System requirements for DPM

Plan for DPM server deployment

Plan for data storage

Plan for data backup and protection

Plan for data recovery

Set up data storage—Set up tapes for long-term and short-term storage. Set up disks, and optionally Azure, for short-term storage.

Be sure you have prerequisites in place before you begin deployment.

Set up data storage

Get the protection agent installed and running on computers and servers you want to protect.

Set up the protection agent

Organize the data sources into protection groups. After protection groups are created initial replication of sources you want to protect occurs, and then backup and synchronization between source data and replicas will begin in accordance with data types and protection group settings.

The deployment section has walkthroughs for creating protection groups for specific Microsoft workloads.

Configure protection groups
