Need some direction for a new guy to DPM. RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are moving to DPM and I had some questions:

    I was looking to see how physical tapes are involved during the DPM backup process as well as the possibility as backing up an AIX or Linux environment.

    I saw that for Unix/Linux, the i365 was recommended in another forum post, but would the i365 be integrated into DPM?  If so, is this a separate purchase or something we would have access to for free?

    We are currently using another product that backs up to a virtual drive first, then to a physical tape for phase 2.  I wanted to see if I could read something that isn't 20 pages long to say exactly that as an overview.  I didn't know the phases on DPM and I've been tasked with the chance to learn a lot.

    The Linux backup is the time critical one and if someone could point me in the right direction to what they may do and how they utilized it, I would be very happy and honored.
