SharePoint Backup

Enterprise backup and restore for SharePoint can be cumbersome operations for administrators. SharePoint stores all its content and most of its configuration settings in SQL Server databases, but no native tool provides both granular SharePoint content recovery and SQL server and database restoration. Instead, administrators must use multiple backup techniques that require large amounts of storage space, and they lack options for recovering data across large, distributed environments.

Reduce Storage Costs, Improve Productivity and Perform Granular and Farm Level Restores

Quest offers a pair of solutions that solve these SharePoint backup and recovery challenges while reducing costs and improving administrator productivity:

  • LiteSpeed for SQL Server: LiteSpeed’s low-impact, high-performance compression technology allows you to reduce storage costs and backup times, while maintaining complete control over the backup process. Because SharePoint’s back end is SQL Server, LiteSpeed provides critical technology to streamline, compress and secure SharePoint content backups.
  • Recovery Manager for SharePoint: Recovery Manager performs backups of SharePoint content and configuration databases using native SQL and SharePoint backups as well as the speed and efficiency of LiteSpeed Engine for SQL.  Furthermore, Recovery Manager provides granular and disaster level recovery of data for SharePoint 2003, 2007 and 2010. It also restores items from full database backups created by Quest LiteSpeed for SQL Server or other third party tools.

Combining these two innovative tools provides a complete backup and recovery solution for SharePoint environments.
