Choosing Backup Software

Published : September 27, 2005

The optimal way to archive the DPM replicas and databases is to use backup software that is specifically designed to work with DPM. You can also archive the replicas and databases by using backup software that does not support DPM. If you use software that does not support DPM, the process for archiving the replicas and databases differs depending on whether or not the backup software supports the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS).

Your backup software will be one of the types listed in Table 5.1.
