Metalogix announced that by integrating Metalogix SharePoint Backup 5.0 and Metalogix StoragePoint 5.0, the company is enabling customers to achieve automated, fast, and secure backups of entire SharePoint farms, reducing backup time from hours to minutes. In addition, the integration of Metalogix SharePoint Backup 5.0 and Metalogix StoragePoint 5.0 helps SharePoint administrators deal with the growing complexity and size of SharePoint environments by providing a way to store and protect important SharePoint content.

“With average farms sizes over 1TB and growing at over 75 percent every year, clients have told us that existing storage and backup infrastructure severely limits their ability to effectively store and protect mission-critical content,” said Steven Murphy, CEO, Metalogix. “Our engineering experts have innovated an approach that gives clients the flexibility to store SharePoint content where they want – on-premises or in the Cloud and achieve fast, more complete backups than a traditional database backup could ever possibly achieve. The combination of SharePoint Backup 5.0 with StoragePoint 5.0 provides organizations an innovative and fast approach to improve storage and backup & recovery of SharePoint content.”

SharePoint Backup 5.0 lets users restore content from multiple file types, such as SQL Server backup (BAK), and data and log files (MDF/LDF). With SharePoint Backup 5.0, administrators can be compliant with backup retention requirements and can use the Metalogix solution with their current enterprise backup solutions.

Metalogix customer Tom Benjamin, SharePoint Systems Officer at Capital Regional District of British Columbia noted, “This release is such a game changer. Fast speed, simplification of granular backup and allowing me to restore content from our VSS snapshots is key. I even discovered a second way to utilize the new functionality; my database administrator has been taking backups of SharePoint databases for years. I can import them and perform restores on demand. The new version puts Metalogix SharePoint Backup at the head of the pack.”

Metalogix is offering a free eBook download to help customers understand how to use the new versions, SharePoint Backup 5.0 and StoragePoint 5.0. Click to download The Top 5 SharePoint Daily Disasters & How to Recover from Them.
