CDP Enterprise Edition for Windows is cross-platform, high performance backup software. With CDP Enterprise Edition, you can manage data protection for both Windows and Linux environments, all from one user interface and into one disk-based data repository.

Installing the CDP Enterprise Server on a Windows Server allows you to protect data on both Windows and Linux CDP Agents. All features available for both Windows and Linux are available regardless of the operating environment you choose for your CDP Enterprise Server repository.

Below you can find requirements for a Windows Backup Repository (CDP Server).


A 64-bit Windows operating system is highly recommended. Due to the limitations of the 32-bit address space, 32-bit CDP Enterprise Servers are limited to a maximum of two (2) simultaneous backup tasks.
