Metalogix Offers Free SharePoint Archiving

Metalogix is offering SharePoint archiving, at no charge.

Metalogix Archiving Express for SharePoint is a free tool. It provides hardware-independent hierarchical storage management and easy installation. No support is included beyond a user forum.

At a later time, Metalogix will introduce a for-fee version with more bells and whistles. In the meantime, it hopes the free version will help build its name and market share.

Comments:

  • SharePoint needs archiving. Some major reasons are:
    • User performance suffers as the volume of content grows. Offloading to an archive ameliorates the situation.
    • Various regulations require archiving for document recovery.
    • Makes backups and restores easier for administrators and eats up less of their time.
