Microsoft DPM 2010 ConsultingMicrosoft has published System Center Data Protection Manager 2010, an advanced backup-and-recovery solution built specifically for protecting Windows file and application servers and clients. System Center Data Protection Manager 2010 offers continual,non-disruptive backup of physical and virtual computers to local or remote disk drives as well as off-line backup to tape, and enables fast, easy restoration of entire computers or individual files. Data Protection Manager's disk drive backup provides the performance and dependability required to protect your vital business information without disrupting network operations, while DPM's mag tape support makes long-term archiving expenses affordable and helps ensure compliance with industry or regulatory retention mandates.

Many small businesses still rely on outdated, tape-centric backup and recovery technology. In case of a serious system failure, this exposes them to substantial revenue loss because of extended network downtime and, possibly, lost information. Tape-only protection procedures are vulnerable because the media is sensitive to mechanical wear and requires a tightly maintained warehousing environment. Microsoft reported a 17% failure rate when utilizing mag tape to archive their in-house operational servers. Tape is also inherently slow. Because of this, backups require periodic server downtime, restoration snap shots are commonly spaced apart by days instead of minutes, and the restore process is time consuming and hard to manage.

Data Protection Manager gets around these problems by using high-performance, reliable disk systems for online backup and relegating tape to long-term storage. The speed of disks permits continual non-disruptive backup, shrinks recovery point intervals to as low as 15 minutes, and dramatically lowers recovery time. For enhanced disk system reliability, Data Protection Manager supports disk clusters and non-stop arrays. New features of DPM 2010 include operation with Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V R2 virtualization and CSV, the ability to restore single files, Database Availability Group support for Exchange 2010, enhanced operation with SharePoint, and protection during a Live Migration process.
