SharePoint Server Agent

The Sharepoint Server agent protects SharePoint databases for disaster recovery.

The Sharepoint Server agent backs up the following components:

  • SharePoint databases
  • Transaction logs

If system failure occurs, such as the breakdown of hardware, software, or operating system, then the SharePoint Server agent can perform a point-in-time recovery of a database. This capability ensures that a database is always ready for use.
