How to Approximate Secondary DPM Server Disk Space Required. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a percentage of the primary DPM server replica size that is needed for the Secondary DPM server disk pool? If I have 10TB of Replicas on the Primary DPM server do I need 10 TB of disk space for the secondary DPM server? Thanks

  • Hello,


    Secondary DPM server allows you to pick and choose which data sources you want to enable secondary protection for, so if you want to protect the entire primary DPM server it will require different storage needs than if you just protect a few data sources.  Desired retension range on the secondary also plays a large role in planning.  You can probably leverage the "Disk Utilization" report on the primary to get a feel for the storage requirements on the secondary based on what you plan on protecting with the secondary.
