Data protection involves mechanisms and strategies that enable you to recover your data in case of any data loss scenario. Timely backups can help you successfully tackle both data protection and availability. Microsoft relies on System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) to backup your data without implementation of third-party software. DPM is a powerful backup and recovery system that allows you to back up your data at the guest or host level. Host-level backups occur at the hypervisor level. Saved State and Child VM Snapshot are the two methods for performing host level backups.
