Lowers overall TCO Focus on your backup needs – not on learning new backup techniques and idiosyncrasies. Helps create dynamic IT Take a pro-active approach to backups. DPM does not require a SAN to snap and remount VHDs elsewhere - it can use DAS, or any other locally mounted disk, on the Host, as well as the DPM server. DPM does not require 3rd party backup software, even after the VHD is secured - its a complete solution on its own You can run DPM 2007 SP1 on the Hyper-V host itself, providing a self-contained solution. DPM does not leave the VM dormant during the entire backup -- if it has to hibernate the VM, it brings it down, snaps it, and brings it right back up again. But for most Windows guests, it can protect with no downtime at all! And because DPM can replicate from one DPM server to another (DPM-2-DPM-4-DR), you can easily replicate your VHDs offsite to i365 i365 EVault Data Protection Solutions The EVault product family enables the protection and recovery of businesses mission critical data with Software, SaaS, Managed Services and Appliances i365 Metalincs E-Discovery Solutions The MetaLINCS product family enables the discovery, search, and analysis of electronic information with Software, Services & Appliances i365 Retention Management Solutions i365 solutions for data retention, migration, restoration services, bridging the needs of E-Discovery and Data Preservation Migrate customer from Lotus Notes faster, easier and less expensive than ever!
