My buddy and fellow achievement point aficionado Jason just announced SP1 for DPM 2007 here:
Here are some of the highlights for more information see the above link to Jason’s post.
- SQL Server now does 2008, can back up databases in parallel, and supports mirrored instances
- SharePoint got HUGE optimizations, between the catalog improvements and that the index/search is now in the UI
- Exchange can now be protected from the SCR node - something truly unique to DPM
- Hyper-V is now protect-able, which is probably the most requested feature from those requesting access to the beta bits. And that makes sense, since Microsoft customers that were standardizing on Hyper-V over another hypervisor have been looking for a Microsoft backup solution for their platform.
Here are some additional Resources on Service Pack 1
