AlwaysOn Protection With System Center Data Protection Manager 2012 R2

Sunday, April 27th, 2014

 

I have been waiting for months to write this blog about how to protect AlwaysOn with DPM , the reason for the delay that DPM 2012 R2 before RU2 wasn’t supporting AlwaysOn  with Cluster. 

for Enterprises looking for true disaster Recovery and avoid single point of failure,  AlwaysOn can be setup using SQL Cluster Instance with a stand alone SQL server Instance.meaning the primary replica is hosted on a SQL Cluster instance and Secondary replica is hosted on SQL Instance Standalone. the reason for that is to avoid the single point of failure such as the SAN

As I mentioned earlier , before DPM rollup Update 2 for System center , DPM didn’t support Protecting AlwaysOn with Cluster Setup.

First step:  Install DPM Client to your WFC nodes , make sure to patch your DPM server with the latest RU2
