New webcast – DPM plus Virtual Server

On August 30th, I finally get to talk about two of my favorite technologies in the same session – data protection and virtualization.

For the past several years, two areas of computing continually get hotter and hotter – storage and virtualization.  And if I wasnt a “backup guy”, I would most certainly be a “virtual guy” (no masculinity jokes, please).

For this upcoming TechNet webcast, I will be joined by Tony Bailey, product manager for Windows Virtual Server.  We’re going to talk about:

  • Protecting Virtual Environments with DPM 2007 – courtesy of the VSS writer inside of Virtual Server 2005 R2 service pack 1

  • Hosted Backup Services – as an offering from hosting providers and Microsoft integrators, for their SMB customers

  • Disaster Recovery preparedness, with DPM 2007, Virtual Server, and the upcoming System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) 2007
