SharePoint Server includes several content recovery options for SharePoint administrators, site collection administrators, and end users. Using Central Administration or PowerShell, you can backup and restore your entire farm or components of your farm. You can also perform more granular content backups by exporting site collections, site, libraries, and list. SharePoint also provides the option of recovering site collections, sites, list and libraries from content databases that are no longer part of the SharePoint farm. With a vast majority of your SharePoint content stored in SQL Server, it's imperative you have an efficient way to recover items or entire databases as quickly as possible. This session will introduce the Best Practices framework that will help you configure SharePoint and SQL Server for quick content recovery minimizing the downtime and providing shorter yet achievable Service Level Agreements (SLA's).

You will learn:

  • What your users need to know about data recovery
  • About different SharePoint and third party data recovery options
  • Ways to ensure high availability of SharePoint
