DPM 2016 - Deduplication Data on Tape Backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys, 

    Im after some advice in regards to DPM 2016 and data deduplication savings.

    Currently our daily backup writes to four LTO 6 tapes and the job does include all the dedup chunk store data and takes quite considerable tape to complete the job. Im quite new to how all this ties together in regards to DPM & deduplication for File Servers.

    So my question is that can I exclude the chuck store data so it does not appear on the tape backup? Any help would be appreciated.

    SQL 2016
    x3 PG (File Data, Application Data, Hyper-V Data)

    I've attached screenshot of the current data sizes.
