• A Back up SLA report that can be configured and e-mailed to you daily

• When backing up SharePoint 2010, no recovery farm is required for item
level recoveries for example: recover SharePoint list items, and recovery
of items in SharePoint farm using host-headers. This is an improvement to
SharePoint that DPM takes advantage of
• Better back up for mobile or disconnected employees (This requires VPN or
• End users of protected clients are able to recover their data. The end users
can do this without an Administrator doing anything.
• DPM is Live Migration aware. We already know DPM can protect VMs on
Hyper-V. Now DPM will automatically continue protection of a VM even
after it has been migrated to a different Hyper-V server. The Hyper-V server
has to be a Windows Server 2008 R2 clustered server.
• DPM2DPM4DR (DPM to DPM for Disaster Recovery) allows you to back up
your DPM to a second DPM. This feature was available in 2007 and it can
now be set up via the GUI. You can also perform chained DPM back up so
you could have DPM A, DPM B, and DPM C. Before you could only have a
secondary DPM server backing up a primary DPM server.
• With the 2010 release, a single DPM server's scalability has been increased
over its previous 2007 release:
° DPM can handle 80 TB per server
° DPM can back up up to 100 servers
° DPM can back up up to 1000 clients
° DPM can back up up to 2000 SQL databases
As you can see from the previous list there are many enhancements to DPM 2010
that will benefit Administrators as well as end users.
