Backups and Disaster Recovery (DR) are critical to a business's survival. This chapter
covered the ins and outs of making a backup plan and outlines what you need to
know when planning your DPM deployment. An ideal backup plan must address
what to back up, the right media to use, scheduling of back ups, the procedures that
should be in place to ensure integrity of the backups, security, and privacy. Different
areas in your DPM deployment need to be planned in order for DPM to it your
specific backup and recovery goals. Backup and recovery goals encompass protection
groups, different media to support DPM, storage pools, and storage capacity plans.
To configure the DPM server you must determine how many DPM servers to deploy,
where to locate them, choose the right SQL instance, DPM security, how DPM works
with firewalls, and end-user recovery.
In the next chapter we will walk you through the entire process of installing DPM.
