Organizations that are using Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 need to have robust backup, administration, archiving, and deployment management strategies in place in order to scale out their environments with confidence.

Jersey City, N.J. (PRWEB) October 14, 2009
AvePoint, the leading provider of infrastructure management software solutions for Microsoft SharePoint, today announced the release of new suite pricing for its DocAve Software Platform available to organizations running Windows SharePoint Services v3 (WSSv3). This new pricing - available until December 31, 2009 - provides WSSv3 customers with all of the award-winning DocAve modules for one low, per server price. This offer has been made available by AvePoint to organizations running WSSv3 with three (3) servers or less, and allows these organizations to take full advantage of DocAve's powerful tools for SharePoint item-through-platform level backup and recovery, administration, auditing, deployment management, compliance, archiving, and reporting.
"We are very proud to offer DocAve to WSSv3 users at this new, bundled price point", said Dr. Tianyi (TJ) Jiang, AvePoint COO. "Organizations with smaller SharePoint deployments still need to efficiently manage, protect, and optimize their environments, and this new offering provides a cost-effective way for them to utilize the most powerful SharePoint infrastructure management tools on the market."
The new DocAve Suite for WSSv3 is priced at USD 995/server. The DocAve Suite for WSSv3 ships with the full array of SharePoint management, protection, and reporting modules available in the standard DocAve Software Platform v5.2.2. DocAve Migrator - which delivers full fidelity migration to SharePoint from a wide variety of legacy sources - is not included in the basic suite pricing, but is available for additional purchase for those requiring this powerful tool. The DocAve Suite for WSSv3 includes the following DocAve modules:
- DocAve Backup and Recovery
- DocAve High Availability
- DocAve SiteBin
- DocAve SharePoint Administrator
- DocAve Archiver
- DocAve Compliance Vault
- DocAve eDiscovery
- DocAve Auditor

"AvePoint's new bundle pricing for WSSv3 deployments is great news for the SharePoint community", commented Bob Fox, Microsoft SharePoint MVP and co-founder of the International SharePoint Professionals Association. "Organizations that are using Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 need to have robust backup, administration, archiving, and deployment management strategies in place in order to scale out their environments with confidence. AvePoint's new DocAve for WSSv3 Suite does just that, by delivering a comprehensive SharePoint infrastructure management solution at a great price point."
