Data Protection Manager 2010 Release Candidate

Microsoft released the RC (pre-RTM) of System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2010, Microsoft’s backup solution.  As I mentioned last week, DPM 2010 includes lots of new features to simplify backups using Microsoft’s solution.  That would be the one criticism of the MS solution; 3rd party solutions seem to make it easier for the admin.

The thing that Hyper-V administrators will be eager to get their hands on when it RTM’s is the ability to backup VM’s at the host level when the VM’s are stored on a Cluster Shared Volume (CSV).

There is a MS webcast video on DPM 2010 here.  You can download the release candidate from Connect.
