ABU vs TARA with NetVault or TARA with TSM

To backup and recover Teradata, is ABU requirementmandatory or can we use TARA with NV/TSM?

I dint understand the relation or differences between ABU and TARA with NV/TSM.

Re: ABU vs TARA with NetVault or TARA with TSM

The Appliance Backup Utility (ABU) is a tool bundled in with Teradata Appliances only, while derived from the same code base as TARA it is a cut down version which will only backup/restore to/from a remote file-system mounted via NFS or iSCSI over an Ethernet connection.

If you have a Teradata Backup and Restore Solution using TARA (NetBackup/TSM) or the Teradata plugin for NetVault that integrates directly into a backup application ABU is not required.

Hope this helps
