Cons
"Additional Hyper-V knowledge would be great.""It needs portability for other vendors. It is good for backing up Microsoft servers, but it doesn't support third-party solutions such as Oracle Database. It depends on Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy, especially for Hyper-V, which has a lot of problems. They should enhance the Volume Shadow Copy functionality. Its reporting should also be better. Reporting is too weak in DPM.""You have only a few settings and if you change them for some special configurations, it's very difficult.""The user interface can be improved quite a bit.""There is a very poor online user community in terms of people blogging about their experiences with DPM.""Compatibility and integration with other products needs improvement.""Management reporting could be improved."

More Microsoft DPM Cons →

"There isn't much to improve. They just need to follow the trend or the development of other Linux products. Follow in terms of making the product compatible with new versions of Linux. They just need to include as many versions for Linux as possible.""The solution is pretty stable right now, however, we believe that the solution could be made to be even more stable.""They could be more customer-friendly.""The integration needs improvement."

    Overview
    Data Protection Manager (DPM) is an enterprise backup system. Using DPM you can backup (copy) data from a source location to a target secondary location. If original data is unavailable because of planned or unexpected issues, you can restore data from the secondary location. Using DPM you can back up application data from Microsoft servers and workloads, and file data from servers and client computers. You can create full backups, incremental backups, differential backups, and bare-metal backups to completely restore a system.
