Organizations need to plan now and consider all of the SharePoint backup options that exist to minimize data loss and shorten backup time so that it doesn’t take at least a full night to complete an entire backup of SQL server-based Content Databases in SharePoint.
Continually Back Up SharePoint Content with StoragePoint SharePoint backup is necessary, however it can be a lengthy process. Standard, traditional SharePoint backup methods can take up to 8 hours to back up just 1 terabyte of content. The average SharePoint farm now exceeds 1 TB and the content is growing by the day. According to IDC, the total amount of SharePoint content by 2020 will reach 40 Zettabytes. This means that backing up SharePoint content using traditional methods could take a week or more if your content is in multiple TBs or more. Organizations today have critical recovery objectives that they need to meet and the 8 hour timeframe per 1 TB is unacceptable. SharePoint backup has become a drain on IT time and staff. As content grows this issue is only going to intensify. However, it doesn’t need to be that way.
