Just curious, why TDP - is it because of compression ? SQL server standard and enterprise - both provide compression out of box. – Kin Dec 12 '13 at 15:59
With TDP the backup would be on storage and could be used for dr. – TDPSQL_Newbie Dec 12 '13 at 16:08
Native backups would also be stored on persistent media and can be used for DR as well. – Thomas Stringer Dec 12 '13 at 16:12
