dBeamer!DPM (formerly DPMExplorer) Publisher's description
Built using dBeamerTM technology, dBeamer!DPM allows IT administrators to browse the data history (online snapshots) captured in the Microsoft Data Protection Manager (DPM) repository
Built using dBeamerTM technology, dBeamer!DPM allows IT administrators to browse the data history (online snapshots) captured in the Microsoft Data Protection Manager (DPM) repository, and perform an instant data recovery. The files being recovered are available for immediate access and modification by applications, while databases undergoing recovery can be attached to their service instantly. A recovering Hyper-V machine can be powered up in seconds, regardless of data size.
The Instant Data Availability capability afforded by dBeamer!DPM transforms Microsoft DPM into a critical component of a High Availability (HA) infrastructure demanded by a rapidly growing number of organizations.
When data failure occurs, dBeamer!DPM can instantly recover the affected data set from Microsoft DPM and make them available to a data server, be it a stand-alone unit or part of a cluster. In this deployment scenario, dBeamer!DPM provides high availability to a high availability (clustered-server) solution.
dBeamer!DPM can also instantly restore a virtual machine, together with the latter's data content, thus allowing a failed service to be resumed within seconds. The effect of this recovery capability on performance closely mimics that of a conventional HA solution; the difference being that instead of using a standby machine for failover, dBeamer!DPM relies on the data captured by DPM to enable instant failover. Therefore, dBeamer!DPM greatly increases the value of the data captured by DPM, elevating the latter into a critical position within an active HA infrastructure.
All IT administrators are keenly aware of the fact that performing periodic recovery drills is a best practice for their work, as only by doing so could they reasonably ensure that a recovery would be successfully carried out when a failure does occur. For a number of reasons however, few IT administrators today can afford the luxury of actively engaging in this practice. One of these reasons is that the impact of any resource-demanding activity on the backup process must always be taken into prime consideration. Another significant reason is that the recovery process itself could take hours to complete using existing methods, and IT administrators typically do not have the time necessary to perform such drills on a regular basis. With dBeamer!DPM however, these major barriers would completely vanish. An IT administrator can easily perform the recovery drill once a week, or as often as the circumstances demand it, because with only a few clicks, a data set can be instantly restored and attached to a service or application for verification. Indeed, the administrator can complete a recovery drill within mere minutes, regardless of the size of the data set. The drill can be terminated anytime, before the entire data set is fully restored, hence keeping any impact on the backup process to an absolute minimum.
dBeamer!DPM consists of two components - a server and a client. The server component must be installed on the DPM server. The client component must be installed on the destination machine where data is to be restored. The destination machine must also have a functioning copy of dBeamerTM.
dBeamer!DPM client includes a graphical user interface that allows IT administrators to browse the data history captured in the Microsoft DPM server. IT administrators can select the files, folders, or databases from the DPM server through dBeamer!DPM client, and restore the selected data back into the application server. dBeamer!DPM client issues commands and instructions to dBeamerTM on the application server to restore the selected data through a BEAM operation.
