Happy New Year and all the best for 2009.


Now that the holidays are out of the way, welcome back  to what will no doubt be a roller coaster year as if 2008 wasn't enough for us all.


Anyway - onto the topic of this post.



We are pleased to announce that during the holiday period , we formally released Enterprise Vault 8.0 (EV 8.0) and it is now available for download via the FileConnect portal ; you can also order a media kit from there as well.


So your first task is to login into the portal and download the software and documentation. Then you can start to think about the planning, testing and preparation for your upgrade to version EV 8.0 from your existing EV 2007 environment. We’ll be posting more information on this site in the coming weeks to explain a little bit more about the new features and...

The EV team are alive and well and continue rocking all over the world!


Contrary to a few hopeful blog postings predicting the early demise of the EV product team and the end of Symantec’s focus on the archiving market’s #1 product, we’re pleased to re-affirm that there was zero impact  to the overall EV team by the recent Symantec organisational changes. This includes the EV product team, engineering, product management, marketing, field enablement, consultancy and support; in fact we have recently added numbers to some of these teams as demand continues for EV to outstrip the general market growth!


The EV team is one of the main reasons why it is the archiving market’s #1 product because within it we have  the following groups of dedicated & hard working people.


  • 180 product development staff

  •  A field enablement team...

We have just released a new technote which explains the recommended method to support a new minor release of Domino (e.g. 7.0.x, 8.0.x, etc) as an Enterprise Vault 'target mail server for archiving only', prior to full certification of the new minor release by the Enterprise Vault certification team. When there is a new a minor version of Domino, the Enterprise Vault certification team may need to undertake an extensive testing effort. This is  to ensure that all supported functionality of that Domino server version as both an Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway and a target mail server continue to operate as expected. If you need to upgrade your Domino mail servers to the latest minor release before we have completed our certification process , then read the following technote to understand how this should be done to keep within the boundaries of what will be supported by Symantec.


Here's the link to the in depth technote...
