Plugging holes in your SharePoint 2010 disaster recovery strategy

2,132

Published on

(Delivered at Best Practices Conference - March 2011).

SharePoint 2010 has some great features for backup and restore, but will out-of-the-box recovery provide the level of protection you need? This session is structured around four different recovery scenarios from item to farm-level. We'll demonstrate and discuss the specific recovery steps and see if any holes exist. Recommendations are then provided to ensure your strategy will hold when you need it most.
