MetaVis Technologies has launched MetaVis SavePoint, an agentless SharePoint backup and archiving tool for Office 365 SharePoint. MetaVis describes SavePoint as a fast, secure and flexible way to keep a local backup of a cloud-based SharePoint implementation. SavePoint also allows customers to restore SharePoint items, documents, lists, libraries and sites, including valuable metadata from a local drive. MetaVis explains SavePoint is well suited to back up SharePoint content stored in the cloud. SavePoint allows users to:
Backup and restore SharePoint content. Customers can create “SavePoints” of SharePoint content to local and cloud-based storage. This ensures that a company can quickly access content if there are hosted service interruptions and restore individual documents without needing to restore the whole environment and back up content for long periods of time.
Archive SharePoint Sites. Users can archive and copy SharePoint content to a file system based on specific search criteria including metadata, version author or retention information. The archived content can then be deleted from SharePoint, freeing up space, enhancing system performance and improving search results.
Restore archived or backed-up content. SavePoint permits performing item-level restore for deleted or long lost content without rolling back the whole SharePoint site, making it attractive for individual departments or sites, claims MetaVis.
Pricing for SavePoint starts at $495 per year. A free trial can be downloaded at the MetaVis site.
