Protect critical Enterprise Vault data for less

Losing access to your Enterprise Vault (EV) system can be highly detrimental to ongoing business operations. EVnearSync can protect your critical EV data without the cost or complexity of highly available (HA) storage solutions.

HA solutions can certainly keep your EV servers humming along, but storage protection in an HA environment can be difficult, complicated and expensive. By contrast, the EVnearSync Enterprise Vault replication tool solves the problem, using your choice of UNC addressable storage.

Fast recovery

EV is able to use Microsoft and Veritas clustering technologies to address failover of a server, but the biggest drawback of this approach is the need to keep a reliable copy of all archived data in a secondary disaster recovery location, and then to be able to recover that data.

EVnearSync from QUADROtech overcomes this problem. As an EV replication tool, it manages the process of creating a reliable second copy of each archived item, eliminating the need for Enterprise Vault archiving storage backups and simplifying the continuity and recovery process. Users are able to connect to the secondary copy in seconds, instead of waiting hours for backups to be restored.
