Update Rollup 11: Protect VMware VMs with DPM!

Hi,

Microsoft just released Update Rollup 11 for DPM and today is the day many of us has been waiting for: Support for backup and restore of VMware virtual machines at vCenter/ESXi-level!

Here is some other highlights of VMware VM backup with DPM:
  • Agentless backup
  • Backup at vCenter or ESXi level
  • Backup VMware VM folders
  • Ability to do ILR
  • Protect large data center using DPM Scale Out
  •  Backup to Disk/Cloud
Want to start testing the new features right away?
  1. Go the Microsoft Update Catalog and download UR11 (Remeber: No restart needed for production-agents if you are UR6 or above!) :
