  • Cloud Storage
    • Recovery Manager for Active Directory Disaster Recovery Edition provides the ability to set up and use dedicated cloud storage locations for backups. Cloud Storage in combination with Tier 1 storage options ensure that your critical backups are always available in case of disaster.
    • By using Cloud Storage you can store your AD and BMR backups in the cloud ensuring that your backups are always accessible and protect your backup files with storage account properties such as immutability policies, and redundancy with different types of replication.
  • Secure Storage Server
    • Recovery Manager for Active Directory Disaster Recovery Edition 10.2.1 has enhanced the Secure Storage server feature.
    • New features available:
    1. New Secondary Storage tab on Computer Collection Properties to configure a Secure Storage server and provide required access credentials to read backups to be copied to secondary storage.
    2. New PowerShell cmdlets Set-RMADStorageServerAllowedVolumes and Get-RMADStorageServerAllowedVolumes available in the Management Shell to configure which volumes are allowed to store backups.
    3. The Secure Storage server properties dialog displays used and free space on each volume on the server including a warning indication when space is low.
    4. New validation performed during the installation of a Secure Storage agent to ensure the Secure Storage server is a standalone server and not domain joined.
