Techdays 2008 – SCDPM – data protectionmanager 2007

During the techdays 2008 in Ghent i attended a nice session by Jason buffington on SCDPM 2007.

I noticed he was using a synthetic tapedrive because all was running in a virtual environment and i hoped he didn't have to drag a real tape drive library around the world.
So after the session I had a great Q&A with Jason and got introduced to some software called Firestreamer.

Firestreamer for Microsoft Data Protection Manager

Firestreamer is a utility that allows Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) to access a wide range of non-tape storage media, making possible long-term and off-site retention of data without the need for tape drives. Firestreamer can use HDD, Blu-ray, DVD, Iomega REV, network file systems and other types of media as underlying storage, exposing the pieces of media as virtual tape to DPM. More…

  • Read the white paper.
  • Download Firestreamer for a free 30-day trial.
  • See Cristalink featured on Microsoft's website.

thought i wanted to share this software further as it is great for demo purposes (and real implementations too)
