In this video, Symon Perriman meets with Prabu Rambadran, a Product Marketing Manager in Windows Server & Management, to discuss the upcoming changes in System Center 2012 SP1 for Data Protection Manager (DPM). First Prabu gives an overview of the feature enhancements in DPM for System Center 2012 before focusing on the improvements coming in Service Pack 1 (SP1) and how they take advantage of Windows Server 2012 capabilities. Next Prabu and Symon discuss improvements with backing up and restoring virtual machines, including host-based backups, VM backups, and backups for applications running inside VMs. They spend a few minutes talking about the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) and the differences of VSS-aware applications as regards backup. Then they discuss the differences between backup and disaster recovery, and how to utilize the Hyper-V Replica feature in Windows Server 2012. Finally, they discuss improved integration to backup Linux and Unix VMs, along with simplified management of multiple DPM servers through System Center 2012 SP1 Operations Manager (SCOM). Prabu ends the interview by showing a demo of backup and restore capabilities to Windows Azure at [17:35].
