Jersey City, NJ (PRWEB) October 26, 2009
AvePoint, the leading provider of infrastructure management software solutions for Microsoft SharePoint, today announced the beta-release of the DocAve Software Platform v5.3, the industry's most comprehensive software solution for SharePoint backup and recovery, administration, archiving, auditing, replication, reporting, compliance, and migration. This latest release introduces the DocAve Storage Optimization Suite, comprised of an enhanced DocAve Archiver module, and the new DocAve Connector and DocAve Extender modules - each delivering features that enable the efficient management of SharePoint storage. Additionally, DocAve v5.3 expands the functionality of the DocAve Migrator module; now supporting the full-fidelity, hassle-free transfer of Oracle/Stellant and Open Text Vignette content into SharePoint 2007.
"We are very excited to release Docave v5.3, because it introduces some ground-breaking tools that will really empower the SharePoint community to use the platform in new and more expansive ways," said Dr. Tianyi (TJ) Jiang, AvePoint's COO. "A critical and growing concern for organizations running SharePoint has been the efficient utilization of SQL storage, for both performance and financial reasons. DocAve Archiver, which provides a business-rule aware archiving solution for SharePoint, has long been one of our most popular modules. With the introduction of the new Docave Connector and DocAve Extender modules, companies can combine intelligent archiving with both migration-free SharePoint management of file shares, and real-time offloading of BLOB content. These three modules - which together comprise the DocAve Storage Optimization Suite - deliver pioneering features, and are a result of AvePoint's commitment to developing tools the SharePoint community needs to fully leverage the platform for success. On the migration front, DocAve v5.3's support of full-fidelity Oracle and Vignette migration are part of AvePoint's overall strategy to streamline transition to SharePoint."
Pioneering Tools to Optimize SharePoint Storage
The DocAve Storage Optimization Suite is comprised of three, independently deployable modules: DocAve Archiver, DocAve Connector, and Docave Extender. Combined, they deliver the industry's only comprehensive SharePoint SQL storage management toolset.
DocAve Archiver - A popular module within the DocAve lineup for years, Archiver enables intelligent, business-rule aware offloading of SharePoint content from the SQL database. Archived content is automatically transitioned to tiered storage according to fully customizable business rules or via an end-user accessible web part, while end-user access to archived content remains transparent via the SharePoint interface. Fully leveraging Microsoft's EBS-API (External BLOB Storage), Docave Archiver is the industry's most robust and full-featured SharePoint archiving solution.
DocAve Connector - The ideal solution for organizations desiring to keep digital assets on network or cloud file shares, but take advantage of SharePoint's management and collaboration capabilities. With DocAve Connector, all of SharePoint's powerful functionality, including document versioning, alerts, workflows, metadata customization, and permissioning, can be performed on the "attached" content, delivering precisely the same end-user experience as available to content residing directly within SharePoint.
Docave Extender - Allows for the efficient management of all BLOB (Binary Large Object) content. Leveraging Microsoft's EBS-APIs (External BLOB Storage), DocAve Extender instantly routes all BLOB objects to disk-based storage the moment end-users upload it through the SharePoint interface. With fully customizable triggers based upon file-size, administrators have precision control over what BLOB content resides on the SQL database and what is delivered directly to disk-based storage. Though offloaded content never resides within SQL, it is fully accessible and manageable via SharePoint, where end-users can search for, access, and collaborate upon it just as if it was residing within SharePoint's SQL content database.
Comprehensive Migration from Oracle/Stellant and Vignette to SharePoint 2007
DocAve Migrator has long been the industry's most powerful, cost-effective, and easy-to-use migration solution for organizations seeking to transfer legacy content into SharePoint, with support for Lotus Notes, Documentum eRoom, Exchange Public Folders, File Systems, Open Text LiveLink, and previous versions of SharePoint. With the release of v5.3, DocAve Migrator now supports the full fidelity migration of both Oracle/Stellant and Vignette content into SharePoint 2007. DocAve Migrator enables organizations to perform migrations according to their own unique business schedules and needs, with comprehensive mapping tools, optional granular and bulk migration functionality, a customizable migration scheduler, and live, "real-time" migration capabilities. To ensure a complete and successful migration, DocAve's Pre-Migration Scanner analyzes the proposed migration before any transfer is commenced, and delivers detailed reports itemizing what will transfer successfully, what will not, and why.
