There has been...and continues to be a lot of interest in the Virtual Vault feature that was introduced in V8 SP3.

If you've not heard about Virtual Vault before then you can go and watch a video clip which explains it here

We know there have been a lot of questions & discussion on the forum about how to implement Virtual Vault so are pleased to be able to share more details with you. We've now published a couple of documents which will help you understand VIrtual Vault in more detail so please go and download the following docs and hopefully we'll answer some of your questions.

When I visit customers I often get asked about how they can help themselves and find out more about EV. I'm always happy to send them the various useful links which I know they'll find useful or even essential for keeping up to date with EV developments. So rather than have to copy paste this list each time I need to share it I thought I'd post it here for everyone to take advantage of and then I can also have a single URL added to my email signature which will reference this list. Having been involved in EV for so long I take it for granted that customers and partners can find this stuff easily but now they really can...I think the following is a great compendium of must know locations and hope you all find this to be of use.

Update for 2013 - New Compendium Now Available with all the below links + more.

Attention:  Please note that Enterprise Vault 9.0 Beta and First Availability registration is now closed.


Enterprise Vault v9 is on the horizon and the beta program is going to be starting shortly. Having customers beta test our releases complements our own in house QA testing and helps to ensure that a quality release is delivered. We have already asked for customers interested in testing the Exchange 2010 functionality to signup for the beta. I'm looking for any of our FSA customers that may be interested in signing up for the beta.

FSA v9 will be bringing much requested enhancements and performance improvements to FSAUtility (for...

One of the great things about working on a product development team at Symantec is the depth of resources at our disposal to make our products as good as they can be. One of the resources that the Enterprise Vault team now makes extensive use of is the User Centered Design (UCD) team.
UCD is a process of product design & development that starts with end-users and their needs; rather than with technology.  It involves keeping users at the center and “checking in” with them in all the phases of development. The goal is to make our products easier to use, more efficient, more consistent and more satisfying.
As part of this process the UCD team works directly with our customers to understand your use cases and workflows and to see how well certain designs and proposals resonate within the install base. Feedback is gathered through interviews potentially using mock-ups and proto-type...

 We’re currently working very hard on full support of Microsoft Exchange 2010, at a level that our 13,000+ customers are used to and expect from us. Nevertheless, the questions are coming thick and fast about when and how Microsoft Exchange 2010 will be supported. We therefore decided that it’s time for an update, and here’s what we can tell you today:

  1. We plan to release full support for Exchange 2010 SP1 with Enterprise Vault 9.0 
  2. We plan to run a Beta program for EV 9.0 beginning in March this year* 
  3. Following that, we plan to run a First Availability program prior to General Availability
  4. Enterprise Vault 9.0 is currently on schedule to be available in the second half of this year**

There are...

 Late last year, Gartner published it's latest (and third, if my memory serves me correctly) Marketscope for the E-Discovery segment. It was put together by a highly respected team of Gartner analysts, including Debra Logan, Whit Andrews, and John Bace. Symantec was rated as a "Strong Positive" in this Marketscope for the E-Discovery segment. 

 Obviously we're very proud of all the teams here at Symantec and within our partners, who've contributed so much to Symantec Enterprise Vault™. I'd like to take one more chance to thank all those people right here and now. We're also very happy that over 13,000 customers are deriving value from their investment in Enterprise Vault. 

 A few things changed with 2009's Marketscope, and I thought them worthy of note and perhaps a quick discussion. Firstly, this Marketscope focuses purely on software vendors. It doesn't matter if the software is delivered as installable or as some kind of...

  • Planning
  • Implementation
  • Operation
  • Performance Expectations

Just wanted to talk a bit more about EV 8.0 SP3 from a SharePoint point of view.

With SP3 (which was released last week) the user experience is now much more seamless and.....well I could go on and write more about the various things we've done with EV Archiving for SharePoint but I'll leave this to Dave Scott our Group Product Manager for this product. He's recorded a short video which you should definately watch if you have any interest in archiving your SharePoint content.
