Microsoft DPM 2010 Support ServicesMicrosoft has published Data Protection Manager 2010, an advanced backup-and-restore solution built specifically for protecting Windows servers and workstations. System Center Data Protection Manager 2010 offers on-going,non-disruptive backup of both physical and virtual computers to onsite or remote disks plus off-line backup to magnetic tape, and enables fast, easy-to-manage restoration of entire servers or single files. Data Protection Manager's hard disk backup delivers the speed and dependability required to preserve your critical business data without interrupting network availability, while DPM's mag tape compatibility makes long-term archiving costs affordable and simplifies compliance with contractual or regulatory data retention requirements.

Many small businesses still depend on outdated, tape-based backup and recovery technology. In case of a serious system failure, this can result in substantial income loss due to extended network unavailability and, possibly, unrecoverable information. Tape-only protection solutions are unreliable because tape media is sensitive to mechanical wear and requires a tightly controlled warehousing environment. Microsoft recorded a 17% failure incidence when utilizing mag tape to back up their own production servers. Mag tape is also slow. Because of this, backup processes require scheduled server downtime, restoration points are commonly spaced apart by days rather than minutes, and the restore process is time consuming and tricky.

DPM solves these shortcomings by using high-performance, reliable disks for online backup and relegating tape to long-term archiving. The high performance of disks permits ongoing transparent backup, shrinks recovery point intervals to as little as 15 minutes, and dramatically lowers restoration time. For enhanced disk system reliability, DPM 2010 supports disk clusters and fault-tolerant storage arrays. New features of DPM 2010 include operation with Windows 2008 Hyper-V virtualization and Clustered Shared Volumes, the option to recover individual files, database availability group (DAG) support for Exchange Server 2010, improved integration with SharePoint, and full data protection during a Live Migration process.
