Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2007
When you create your deployment plan for Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2007, you should plan your protection groups first because the needs of the protection groups—size, rate of data change, location, recovery goals—will inform your decisions for creating and locating DPM servers and tape libraries.
After you plan your protection groups, you can complete the deployment plan by determining the configurations of DPM servers necessary to protect your data most efficiently. The topics in this section include security and management considerations that might influence your deployment plan.
