3 What does Evault do? Frees up space on your mailbox, by moving mailbox items to an EVault Archives at off-peak times For the user, archiving activity is not noticeable. Archived items are marked with a shortcut icon When your mailbox is enabled for EVault archiving, a Vault is created for your mailbox.

Archived items are marked with a shortcut icon in your mailbox. Double click the icon to access the archived item.

4 Why use EVault? Controls storage and life cycle of emails
Enables cost-effective storage of massive volumes of s Simplifies administration by centrally defining policies The volume of unstructured electronic data is continually and rapidly increasing. This data is a critical part of the business. Evault solves the problem by providing a single, highly scalable, repository for any type of data, archived from a variety of sources. EVault removes the long term storage burden from front line systems, freeing them to better serve users day-to-day needs. EVault uses flexible policies with an open storage model which reduces the over all cost of the data management and storage with minimum administrative overhead.

5 Message store Microsoft Exchange EVault
Ideal for day-to-day information handling Not ideal for long term, large scale management of data EVault Long term storage of older s Good management & control MS Exchange is ideal for creating, editing and sending documents on a day-to-day basis. A good communication tool. As the amount of data grows, so is the amount of backup and recovery times. Administrators are then forced to impose quota for mailbox. Users on the other hand want to keep absolutely everything regardless of its size. If both administrator and users are then forced to spend excessive time to simply manage their data, Exchange becomes a burden rather than a productive tool.
