Enterprise Vault archiving includes direct drag-and-drop access to archive from Outlook
Symantec has unveiled new updates to its backup and archiving software offering to support Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 and other Microsoft applications.
Symantec said that its information management services help extend Exchange 2010 by protecting customers’ information, reducing storage and server costs and recovering information for business, legal and regulatory compliance purposes.
According to Symantec, its Enterprise Vault archiving adds direct drag-and-drop access to the archive from Outlook. The Backup Exec System Recovery 2010 provides fast system backup and restore for Microsoft Exchange 2010.
Over the next several months, the company has scheduled to offer updated versions of NetBackup, Backup Exec and Enterprise Vault to reduce storage by deduplicating information stored in Microsoft Exchange 2010, as well as other applications such as Microsoft SharePoint and Windows Server 2008 R2.
Symantec Enterprise Vault unifies deduplication, tiered storage, policy enforcement and e-discovery of information across multiple applications and Enterprise Vault 8.0 with virtual vault combines access to live, legacy and archived emails in Microsoft Outlook without any visible change to the appearance of the message or stub files. This new capability allows end users to easily drag, search, move and retrieve archived email within Outlook, the company said.
In addition, Backup Exec System Recovery 2010 and the next versions of NetBackup and Backup Exec are scheduled to provide granular recovery of Exchange 2010 email messages, files, mailboxes, and public and private folders from single-pass database backups.
Mathew Lodge, senior director of product marketing at Symantec Information Management Group, said: Organisations of all sizes are wrestling with massive information growth across multiple Microsoft platforms and applications, but especially Exchange. Symantec helps by providing backup and archiving platforms to centrally protect, manage and discover critical information within Exchange 2010 and other Microsoft platforms.
