Microsoft has shipped Data Protection Manager 2010, a comprehensive backup-and-restore solution designed specifically for supporting Windows file and application servers and clients. System Center Data Protection Manager 2010 allows on-going,non-disruptive backup of both physical and virtual computers to onsite or remote hard disks plus off-line recording to magnetic tape, and enables rapid, easy-to-manage recovery of whole servers or individual files. DPM's disk backup provides the speed and reliability you need to protect your vital business data without disrupting network operations, while Data Protection Manager's mag tape support keeps long-term archiving expenses affordable and helps ensure adherence to contractual or regulatory retention requirements.
Many small businesses still rely on obsolete, tape-based backup and restore technology. In the event of a serious system breakdown, this can lead to substantial revenue loss because of extended system downtime and, possibly, unrecoverable data. Tape-only protection procedures are unreliable because tape media is subject to mechanical wear and requires a tightly maintained warehousing environment. Microsoft reported a whopping 17% failure incidence when using mag tape to back up their in-house operational servers. Mag tape is also inherently low performance. Consequently, backup processes require periodic downtime, restoration snap shots are often separated by days rather than minutes, and the restore process is long and tedious.
DPM 2010 solves these problems by using fast, reliable disks for short-term backup and restricting tape to long-term archiving. The speed of hard disks allows ongoing transparent backup, reduces recovery point spacing to as low as 15 minutes, and substantially cuts restoration time. For improved disk system reliability, DPM supports high availability disk clustering and fault-tolerant arrays. New features of DPM 2010 include support for Windows 2008 Hyper-V virtual machines and CSV, the ability to restore single files, Database Availability Group support for Exchange 2010, improved integration with SharePoint Server, and full data protection during a Live Migration procedure.
