DPM 2016 / Azure Replication RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have DPM server installed onsite, using it to protect SQL databases, backup up to local disk and replicating to Azure cloud storage. Two questions - I noticed the data used in cloud storage is significantly less (>50%) than the size of the databases. Is there come compression happening there as part of the replication to Azure cloud? Second question - am I able to restore those databases from Azure cloud storage without the DPM server? In other words, is there a way to *browse* the contents of the Azure cloud storage and copy those files to another location?

    Yes, when sending data to the Azure backup vault the data is both compressed and encrypted.  You can only restore data in the Azure recovery vault using the original or alternate DPM Server.  You must know the latest passphrase used by the original DPM Server when restoring from an alternate DPM Server.
