Exchange 2010 Archiving: Storage Management Issues

Exchange 2010 is the next version of Exchange Server. It is due for release at the end of 2009 or early 2010. Exchange 2010 includes many new features and enhancements for archiving.

It's early days for Exchange built-in archiving, and storage management is an important area in which it falls short:

  • It does not move archived email off the Exchange Server. Since email never leaves the Exchange Server, Exchange data protection, storage, and recoverability will all be adversely affected as the total Exchange storage increases.
  • It (as well as all previous versions of Exchange) does not perform single instance storage across all of its stores. This means the email you archive in Exchange 2010 is not de-duplicated, which further compounds archive storage problems.

At last month's TechEd, a Microsoft employee presented Exchange 2010 archiving and positioned the offering as a "personal archiving" solution and not an "organizational archiving" solution. This is correct. Today, an organizational archive must keep the archive data off-host, fully de-duplicated, and under full retention management.

Exchange 2010 archiving is a useful replacement for PST files and personal archiving. But it falls short of a true organizational archive solution. Today, only third-party solutions deliver all the features required. ... Bob Spurzem
