SharePoint Server 2010 introduces some new content recovery options that provide the SharePoint administrators more granular content recovery options. Using Central Administration you can now export site collections, site, libraries, and list making it easier for us to backup, migrate, or archive content stored in SharePoint. SharePoint 2010 also provides the option of recovering site collections, sites, list and libraries from content databases that are no longer part of the SharePoint farm. Furthermore, you can now configure your content databases to take advantage of SQL Server mirroring providing a quick recovery of a database that has crashed. With more than 90% of the content accessed via SharePoint being stored in SQL Server it is imperative that you have an easy and efficient way to recover items or entire databases as quickly as possible. This discussion will introduce the Best Practices framework that will allow your SharePoint administrator to configure and utilize SharePoint for quick content recovery which minimizes the downtime and provides shorter yet achievable Service Level Agreements (SLAs).

  • How to configure and utilize SharePoint for quick content recovery
