Best Practices for SharePoint Online

To improve the backup and restore performance of SharePoint Online, Commvault has improved index server capabilities for data protection and recovery. The new index server provides distributed indexing and search capabilities making indexing and querying faster. With this improvement, you can configure the SharePoint Online easily by eliminating the need for creation of multiple subclients.


To overcome the effects of throttling and to improve performance during backups for modern authentication, we recommend using multiple Azure apps. For basic authentication, Commvault automatically creates multiple SharePoint service accounts to overcome throttling.
