Sean P. McDonough, recognized expert on SharePoint disaster recovery (DR) and SharePoint performance management, will be a featured speaker at the SharePoint Saturday Michigan hosting the session:

“Selecting and Protecting the Right SharePoint Backup Targets”

SharePoint is a complex platform with many moving parts and dependencies, and most administrators know that they need some form of backup protection to safeguard their environments. When it comes to actually protecting a SharePoint environment, though, what should an administrator focus on? What's important? In this session, McDonough will take a look at SharePoint disaster recovery with an eye towards identifying farm protection targets. He will examine all of the common (and many of the not-so-common) elements that need to be protected, discuss why those elements may or may not be important for any given environment, and talk about tools and technologies that are available for protection. McDonough will also cover some special circumstances and watch-outs that may help or hinder efforts to protect targets that are selected within a farm. By the end of the session, attendees will be able to prioritize backup targets in their SharePoint environments and select appropriate strategies for protection.

As a consultant, McDonough has worked with a number of Fortune 500 companies to architect, implement, troubleshoot, tune, and customize their SharePoint environments. He is an MCPD, an MCTS, and the co-author of both the “SharePoint 2007 Disaster Recovery Guide” and the “SharePoint 2010 Disaster Recovery Guide." McDonough can be reached through his blog ( or Twitter (@spmcdonough). Today Sean exercises his expertise as a Product Manager for SharePoint products at Idera.
