Windows User Group

industry waves backup and recovery evolution


  • Disk based backup becoming cost effective
  • Archive and Backup diverge
  • Recovery in minutes or seconds
  • Continuous backup
  • End user recovery
  • Self healing backups


  • Majority of companies use tape
  • Tape: one size fits all
  • Backup once per day
  • Tape recoveries slow & unreliable
  • Administrators do all recoveries
Industry WavesBackup and recovery evolution

Customer Needs: Faster Recovery

  • Recovery is unreliable and painful
    • Too slow and expensive to recover files
      • typical recovery takes hours or days (slow, expensive)
    • Recoveries are unreliable
      • 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

Rapid and Reliable Recovery

Continuous and efficient protection

Customer Data Protection Pain Points

Customer Needs: Eliminating Backup Window

  • Backup is too complex, slow, and inefficient
    • Shrinking backup window
      • Growth in data makes it too difficult and time consuming to back up
    • Backups too slow/lots of manual scheduling
    • Mandated disaster recovery plans
    • 24 hours of data loss assumed with tape
    • Tape as one size fits all (file and server recovery, offsite protection and long term archive)
    • Tape inconvenience and unreliability of is # 1 challenge

Operational Simplicity

Customer Data Protection Pain Points

Customer Needs: Simpler Solution, Lower costs

  • Current backup products are too complex, costly
    • Companies spend too much time and money on backup
    • Labor is the majority of backup cost
    • Branch office data protection is cumbersome
    • Massive data growth increases costs
    • Too many tapes
    • Most disk-based backup solution are cost prohibitive
Ideal scenarios for DPM are:
  • Medium-sized data centers
    • Have aggressive Recovery Point Objective (RPO)
    • Have a faster Recovery Time Objective (RTO) than tape can provide
    • Significant costs associated with a data loss event
    • Significant backup window issues
    • Frequent file recoveries from tape
    • Few IT staff
  • Enterprises with lots of branch offices
    • Many distributed branch office file servers
    • Few or no dedicated IT staff in the branch
    • Likely to currently use existing tape infrastructure
    • High backup costs

File Servers

Tape Library

DPM Servers


  • Agents track / synchronize data from production servers to DPM
  • All agent communication initiated from DPS
  • Components: file system filter, Coordinator
  • Each protected volume has sync log (10% of volume size)
  • Agent overhead 3-5%
  • Deployed via DPM UI

DPM Server:

  • Windows Server 2003 or Storage Server
  • SQL, Reporting Services
  • Lots of disks (1.3X) – Storage Pool
  • Replica and Snapshots created for quick recovery
  • Source for tape backup


  • Multiple, schedule driven point-in-time copies
  • User-friendly, wizard driven set up and restore
  • Read only
  • Copy-on-Write, software based snapshots

Active Directory

  • Maintains ACL’s
  • Queries AD for new servers
  • Alerts for various data protection meaningful events
  • Redirects shadow copies

Tape Library

  • Backup to tape from DPM
  • VSS Writer SDK available to tape software partners to provide integration
  • Backup DPM itself
implementation scenarios branch office data protection

Corporate WAN

Implementation Scenarios Branch office data protection

Backup process

  • Agent deployed to branch office servers
  • Agent captures data and replicates to DPM server in HQ
  • DPM takes snapshots to enable recovery at multiple points in time


  • Rapid & reliable recovery including end user recovery
  • Less potential data loss
  • Easy and efficient scheduling and management
  • No trained staff needed in branch
  • Reduce tape equipment requirements in the branch

microsoft it case study
Microsoft IT Case Study
  • Pain Points
    • 17% Annual Failure rate on Tape drives
    • Per Month - 40,000 backup jobs, 16000 errors 
    • 30% annual growth in data storage ~5000 servers
  • Solution
    • 300GB Branch office data – 10 minute block level replication each night
    • 14 DPM servers replaced 130 Tape libraries, media servers and associated infrastructure in branches
      • Redmond – 4 DPM servers / 73 branch offices / 15.37 terabytes
      • Dublin -- 5 DPM servers / 35 branch offices / 22.08 terabytes
      • Singapore -- 3 DPM servers / 22 branch offices / 5.85 terabytes of data.
    • Box: HP ProLiant GL380 G4 computers with 3.6Ghz processors and 4 GB RAM.
    • Storage: EMC CLARiiON SAN with 320 GB SATA drives.
