3rd Party Backup/Restore options

  Asked By: Damaris    Date: Jul 30    Category: MOSS    Views: 7132

Now that we're on the topic of backup and restore, which of the 3rd party
products out there are the best? I'm hearing a lot about AvePoint and CommVault
and I'd like to hear about your experiences so I can analyze for our needs. Up
until hearing all the chatter about these 3rd party products, my plan was to go
with the OOTB solution in MOSS but perhaps there are some great benefits to
these other products.

Are these others that haven't been mentioned? Which are the most cost
effective, easy administration, etc.?

I have used AvePoint in the previous version and have now
been playing with it for this version of SharePoint. I have to say I was not
a fan of the older versions as the UI was not the best and was sometimes
really slow to use. The new version is great  and has some really good
features. I am still a great advocate of the OOTB features as I think that
this really does all that you need. With the recycle bin and backed process
it is most definitely the cheapest option. However it is nice to have
something like AvePoint as the DR and fail safe backup  system. Thumbs up for
AvePoint from me.

The new product can also be used to move content from SPS03 to MOSS07.
