You can use DPM to protect the following types of application data:

In addition, DPM can protect the data of applications running in the guest. However, data for applications running on virtual machines must be protected and recovered as an application data source, not as a component of a protected virtual machine. For example, to protect and recover data for an instance of SQL Server running on a virtual machine, you select the data source as a SQL Server database. When you protect a virtual machine, application data is also protected, but it can be recovered only by recovering the virtual machine itself.
