System Center Data Protection Manager 2010 tested hardware VSS provider for backup of Virtual machines deployed on Clustered Shared Volumes

The table below contains the list of VSS hardware provider tested to be compatible with DPM for protecting virtual machines deployed on clustered shared volumes (CSV).

The fact that a VSS hardware provider for a certain SAN is not listed below does not mean that it is not compatible, but that it has not been tested. If you have questions regarding VSS hardware provider for certain SAN not listed in the tables below, please post it in the DPM newsgroup (http://www.microsoft.com/communities/newsgroups/list/en-us/default.aspx?dg=microsoft.public.dataprotectionmanager) or send an email to dpmsanhs@microsoft.com.

Note: The product group will continue to work with our existing and new partners to keep the information on this page updated.

  • This gets updated if new information available, got just updated with  EMC and HDS

  • Can anyone tell me if the HDS USPV/M is supported?

  • Any word on HP P4000s  (Lefthand SAN)

  • Any word on HP P4000 with SAN/iQ 9.0?

  • SAN/iQ 9.0 and version 9 of their VSS Hardware provider work with DPM and Hyper-V R2 clusters.

  • Any news about DataCore - SanSymphony?

  • Do you support Tandberg LTO 4 H/H  on DPM 2010

    using windows server 2008 r2 64 bit

  • Bill,

    We use a Tandberg T24 24-slot tape library with LTO4 H/H connected via SAS on DPM2010.  The Tandberg LTO4 HH is recognized as an IBM LTO4 HH.  Performance is >100MB/sec as has been previously quoted by MSFT.  We run DPM on 2008 x64 and have not tested R2.  Hope this helps.

  • Can anyone tell me if the Hp P2000 G3 is supported?

  • ftp.hp.com/.../579167-004_VDS_VSS_Provider_RelNote.htm

    can MS confirm?

  • This list really should be updated.

    I've heard DPM 2012 will go through a more extensive testing phase as far as HW providers, but many of us will be on 2010 for quite some time and knowing what works and what may not definitely helps.
