  • Hi

    As far as i know, DPM 2012 supports 120TB storage pools but the snapshots limit is the same. The 80TB limit was in DPM 2010.

    Are you currently running this in your environment?

  • yes, dpm 2012, waiting for sp1.

    i'm planning to get to 50k users (11tb of data) in a short time, and trying to get out the correct numbers and configuration of DPM servers. This number is 2 as per the XLS sizing tool, so i was wondering about the existence of the limits i said before.

    These were the limitations for DPM2010 - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh758129.aspx

    DPM2012 Sp1 has increased the storage pool size to 120TB however; Exchange 2013 seems to have a limitation on DAG nodes to 16.

    I will try to get more data in regards to the mailboxes.  Thank you
