With SharePoint gaining popularity in the last year and the recent release of DPM 2007 which supports the protection of SharePoint this has become a hot topic in the last few months. The protection and recovery of SharePoint data is not small undertaking and there is quite a bit of flexibility with what you can recover. For this reason, let me caution you in that this can be a complex undertaking but once the methods are understood, its benefits far surpass the trouble of the initial learning curve.
So let’s start with the basics of what is required in order to protect SharePoint with DPM and we will expand from there. Over the course of this series, we will cover protection and recovery on several various levels, each of which will have it’s own nuances which dictate this breadth of coverage.
- Protection Requirements
- Recovery of a SharePoint Farm
- Recovery of a SharePoint DB
- Recovery of a SharePoint Object (Site, sub-Site, folder, file, etc.)
