Microsoft DPM - The best backup/restore solution for SharePoint 2010
We’ve all been in this situation – after a good long SharePoint based portal implementation – we start scratching our head to figure out what's the best way to back up the SharePoint farm and drown in the multitude of options – SharePoint native backup, stsadm or 3rd party products like AvePoint or EMC.Now, Microsoft makes our life very easy by announcing Data Protection Manager as the main backup/restore application for SharePoint 2010.Well, you might think that’s just another one of the many methods to protect SharePoint 2010 but DPM hides under its hood some pretty cool features which make it the #1 backup/restore application for SharePoint 2010. Here are some of them:
DPM is a great SharePoint 2010 backup/restore solution. And the fact it comes from Microsoft is a big advantage over other solutions as it integrates well with SharePoint within the backup/restore processes.It very important to mention that DPM actually is the main Microsoft backup/restore solution for other Microsoft products such as Active Directory, Exchange, SQL, Virtual Server, file shares, System State and more. So it’s a great new backup/restore product family from Microsoft.
