What's the difference in functionality between disk and tape based protection in DPM 2012? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all.

    I have two customers who wants to use DPM 2012 for their backup needs but due to various resons they both have opted to use disk hardware that can only provide DPM with VTL functionality.

    Since DPM is designed to be a disk based backup solution I was pretty sure that there'd be limitations in functionality when going straight to tape but I can only find one limitation; when using tape the shortest time between backups is one a day.

    Are there other limitations regarding functionality in DPM that I just can't find?

    Thanks in advance.
