In System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2007, you must have one replica volume and one recovery point volume per protected data source. DPM 2010 supports data co-location, which allows you to have multiple data sources mapping on a single replica and recovery point volume. This enables you to store data more efficiently on a DPM server.
DPM supports co-location for the following data sources:
- Hyper-V virtual machines
- SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008
