Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager 2007 (DPM)

Maximizing Protection of Microsoft SharePoint with Data Protection Manager

DPM 2007 is designed for the SharePoint Administrator or the IT generalist and uses wizards and workflows to help ensure that you can protect your data – without requiring an advanced degree, training or certification in storage and backup technologies.


DPM presents the data to be protected in the same context as users access it. In DPM 2007, platform owners can manage backups from the perspective of the application. SharePoint administrators simply select the farm to be protected; DPM understands what components need to be backed up

Similarly, SQL Server administrators choose databases, Exchange administrators select storage groups, and managers of virtual environments choose virtual machines and file server owners choose file shares.
