Microsoft DPM 2010 ConsultingMicrosoft has shipped System Center Data Protection Manager 2010, a powerful backup-and-recovery solution designed specifically for supporting Windows file and application servers and clients. System Center Data Protection Manager 2010 allows on-going,transparent backup of physical and virtual systems to onsite or remote hard disks plus off-line backup to magnetic tape, and enables rapid, simple-to-manage recovery of whole computers or individual files. Data Protection Manager's hard disk support provides the performance and dependability required to preserve your critical business information without interrupting network availability, while Data Protection Manager's tape drive compatibility makes long-term archiving costs low and simplifies adherence to contractual or legal retention requirements.

Most small businesses still depend on outdated, tape-centric backup and recovery solutions. In the event of a major system breakdown, this can result in significant income loss due to extended system downtime and, possibly, lost records. Tape-only protection procedures are vulnerable because tape media is subject to mechanical wear and requires a carefully maintained warehousing environment. Microsoft recorded a 17% failure rate when utilizing tape to archive their own production servers. Mag tape is also slow. Consequently, backup processes call for scheduled server downtime, recovery snap shots are often spaced apart by days instead of minutes, and the restore procedure is time consuming and tedious.

DPM solves these shortcomings by supporting fast, reliable disk systems for online backup and restricting tape to long-term archiving. The high performance of disks allows ongoing transparent backup, shrinks recovery point intervals to as low as 15 minutes, and substantially lowers recovery time. For enhanced disk dependability, Data Protection Manager 2010 supports high availability disk clustering and fault-tolerant storage arrays. New features of Data Protection Manager 2010 include operation with Windows 2008 Hyper-V R2 virtualization and Clustered Shared Volumes, the ability to restore single files, Database Availability Group support for Exchange Server 2010, improved integration with SharePoint Server, and protection during a Live Migration procedure.
