SharePoint 2007's unexpected popularity has forced enterprises to reconsider current backup and recovery strategies and objectives. Currently, users have three options to address their concerns:
- Built-in SharePoint backup and recovery tools.
- Traditional backup and recovery software.
- Next generation backup and recovery software.
Each of these solutions has its own challenges, but vendors are attempting to address the gaps with software specifically designed for the renewed concerns posed by SharePoint. Enterprises should examine their backup and recovery requirements to decide which solution or combination of solutions suit business needs.
