Microsoft has released System Center Data Protection Manager 2010 (DPM 2010), a comprehensive backup-and-restore solution built by Microsoft specifically for supporting Windows servers and workstations. System Center Data Protection Manager 2010 offers on-going,transparent backup of both physical and virtual computers to onsite or remote disk drives as well as off-line copying to tape, and enables rapid, easy recovery of whole servers or individual files. Data Protection Manager's disk drive backup delivers the performance and reliability required to preserve your critical business data without disrupting network operations, while Data Protection Manager's tape support keeps long-term archiving expenses low and simplifies adherence to industry or regulatory data retention mandates.
Many small companies still depend on obsolete, tape-centric backup and recovery solutions. In case of a serious IT breakdown, this exposes them to significant revenue loss due to extended network unavailability and, possibly, lost information. Tape-based protection procedures are vulnerable because tape media is subject to wear and tear and requires a carefully controlled warehousing environment. Microsoft reported a 17% failure incidence when utilizing tape to back up their own operational servers. Tape is also inherently low performance. Consequently, backups call for periodic server downtime, recovery points are often spaced apart by days instead of minutes, and the restore procedure is time consuming and hard to manage.
DPM solves these shortcomings by using high-performance, dependable disks for online backup while relegating tape media to long-term storage. The high performance of hard disks allows continual transparent backup, shrinks recovery point spacing to as low as 15 minutes, and substantially cuts restoration time. For improved disk system reliability, DPM supports disk clusters and non-stop storage arrays. Innovations with Data Protection Manager 2010 include support for Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V R2 virtual machines and CSV, the ability to restore single files, Database Availability Group support for Exchange Server 2010, improved integration with SharePoint, and protection during a Live Migration procedure.
