What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the recovery. The recovery of files on its own is no problem.

What needs improvement?

The DPM is pretty good, but when it comes to external devices, you can't back up to the external device. It's a huge drawback because once everything goes down, it goes down fully. We can't take a snapshot and take it outside, which is a problem. Also, when it comes to recovery, the recovery process… more»

What other advice do I have?

Because of our budget constraints, we had some issues and wanted to go ahead with this DPM because it is a Microsoft product. We were told that this particular software is known and in operation worldwide, and when it comes to backups in existence it's listed in the October 2019 report. My advice… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We wanted to use Veritas, but the support for our services was not available.

What is most valuable?

One of its most valuable features is its capability to give a BMR for all the workstations that I want to connect to or to the servers, as well as the fact that it could do an online backup off the exchange.

How has it helped my organization?

I found Microsoft DPM pretty useful. It satisfied most of my requirements. We have a local tape drive as well, so we do an online backup of the exchange onto hard discs which later gets transferred to the tape drive. It seems to be… more»

What needs improvement?

I would say the user-friendliness could be improved because I have found that my colleagues are not finding it very easy to use. I have used it quite well. I was able to do a lot of features within it, but for a frustrated user, it becomes… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We bought the system center and we bought the DPM, as well, so I didn't need to upgrade the product at a later stage. I bought the SA for one year so it didn't cost much. I can't remember what I paid for the total licensing cost of that… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Microsoft DPM an eight on a scale from1-10.

What do you think of Microsoft DPM?

What is our primary use case?

This solution is part of our main disaster recovery as well as long term recovery solution policy.

How has it helped my organization?

Moving to this solution has improved our backup capability. Zerto is only able to replicate virtual machines whereas DPM is capable of backing up everything.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that DPM has an index so individual files can be searched.

What needs improvement?

Additional Hyper-V knowledge would be great.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Microsoft DPM Questions

What is Microsoft DPM?

Data Protection Manager (DPM) is an enterprise backup system. Using DPM you can backup (copy) data from a source location to a target secondary location. If original data is unavailable because of planned or unexpected issues, you can restore data from the secondary location. Using DPM you can back up application data from Microsoft servers and workloads, and file data from servers and client computers. You can create full backups, incremental backups, differential backups, and bare-metal backups to completely restore a system.
