DPM and SAN Hardware Snapshot backup RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to determine whether it is possible to use DPM 2012 to create a hardware snapshot on a SAN using a hardware VSS provider, then move the snapshot over the iSCSI or FC network directly to another storage device, such as a (virtual or physical) tape library. I am trying to avoid moving the data over the LAN. I know of several other backup software vendors that can do this, even the lowly Symantec BackupExec knows how to do this, with the right extentions!

    If so, is there any documentation describing how to do the above?

    Also, is there any documentation describing whether this will bring any performance benefits?
