Exchange Online

You can use the Commvault software to protect data in Exchange Online.


  • You can back up data to the cloud or to local storage.

  • Flexible server environment using one application

    You can use an on-premises or hosted server environment, or both using Command Center.

  • Improved throughput for Office 365 with Exchange

    For Office 365 with Exchange environments, the Exchange Mailbox application uses Exchange Web Services (EWS) for archiving messages, which provides better throughput.

  • Easy configuration

    All data is associated with one Exchange Mailbox server, which makes it simple to scale your data protection system horizontally. As your business needs change, you can add or remove physical clients at any time without any disruption.

  • User-level control

    With the Exchange Mailbox application, content is managed at the user level, rather than at the subclient level. Users are contained within a single subclient where you can assign discrete Exchange plans at the user, database, and user group levels. Using a single subclient eliminates the need to manage load balancing across multiple subclients.

  • Indexed data

    Because metadata (From, To, Subject, receive time, size, and so on) is indexed, you can perform data retrieval quickly.

  • Multistreaming

    Multistreaming means that archiving, cleanup, and restore jobs can be run in parallel and this increases throughput. In addition, each job type can run in multiple streams.

  • Previews without content indexing

    Previews of messages are available for compliance searches and end-user searches whether or not you configure content indexing.
