Forwardwhat we will and won’t discuss… • What’s covered… • Improvements in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 • Business continuity management solutions on the Microsoft “stack” • What’s not covered… • Partner, ISV, and 3rd party solutions • Design and implementation of business continuity management solutions

  6. Objectivesat the end of this session you should… • Understand the improvements that support business continuity management solutions in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 • Understand the basic capabilities of Data Protection Manager 2010 • Understand the importance of planning solutions targeted at specific scenarios

  7. Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010what’s new and improved… • Improved site deletion logic • Configuration only backup • Script dependent operations have UI entry points • Browse content through Central Administration • Unattached content database data recovery • Snapshot support • Read only support • Database mirroring support • New Service Application architecture

  8. Planninggetting started with continuity management solutions… • Understand what to protect before how to protect it… • Apply objectives • Service Level Agreements • Recovery Point Objectives • Recovery Time Objectives • Understand what is provided out of the box… • Understand business continuity management is an ongoing process

  9. Technology Positioning Failover Clustering Geo-clustering or Synchronous Database Mirroring P2P Replication Log Shipping RTO Backup/Restore

  10. Understandwhat you need to know before you get started… • Content comprises a deployment in most cases • Configuration is key to replication • As RPO/RTO decrease, continuity costs increase • Understand differences between cold standby versus warm standby solutions • Understand what SharePoint provides and how to use it to your advantage • Data loss is non-negotiable

  11. Cold Standby Solutions Solutions for High Availability and Disaster Recovery

  12. Recycle Binprovides simple content recovery… • Recycle Bin • Two-stage implementation • Self service recovery of most content in first stage • Site collection administrator recovery in second stage • Enabled by default • Configured on per Web application basis • Relatively unchanged in 2010

  13. Versioningprotects items and files from overwrite… • Provides multiple copies of the same document • Protects documents from overwrite • Enabled at the library or list level • Items and files can be versioned • Relatively unchanged in 2010 • New Efficient File Transfer (FSSHTTP) between client and server

  14. Unattached Content Database Data Recoveryprovides simple content recovery +… • Enables recovery of… • Site collections • Sites • Lists • Document Libraries • Does not require database Web application attach • Supports SQL Server snapshots • Enables content browsing

  15. Snapshotsprovide additional backup resiliency… • Creates a stable point-in-time view of the site data to minimize the possibility of corrupt backups, while still allowing the site to be read+write for end users • Can be programmatically leveraged with Backup-SPSite and Export-SPWeb • Can use the SPDatabase.Snapshots property to access the SPDatabaseSnapshotCollectionclass to schedule snapshots • Test your solution to ensure that it's appropriate for your data type • Databases that involve a lot of updates will cause poor performance and high storage needs as more snapshots are taken

  16. Unattached Content Database Data Recovery / Snapshots Bill BaerTechnical Product ManagerMicrosoft Corporation DEMO

  17. Data Protection Managerprovides simple content recovery and much, much more… • Enables recovery of… • Site collections • Sites • Lists • Document Libraries • List Items (I.e. Large Binary Objects) • Not limited to just content database subordinate objects • Does not require a recovery farm (2010) • Does not protect Search Service applications

  18. Data Protection Manager 2010enterprise ready… Disk-based Recovery Online Snapshots (up to 512) Active Directory® System State Up to Every 15 minutes Data Protection Manager Tape-based Backup Disaster Recovery with offsite replication & tape Data Protection Manager file services

  19. Large Binary Objectsare the bulk of your content… • Think “inside” of the box • BLOBs are contained in Content Databases • SQL Server or SharePoint backups are adequate in most cases • Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 enables limited recovery without Web application attach

  20. Service Applicationsconsiderations and general information on protection… • SharePoint backup provides optimal coverage with minimal effort • Improved resiliency and scale, particularly Search • Data Protection Manager can be used

  21. Service Applicationswhat can I use…

  22. Farmsolutions for all of the above and then some… • SharePoint and Data Protection Manager are the key solutions • SQL Server alone is not an option • VSS Writer potentially, but would require significant investments – reserved for ISV’s in most cases

