I was allready to go for a full scale trial of R1Soft's CDP before purchasing it then I looked at the pricing on MS DPM 2007.
R1 CDP comes with support which is good but they are based in america.
MS DPM doesn't have support but it could be bought and then MS have more local support.
If anyone has anything good or bad to say about dpm would like to hear it.
We use DPM. I find it great for disk-disk backup, but for tapes, I have had nothing but problems. I've had a support call open with MS for a few weeks now becuase of various issues and none of them seem to be easily solved - problems inventoring tapes, the software not seeing the correct amount of tapes in the library and then the way it allocates data to tape - even with Data Colocation (where you can have multiple protection groups with the same rentention period on one tape) it doesn't seem very versitle.
