SQL Server best practices deployment and configuration for Symantec Enterprise vault 11 for Exchange 2013

Hello Experts,

Can someone please provide me with a doc, links, business case, or blog for best practices to configure Microsoft SQL server for Symantec enterprise vault 11 to archive and journaling Exchange 2013?

My understanding, is that we should build a dedicated SQL cluster for EV databases, and prevent performance issues

Your feedback is highly appreciated

You can use standalone instance instead of sql cluster. SQL cluster is only for database availablity and no linking between performance. This is depend on configuration of instance and available resources on the server.

You have to add Vault service account and sysadmin permissions will be require in sql server logins on the SQL Instance where you are going to create Vault DB.

If you already have SQL cluster installed then good.
