Third Party Tools for SharePoint
We are looking into purchasing either Axceler Control Point or AvePoint Doc Ave. They both look really great and I was wondering if anyone has any input/opionons on either set of tools? Thanks.

All. We currently use stsadm as our backup for site collections. We are looking for a tool to consolidate some of the Administrative tasks.

Well if it were me I would consider free tools first (like this one perhaps: http://sushi.codeplex.com/). That would help you determine what shortfalls in administration you might need to address by purchasing a more industrial strength tool. I have no recommendations about either tool, but I do know some engineers who had a nightmare getting one of the two your considering to install correctly on a multi-server farm instance. Neither is I expect cheap, but they have good reputations in the market! Regards John Timney

Humm i understand John, this 3º party tools are extremely expensive and hard to manage. But with a lot of PowerShell scripts, i prefer hire a good IT to create .pst files to manage SharePoint and create all i need, sharepoint is one of the Backup we need to do, AD, Servers, etc etc. About the Databases the same, to create the scripts that will be use for the diferent Farms.

Thank you for that sugguestion. We do currently user Sushi, but mainly for assessing rights. I will go back and maximize the use of Sushi and re-evaluate our needs. This was very helpful
