On October 17th at Storage Networking World, Ted Kummert, Microsoft Corporate VP for Data and Storage Platforms announced the release to manufacturing of System Center Data Protection Manager 2007.
With the RTM, we are now counting down the days until General Availability (GA) in November, where the product will be available through all of the traditional channels, including Microsoft Partners, Volume Licenses (VL/EA), as well as there will be OEM appliances running DPM 2007 which will be announced at our launch.
DPM 2007 is scheduled to officially launch in November at Microsoft Tech-Ed IT Forum, in Barcelona, Spain – along with other components of the System Center family of management products.
So, if you have not already done so, please visit the new DPM website for updated product information and download the evaluation software.
