Storage planning for client backup using DPM 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,


    My company is planning to use DPM 2010 for client backup and we plan to backup only users documents folder to disk and from disk to tape. The maximum available space available for each user will be 1 GB. Total number of users are 1000.


    The retention period for data is 4 weeks  and we plan to take backup once daily. We want that 1 full backup should be taken every Monday and then for remaining 6  days incremental backup should be taken.Could some body please help me with following:

    Storage space needed in this scenario.



    thanks in advance.

  • In any case DPM will clean the data older than 4 weeks.

    If you want to keep a long terme backup on Tape than you can select to (for example), a weekly and a monthly backup.

    Weekly then you'll have 16 RP and monthly only 4.


    You can select up to 3 strategies for long term backup.
