DPM interesting day

Hey All,


A very interesting day today and yesterday as I have seen many interesting information passing by.  Instead of creating a post for each of them, I will put them all together here.

First, as said in a previous post, DPM 2010 RC is out and I’m already starting to play with it. 

Second, the DPM team has released a list of the Tested hardware VSS provider that are tested and found compatible with DPM for protecting virtual machines deployed on Clustered Shared Volumes.

See http://blogs.technet.com/dpm/archive/2010/02/05/tested-hardware-vss-provider-table.aspx for more information.

Another post is written on Hyper-V and protecting it with DPM 2010 beta.  Some great powershell scripts are posted there for auto protecting your new virtual machines also on the Secondary DPM if you have a situation like that.

See http://blogs.technet.com/dpm/archive/2010/02/08/hyper-v-protection-with-dpm-2010-beta-how-to-automatically-protect-new-virtual-machines-on-a-secondary-dpm.aspx

Finally, there is a webcast about Reducing IT Costs in the Datacenter with System Center which I’m going to try to view as soon as possible because this sounds very interesting.

Check http://blogs.technet.com/systemcenter/archive/2010/02/09/reducing-it-costs-in-the-datacenter-with-system-center.aspx for the webcast


Till next, which will be about doing an upgrade from the DPM 2010 beta to RC
