Schools which are on Schools Agreements I heard Microsoft DPM 2010 is really cheap. I am looking at this as an alternative to the backup system which we are using which is really difficult to sort and manage but we do have Linux/Apple Servers.
We have 3 VMware ESX Hosts running 11 Windows Server 2003,2008,2008 R2 servers and 2 Ubuntu Servers 8.04.
We have 1 physical DC, 1 Exchange 2007 enterprise VM, 1 SQL Server VM, 2 Windows File Servers (1 2003 and 1 2008R2).
It sounds like DPM will be a bargain! Apparantly its £55 for server license and £5 per client for each server which needs a DPM client.
Surely this can't be right, can someone can confirm that I am not going crazy!!
If DPM 2010 is anything like DPM 2007 I would avoid it like the plague. Caused me more problems that it solved!
With DPM 2010 there is no longer a separate server license, you license by the number of management licenses (per server/client).
