Data Protection Manager

System Center Data Protection Manager

System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) is a software product from Microsoft, designed to help IT professionals manage the Windows environment. It is part of the Microsoft System Center family of products and integrates disk-to-disk and continuous data protection for reliable recovery of Windows server workloads. Previously known as Data Protection Server, DPM is Microsoft's first entry into the continuous backup/recovery industry. It also uses Microsoft's Shadow Copy technology for continuous backups.


Data Protection Manager delivers centralized backup of branch offices and within the data center, by 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. The current version, Data Protection Manager 2007, supports protection of Windows File Servers, Exchange Server, SQL Server, SharePoint, Microsoft Virtual Server and Bare Metal Restore (BMR).
