2015 – 2016 will be a beautiful Microsoft year with Awesome new technologies in Windows Server 2016, Hyper-V, System Center, Azure, and we will Bring
Microsoft Azure Cloud Services to your Datacenter with AzureStack.
A lot of New Microsoft information and Great solutions for blogging and sharing with the Community on Social Media.
Microsoft is happy to announce the release of their newest free ebook, Microsoft System Center Data Protection for the Hybrid Cloud (ISBN 9780735695832), by Shreesh Dubey, Vijay Tandra Sistla, Shivam Garg, and Aashish Ramdas; Mitch Tulloch, Series Editor.
If you are responsible for architecting and designing the backup strategy for your organization, especially if you’re looking for ways to incorporate cloud backup into your business continuity scenarios, this book is for you. With the increasing trends in virtualization as well as the move to the pubic cloud, IT organizations are headed toward a world where data and applications run in on-premises private clouds as well as in the public cloud. This has key implications for data protection strategy, and it is important to choose the solution that provides the same level of data protection you have afforded so far while allowing you to harness the power of the public cloud.
This book covers improvements added in DPM 2012 R2 as well as the integration with Microsoft Azure Backup service
In this fast Hybrid Cloud world where a lot is changing, backing up your data is important for Enterprise organisations.
With System Center 2012 R2 Data Protection Manager you can do a lot. I made a High Level Design of our
System Center 2012 R2 DPM POD’s ( Dell PowerEdge R620 Server with MD1200 SAS Storage Enclosures ).
For the first time we skipped to buy a Tape Library for long time protection, we now backup to Microsoft Azure Backup Vault storage for long time protection. So we have no tape management any more.
When you have more System Center 2012 R2 Data Protection Manager Servers in your Datacenter, you can think of Scale-Out protection where you are more flexibel in your Datacenter to save your data.
Here you can read more about System Center 2012 R2 DPM Scale-Out protection
System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) offers backup to Azure for long term protection by leveraging Azure Backup. The first step in configuring DPM-A (DPM backup to Azure) is to register the DPM server to the Azure Backup vault. This article explains how the registration process is greatly simplified and enhanced with Update rollup UR4 for DPM.
Till Update Rollup 3 (UR3), users were required to generate a self-signed certificate and upload this certificate to the backup vault through the portal. During the registration process, the certificate was used to register the server to the backup vault. While this process ensured security, it was a bit overwhelming.
With UR4, registration of the DPM server to the Azure Backup vault is simplified without compromising on the security by using a concept called “vault credential”. A vault credential is an authentication entity that can be downloaded from the backup vault on the portal. The vault credential is valid for 48 hours from the downloaded time and can only be used during the registration process to authenticate the server with the backup vault.
