Introducing DocAve 6 Service Pack 3

​We’re very excited to announce that the next generation of AvePoint’s enterprise-class management platform for Microsoft SharePoint governance – DocAve 6 Service Pack 3 – is available today! Built upon our experience helping more than 10,000 customers worldwide collaborate with confidence since 2001, DocAve 6 enables organizations to increase business productivity, reduce total cost of ownership, provide IT assurance, and enable security and compliance for business content. This latest version of the award-winning DocAve Software Platform provides enhanced features for SharePoint governance and compliance as well as new capabilities for migration and disaster recovery, offering a complete data management solution.

New and enhanced features within DocAve 6 SP 3 include:

Compliance & Storage Management

DocAve Archiver’s enhanced capabilities not only provide flexible archiving of SharePoint content for true enterprise content lifecycle management, but also strengthen records management initiatives, improve compliance, and reduce your total cost of ownership. DocAve Archiver offloads fixed, end-of-life content from SharePoint’s SQL Server content databases to hierarchical storage media based on fully customizable business rules. By maintaining immutable, read-only copies of archived content, DocAve Archiver enables consistent, automatic disposition of SharePoint records according to established policies.

Disaster Recovery

To complement Backup and Restore, AvePoint now offers SQL Server Data Manager, a free tool to deliver full fidelity, item-level restore capabilities directly from Microsoft SQL Server backups for fast SharePoint content recovery. Paired with DocAve Backup and Restore, organizations have a complete data protection solution with full-fidelity backup and recovery, from individual content items to entire SharePoint environments and all of their farm-level components, maintaining all metadata, security settings, and version histories. DocAve High Availability is a 24/7 fault tolerance solution for SharePoint that enables centralized control of all SharePoint environments from a single interface, offering a one-switch disaster recovery for SharePoint.


Policy Enforcer, currently part of DocAve Administrator, enables complete control over SharePoint governance. Rapidly respond to unauthorized modifications in features, permissions, and settings, ensuring that all actions and changes to SharePoint environments fall within organization-specific governance policies. Policy Enforcer offers 20 out-of-the-box rules to continuously monitor sites as well as the ability to build additional rules with Policy Enforcer’s Software Development Kit (SDK).


DocAve 6 SP 3 now provides support for direct migration to SharePoint Online from file shares, SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2007, in addition to supporting migration to SharePoint Online via a staged approach from all supported legacy systems. DocAve 6 SP 3 also supports SharePoint migration from EMC Documentum and Lotus Quickr, and features including an improved pre-scan tool with consolidated reports and suggested resolutions for potential issues during migration.
