DocAve Backup and Recovery addresses the need for a fast, flexible, and intelligent backup solution for Microsoft SharePoint. DocAve provides full fidelity backup and recovery, from an individual content item to an entire SharePoint environment and all of its farm-level components, maintaining all metadata, securities, and version histories.
DocAve’s exclusive Business Criticality Matrix automatically classifies SharePoint content according to business importance and usage activity. This allows you to optimize storage and system resources, and execute rule-based backups based on real-time data analyses.
As with all AvePoint software, DocAve Backup and Recovery leverages only fully supported Microsoft methodologies and API’s.
Intelligent, Business-Aware Protection
The ground-breaking Business Criticality Matrix classifies all SharePoint content by both business criticality and usage activity, and automatically associates it to appropriate backup schedules. This fully customizable tool lets administrators maintain backup routines based on real-time data analyses in order to optimize storage and system resources, while robustly protecting all SharePoint content. Learn more about the Business Criticality Matrix.
True Enterprise-level SharePoint Backup
Protect entire SharePoint environments, from individual items and sites to web applications, content databases, index servers and even IIS settings. Full fidelity backup includes all metadata, securities, version histories, and customized layouts. Unique granular backup scheduling (via the business Criticality Matrix or the fully-customizable conventional scheduler) allows you to run your backup processes according to business needs or organizational timetables. It also automatically detects new SharePoint content and performs scheduled or on-demand full, incremental, and differential backups.
Restore With Minimal Business Interruption and Data Loss
Quickly and easily recover all SharePoint components, databases, indexes, and configurations. Granular, item-level restores from DocAve or SQL Server backups via an intuitive timeline-based Restore Controller enables deft recovery of critical documents, sites or subsites, all able to be processed in a live SharePoint environment during normal business hours. Missing or corrupted information can be instantly restored directly to the original media. Accessible controls via a browser-based interface (integrated with Active Directory) allow designated administrators to monitor all SharePoint farms in the company’s environment 24×7.
Satisfy Stringent RTO’s and RPO’s Within Your SLAs
Complex SharePoint farm configurations and additional components reduce the ability to meet high SLA requirements, specifically recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO). Additional potential failure points make management more complicated. DocAve Backup and Recovery minimizes downtime and data loss and satisfies even the most aggressive SLAs. Learn more about how DocAve responds to SLA requirements.
Reduce Human Errors by Simplifying Full System Backup
DocAve Backup and Recovery safeguards all SharePoint components regardless of where they reside and reduces complexity in any disaster recovery scenario. The elegant Web-based interface provides a holistic view of your entire SharePoint environment and offers a simplified point-and-click approach to selecting the components that need to be protected.
Deployment and Management
Administration of all SharePoint backup, recovery, and management jobs (such as scheduling, monitoring, alerts, user account management, and software agent management across multiple SharePoint farms) is centralized in an elegant web-based GUI. Multi-language support enables global deployment of Microsoft SharePoint products and technologies. In most cases, no additional hardware is required to deploy DocAve Backup and Recovery because it can operate on your existing infrastructure. See backup installation components and a sample scenario.
Ensure Compliance with Government Regulations
Full administrative interface, auditing, and granular error and backup process reporting to customizable user groups makes SharePoint operations audit compliant. Backup and data retention functions help organizations comply with regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) or HIPAA. See DocAve Compliance Archiver for additional compliance options.
