Microsoft has shipped Data Protection Manager 2010 (DPM 2010), a comprehensive backup-and-recovery solution designed specifically for supporting Windows file and application servers and clients. System Center Data Protection Manager 2010 offers on-going,non-disruptive backup of both physical and virtual systems to onsite or off-site disks as well as off-line backup to tape, and permits rapid, simple-to-manage restoration of whole servers or individual files. Data Protection Manager's disk support provides the speed and dependability required to preserve your critical business data without interrupting network operations, while DPM's tape drive support keeps long-term archiving expenses affordable and helps ensure adherence to contractual or legal retention mandates.
Many small companies still rely on obsolete, tape-based backup and recovery solutions. In case of a serious system breakdown, this can lead to significant revenue loss due to prolonged system unavailability and, in the worst case, lost data. Tape-only backup procedures are vulnerable because the media is subject to mechanical wear and requires a tightly controlled physical environment. Microsoft recorded a 17% failure rate when utilizing tape to back up their in-house production servers. Tape is also slow. Because of this, backup processes require scheduled downtime, recovery points are commonly spaced apart by days rather than minutes, and the restore procedure is time consuming and tricky.
DPM solves these problems by supporting fast, dependable disks for online backup while restricting tape to long-term storage. The speed of hard disks permits continual non-disruptive backup, reduces recovery point intervals to as low as 15 minutes, and dramatically cuts restoration time. For improved disk system reliability, Data Protection Manager supports disk clustering and non-stop arrays. New features of Data Protection Manager 2010 include support for Windows 2008 Hyper-V virtualization and CSV, the option to restore single files, Database Availability Group support for Exchange Server 2010, enhanced operation with SharePoint, and full data protection during a Live Migration process.
