Idera's Pointbackup is a backup and recovery product for Microsoft SharePoint sites and site collections that enables administrators to ensure the safety and integrity of SharePoint content through automation.
Pointbackup automates scheduled backups, monitors backup and recovery operations from a central console and enables users to recover their documents. It also employs compression technology to reduce backup sizes helping Windows shops reduce costs. Furthermore, its "IntelliSearch" engine searches across multiple backups, enabling users to quickly retrieve the objects they require.
Other new features include the following:
- Self-service recovery for SharePoint enables site collection and allows site administrators to recover their own content through a Web part part that enables users to search, browse backups and recover their documents.
- Through backup automation, backup jobs may be scheduled as required.
- Users are able to back up site collections and sites independently and as often as desired.
