Selecting and Protecting the Right SharePoint Backup Targets  

SharePoint is a complex platform with many moving parts and dependencies, and most administrators know that they need some form of backup protection to safeguard their environments. When it comes to actually protecting a SharePoint environment, though, what should an administrator focus on? What's important?

In this session, we'll take a look at SharePoint disaster recovery with an eye towards identifying on-premises farm protection targets. We'll examine all of the common (and many of the not-so-common) elements that need to be protected, discuss why those elements may or may not be important for any given environment, and talk about tools and technologies that are available for protection.

We'll also cover some special circumstances and watch-outs that may help or hinder efforts to protect targets that are selected within a farm. By the end of the session, you will be able to prioritize backup targets in your SharePoint environment and select appropriate strategies for protection.

 Community Time for Power Users



Starting this month and going forward, there will be a dedicated time for anyone attending the meeting to ask/answer questions related to any SharePoint feature. 


We, at the steering committe feel that there is enough knowledge among all of the attendees that we can help each other by sharing the knowledge.
Our goal is that this time will be use to introduce SharePoint features (tips/tricks), ask questions, answer questions, showcase a technique, etc. by the attendees.


Give us your opinion about this time slot. Or if you would like to be a part of this time, drop us an email at


No vendor topics.





NOTE: Due to the renovations at the Microsoft Office, we are temporarily relocating our meetings to the Cardinal Solutions Office in Downtown. For more information click here
