  • HI Team

    i hope you're doing well. 

    My name is fajar. Currently we have plan to extend our storage in dpm server but we have got information from our colleague that DPM only support maks 300 user, is it correct?

    if its correct it will be big issue to us because we have employee more than 1000.

    Thank you very much

    okay thank you for your information. Regarding DPM 2016 what is the benefit if using MBS rathen than VHD attached storage because attached storage is more familiar for us

  • Hi Fajar,

    Some of the main benefits of using MBS are the following:

    • Up to 30-40% savings in storage.
    • Ability to configure workloads for storage on different volumes.
    • Backups that are 70% faster with MBS (Modern Backup Storage).
    • Backup storage inline with the production data source.


    Best regards,
    Leon

  • Hi,

    If your DPM server is a Virtual Machine you can still use VHD attached storage, that didn't changed. Modern Backup Storage (MBS) is new feature in DPM 2016, and you cannot use anything else if you have new DPM installation on a Windows Server 2016. If you are migrating from DPM 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012 R2 you can still use legacy disk storage, but it's highly recommended to migrate to MBS.
