Protecting Virtual Environments with System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

Deploying DPM 2010 can give an organization confidence that:
  • Virtual machines can be quickly and reliably backed up from production Hyper-V servers at frequent intervals throughout the day without a negative impact on performance.
  • DPM replicas and recovery points allow organizations to restore virtual machines not only in their most recently backed up configuration, but in any configuration that has existed throughout the defined protection period.
  • Flexible recovery options allow virtual machines to be restored not just to the original Hyper-V host, but to other Hyper-V hosts and arbitrary file locations. Features such as Item Level Recovery allow items hosted on virtual machines to be restored separately without requiring the whole virtual machine be restored.
  • Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager 2010 (DPM) provides continuous data protection for virtual machines hosted on servers running Microsoft’s Hyper-V. This protection includes online backup of supported guest virtual machines hosted on clustered or standalone systems; protection of virtual machines during the live migration process; and, item level recovery from host-level backup. DPM 2010 offers disk-to-disk, disk-to-tape, and disk-to-disk-to-tape technologies; all of which maintain the business value of a virtualized infrastructure by ensuring that it is better protected and always available.
