Microsoft SharePoint Server Agent
The SharePoint Server Agent provides complete protection of on-premises SharePoint farm and documents in your enterprise, and SharePoint online in Office 365. You can use the agent to perform full, differential, incremental, or synthetic full backups depending on the backup set that you want to protect.
In case of a system failure, such as the breakdown of hardware, software, or operating system, the SharePoint Server Agent provides point-in-time recovery of the farm or document with all metadata intact. This type of recovery ensures that the state of the SharePoint farm or document is as it existed at the time of backup, and it is ready for use whenever necessary.
Protect All SharePoint Components
All SharePoint entities that exist on the Windows File System and IIS components related to SharePoint are protected.
Fast Backup and Recovery for Content Database
Leveraging IntelliSnap, hardware array based snapshots can be taken of content databases allowing for the creation of nearly instantaneous recovery points. Snapshots can be used to perform volume revert, where supported, for nearly instantaneous recovery as well. Streaming based recovery is also available as is the ability to mount snap shots on demand for native copy access to content databases. The SharePoint Agent’s Offline Browse feature allows granular recovery of documents, lists, and sites, directly from the snapshot.
For more information, see SharePoint Storage Manager.
RBS-Aware Backup for Content Database
Content database backups are fully RBS aware* and protect RBS blobs along with their corresponding content databases.
*Support only Microsoft provided File Stream RBS provider.
Application-Aware Backups for Microsoft SharePoint Server Agent
For SharePoint agent, you can perform application-aware backups from a VSA subclient, then recover granular data by performing mining from a SQL Server database client that is associated with the SharePoint application.
For more information, see Application-Aware Backups for Microsoft SharePoint.
Infinishare for SharePoint
Infinishare can access network file shares through a SharePoint site. You will view the files as a regular SharePoint content, even though the files reside on the network file share.
For more information, see Infinishare for SharePoint.
Always On Availability Groups
Content database backups are Always On Availability aware. Create an Always On Availability Group (AG) client and add Availability Group databases to the AG client to protect databases on SQL Server 2012 and later in the event of a database failure. The AG client protects a set of user databases (also known as availability databases) that fail over together, and provides a single entry point to perform backups and restores.
For more information, see Always On MSSQL Availability Groups Support for SharePoint Agent.
Web Console and End User Interface
End users can access and manage their documents or files from any remote computer that runs a Java-enabled web browser by using a web-based application called the Web Console. The console is a self-service application that enables end users to perform browse, restore, and download operations.
For more information, see Web Console for End-User Recovery.
