Dedicated Backup Network

A data interface pair (DIP) defines an exclusive network route between two host computers. You can use DIPs to improve performance by routing high-volume backup traffic through a network interface that is different than the default interface (the one specified during installation).

Clients belonging to a client group can have an interface pair defined to another client, such as a MediaAgent, by defining a DIP from the group to that MediaAgent. This can save you time and effort if a group of logically related clients all use the same MediaAgent.

A DIP requires that both host computers in the pair have a network interface name that was not used during the software installation process.
