DPM 2012 offsite replication RRS feed

  • Question

  • Currently at early planning stages and wanted to get some advice on DPM configuration;

    We have two sites where we have Site1: Main Office and Site2: Datacenter. Both sites will have number of servers which we will backup locally.

    I would like to know if DPM can replicate the data offsite across to the other site, so Site1 will replicate data off to Site2 and vice versa.

    Or are we better off using a hardware which has replication option built in?

    Many Thanks.

    Yes, DPM can do Cyclic Protection, below is the TechNet page describing the feature, be sure to read the community comments at the bottom for some caveats.
