Mimosa NearPoint for SharePoint Archiving
Mimosa NearPoint for SharePoint Archiving provides a holistic solution to managing SharePoint data with integrated archiving, recovery, and eDiscovery. Mimosa NearPoint offers comprehensive SharePoint data capture available. Customers can capture all content types and associated metadata and attachments, perform continuous capture via Change Notification, and preserve the relationships between sites and content.
NearPoint also provides full-text indexing and global single-instancing on all archived content. This content can then be offloaded from SharePoint to enable storage cost savings while maintaining seamless end-user access via stubbing. Moreover, Mimosa NearPoint also manages the retention and disposition of SharePoint content across the archive in accordance with organizational policies.
With comprehensive capture and archiving capabilities also comes the ability to provide robust SharePoint recovery functionality. Mimosa NearPoint allows both fine-grained and coarse-grained recovery. For fine-grained recovery, NearPoint allows administrators to browse and search the SharePoint hierarchy via the NearPoint admin console to select a recovery scope (e.g., specific item) and destination. Content can then be restored to the original or to a new destination while NearPoint automatically resolves discrepancies and respects permissions. With coarse-grained recovery, NearPoint recovers full SharePoint environments. This provides both recovery and migration solutions for SharePoint components such as the front-end web server, content databases, shared service provider (SSP) databases, the configuration database, and the search database and search index files.

Does the trick and more
So far the software has helped me with what is claimed. I've not yet explored/enabled all of the features, but being able to recover data without the need for an recovery farm and the storage management functionality have been superb. Highly recommended.
Good storage management that keeps the index transparent to end users
Fairly easy to deploy
