If you are a Microsoft Partner in the United States, there is a new campaign focused on System Center Data Protection Manager 2007 (DPM).
This campaign is designed for partners that already work with Microsoft applications protected by DPM, like SQL Server, Exchange Server and SharePoint Server.
You can become a DPM hero by simply learning about DPM solutions and how to share them with your customers.
To get started, visit the http://www.dpmpartner.com site. You need to be a Microsoft partner in order to login to that web site.
Once on the site, you should check the DPM Partner Overview video (takes about 30 minutes), which covers licensing, architecture, deployment, and business opportunities surrounding DPM 2007.
There is an assessment at the end. If you get 8 of the 10 questions right, you will get a free retail copy of DPM 2007 Server and one DPM Enterprise Management License (one set per partner).
You’ll also enter the monthly drawing for a Samsung SPF-83V WiFi digital picture frame (details at http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-SPF-83V-8-Inch-Wireless-Digital/dp/B000YA1Z14/).
This new campaign is open until June 30, 2009 to all members of the Microsoft Partner Program (MSPP) in the USA, at any level (Registered, Certified and Gold).
To check all the details and restrictions, please read the official rules at http://microsoft.mrmpslc.com/dpmassessmenttool/rules.aspx.
