SharePoint offers full farm backup options out of the box: First, the web-based Central Administration backup and restore. Secondly, command-line backup tool stsadm.exe. Third option is SharePoint Designer

Unfortunately, these three options have some limitations: no true item level restore option (if a single item needs to be recovered, the entire site must be restored), manually front end backup necessarily , high restore time, frustrating command-line utilities, no back up directly to tape, no custom solution files backup, no IIS backup, no alternate access mappings backup
