I'm pleased to say that a new document has been published by EMC about using Centera with Enterprise Vault, this is a collaborative paper that both EMC & Symantec worked on and is probably now the definitive reference guide for this topic.

You'll find information about:

  • Planning
  • Implementation
  • Operation
  • Performance Expectations
  • Support

This is now available for download using the following link.

Hope you find this useful

Over the last couple of years, we have seen a high uptake of Enterprise Vault File System Archiving (FSA) amongst our install base. However, we have not been able to offer support for customers where Apple Mac systems need to access the archived files. That is, until now. I’m excited to detail our support for FSA and Mac systems through our partnership with Group Logic.

First of all some background to why we have not been able to support Mac systems as clients for FSA. When we create placeholders we set the CIFS ‘O’ Offline attribute. A Windows client knows to treat this file differently to non-archived files. Indeed, on seeing the ‘O’ attribute set, Windows will change the icon of the file so that you have a visual indicator that this is a pointer to the file which is now “somewhere else”. (On Windows  XP you will see a black clock symbol in the bottom left of the file icon. With Vista and Windows 7 you will see an ‘X...

Over the past 10 years, a now accepted technology called “Archiving” or “Active Archiving” has come into play in almost all IT groups operations. When we look back over the past 15-20 years of IT history, we traditionally spent our time as SysAdmin’s doing weekly backups, nightly incremental backups, and quarterly/yearly save sets. The backups we took, provided we had time in our diary for all the other demands in our day, were periodically checked to make sure we could read them, and left alone. Then came a visit from a Legal firm, Government regulator, or HR staffer “We need information contained in files and emails” for John Doe, please restore the backups and give us access to search them. This was typically met with a real groan, sigh, and you knew when this happened that you were going to be sitting with tape catalogues, restoring files, running scripts on the directories/folders/files/emails restored, hoping to give whatever...

Have you already built or moved Enterprise Vault to a virtual platform ? 

If so then you can help us by taking part in our survey on this topic.

We know more and more people are moving their Enterprise Vault servers to virtualised platforms, be that VMware or HyperV and there some great success stories out there. So we felt the time was right to run a survey to capture feedback from people who have already made the move to the world of virtualisation, we're interested to hear how you've configured your VM platform and the type of performance you're getting. We're also interested to hear if the process was a positive one and something you would recomend to others.

We're working on a white paper on this topic to help guide you through the maze of issues which you face when virtualising Enterprise Vault so having some real world feedback about your experience with VM will be most useful.

To take part in this short survey please...
