DPM & Firestreamer

Your data is here to stay

Data is a crucial asset of any company. That is why every IT manager or small business owner needs a data protection system. At Road2Result, we’ve seen all sorts of systems. And we’ve created our own smart backup solution that has proven its worth over the years.

Our usual approach is to combine Microsoft’s System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) with the virtual tape library Firestreamer. A complementary duo that continuously backs up all your data, thus protecting you from data loss caused by system errors and human mistakes. Need to turn back the clock? No problem.

Data protection Manager

System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) is Microsoft’s streaming backup solution. It is continuously synchronizing data to a disk on another server. That means there is no backup window at all. Any change is instantaneously mirrored on the backup disk.

Road2Result creates three backup layers for your data: a short-term, a long-term and an off-site backup. This ensures the optimal use of DPM for your data protection.


Firestreamer is a virtual tape library (VTL). It enables you to make long-term and off-site backups without any real tape drives. You simply store all your data on a more affordable NAS device instead. Don’t you love it when you find a smarter and cheaper solution that does the trick equally well?
