AvePoint yesterday announced an integration of its DocAve life-cycle management solution with Dell’s DX Object Storage Platform, enabling those customers to get the benefits of SharePoint.

Dell’s platform was created for users who need to store, access, protect and distribute digital content. The technology alliance between the companies creates a central point of storage management for SharePoint content, including the ability to customize storage policies, as well as a single point to create and manage backup plans for SharePoint assets, according to an AvePoint announcement of the partnership.

The integration also provides automated SharePoint migration via connectors for assets stored in the Dell platform, with consolidation and archiving of SharePoint content that the company said reduces SQL storage requirements. Further, Dell’s platform offers data protection with customizable replication options between clusters and across sites, according to Dell, which helps organizations continue to fulfill service level agreements.

More information about the integration is available.
