Tower of Hanoi schema RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are using virtual tapes through firestreamer to store our long term backups, but we would like to use the tower of hanoi backup shcedule, rather than the GFS schema.

     

    How can I implement this using DPM 2010?

  • Hi,

     

    DPM has no provisions for implementing that backup strategy.

  • Hello Parag,


    Wikipedia has an excellent page on the schema:

  • Too bad, because it is a very disk-efficient strategy.

    Thanks
