SharePoint Backup on Windows Server
Ensure security, integrity, and availability of your entire SharePoint database using NAKIVO Backup & Replication’s Windows Server Backup.
SharePoint is a web-based platform, which can be used to securely share data, streamline business workflows, and improve workplace collaboration. However, ineffective data protection management can make SharePoint databases an easy target for outside attackers and cause new data protection challenges. Failure to build a secure and welcoming production environment can result in loss of critical data, employee productivity, and customer trust.
You can effectively protect the entire SharePoint database as well as ensure data consistency by running NAKIVO Backup & Replication’s Windows Server Backup.
SharePoint Backup in NAKIVO Backup & Replication
To save backup time and storage space, NAKIVO Backup & Replication can run incremental SharePoint backups. Using the proprietary change tracking method, the product identifies only new changed data blocks and copies them to the backup repository.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication relies on Microsoft's Volume Shadow Copy Service to perform application-aware backups. Once a shadow copy is created, you can back up the SharePoint database in a transactionally consistent state and be sure of its integrity.
SharePoint is used to actively share files and information across a single organization, which can expose the database to various risks and threats. However, NAKIVO Backup & Replication can encrypt database backups both in flight and at rest, making data unintelligible to unauthorized users.
NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to set up how many recovery points you need to be created per backup job and how long they should be retained in the backup repository. Using the GFS rotation scheme, you can maintain multiple recovery points at the same time and ensure their long-term retention.
Recover SharePoint Files on Demand
Trying to recover large amounts of data can be a challenging and time-consuming process. With the Universal Object Recovery feature, you get the opportunity to save time and resources as well as achieve tighter RTOs. NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to recover individual files directly from existing SharePoint backups and avoid unwanted overhead.

Minimize Storage Space Consumption
Using specific data reduction techniques, NAKIVO Backup & Replication can significantly reduce storage space requirements in addition to improving overall backup performance. Backed-up data is then deduplicated, thus ensuring that only unique data blocks are saved to the backup repository. After deduplication, data is compressed to free up even more storage space and save available resources.
Set Effective Bandwidth Limits
NAKIVO Backup & Replication is a fast-acting data protection solution which can perform database backups at a high speed. However, when you attempt to perform backup jobs during business hours, LAN and WAN networks often become overloaded, which can negatively affect your backup performance. With the Advanced Bandwidth Throttling feature, you can set up bandwidth rules and control how much network bandwidth is allocated for specific data protection tasks or during specific periods of time.
Store Backup Copies Offsite or in the Cloud
Preparation is the best protection, and having multiple copies of SharePoint backups can go a long way in safeguarding your critical data. NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows you to create and maintain copies of database backups and store them offsite or in the Cloud (Amazon or Azure). If disaster renders your production center unavailable, including the SharePoint backups it has stored, you can rely on previously created backup copies to restore lost data.
Schedule SharePoint Backups in a Few Clicks
With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, SharePoint backup jobs can be performed either on demand or on a schedule. Depending on your business needs, SharePoint backup jobs can be scheduled to run daily, weekly, monthly or yearly, or according to your custom periodic schedule. The Calendar Dashboard feature demonstrates existing backup jobs and their expected duration. Based on this information, you can effectively structure data protection tasks and prevent any schedule overlaps.
