Companies of all sizes and stripes are taking advantage of cloud-based resources because of the efficiencies they can deliver
Jersey City, NJ (PRWEB) October 26, 2009
AvePoint, the leading provider of infrastructure management software solutions for Microsoft SharePoint, today announced that the latest release of its flagship product - the DocAve Software Platform v5.3 - now supports both the full-featured management of cloud-based file shares via SharePoint, and the seamless delivery/recovery of SharePoint backup and archive data to cloud-based storage repositories. This announcement comes as an increasing number of organizations are leveraging cloud-based storage resources, and serves as a testament to AvePoint's ongoing commitment to provide the inustry's most robust and flexible infrastructure management solutions for Microsoft SharePoint.
"Companies of all sizes and stripes are taking advantage of cloud-based resources because of the efficiencies they can deliver", commented Dr. Tianyi (TJ) Jiang, AvePoint's COO. "For organizations that use SharePoint, it is critical that they can fully integrate these cloud-based resources into their use of the platform, so an important goal for AvePoint has been to ensure that our products fully support cloud-integration. With the latest release of DocAve, companies can not only backup and archive directly to the cloud, they can also 'attach' their cloud-based file shares to their SharePoint environment, and leverage all of SharePoint's powerful presentation, management, and collaboration functionality. It's a capability the SharePoint community has never had before, and we believe it will really empower organizations to more fully utilize the platform for success."
DocAve v5.3 introduces several new and newly enhanced modules that will help organizations take full advantage of their cloud-based storage resources.
Migration-Free SharePoint Presentation and Management of Cloud File Shares
DocAve Connector - For organizations desiring to keep their legacy digital assets on network or cloud file shares, but take advantage of SharePoint's singular management and collaboration capabilities (including document versioning, alerts, workflows, metadata customization, and permissioning). With DocAve Connector, end-users can interact with and collaborate upon cloud-based file share content in exactly the same manner they would with content residing in SharePoint Content Databases.
Seamless Backup and Recovery from Cloud Storage
DocAve Backup and Recovery - The industry's most robust, item-through-platform level backup and restore solution for SharePoint, now allows administrators to deliver backups directly to, and restore granularly from, their cloud-based storage resources. All of the DocAve Backup and Recovery module's rich functionality, including total metadata preservation, multi-plan backup scheduling/execution, and out-of-place restore capability, now fully support the cloud-storage delivery and restoration model.
Streamlined Delivery of Archive and BLOB Content to Cloud Storage
DocAve Archiver - The industry's most powerful archiving solution for SharePoint, allows for the intelligent, business-rule aware offloading of SharePoint content from the SQL database. With the release of DocAve v5.3, DocAve Archiver now enables organizations to deliver archived content directly to cloud storage, and granularly restore content from cloud storage back into SharePoint's SQL database. Whether archived content is stored on network or cloud storage, end-users have unfettered access to archived content via the SharePoint interface, and fully-customizable rules empower the administrator to determine exactly how and when archived content can be restored to SharePoint's SQL database.
Docave Extender - Allows organizations to instantly offload BLOB (Binary Large Object) content to any file-based storage device, including cloud-based resources. DocAve Extender helps organizations optimize SQL database resources and limit SQL licensing costs by instantly routing all content exceeding a customizable-size to network or cloud storage, at the moment it is uploaded via the SharePoint interface. Though it never resides within SQL, this content is fully accessible and manageable via SharePoint, where end-users can search for, access, and collaborate upon it just as if it was residing in SharePoint's SQL Content Database.
