Access, search and restore data from RBS

Most data managed in SharePoint is unstructured content such as Binary Large Objects (BLOB), which can consume up to 95% of storage space.

As native SharePoint storage is very expensive and large database volumes reduce performance, organisations are turning to Remote BLOB Store (RBS) solutions to outsource BLOB storage, thereby reducing storage costs and improving performance.

Users can extend search and restore functionality to Metalogix StoragePoint, StorSimple SharePoint Database Optimizer and FILESTREAM by using the optional Ontrack PowerControls RBS component for SharePoint. It allows administrators to search and granularly restore SharePoint content outsourced to the production SharePoint server or any other file system.

Restore SharePoint items

Restoring a SharePoint site with traditional methods from a previous backup or snapshot takes time and costs money.

Ontrack PowerControls offers you a much better option: directly read the existing content of your databases from their backups, and search and restore only the elements or sites you need. Ontrack PowerControls saves you a significant amount of time and eliminates the need for a dedicated recovery server.
