It allows us to recover email and items from the Exchange and Active directories, although scheduling backups could be improved.

A different kind of scheduling. We would like to do backup twice a day.

Previous Solutions

We used MS Data Protection Center, but MS changed the deployment model. DPM became part of a bigger solution which did not fit our needs.

Initial Setup

We are working with two backup servers. It took a little time to figure out how to take a backup of the backup.

Implementation Team

We did it in-house.

Other Solutions Considered

No other options evaluated.

Disclosure: IT Central Station contacted the reviewer to collect the review and to validate authenticity. The reviewer was referred by the vendor, but the review is not subject to editing or approval by the vendor.

Scheduling twice a day would be a good option. As a workaround you could create a second job which is a copy of the first to get around this until such time a new scheduling engine is created. That is if they go that route.
