You can back up the DPM database to tape, or you can use a second DPM server in a geographically separated location to protect the primary DPM server.
If you use a second DPM server, you can restore data to protected computers directly from the secondary DPM server. The secondary DPM server can also protect computers until the primary DPM server is brought back online.