  23. Farm Backupwhat can I use…

  24. Configurationbacking and restoring configuration settings… • Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 enables new configuration-only backup • Supported through Central Administration, STSADM, Windows PowerShell, and code • Primarily protects solutionsh • * Can be used for replicating one environment’s configuration to another

  25. Configuration Backupwhat can I use…

  26. Customizationsbacking up and restoring customizations… • Note to developers – package all customizations as solutions • Web application (content database) and Farm backup cover custom and user code solutions • Redeployment is required on recovery

  27. Gradual Site Deleteresolves lock escalation… • Gradual Site Delete • Mitigates locks and lock escalation • Benefits ECM scenarios Gradual Site Delete Remove Content Check dbo.SiteDeletion dbo.SiteMap dbo.Sites /sites/contoso dbo.SiteDeletion /sites/contoso Remove SiteMap Reference Remove Sites Reference <GUID> Add SiteDeletion Reference

  28. DIYbusiness continuity management on your terms… • API available to create SharePoint-based solutions • VSS Writer • Think “outside” of the box • Site Recycle Bin • Uses SiteDeleted and WebEvents + backup or PRIME APIs • CodePlex solution works in 2010 without modification

  29. Backup Recovery Scenariosgetting it all back… • Backups can be performed to support many recovery scenarios. Common scenarios include: • Recreate a farm on new hardware, or in a different location, assuming that no parts of the original farm are available. (Disaster recovery) • Create a new farm based on an existing farm’s configuration and backups • Create backups to support highly-available farms • Archive versions of a site • Use unattached databases to recover site collections, sites or lists (documents possible with OM)

  31. Warm Standby Solutions Solutions for High Availability and Disaster Recovery

  32. Service Application Architecturehow the new Service Architecture can help… • Shared Services Provider concept retired • New model provides a set of components that can be distributed across servers • Servers become role agnostic • Flexibility, scale, redundancy through component-based approach • Services are now a logical architecture • Example: Search • Components: Crawl, Property, and Administration • Internal: Index Partitions

  33. Read-Only Modedisaster recovery scenarios through read-only environments… • Read-only support provided for • Service Applications • Content databases • Service Applications • Implemented through applying a IsReadOnly flag on the Shared Service Application Layer • Granularity of Read-Only can span a Subscription (Partition) ID to allow for a multi-tenancy hosting environment perform maintenance on groups of users • Content databases • Implemented through setting the IsReadOnlySPDatabaseproperty programmatically

  34. Read-Only Content Database Bill BaerTechnical Product ManagerMicrosoft Corporation DEMO

  35. Database Mirroringnew support for SQL Server database mirroring… • New Database Mirroring awareness in Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 • Expands out of the box high availability solutions beyond Failover Clustering • UI entry points in most cases; otherwise, complimented with Windows PowerShell support (code sample coming up)

  36. Database Mirroring Param([String]$database,[String]$server ) functionMain() { $db= get-spdatabase | where {$_.Name -eq$database} $db.AddFailoverServiceInstance($server) $db.Update() Write-Host "Database $database configured with failover server instance $server." } Main * Commands vary for Service Applications

  37. Failover Clusteringnew opportunities, same supportability… • Windows Server 2003 • Status quo • Windows Server 2008 • Supports geographically dispersed clusters is Multi-Site Clustering • Nodes can now reside on different, routed subnets • Enables both high availability and geographically disperse disaster recovery • Improved scale with GPT

  38. Log Shippingcontent replication solutions through SQL Server Log Shipping… • Think “inside” of the box • Cost effective and available to 99% of deployments • Think “outside” of the box • Distributed File System Replication attach opportunity • Use in lieu of Log Shipping Copy Job • Provides increased performance and security • New Configuration Database changes eliminate detach/attach scenarios

  39. SQL Server 2008get more with SQL Server 2008… • Backup Compression • Transparent Data Encryption • Torn Page Repair • Log Stream Compression Content database with ~370K documents SQL 2008 with compression ran the backup 48% faster and consumed only 20% of the disk used by SQL 2005
