Microsoft starts shipping updated backup software

New release of Data Protection Manager adds support for SQL Server and Exchange

Microsoft announced at the Storage Networking World conference this week that it has started shipping its System Center Data Protection Manager 2007 software.

The DPM backup software is a component of Microsoft's System Center family of management products, providing recovery from disk and archive to tape in Microsoft environments.

Ted Kummert, corporate vice president of Microsoft's data and storage platform division, told a keynote audience that the new version improves support for Microsoft's Exchange messaging software, SQL Server database, and the Sharepoint Portal Sever collaboration and content management technology.

Kummert also noted that the product can also perform continuous data-protection snapshots of Microsoft applications and file servers integrated with tape and disk media.

A complete breakdown of new DPM 2007 features is listed on a blog post by Jason Buffington, a senior product manager at Microsoft. Two weeks ago, Buffington had used his blog to announce that the updated version of DPM 2007 was available for evaluation by end users.

Kummert told his audience that Microsoft expects future versions of the data protection manager software to be able to interact with the software vendor's stable of data life-cycle management applications. He offered no further details on the matter.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
