Prevent SharePoint Outages and Downtime
SharePoint has established itself as an enterprise collaboration platform across the globe.
SharePoint content is growing and according to SharePoint admins, CIOs and IT directors
around the world, most organizations have more than one SharePoint farm and SharePoint
content continues to grow. However, few IT departments have a plan in place to ensure its
business-critical applications and content are always available.
Anyone that has ever worked in an IT environment understands that downtime is rarely
expected. It also comes in various forms. Failures of all kinds including power failures,
hardware failures, network failures, software failures, the dreaded “human error”, and other
unknown disasters are lurking out there for SharePoint professionals and can result in downtime.
These kinds of outages and downtime are possible and unfortunately, realistic. Therefore, it is
important to prevent these nightmares from happening in the first place for SharePoint success.
To avoid these issues, it is necessary to systematically ensure that your SharePoint content
(including documents, list items, sites, site collections, libraries, permissions, workflows, and
web parts) is continuously operational and live during any outage by utilizing SharePoint
synchronization or replication software. This software can prevent those potential SharePoint
nightmares that keep you up at night from ever happening again.
Instead of focusing on disaster recovery, focus on preventing the disaster in the first place.
Having content that is highly available is more powerful, preventative and flexible than disaster
