Hi Experts,

I am working for a client that currently may need to undertake an Exchange archiving project. With so many products on the market, and everyone claiming to be best, can anyone recommend a solution that they have first-hand experience of?

The type of thing I'm thinking of is a system with multiple tiers of storage (probably a cheaper array of SATA disks for mid-term archiving and then log term probably with a tape robot).

I know Hitachi used to have an offering although I'm struggling to remember which software they favoured.

Any comments welcomed - TIA.

George

Dear George,

There are lots of third party tools available which does E-mail Archiving . Here is the list
Veritas’ Enterprise Vault
GFI MailArchiver for Exchange
exchange@PAM
Zantaz EAS for Microsoft Exchange
Alchemy MailStore for Exchange
Archive One
Quest Archive Manager for Exchange
MailMeter Archive
Symprex AutoArchive Manager
Mimosa NearPoint

We are using Veritas Enterprise Vault. It is very good. We are also using Veritas Volume replicator for replicating the data across two locations. So you may also check this point like if you are going to use any replication software then check whether they have any archiving software.

Refer http://searchexchange.bitpipe.com/rlist/term/Email-Archiving.html which discusses E-mail archiving from Hitachi

Hope this helps. Good luck

Hi inbarasan, this is very useful help.

Can you please tell me what storage you have your Veritas Enterprise Vault connected to? Do you know whether it supports multi-tier archiving, in other words archiving to cheap disk storage first, then to tape later (say after a few months)?

Thanks for your help.

Yes we are using NAS with SATA Disks. We have the similar hardware setup at the other location and using VVS we are replicating the data.
