Ted Kummert, Microsoft Corporate VP for Data and Storage Platforms, announced the release to manufacturing of System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2007 at Storage Networking World on Oct. 17. The product will have general availability in November through all of the traditional channels, including Microsoft Partners, Volume Licenses, and 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.
In the meantime, check out the new DPM website for updated product information and download the evaluation software. Also check out my buddy Jason’s blog on the release.
BTW, did you know you can use DPM to backup the passive copies of storage groups enabled for local continuous replication and cluster continuous replication in Exchange Server 2007? Well, you do now!
