  • Hi,

    I would need more information about the workloads.

    Average size of VM's.
    Number and total size of SQL DB's you want to protect.
    Number of Exchange DB's and their sizes.
    I would probably recommend BMR backup for the DC's

    One DPM server should be able to backup all of the virtual machines plus the additional application workloads like SQL and Exchange if all of the above does not exceed the maximum limits for a single DPM server.
