Whilst the beta for System Center is just around the corner, you can have a look at Data Protection manager and how you can optimise and centralise your backup and recovery. Click here to download the DPM beta software from the DPM site
There was a webcast last week that gives an overview about DPM which you can view at your leisure too…
There’s a nice little flash based demo on the web about DSI (you’ve got to press the ctrl key when you download it, as it runs in a pop up window). It’s very animated :-).
I present this session quite often, and this demo covers all of the fundamental concepts you need to know – especially if you’re not too familiar with Visual Studio 2005 Team System. Christian points to some useful links about the SDM and VSTS to get you up to speed
You can also find other links from the DSI home page.
