Is protecting your SharePoint Portal documents keeping you up at night?
SharePoint is a robust document-management product but data protection
options are confusing and difficult to use. This can result in
unprotected data and huge monetary loss. CommVault Galaxy includes
doc-level, incremental, differential and multi-stream backups. Galaxy
offers simple browse/find functions. And its online and "on-the-fly"
restores keep individual documents available when and where you need
them.
