DPM Beta By Summer

February 26th, 2006 by Joseph Bittman MCSD .Net

The biggest commitment to what will be in V2 of DPM and the timeframe was just posted in the NG. It is now officially confirmed that V2 will have multi-domain support (not to mention the already known SQL & Exchange support)! As far as the timeline of RTM? – 2nd half of 2007. Direct quote from Karan:

“…the next release of DPM is in H2 of 2007. We will have the beta
version with Exchange and SQL support (including support for multiple
domains) by summer of this year. Given where we are in the development
cycle, it is hard to give more exact dates.”

 Did you read that closely? – Beta version “by summer of this year”!!! 🙂 Does that statement mean literally BY this summer (meaning pre-summer) or ‘by the end’? My gut level response would be somewhere DURING summer and not before, as it seems very early for another beta. But even if it occured late summer, that still is 1 year or more until RTM in 2007! What does this mean? – My guess, private beta.

Stay tuned!

    I was just going to re-post this from your blog! I had wondered whether they’d include the multi-domain support or not — guess it’s confirmed now!
