August 1, 2010 – Paul Schnackenburg reviewed four backup products – and DPM 2010 came out on top.
A few excerpts from the article include:
Now in its third incarnation, DPM has grown to be a serious contender for backing up all Windows-based workloads in an efficient and reliable manner.
The strength of DPM 2010 lies in its "understanding" of Microsoft workloads. Integrating deeply with Exchange, SQL Server and SharePoint, along with other applications, it offers a deceptively simple interface that makes it easy to both back up and restore data.
For true "offsite" backups, DPM 2010 servers can protect each other over a WAN link, with data compression over the wire. Backup storage in the cloud is an option through a partnership with Iron Mountain Inc.; there's also an appliance from i365 Inc. (a business unit of Seagate Technology LLC) that runs DPM 2010 and can back up to the cloud.
Our thanks to Paul for a solid review of System Center Data Protection Manager 2010.
Have you tried DPM 2010 yet ?
