  1. dpm sql server backups

    Dpm will auto protect databases on a sql server, but when a database is removed manual intervention is required. Please add functionality to un protect deleted databases.

  2. incremental Backup to Tape

    Incremental Backup to Tape

    Some of my customers have security rules which state daily Tape Backup und unfortunately deny cloud backups. Would be nice to have the ability that not every time a tape backup is a full backup.

  4. Continue Tape backups post minor issues similar to Disk 2 Disk backup

    Currently during D2D backups if we encounter some failures like a file being corrupted DPM will continue the backup skipping the corrupted file and mention the details in a warning message. The request is to extend this feature for tape backups as well.

  5. Assigning PG backup to specific tape pool based on barcode label

    Option for allotting tapes to tape pools, pools can then be assigned to DPM protection group and the backups will only use tapes from allocated pool.

  7. Option to Move Inactive Replicas to Azure

    Most of the time your capacity planning w.r.t storage goes out of window while planning backup storage, reason unforeseen growth. Saving every byte of storage become so critical to keep backups falling apart. Inactive Replica space is something which can provide some breathing space. Depending on retention schedules they can potentially occupy the space for months. While moving the Datasource from protection group to Inactive state, It would be great to have an option by which it will allow to move these Inactive Replicas(cold Data) over to Azure. saving costly on-prem storage.

  9. better testing of dpm updates and redo how updates are installed.

    Updates almost always break dpm. I cringe evey time we apply dpm updates. The process should be revamped.

  10. Use Azure Vault as only repository

    In this moment is possible use Azure Vault, into PG, only if I have a local repository. Now that DPM is supported on Azure I could choose, during planning, if use the local storage or Azure Vault but if the application request local storage is not good.
