Virtual Server 2005 R2
  • Higher Availability
  • Clustering virtual machines across hosts
  • Virtual Server R2 host cluster support
  • Greater Scalability
  • X64 host support
  • Increased Performance
  • Up to 50 drop in CPU utilization
  • Improved Manageability
  • PXE booting Integrates virtual machines into
    deployment infrastructure
  • Better Interoperability
  • Linux guest support

Virtual Server 2005 R2 Overview
  • Higher Availability
  • Support for iSCSI allows clustering virtual
    machines across hosts
  • Virtual Server R2 host cluster support
  • The ability to cluster Virtual Server hosts.
  • Virtual Server host clustering uses Windows
    Server 2003 EE/DTC clustering
  • Virtual Server host clustering supports SAN,
    iSCSI or direct attached storage
  • Planned downtime
  • Servicing the host hardware or patching the host
    operating system
  • Virtual machine migration. Virtual machines can
    be moved from one cluster node to another with
    minimal downtime. (Downtime dependent on speed of
    storage infrastructure)
  • Less than 10 seconds to move 128 MB vm via 1GbE
    iSCSI (faster on SAN)
  • Unplanned downtime
  • Failover to another cluster node due to hardware
  • Other benefits
  • Guest OS agnostic. Any virtual machine running
    any OS can be moved or failover to another
    cluster node
  • FREE. Virtual Server host clustering will be
    available as a free download in the same time
    frame as Virtual Server 2005 R2

Virtual Server 2005 R2 Overview
  • Greater Scalability with 64-bit
  • x64 hosts - 32-bit guests
  • Windows Server 2003 Standard x64 Edition
  • Windows Server 2003 Enterprise x64 Edition
  • Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
  • 64-bit port of VMM and service
  • Better scaling from larger kernel address space
  • x64 systems typically can have more RAM
  • Increased Performance
  • Improved shadow page table management
  • Improved performance of guest process switching
    and memory intensive application
  • 65 performance increase in internal memory
  • Early customer saw a 50 drop in CPU utilization

Virtual Server 2005 R2 Overview
  • Improved Manageability
  • PXE booting
  • Emulated Ethernet card now supports PXE booting
  • Integrates virtual machines into deployment
  • Better Interoperability
  • Linux Addition (Q4 Beta)
  • Additional guests supported
  • Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition Service Pack
  • Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2

Virtual Server 2005 R2 Overview
  • Other improvements
  • Bug fixes
  • Improved Hyperthreading support
  • F6 Disk (SCSI driver)
  • Virtual disk pre-compactor
  • Open necessary ports at install time
  • Reserve space for saved states

Licensing Changes
  • Windows Server R2 EE
  • 1 4 model
  • Price reduction on VS 2005 R2

  • Pain points
  • Target audience
  • Introducing DPM
  • Key technologies

Industry WavesBackup and recovery evolution
Version 1.0
Customer Data Protection Pain Points
Customer Needs Faster Recovery
  • Recovery is unreliable and painful
  • Too slow and expensive to recover files
  • typical recovery takes hours or days (slow,
  • Recoveries and unreliable
  • 42 of companies had failed recovery in past year
  • 50 of customers wish for online backup
  • Data protection is labor intensive
  • All recoveries go through the server admin

Rapid and Reliable Recovery
  • Solution with DPM
  • Designed for fast recovery
  • Enables a whole new recovery scenarioend users
    files, Admins servers
  • Snapshots enable multiple recovery points
  • Recoveries are assured through verification

Customer Data Protection Pain Points
Customer Needs Eliminating Backup Window
  • Backup is too complex, slow, and inefficient
  • Shrinking backup window
  • Growth in data makes it too difficult and time
    consuming to back up
  • Backups too slow/lots of manual scheduling
  • Mandated disaster recovery plans
  • 24 hours of data loss assumed with tape
  • Tape as one size fits all (file and server
    recovery, offsite protection and long term
  • Tape inconvenience and unreliability of is 1
  • Solution with DPM
  • Faster and More Efficient Backup
  • Never do a full backup from a production server
  • Avoid the shrinking backup window

Customer Data Protection Pain Points
Customer Needs Simpler Solution, Lower costs
  • Current backup products are too complex, costly
  • Companies spend too much time and money on backup
  • Labor is the majority of backup cost
  • Branch office data protection is cumbersome
  • Massive data growth increases costs
  • Too many tapes
  • Most disk-based backup solution are cost
  • Solution with DPM
  • Designed to reduce TCO via continuous,
    disk-based backup
  • Automatic protection schedules reduce
    operational costs, increase efficiency
  • Allows end users to easily recover their own
  • Usability and easier management
  • Integration into existing environment
  • Industry standard hardware and software

Ideal Customers
  • DPM is a solution for customers of all sizes but
    the ideal customers are
  • Medium-sized data centers
  • 5 - 99 servers
  • Significant backup window issues
  • Frequent file recoveries from tape
  • Few IT staff
  • Familiarity with VSS and SCSF
  • Have a Recovery Point Objective (RPO) of
    approximately one hour
  • Have a faster Recovery Time Objective (RTO) than
    tape can provide
  • Enterprises with lots of branch offices
  • Many distributed branch office file servers
  • Few or no dedicated IT staff in the branch
  • Likely to currently use existing tape
  • High backup costs

Implementation Scenarios D2D2T backup scenario
within the data center
Active Directory
File Servers
Tape Library
DPM Server
Archive Offsite
Backup to Tape via 3rd party software
  • How Microsoft Data Protection Manager works
  • Agents are deployed on each production file
  • Capture only byte level changes
  • Agent logs all changes that occur on the
    production servers
  • Logs are replicated and stored on DPM server
    based on IT administrator policy
  • Production server not impacted
  • DPM becomes first tier of data protection

Implementation Scenarios Branch office data
  • Backup process
  • Agent deployed to branch office servers
  • Agent captures data and replicates to DPM server
    in HQ
  • DPM takes snapshots to enable recovery at
    multiple points in time
  • Benefits
  • Rapid reliable recovery including end user
  • Less potential data loss
  • Easy and efficient scheduling and management
  • No trained staff needed in branch
  • Reduce tape equipment requirements in the branch

Customers tell the best story..
  • Des Moines School district
  • Its going to save a tremendous amount of staff
    time doing recovery,
  • Almost a full-time person was doing nothing but
    that (file recoveries) . Its going to save us a
    lot of money just by allowing them to recover
    their own files.
  • Expect to shrink backup time from 36 hours to 2
    hours for 100 servers
  • New York City Department of Sanitation, Bureau of
    Motor Equipment
  • Ease of installation and use, handy management
    and reporting features, speed of recovery and
    cost-effectiveness of DPM blow the competition
  • Shrunk backup from 48 hours to 10 minutes
    drastically lowered failed backup jobs and error
    messages across 30 file servers
  • Kansas City Chiefs
  • "If you're not ready on game day, your opponent
    doesn't care." Anything we can do to get
    recovery done quicker, that's what we were
    looking for.
  • Protecting multi-terabyte Windows Storage Server

DPM And Windows Server 2003 R2
  • If client wants high availability/failover of
    branch office file servers, we recommend Windows
    Server 2003 R2.
  • For centralized backup and fast recovery of
    branch office files with multiple recovery
    points, we recommend DPM.
  • For both high availability/failover and
    centralized backup capabilities, recommend both
    Windows Server 2003 R2 and DPM.

Key Differentiators
DPM/MOM Integration
  • Control and monitor multiple DPM servers
  • All alerts and events uploaded to MOM
