Microsoft Data Protection Manager 2012
We currently use Backup Exec 2012 to perform daily D2D and Friday tapes to a Single LTO4 Drive using 800gb/1.6tb tapes.
I have been testing Microsoft DPM 2012 creating a protection group for each server I want to backup (is this the right approach). Happy with the D2D facilities that DPM provides (current 5 day rention), but looking at the writing long term data to tape can multiple protection groups be written to a single tape?
I would like DPM to produce weekly and monthly tapes as we do with Backup Exec, could and one offer some advice!
Are there any considerations for protecting the DPM server? I was thinking of buying a HP Micro Server and using this to as secondary DPM server to backup the primary.

You can put multiple protection groups on one tape through the 'co location' feature, more details here - HYPER-V and SYSTEM CENTER: Media Co-location in DPM 2012
