Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2010
System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2010 supports the protection of front-end Web server computers of a SharePoint farm that are deployed on either physical computers or on virtualized environments such as Hyper-V.
Front-End Web Server Running on Hyper-V Virtual Machine
With DPM, you can perform backup and recovery of virtual machines that are running on Hyper-V. For more information about how to protect Hyper-V virtual machines, see Protecting Hyper-V Machines and Recovering Hyper-V Data. If the front-end Web server of a SharePoint farm is on a computer that is running on any other virtualization technology, you can protect it just as you would a physical computer.
