1 Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager Mat Young – Storage Technology Architect, Microsoft EMEA Justin Alderson – Storage Specialists Manager, Microsoft EMEA

2 Agenda Schedule Data Protection challenges Introducing Data Protection Manager Key technologies Demos Partners

3 Schedule Tech preview – August ’04 15 early adopter customers + 20 early adopter partners Publicly Announced – September 04 Beta – Starting April ’05 Release – Summer ‘05

4 Importance of Data Information is the enterprises’ most valuable asset Information must be –available –accessible –replicated –backed up Exploding growth in Windows-based storage Windows-powered services becoming mission-critical requiring 24x7 availability Data protection is an integral component of enterprise platform “If your storage system goes down, whole IT infrastructure becomes useless” - Gartner, March ‘03

5 Customer Needs: Lower costs, save time Fast, efficient backup Customer Data Protection Pain Points Costs are too high –Too many tapes –Labor is the majority of backup cost –Massive data growth increases costs Backup is too complex and slow –Shrinking backup window –Backups too slow/lots of manual scheduling –24 hours of data loss assumed –Tape as one size fits all (file and server recovery, offsite protection and long term archive) –Tape inconvenience and unreliability of is # 1 challenge Lower costs, increase efficiency Rapid and Reliable Recovery Recovery is unreliable & painful –Typical recovery takes hours or days –42% of companies had failed recovery in past year –50% of customers wish for online backup verification –Data protection is labor intensive –All recoveries go through the server admin

6 Introducing Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager What is System Center Data Protection Server (DPM)? –Data Protection Manager is a new server product from Microsoft that enables disk-based backup and recovery of Windows file data. How does it work? –Agents track and periodically synchronize file data from production servers to the DPM server –Point in time copies are created for quick recovery on the DPM Server –Designed to be interoperable with 3 rd party tape backup software for offsite data protection

7 Rapid and reliable recovery Best value Continuous and efficient protection Data Protection Manager Customer benefits

8 Data Protection Manager Customer Benefit 1 Rapid & Reliable Recovery Current customer backup issues T oo slow and expensive to recover files Recoveries are unreliable All recoveries go through the IT staff Solution with DPM Designed for fast recovery - customers recover files in minutes Enables a whole new recovery scenario – allowing end users to easily recover their own files Snapshots enable multiple recovery points Recoveries are assured through verification

9 Continuous & efficient protection Data Protection Manager Customer Benefit 2 Current customer backup issues Growth in data = too difficult and time consuming to back up 24 hours of data loss assumed with tape Shrinking backup window Solution with DPM Faster & More Efficient Backup Never do a full backup from a production server again Avoid the shrinking backup window Perform online verification of backup

10 Data Protection Manager Customer Benefit 3 Best Value Current customer backup issues Companies still spend too much time and money on backup  Most disk based back up solutions cost prohibitive  Competing solutions not as easy to use Solution with DPM Designed to reduce TCO via continuous, disk-based backup Automatic protection schedules = reduce operational costs Allows end users to easily recover their own files Usability and easier management Integration into existing environment Industry standard hardware & software

11 Ideal Customer Medium-sized data centers –Have between 5 and 49 servers –Backup window issues –Fairly Frequent file recoveries from tape –Familiarity with VSS and SCSF –Have a Recovery Point Objective (RPO) of approximately one hour –Have a faster Recovery Time Objective (RTO) than tape can provide

12 DPM - Installation Initial scenario File Servers / Storage Servers Active Directory Clients Tape Library Archive OffsiteBackup To Tape DPM Server: Windows Server 2003 Lots of (inexpensive) disks Similar specs to a NAS box DPM Application Installed installed in parallel to Tape Solution; complimentary DPM Server

13 DPM - Installation Detecting new file servers on network File Servers / Storage Servers Active Directory Clients Tape Library Archive OffsiteBackup To Tape Auto-discovery of Servers and Volumes: Scheduled discovery job Queries AD for new servers Admin is alerted to new servers Admin is never surprised again! DPM Server New Server “Exec1” Set up Protection? New Server “Exec1”

14 DPM in Action Disk to disk to tape backup scenario File Servers Active Directory Clients Tape Library Archive Offsite Backup to Tape via 3 rd party software How Microsoft Data Protection Manager works Agents are deployed on each production file server Agent logs all changes that occur on the production servers Logs are replicated and stored on DPM server based on IT administrator policy DPM Server

15 DPM in Action File server backups File Servers Active Directory Clients Tape Library Archive OffsiteBackup To Tape Daily Backups: “Lose no more than 1 hour” Sync with File Servers daily Daily restore points (point in time shadow copies) DPS Server Tuesday Monday Wednesday Thursday Friday Time = Continuous (log changes on File Servers)Time = 1:00am (move log files to DPS Server and apply)Time = 2:00am (point in time shadow copies)

16 DPS Management Console MMC Snap-In Used by administrator to configure and monitor protection, recover, and run reports Can be run directly on DPM server or accessed remotely via terminal services

17 Key Technologies Shadow Copies of Shared Folders and DPM Customer Scenarios –Shadow Copy of Shared Folders (SCSF) Accidentally Deleted - User can NOW recover files THEMSELVES Forgot to “Save as” - User can NOW recover files that were accidentally overwritten Empowers users to help themselves –System Center Data Protection Manager Backup and restore entire servers, volumes, shares Allows snapshots to be taken of production data without disconnecting the application accessing the data Snapshot can be backed up to tape

18 Recovery Experience
