Increased performance for SharePoint Online Migration, Backup, and Synchronization
Customers can run this Layer2 Solution locally in their own network or, alternatively, in their own private or public cloud, such as Microsoft Azure. Connections can be easily established by applying connection strings without any coding. The setup can be managed manually or – in case of a larger number of connections – by applying PowerShell automation. The app offers additional helpful options, such as including or excluding folders or files from / to synchronization by name, type, size, or age using a SQL-like query language. Pre-selected metadata columns are available automatically for field mapping. Custom metadata can be added during runtime with the help of so-called Dynamic Columns via C# programming – especially helpful in case of more complex migrations from Document Management Systems (DMS) to SharePoint.
The Layer2 Cloud Connector does not require any installation or changes within the connected systems. Connections are established directly and secure without any 3rd parties or clouds being involved. A centrally running Windows Service keeps the files in sync with flexible logging and alerting.
„We decided to create a new data provider, completely based on the new Microsoft APIs to get rid of all the time-consuming compatibility requirements for older SharePoint versions, also of some advanced features to deliver maximum performance to our clients”, reveals Frank Daske, Business Development Manager at Layer2, about the new solution. “The common Layer2 Data Provider for SharePoint will still be available to support SharePoint Server 2010 and 2013, also some specific advanced features.”
