Microsoft has released System Center Data Protection Manager 2010, an advanced backup-and-restore solution built by Microsoft specifically for supporting Windows servers and workstations. Data Protection Manager 2010 allows continual,non-disruptive backup of physical and virtual computers to local or remote disks as well as off-line backup to tape, and enables rapid, easy-to-manage recovery of entire computers or single files. DPM's hard disk backup provides the speed and dependability you need to protect your vital business information without disrupting network operations, while Data Protection Manager's tape support keeps long-term archiving expenses affordable and simplifies adherence to industry or legal retention requirements.
Most small companies continue to depend on outdated, tape-based backup and recovery solutions. In the event of a major IT breakdown, this can lead to significant revenue loss because of prolonged network unavailability and, possibly, unrecoverable information. Tape-based backup procedures are vulnerable because the media is subject to wear and tear and requires a carefully maintained physical environment. Microsoft reported a whopping 17% failure incidence when utilizing mag tape to archive their own operational servers. Mag tape is also slow. Because of this, backups require scheduled server downtime, recovery snap shots are often separated by days rather than minutes, and the restoration process is time consuming and hard to manage.
Data Protection Manager resolves these problems by using high-performance, dependable hard disks for short-term backup while restricting tape to long-term storage. The high performance of disks permits ongoing transparent backup, shrinks recovery point spacing to as little as 15 minutes, and substantially cuts recovery time. For enhanced disk system reliability, DPM 2010 supports disk clusters and non-stop storage arrays. New features of Data Protection Manager 2010 include support for Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V R2 virtualization and Clustered Shared Volumes, the option to recover individual files, Database Availability Group support for Exchange 2010, improved operation with SharePoint Server, and full data protection during a Live Migration procedure.
