DocAve Archiver for SharePoint enables business-rule aware archiving of SharePoint 2010 content for intelligent lifecycle management

AvePoint, the leading provider of infrastructure management software solutions for Microsoft SharePoint, today announced that DocAve Archiver for SharePoint, the company's tool for intelligent, business-rule aware archiving of SharePoint content, now provides beta support for SharePoint 2010. DocAve Archiver is one of 24 tools available within the recently released DocAve Software Platform v5.4, and enables the archiving of dormant SharePoint content to tiered storage as part of a comprehensive content lifecycle management and storage resource management strategy.

"The efficient management and retention of enterprise content is critical in today's business and regulatory landscape", said Dr. Tianyi (TJ) Jiang, AvePoint's Chief Operating Officer. "As organizations start using SharePoint 2010 as their primary information management platform, one of their key objectives will be to establish an intelligent system by which SharePoint content is efficiently offloaded to tiered storage for archiving purposes. Our goal was to make sure DocAve Archiver supported SharePoint 2010 right out of the gate, so administrators have the tools they need to get the job done."

As SharePoint adoption has accelerated, organizations have developed more formal strategies for managing the increasing amounts of content being uploaded to their SharePoint environments. As SharePoint usage grows, the amount of dormant content - documents, sites, and other SharePoint elements no longer readily accessed by end-users - grows exponentially relative to active content. Left unchecked, this dormant content consumes valuable space on SharePoint's SQL database. DocAve Archiver empowers administrators to automate the process of offloading this dormant content to tiered storage, and apply granular retention periods that are aligned with business or compliance requirements. Though offloaded content no longer resides on the SQL database, it remains fully transparent to the end-users, is subject to SharePoint search, and can be reconstituted to SQL by either the administrator or content owner, on demand. DocAve Archiver is the industry's only complete SharePoint archiving solution, providing the following features:

  • Flexible archiving rule builder to automate the offloading of SharePoint content from the SQL database based upon any metadata criteria;
  • Full end-user access to archived content via SharePoint, and fully customizable un-archiving/rehydration delegation rules;
  • Archived content remains fully indexed and integrated with native SharePoint search - including FAST, and subject to SharePoint workflows, alerts, and Microsoft Office client application integration.

Part of a Comprehensive SharePoint Storage Optimization Strategy

DocAve Archiver is one of three tools within the DocAve Storage Optimization Suite for SharePoint, which also includes DocAve Extender for SharePoint, a free tool for the instant offloading of BLOB content to disk-based storage, and DocAve Connector for SharePoint, which enables the migration-free presentation and management of network and cloud-based file share via SharePoint. Together, these tools provide a complete and cost-effective solution for the management of retention policies and storage resources.
