AvePoint Revolutionizes SharePoint Storage Optimization

DocAve suite of storage optimization modules lets organizations unleash Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 and Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 performance potential though efficient storage management, intelligent archiving, and migration-free attachment of file share content

Las Vegas, N.V. – October 20, 2009 — From the exposition hall of the 2009 SharePoint Conference, AvePoint, a leading provider of infrastructure management software solutions for Microsoft SharePoint, today announced the beta-release of the DocAve Storage Optimization Suite, a first-of-its-kind toolset that empowers organizations to efficiently manage SQL storage space via intelligent archiving, instant BLOB content offloading, and migration-free presentation and management of network and cloud file share content thru SharePoint. 

“As organizations increasingly leverage SharePoint as their unified information management platform, the elevated levels of content residing in the SQL database can both hinder performance and prove to be quite costly”, said Dr. Tianyi (TJ) Jiang, AvePoint’s chief operating officer. “The DocAve Storage Optimization Suite introduces pioneering functionality that lets companies ensure SQL resources are utilized with the utmost efficiency. It’s truly a comprehensive solution, and we’re very excited about how these new tools are going to help organizations accelerate their transition to SharePoint in a cost-effective and holistic manner.”

Pioneering Tools to Optimize SharePoint Storage

The DocAve Storage Optimization Suite is comprised of three independently-deployable, yet complementary modules: DocAve Archiver, Docave Connector, and DocAve Extender. Combined, they deliver the industry’s only comprehensive SharePoint SQL storage management toolset.

  • Full support of SharePoint’s native full text search and other search providers that leverage the standard SharePoint APIs

  • Full SharePoint permissions support, including unique and inherited permissions

  • Full metadata and content type support, including custom metadata and column types

  • Full support for alerts and workflows, including those created by third party providers

  • Full support for interacting with SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint 2010 content directly through Office clients

  • Full synchronization of source and presentation layers, ensuring changes made in either location are always presented as the latest

  • Minimal impact on SQL, and improved performance of SharePoint products and technologies

  • The ability to download content from SharePoint products directly from the file-system source without burdening SharePoint’s front-end servers

The DocAve Media Library enables the streaming of audio and video media directly to SharePoint from networked and cloud file shares. This Silverlight-enhanced SharePoint Library provides users with direct access to wmv, wma, mp3, flv, aac, vp6, mp4, mpeg, mpg, avi, and wav files residing in files shares or streaming media servers, without the need for import. These capabilities relieve a long-suffered painpoint for organizations that use SharePoint and would like to utilize or collaborate upon video and audio content.
