Data Protection Manager 2007 RTMs

Microsoft on Wednesday announced the release to manufacturing of System Center Data Protection Manager 2007, the company's disk and tape backup and recovery server for Microsoft application and file servers.

New features since the DPM 2006 release include support for Exchange Server 2003 and 2007, including clustered configurations and restoration at the Exchange database, storage group or mailbox level; support for SQL Server 2000 and 2005, including mirrored clusters; and support for Microsoft SharePoint, both MOSS 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0.

While Microsoft won't say how much business it's done on DPM 2006, Gartner sized the backup and recovery market for Windows Systems at about $1.5 billion in 2005. According to a Microsoft FAQ on the new release, "We entered this market both for revenue opportunity and for strategic reasons relating to customer satisfaction with current third party data protection offerings for the Windows Server System family and for Microsoft Applications."
