Re: Cost
Valid point Lorna and nice article Howard... We use DPM with disk and tape backup. While we don't have a backup image per say we have all relevant files on tape(ext HD) and Disk. If a file gets deleted, and I am notified promptly, I can get it back in minutes.

However I can see the benefit in having this Instant recovery feature. In some industries it would almost be required I think.

Wouldn't all that disk be hideously expensive at scale? Instant is nice, but who can afford it except for a very limited number of systems?
