PHILADELPHIA, PA, Feb 22, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- MetaVis Technologies, Inc. today announced the immediate availability of MetaVis SavePoint, an agentless SharePoint backup and archiving tool for Office 365 SharePoint. MetaVis SavePoint is a fast, secure and flexible way to keep a local backup of a cloud-based SharePoint Implementation. SavePoint also allows customers to restore SharePoint items, documents, lists, libraries and sites, including valuable metadata from a local drive. Pricing for SavePoint starts at $495 per year.

"Most organizations need the ability to backup and access archived content with minimal business interruption -- and this includes content that lives in the cloud, though this is an emerging use case. The ability to have a local copy of SharePoint data from Office 365 to ensure uninterrupted access and enable recovery beyond Microsoft's retention periods could fill an interesting gap in the market," said Kathleen Reidy, Senior Analyst at 451 Research.

MetaVis SavePoint is agentless and is ideally suited to back up SharePoint content stored in the cloud. SavePoint allows users to:

        --  Backup and Restore SharePoint Content - Create "SavePoints" of
            SharePoint content to local and cloud-based storage. This ensures that
            a company can quickly access content if there are hosted service
            interruptions; restore individual documents without needing to restore
            the whole environment and back up content for long periods of time.
        --  Archive SharePoint Sites - Archive and copy SharePoint content to a
            file system based on specific search criteria including metadata,
            version, author or retention information. The archive content can then
            be deleted from SharePoint freeing up space, enhancing system
            performance and improving search results.
        --  Restore Archived or Backed-up Content - Perform item level restore for
            deleted or long lost content without rolling back the whole SharePoint
            site making it ideal for individual departments or sites.


"With MetaVis SavePoint, we have a local backup of our Office 365 SharePoint content and can immediately, and easily, recover a single document or our entire environment. Not only can we create a local backup of all our documents stored within SharePoint on Office365, but we also have all the metadata. This enables us to access content if there is an interruption of service and easily recover the entire site once Office365 is back up," commented Constantine Baugh-Ruschman, IT Help Desk, Center for Vein Restoration, a nationally recognized the leader in the treatment of varicose and spider veins with 16 locations across Maryland, Washington, DC, Northern Virginia and Western Michigan.

Built on MetaVis Information Architecture Platform, MetaVis SavePoint operates seamlessly with the MetaVis family of products for SharePoint Migration, Administration, and Information Management. SavePoint supports all versions (hosted and premise based) of SharePoint 2010, 2007, Office 365.

MetaVis will be demoing SavePoint at SPTechCon, February 26-29, 2012 in San Francisco, CA in Booth #605.

Office 365 cloud partners interested in SavePoint can contact for MSP pricing for their clients.
