Backup and Recovery for Microsoft Exchange Server - Data Domain Deduplication Storage Best Practices Guide
In many companies, Microsoft Exchange is now commonly viewed as a mission-critical application. Its use within an organization has grown from a simple e-mail tool to include contact management, scheduling and file sharing. If the corporate messaging system is not available, productivity goes down, and business opportunities can be lost. Even if e-mail is not critical to your business, chances are that the loss of messaging services, even for short periods would create a substantial disruption to your organisation. Loss of the data maintained in Exchange is unacceptable. Protecting Exchange information is critical and backup is still the primary method used.
This technical brief explores the various practices and considerations for backing up Microsoft Exchange data to Data Domain systems and how to effectively exploit this technology.
