Data Protection Manager
In many organizations, disk-to-disk-to-tape backup is replacing the traditional
disk-to-tape backup systems that have been the standard for disaster recovery
for many years. A big part of that reason is Microsoft's new server product,
Data Protection Manager (DPM). The NovaNET DPM option integrates the enterprise
backup and disaster recovery power of NovaNET with the simple on-line
replication advantages of DPM, bringing unprecedented simplicity, power,
flexibility, and reliability to enterprise data protection.
Every NovaNET package comes ready to support multi-slot autoloaders with a
single tape drive. For more expansive storage solutions, extra support for
additional tape drives for larger libraries and larger autoloaders may be purchased.
