Store your SharePoint Data to Cloud Files

Filed in by Angela Bartels | October 22, 2009 10:26 am

Rackspace partner, AvePoint[1], announced that its DocAve[2] software platform will fully support the delivery of its SharePoint backup and archiving files directly to our Cloud Files[3] platform.

Once you download their software and setup a Cloud Files account – all you have to do is configure Cloud Files as a data repository in the DocAve Manager.  After that, data is seamlessly transferred to the Rackspace Cloud but still managed and accessed from SharePoint.

Below are two videos. One that shows a farm being restored from the Rackspace Cloud and the other, files being stored in the Rackspace Cloud but being accessed from within SharePoint.
