SharePoint 2010 Disaster Recovery Guide

September 30, 2010

Two things happened almost simultaneously this morning: I got an email from someone asking what is the “good practice for backup and recovery with SharePoint 2010”, and I saw the news on release of SharePoint 2010 Disaster Recovery Guide by John Ferringer and Sean McDonough.

You can guess what was my response to that question. There is no one-size-fits-all backup and recovery strategy. There are different techniques and tools available, and the choice always depends on the Restore Time and Restore Point Objectives requested by the business and the costs of implementation. And I also sent the link to the book.

I think the new SharePoint 2010 Disaster Recovery Guide is a great read for SharePoint admins who need guidance on where to start with backup and recovery planning. Judging by the table of contents published by Sean I think the book keeps and highlights all the great insights you could find in the SharePoint 2007 version of this book I read and reviewed last year, and puts the material in the logical order to make it easier to read and understand. Congrats to John and Sean and the book release!

    Thank you, Ilia! John and I really appreciate you sharing the book and your thoughts. We get many of the same questions that I’m sure you get, and being able to point people to a resource can make a difference. Naturally, we tried to write a book that could be such a resource.

    As you get into it and form some opinions, we’d love to hear them. I think you had some great insights on the first book, and we’d love to get that kind of feedback again.

    Hello Ilia,

    Stellar Information Systems Ltd, leaders in data recovery software, Gurgaon, india launched Stellar Phoenix SharePoint Server Recovery v1.0, a versatile application for recovering corrupt or damaged SharePoint databases. You can also recommend this software who have corrupted sharepoint database.

    • David, thanks for the note. The software you mention seems to help in the database corruption scenarios. Disaster recovery plan should definitely cover this scenario among many others.
