Microsoft has unveiled a public beta of its Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager. This disk-based backup and recovery program is aimed to integrate disk-to-disk and near-continual data protection into Microsoft Windows servers.
DPM cuts the amount of time required for data backups by backing up changes to the data instead of the entire data set, said Narasimhan. It discovers servers through Active Directory, and watches for changes to the data. DPM also allows data snapshots to be taken in order to maintain point-in-time copies.
