Co-Locating Data on Disk

Updated: April 21, 2010

Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2010

In System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2010, you must have one replica volume and one recovery point volume per protected data source. DPM 2010 supports data co-location, which allows you to have multiple data sources mapping on a single replica and recovery point volume. This enables you to store data more efficiently on a DPM server.

DPM supports co-location for the following data sources:

  • Hyper-V virtual machines

  • Laptop/desktop

  • SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008 databases
