SharePoint 2013 Backups and Restores

The SharePoint 2013 backup architecture and recovery processes include farm backup and recovery, granular backup and recovery, and recovery from an unattached content database. You can complete backup and recovery operations by using the SharePoint Central Administration website or Windows PowerShell cmdlets. Note that some built-in backup and recovery tools may not meet all the requirements of your organization.

Million thanks to Microsoft for publishing such wonderful articles and make it publicly available to all of us.

The following articles on TechNet and related resources provide information about backup solutions for SharePoint 2013.The IT professionals who are responsible for backup and recovery solutions are expected to have an understanding of the technical backup details.
A backup is a copy of data that is used to restore and recover that data after a system failure. While backups allow you to restore data after a failure they are also useful to keep for routine purposes. These purposes include copying a database from one server to another, setting up database mirroring, and archiving to comply with regulatory requirements.
