Announcing Data Protection Manager v2 Beta
Today, at Storage Decisions in New York, Microsoft announced the public beta
of System Center Data Protection Manager version 2.

Data Protection Manager (DPM) is a key member of the Microsoft System Center
family of management products, designed to help IT Pros manage their Windows

Today, DPM 2006 delivers centralized backup for branch offices, while
providing rapid and reliable recovery of files from readily accessible disk
instead of waiting to locate and mount tapes.  Restores are achieved from an
easy-to-use IT administrator interface, as well as enabling end-users to
restore their own data directly from Windows® Explorer or any Microsoft
OfficeT application.

Data Protection Manager (DPM) v2 is the next generation of Microsoft’s data
protection platform – and the backup/restore tool that administrators of
Microsoft networks have been asking for.

DPM “v2” sets a new standard for Windows backup and recovery — delivering
continuous data protection for Microsoft application and file servers to a
seamlessly integrated secondary disk and tape solution on the DPM server.
DPM enables better backups as well as rapid and reliable recoveries for both
the IT professional and the end-user.  DPM significantly reduces the costs
and complexities associated with data protection through advanced technology
for enterprises of all sizes.

DPM version 2 provides:

·     Continuous Data Protection for Windows Application and File Servers –
DPM protects core Windows Server workloads (Exchange, SQL, SharePoint and
File) by continuously capturing data changes with application-aware
block-level agents, providing an easy-to-manage and robust disk/tape back
end platform, and one-click lossless application recovery.

·     Rapid and Reliable Recovery – DPM enables IT administrators and
end-users to easily recover data in minutes from easily accessible disk
instead of locating and restoring from less-reliable tapes.

·     Advanced Technology for Enterprises of all sizes – DPM brings together
the best aspects of CDP real-time protection with traditional tape
backup/restore to provide a comprehensive disk to disk to tape data recovery
solution.  Combined with Microsoft’s experience in Windows Server
technology, DPM v2 provides a technically advanced and comprehensive data
protection solution for the most demanding Windows environments – from the
SMB to the Enterprise.
