The Exchange Mailbox application is a comprehensive solution that incorporates archiving and cleanup operations. You can archive mailbox messages to secondary storage. Administrators and end users can easily and quickly retrieve archived messages.
For the User Mailbox, cleanup operations create stubs on the production storage. The stubs point to the messages that were moved as part of the archiving and cleanup operations.
For the Journal Mailbox, cleanup jobs operations delete the contents of the journal mailbox from the Exchange server.
For the ContentStore Mailbox, cleanup operations delete the messages from the mailbox on the ContentStore Mailbox Server (SMTP).
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.
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.
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.
Because metadata (From, To, Subject, receive time, size, and so on) is indexed, you can perform data retrieval quickly.
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.
