Best to install DPM 2016 on base or virtual server?

I need to install Microsoft Data Protection Manager (DPM) to back up a Server 2016 Hyper-V base server and the 10 Server 2016 virtual servers that are running on this base server.

I already have a Server 2016 virtual server setup with System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 2016. Is it best to install DPM on the base server, on the same server running SCCM 2016, or on its own Server 2016 virtual server?

on its own virtual machine.
DPM is very I/O intensive. Can it run fine in a VM? Yes, if you provide it sufficient IOPS. But keep in mind that it can easily overload the I/O capacity of a server!

You definitely do NOT want to install it in a Hyper-V host OS.

Can you also provide me with guides on implementing and configuring Data Protection Manager (DPM)? Please see my other question here.

OK and then I can setup DPM to backup to a NAS or SAN?
