Veritas Enterprise Vault uses highly available (HA) storage, and that can be an effective option for vault store partitions and indexes. However, storage protection in that environment can be difficult, complicated, and expensive. Additionally, EV commonly uses Microsoft or Veritas clustering technologies to address failover of a server. Seamless failover requires the maintenance of a reliable copy of all data stored by EV in a secondary disaster recovery location, and that this copy is accessible, current, and available when failure occurs. Again, this can lead to additional cost and maintenance demands.
During the lifecycle of your EV implementation, the underlying storage platform may change. Storage products may be swapped out, the product’s lifecycle may be at an end, or it may require replacement as part of an overall IT infrastructure review. Updating Enterprise Vault storage platforms can be expensive and difficult to implement, which poses a challenge to business continuity.
Our solution, EVnearSync enables you to backup your Enterprise Vault data, the essential first step in moving between platforms – such as migrating Enterprise Vault to Office 365. Once the data is replicated, the migration can then be executed by Archive Shuttle, our advanced email archive migration tool.
EVnearSync is a replication tool. The solution manages the process of creating a reliable second copy of each archived item. This eliminates the need to take Enterprise Vault offline for backups – as you can take backups of the replicated data. In the event of a failure, users are able to connect to the secondary copy in seconds, instead of waiting hours for backups to be restored.
