Restore SharePoint Content in Less Time, for Less Cost

Ontrack PowerControls for Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Server saves you significant time and eliminates the need for a recovery server by reading your existing content database backups, and allowing you to find and restore only the items or sites you need. With Ontrack PowerControls, IT administrators are able to quickly locate the SharePoint items they need, copy and export those items back into the production environment or to an alternate location.


Spend Less Time Searching

The Ontrack PowerControls Advanced Search Agent for SharePoint allows administrators to search across multiple content databases, to locate and restore documents that meet certain criteria in an archived file rather than fully restoring each backup or snapshot for analysis. Search by numerous criteria, including item type, keywords, subject, dates, specified users and file/attachment data.

Maintain Data Integrity During a SharePoint Recovery

Ontrack PowerControls does not change the metadata of the SharePoint source or target and maintains data integrity by performing read-only operations on the source files throughout the restoration process. When requests for a SharePoint data restoration arise, it can be critical for litigation, compliance or ediscovery to keep the metadata (original author, time/date created, time/date last modified, etc.), of restored items intact.


Access, Search, and Restore Data from RBS

Most data managed in SharePoint consists of Binary Large Objects, or BLOBs, which are unstructured content that consumes 80-95 percent of SharePoint storage space.

Organizations leverage RBS (Remote BLOB Store) solutions to externalize BLOB data to cheaper storage, reducing storage costs and increasing performance in SharePoint.

Ontrack PowerControls RBS Agent for SharePoint Agent add-on extends the granular search and restore functionality to externalized SharePoint content from Metalogix StoragePoint, StorSimple, and FILESTREAM. This allows IT administrators to locate and granularly restore externalized SharePoint content to the live SharePoint server or another file system.

Supports SharePoint 2013 Shredded Storage Restoration

Shredded Storage refers to the data platform improvement in SharePoint 2013 that focuses on the management of documents.

Ontrack PowerControls is one of the only tools on the market that can search, reassemble, and restore SharePoint 2013 Shredded Storage.

Shredding reduces the amount of data passed across a network and improves performance. By storing the incremental changes made to a document, rather than saving an entire copy of the document each time it is edited and saved, shredding can also reduce storage on the SQL Server side.
