Hi All :
Data protection is essential to a business or organization, and System Center 2012 Data Protection Manager (DPM) is an effective solution for providing that protection.
DPM includes the following features:
You can back up the DPM database to tape, or you can use a second DPM server in a geographically separated location to protect the primary DPM server.
If you use a second DPM server, you can restore data to protected computers directly from the secondary DPM server. The secondary DPM server can also protect computers until the primary DPM server is brought back online.
Now , you can download System Center 2012 DPM RC to testing , about deployment DPM 2012 RC , you can reference this document .
