Data Protection Manager delivers centralized backup of branch offices and within the data center, by near-continuously protecting changed files at the byte-level to a secondary disk, which can then be backed up to tape. This also enables rapid and reliable recovery from an easily accessible disk instead of waiting to locate and mount tapes.

Data Protection Manager 2006 was released on September 27, 2005 at Storage Decisions in New York.[1][2] The current version, Data Protection Manager 2012, supports protection of Windows file servers, Exchange Server, Microsoft SQL Server, SharePoint and Microsoft Virtual Server. It features bare-metal restore.

Supported workloads

DPM offers support for a variety of Microsoft Workloads. However it should be noted that support varies between versions with old operating systems being removed from new versions.
