System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2007 is a server software application that enables disk-based and tape-based data protection and recovery for computers in and across Active Directory domains. DPM performs replication, synchronization, and recovery point creation to provide reliable protection and rapid recovery of data both by system administrators and by end-users.
Protection Agent can be installed from System Center Data Protection Manager UI on remote hosts, which are included in Active Directory configuration. It allows to monitor, backup or recover them in a later time. Also these host may store all the data, collected by Data Protection Manager, if their partitions were configured for this option.
