DPM 2010 calculate storage size needed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I would like to ask a general question about the deployment of DPM 2010.

    I want to set up 2 sites. Both DAS. It will be two indentical servers, each equipped with indentical diskcabinets. We want to keep a replica of all the data of one server on the DPM server. It's just files and folders, no exchange, hyper-v or sharepoint.

    Since we will be working with retention I am wondering how I can calculate the space requirements needed on the DPM server. Is there a formula for this or another way to calculate this?

    On the server that needs protection we have allocated 20TB. Retention is set to 3 days and recoverypoints are created three times a day (standard setting).

    Is this enough info to be able to determine how much TB I need on the DPM server?

    Thanks in advance for any reactions.
