TechNet Webcast: Designing Microsoft Systems Center Data Protection Manager 2007 for Branch Environments (Level 300)

Wednesday, April 08, 2009 8:00 AM Pacific Time (US & Canada)

Designing Data Protection Manager 2007 (DPM) for Branch Environments highlights two different scenarios within a typical enterprise branch environment. In addition it will highlight new branch-specific features within DPM 2007 SP1. Demo's will be used wherever possible to further illustrate key objectives. The first branch scenario will discuss in depth how to design DPM 2007 for use across WAN links to either centralized or regionalized datacenters. While the second scenario focuses on locating a DPM 2007 server at the branch server. Lastly, attention will be given to DPM's rarely discussed unattended setup option to assist in automated deployments of DPM servers across the enterprise.

TechNet Webcast: Disaster Recovery with Iron Mountain and Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager 2007 (Level 300)

Wednesday, April 15, 2009 1:00 PM Pacific Time (US & Canada)

System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2007 with Service Pack 1 has three ways to help you achieve your disaster recovery goals.

DPM can replicate its data from one DPM server to another, something we call ‘DPM2DPM4DR’

DPM data onsite can be protected to the cloud using Iron Mountain’s CloudRecovery™ service for off-site vaulting with one of the world’s most trusted data retention companies

DPM can be used alongside VMM and Hyper-V to provide site-level redundancy.

In this session, we’ll walk through these capabilities, do several demonstrations, and discuss how to get started with each of these approaches.
