DPM pricing
DPM pricing
DPM 2010 pricing can be confusing on the Microsoft site. In the following chart
the DPM licensing and pricing has been broken down in a way that is easier to
understand. DPM 2010 pricing is as follows:
DPM type
DPM 2010 Enterprise
$432 This allows you to back up file servers as well as
application-specific servers. Some
applicationspeciic servers include: SharePoint, SQL 2008,
Exchange, and Hyper-V. This license gives you the
power to do bare metal restore and is required if you
are backing up 2003 and 2003 R2 servers using SRT
(System Recovery Tool was a tool used for BMR with
DPM 2007. In DPM 2010. SRT is only used for BMR
when protecting 2003 servers. DPM 2010 has BMR
natively built in for Windows 2008 servers.)
DPM 2010 Standard
$158 This license gives you file level protection as well
as system protection such as system state and BMR.
With this license you cannot back up
applicationspeciic servers such as Exchange or SharePoint.
DPM 2010 Client license
This license is for backing up client computers
on your network. This is good for Windows XP,
Windows Vista, and Windows 7 only. This does
include system state and backing up remote staff
No license is required for the DPM Server in DPM 2010. You can have as
many DPM servers as you like as long as the servers being protected are
appropriately licensed as per the previous table.
All of the above licenses are considered to be Management Licenses (MLs). MLs are
legal rights and have no digital footprint. This means MLs are not installed on the
managed device (OSE) or placed in the registry. It is up to the customer to make
sure they are in compliance with licensing. DPM 2010 requires ML licenses for each
managed device (OSE). OSE stands for Operating System Environment. An OSE
covers all OSs running in any environment (physical or virtual). A managed device
would be more fitting. A managed device is any server or client that is protected by
DPM. However an ML is not required for any managed device that is functioning
solely as a network infrastructure device. An example of this would be an ISA
server. The ISA server performs network functions such as being a firewall or a load
balancing device.
