PST files are a bit of a paradox- they’re equally great and painful. End-users love them because they are in total control of how and where they save their valuable messages for easy access later. IT departments hate them due to their unstable nature (especially when they grow into the multiple GB territory) and their ability to consume vast quantities of File Server resources.

This is an age old problem and one that Symantec Enterprise Vault has been helping resolve for many years. It is better for everyone if end-users make use of a centralized, managed archive for their long term message retention needs and allow IT departments to remove the need for PST files, which helps free up the disk, backup and support desk overhead associated with PST usage. End-users are happy, and IT departments are happy. How often can you say that?

At Symantec, we recognize that PST eradication is difficult. To try and make this process as easy as possible, we have made...

Today the Enterprise Vault team celebrates the release of 10.0.4 and what a release it is!

10.0.4 is our largest ever Enterprise Vault service pack. It contains more features, fixes and performance and scalability testing cycles than we’ve ever put into a single service pack release before. We have also successfully been running 10.0.4 internally in our production environment since March. If that doesn’t whet your appetite, then let’s take a brief look at what is included in this release:

Enterprise Vault Extensions: A framework that enables Symantec Technology Enabled Program (STEP) partners to develop new archiving applications to extend the set of content sources that can be archived by Enterprise Vault along with the ability to view and manage these Extensions through the Vault Administration Console.

** Added 1st August **

Final update.

The hotfix referenced below is now available for download via the link below:

The good news is that we pulled in CU2 support as well. Therefore this EV 10.0.4 hotfix will provide support for archiving from all Exchange 2013 environments, native or mixed mode.


**Added 29th July **

Support for Exchange 2013 original release and CU1 running in mixed mode is coming this week.

It will require EV 10.0.4 and a new server-side hotfix which will be released by end of this week (week commencing 29th July). I'll update this blog once this hotfix is available.

Support for Exchange 2013 CU2 in both native and mixed mode will follow and be available by mid-August. More details on this to follow.

Today we are announcing that Enterprise supports journal archiving from Microsoft Exchange Server 2013, which is great news for our customers considering an upgrade to the new platform. It is also great news for organizations that may not have an archive in place yet, but are looking to add one to help streamline their migration process (more on that here), while meeting their long-term information retention requirements and eDiscovery needs.

Any time I discuss the migration process with a customer, the conversation almost always turns to ingestion, which makes sense (if you are taking it out of one place, you likely need to put it in another place, right?).

Let’s cover what I mean by “ingestion” when talking about Enterprise – this is a carefully outlined process followed by our specially-trained Data Management team that allows us to...
