Is System Center Data Protection Manager or any other Backup Product capable of backing up SharePoint Sites with RBS (Remote Blob Store) Data and restoring them to totally different SharePoint 2010 Farm(s) as shown in the attached illustration using RBS via Local RBS File Stream Provider?
We found that NetApp Snap Manager for SharePoint cannot do this, Symantec Backup Exec, and Net Backup cannot do this, and a whole bunch of other products cannot do this.
We also found that SharePoint Native Backup cannot do this either. It does backup and restore across farms, but instead of placing the RBS data onto a new RBS LUN set aside for it in the new SharePoint farm, it instead rolls all the RBS Image files up into the Database as opposed to placing them on the RBS LUN in the new Farm.
We are using RBS via Local RBS File Stream Provider as opposed to RBS via Remote RBS Provider and would prefer to continue using RBS via Local RBS File Stream Provider if System Center Data Protection Manager or another product is capable of handling that.
We are pressed for time and really need a yes or no answer on this as soon as possible.
