Groundbreaking new SharePoint backup system from SecurStore

how_it_worksContent management is on the way to being an integral part of business operational infrastructure and is therefore being increasingly developed and distributed by the world’s largest enterprise infrastructure suppliers. These new applications often suffer from backup solutions that are simply not good enough.

An ever increasing number of businesses and organisations are setting up the Microsoft Office SharePoint 2007 integrated suite of server capabilities helping them to improve organisational effectiveness by providing comprehensive content management and enterprise search, accelerating shared business processes and facilitating information-sharing across boundaries for better business insight.

Using time-tested tape based backup solutions; SharePoint is only recoverable in worst case scenarios by restoring the database as a whole, often meaning that critical data can only be recovered outside of the defined Recovery Time Objective (RTO). With the online, automatic SecurStore Backup and Recovery solution, files can be recovered at an item level, allowing companies and enterprises to prioritise what to recover when in case of a disaster. Based on this, IT directors can plan their disaster recovery procedures more easily and make sure that that their systems run with minimum downtime. With Microsoft SharePoint becoming more and more popular, it is becoming something of a backbone to many companies, leaving them vulnerable in case of a disaster.

SecurStore’s Bare Metal Restore tool means that SharePoint can now be recovered without difficulty to a virtual machine in a matter of minutes. This can be done in both VMware and HyperV environments.

“Our clients get the peace of mind and convenience they need by backing up SharePoint at item level, and are allowed to restore their data within their previously defined RTO allowing them also to prioritise the recovery of their data in case of a total disaster,” says Jon Ingi Thordarson the CIO of SecurStore.

SecurStore’s universal virtual environment protection allows customers to backup and restore their entire sharePoint infrastructure onto a VMware or HyperV machine for disaster scenarios or testing.
