Integration with Metalogix RestorePoint

A Primary feature with this release is the integration with the Metalogix RestorePoint product. The StoragePoint interface has included a page where users can restore items, folders or lists from SQL database backups. Two major interface changes have been made to help restore the content including:

·A new RestorePoint interface page with a link from the StoragePoint Main Menu.

·A new endpoint type - Content Database Backup Endpoint, which is configured on General Settings. This endpoint is for all profile content database backups. Backup Endpoints will still be used for backing up blobs with the regular profile backup synchronization.

Additional Scope Filters for Unused BLOB Cleanup Timer Job

StoragePoint Unused BLOB Cleanup can add additional filters for endpoints and Large File Uploads. This can help speed up the process.

Added Filtering for ULS logs on the Dashboard

The dashboard is a useful place to get an overview of the StoragePoint configuration and status. ULS log messages can be read directly from the dashboard, and now there are filters so that the errors and warnings can be sorted by profile ID, Profile Name, server, or severity level.

E-Mail Notification for offline license activation

The offline license activation is always required if there is no direct internet access. When using offline activation, the license must be re-validated after 180 days to update changes from the license server. StoragePoint now supports email notification to remind customers of the required activation.
