NAS device.
- Remote NDMP : Where data flows through the Amanda Backup server to any media (tape, disk or cloud) supported by Amanda Enterprise.
It is the World’s leading provider of enterprise open source backup and recovery products. We have a legacy of protecting enterprise data.
