Data volumes are exploding.  We see it all around us. The problem is that too much data can have a very negative impact on user productivity. Think about how long it takes to sift through emails after returning from vacation?  Consider how long it takes to complete a purchase on an Ecommerce sight on Black Friday?  The more data, the longer any of these processes take and the more time spent combing through more and more data.  The Informatica Application Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) team is working with Symantec and our customers to help them find ways to control the impact of ‘too much data’. We are helping them to define projects that improve their ability to meet SLAs and application performance, reduce costs and mitigate any compliance risks – all while IT budgets remain relatively flat.

If enterprises don’t take a proactive stance on managing data growth in both Structured and Unstructured data sources, data will...

Symantec Corp. | 18 Dec 2012 | 8 comments

by Greg Muscarella, Senior Director, Product Management

Once again Gartner has named Symantec as a leader in the Enterprise Information Archiving magic quadrant.  We’ve continued to invest significantly in this market and it is gratifying to see the recognition for the continued effort we put into archiving both in the cloud and on premises with our Enterprise and Enterprise Vault products. Symantec has now been rated a leader 9 years in a row.

This year marks a transition in a couple of regards.  We are seeing an acceleration of customers looking for the convenience and simplicity of SaaS based archiving solution. The caveat being that...

There Are Many Mysteries In Life –

What’s behind door number 2?  Is it a boy or a girl?  Will my archive migration be successful?

Archiving is a long-term commitment between a vendor and its customers.  If this relationship fails, as a customer, you are forced to look at new options and consider migrating to a new vendor.  Whether you are moving from one on-premise archive to another or going to the cloud, this process can appear daunting, however through the years we have watched customers go through the process successfully. Here are some best practices to consider before migrating.

Things to Consider Before Migrating:

  1. Be realistic.  Set reasonable time lines and budgets for completion of the project. It is also important to set expectations with key stakeholders from your storage, backup, IT operations, legal/eDiscovery and messaging teams.
  2. Maintain data...

We are pleased to announce the latest release of Enterprise is now available!

Enterprise joined the Symantec archiving family in June 2011. Since then, our team has been busily working to deliver consistent updates to our customers. There has been buzz around the water cooler about this quarter’s release for several months because it means we can now help our clients securely archive content beyond email, including files from Microsoft® SharePoint and Box as well as public and private messages and attachments posted on Salesforce® Chatter.

What’s new – support for non-email content sources:

  • Microsoft SharePoint 2003, 2007 and 2010 (on-premise only): Capture files from SharePoint document libraries and make them available for search in the archive by end users and approved reviewers.
  • Box: Archive existing and new files stored in Box since the...

Today Symantec will announce the release of Enterprise Vault 10.0.2 which includes major changes to our SharePoint agent.   EV has supported SharePoint since 2002 and has always provided storage optimization by replacing documents with 6 byte shortcuts that are completely seamless to the user.  

In EV10.0.2 we extend the agent’s capabilities to also archive custom lists, blogs, wikis, discussion boards and several other list types.  

This new functionality expands the solution in three ways:

  1. Further storage optimization – Now EV for SharePoint can replace attachments from supported list and social media with shortcuts dramatically reducing overall SharePoint storage
  2. Address Site Proliferation – When I speak to SharePoint Administrators, one of their primary concerns is addressing site proliferation.   Sites often long outlive their usefulness yet no one wants to be...

** Update

Enterprise Vault 10.0.3 is available from today. See announcement here:


As you have all no doubt seen, Microsoft have recently lifted the lid on its next version releases for Exchange Server, SharePoint Server and Office products. With preview software hitting the streets earlier this month we have heard from lots of our customers asking when we plan to support these releases and in which version.

We have been participating in the partner Technology Adoption Program (TAP) for these products for some while now and progress has been going well.

Therefore to answer this question simply we are planning an Enterprise Vault 10 service pack release which will...

Here’s an interesting dilemma: What would you rather do – get your teeth cleaned at the dentist, or process a search request for your in-house Legal team?

On Monday, June 11, Symantec conducted a survey on the exhibit show floor during Microsoft TechEd North America 2012 in Orlando, FL. There, over 100 qualified respondents were asked a total of 18 questions surrounding their use of Microsoft Exchange and Microsoft Exchange Online/Office 365.

Surprisingly – or maybe not – over a third of respondents would rather get their teeth cleaned at the dentist than process a search request on email for their in-house Legal team.

We learned from survey respondents that being able to search for archived and un-archived content within Exchange and beyond (45%) was one of their top eDiscovery goals. By indexing all information stored in the archive, Symantec...
