Backup is not Backup, Restore is Backup SPSCincy 2012


Published on

It's an easy mistake to make. Because so much planning, preparation, and configuration can go into properly protecting your SharePoint environment from disaster such as a data center outage, server failure, or unintentional deletion, you don't always have a chance to think about how you are going to get those resources back once you've protected them. It comes down to this: all the backups in the world aren't going to do you a bit of good if you don't know how to restore them when you need to. In this presentation, SharePoint expert and author John Ferringer will help you turn the focus away from what you should do before a disaster and start thinking about what you need to do after it. John will cover the characteristics of a successful restore, how to know when you've recovered your backups properly, and what you can do to better position your backups for a successful restore when the chips are down.
