Data Domain Boost for Enterprise Applications Perform backups from third-party applications using Data Domain Boost (DDBoost). In certain environments, a database administrator or application owner can monitor backups and restores with DDBoost for Enterprise Applications (DDBEA) on the application host. The DDBEA agent integrates with the applications native management utility for efficient backups from the application host to the Data Domain using DDBoost. Restores may also be performed in the same fashion. For most applications, these backups and restores are supported over both IP and FC. For FC backups and restores, the following is required: Data Domain must contain two 2 or 4 port FC IO modules The application host must contain two FC HBAs connected to the SAN fabric and zoned correctly Data Domain must be licensed for the DDBoost feature.
