Quick and easy granular recovery for SharePoint

Microsoft SharePoint has traditionally been one of the most difficult applications for performing granular recovery and eDiscovery. Veeam® turns this around with Veeam Explorer™ for Microsoft SharePoint, which is a free tool that enables fast, easy restores of SharePoint sites, documents, libraries and lists — all with no agents to manage and no additional licenses to buy.

By downloading NEW Veeam Backup & Replication™ Community Edition, you can browse SharePoint backups and databases with ease, search for specific files and restore them via save, send and export.

Restore anything in minutes!

Providing Availability and support for Microsoft SharePoint services can be a challenge for general IT professionals. With growing volumes of data, complex structure and importance to the business, more effort is required to deliver low recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery point objectives (RPOs). This makes any eDiscovery or granular recovery tasks frustrating and time-consuming at best.

Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SharePoint gives you instant visibility into SharePoint databases and backups to recover anything you need in minutes, with just a few clicks!

  • Browse your SharePoint database: Open SharePoint from a backup without extracting it or open it from a local folder.
  • Leverage full-text search: Find any content, documents, lists or other items you need to restore within the SharePoint backup file without recovering SharePoint itself.
  • Restore individual SharePoint items and permissions: Remote BLOB Storage (RBS) is supported.
  • Export recovered items: Restore items directly to the original SharePoint server1, send items as email attachments to specific users, or simply save them to another location.
  • Restore SharePoint sites1: Minimize downtime and restore deleted or broken sites in minutes, and immediately get a detailed report on the restore session results directly in the Veeam Explorer console.

Agentless SharePoint backup and replication

Veeam Backup & Replication™ provides image-based backup and replication for Microsoft SharePoint running virtual machines (VMs) on VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V. By utilizing agentless technology, Veeam follows best practices and leverages Microsoft VSS to make sure there are no unfinished transactions or incomplete application files during a backup job. That way your SharePoint backups are application-consistent and ready to be recovered when needed.
