Does Data Protection Manager 2007 (DMP 2007) perform encrypted backup to RDX drives?
Posted on 2009-03-30
We're a small business hosting sensitive health data. We're evaluating offsite backup options, for software licensing reasons we want to go with DPM 2007, and in terms of hardware, the RDX drive seem a good compromise between tape and disk. However, whatever media we use, the data must be encrypted. I've gained the impression that DPM will only perform encrypted backup to tape. In this case, can an RDX drive convince DPM that it is a tape drive and enable encrypted backup?
Look forward to hearing from you.
