While the three-way NDMP backup works well for NetApp (FAS) and DellEMC (Isilon, Unity) systems, one important functionality is missing. Right now only Backup to Disk targets (file library and StoreOnce Catalyst) are supported. Customers are requesting direct backup to tape using a NDMP-MA.
The current generation (Gen6) of DellEMC Isilon does not have support for the Backup Accelerator anymore. This means it is not possible to attach FC tape devices to the Isilon system anymore. Three-way NDMP is the only option, but does not have tape support.
