DPM 2012 SP1 - Single Data Source Written to Multiple Tape Drives RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just a question, really...

    I know that DPM can write to multiple drives for a single protection group with more than one data source.

    However, is it possible for DPM 2012 SP1 (or R2) to write to multiple drives from a single data source from a single protection group?

    So if I have "DataSource A" in "MyProtectionGroup" and I allocate 2 tape drives to the PG, could DPM use both drives to backup the PG?

    I assume the answer is "no," but I just wanted to double check.  Thanks.

  • Hi,

    What you are wanting is a feature called striping and DPM does not have that advanced feature.

  • Thanks Mike.  That's what I thought.

    Do you know if this feature will be added to future DPM products?
