Metalogix Develops Standard-Setting Product That Optimizes Content Storage, Speeds Backup and Granularly Restores Content for Any SharePoint Version, Including SharePoint 2013

WASHINGTON, DC – July 30, 2013 — / — Metalogix, the leading provider of content infrastructure software to improve the use and performance of enterprise content on Microsoft SharePoint, Exchange and Cloud platforms, today announced the breakthrough release of Metalogix StoragePoint 4.2, which is now the industry’s first and only fully integrated SharePoint storage, backup and recovery solution. Established as SharePoint’s top-selling storage optimization product, the new release expands StoragePoint’s range of capabilities to include automated backup, either on-premises or in the cloud, and the ability to granularly restore lost content all the way down to the document level.

Organizations must now manage an average of 1 terabyte (TB) of content within SharePoint environments and that content is nearly doubling every year. Due to this dramatic growth and SharePoint’s ascension as a mission-critical content management and collaboration platform, there is increasing pressure on organizations to develop a cohesive strategy for storing terabytes of content and achieving fast backup and recovery. Organizations have realized that existing storage and backup methods can no longer meet the stricter Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) requirements for data loss and recovery. For example, without StoragePoint, it can take up to 8 hours to backup 1 TB of content. With StoragePoint, it can be accomplished in minutes.

StoragePoint 4.2 provides a new, comprehensive approach for BLOB storage, SharePoint backup and recovery, all of which can be accessed directly within a single user interface in the SharePoint central administration. StoragePoint uses Remote BLOB Storage (RBS) technology to offload the unstructured content such as Office documents and rich media files known as Binary Large Objects (BLOBs) from SQL Server to more appropriate and cheaper storage tiers. Externalizing BLOBs shrinks content databases by up to 95% and allows databases to be automatically and continuously backed up in mere minutes. The product also provides granular, item-level restore capabilities for lost, deleted or corrupted content. StoragePoint enables these breakthrough capabilities for any version of SharePoint and is the first to do so for SharePoint 2013.

“Our customers have routinely inquired about improving their lengthy backup times and reducing the time it takes to respond to a user losing a document or folder,” said Steven Murphy, CEO, Metalogix. “We developed StoragePoint 4.2 to provide customers a simple way to address their SharePoint storage, backup and recovery needs. Within one familiar user interface, SharePoint administrators and IT professionals can quickly and easily backup and restore content in a matter of minutes as opposed to hours or days. StoragePoint 4.2 is a game-changer for SharePoint backup and recovery that will streamline these processes and improve productivity throughout an organization.”

By using StoragePoint 4.2, organizations will no longer have to rely on time-consuming backup processes with SQL Backup or a central backup and recovery team to handle lost item requests. Additionally, the product introduces support for backup to the cloud, which will help further drive down storage costs. There are also new features that address event-based retention support for EMC Centera and synchronization between SharePoint information management and external storage retention policies.

As part of the product release, Metalogix has introduced StoragePoint Express, which gives organizations the chance to use the product at no cost for up to 200 GBs of content. StoragePoint Express features the RBS capabilities that have established StoragePoint as the market-leader for SharePoint storage optimization and the new automated backup features.
