Microsoft Dogfooding DPM

I saw a post today on my friend Yegor’s blog about Microsoft converting their entire internal data protection to DPM 2010.

Here is Yegor’s post: http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&langpair=ru|en&u=http://ystartsev.wordpress.com

It is good to see Microsoft "Drinking the Kool-Aid" by relying solely on DPM. There is some really good data in this case study and shows the true savings and improvement that DPM can bring to an organization. Any DPM admin or anyone looking to add DPM to their environment can use this as a way to show the benefits of DPM. Here are some highlights from the case study:

Solution

Microsoft deployed its own Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager 2010 solution to provide continuous, disk-based backup of 3.5 petabytes of data residing on 4,000 servers around the world.

Benefits

  • Backup SLA of 98 percent, 100 percent recovery success
  • Easy off-site disaster recovery
  • Capital savings of $6 million
  • Massive scalability

Here is the case study from Microsoft:
