Veeam Software, a provider of backup, replication and virtualization management solutions for VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V, has announced Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SharePoint, a new capability planned to be available in an upcoming free public beta.
Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SharePoint will be included at no additional charge in both the next release of Veeam Backup Free Edition and in Veeam Backup & Replication v7, which will become generally available in the second half of this year.
According to Veeam, Microsoft SharePoint has become ubiquitous throughout business IT, but often, when an employee needs a file that’s been corrupted or deleted, the help desk does not have a quick solution because recovering the file requires restoring the entire SharePoint database.
Supporting e-discovery, Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SharePoint enables users to pinpoint the information required to quickly locate and restore individual SharePoint items. Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SharePoint gives IT an intuitive interface to look inside SharePoint backups without the use of agents. Capabilities include browsing SharePoint databases within compressed, deduplicated image-level backups of SharePoint virtual machines (VMs) without having to restore the entire database; searching for specific SharePoint items; and recovering and exporting items directly to the original SharePoint server, or sending items as email attachments to specific users. The solution provides support for SharePoint running on both Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware vSphere.
Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SharePoint will be available soon in public beta. To register, visit http://go.veeam.com/microsoft-sharepoint-recovery-explorer.html . This capability will be included in the new version of Veeam Backup Free Edition and in Veeam Backup & Replication v7 when they become generally available in the second half of this year.
