Exchange 2010 Archiving #1: No SIS

This is the first of a series of bulletins on important features of Exchange archiving, namely: single instance storage, retention management, PST management, mailbox size, multi-mailbox search, and item-level restore. Beginning with Exchange 2010, many small and medium-size organizations may find that sufficient features are included, so that third-party archiving tools are no longer necessary.

One of the lesser-known changes to Exchange 2010 is the removal of single instance storage (SIS). The reason for this is related to an architectural change, disk I/O performance, and the availability of cheap disk.

There tends to be a trade-off between better disk I/O performance and reduced storage capacity. Architecturally, Exchange 2010 introduces a new per-mailbox table structure that replaces the original per-database table structure. The original per-database table structure was optimized for SIS, but disk I/O suffered. The new per-mailbox table structure improves disk I/O, but without SIS.

In place of SIS, Exchange 2010 uses compression. Only large, redundant attachments files truly benefit from SIS; otherwise, compression delivers roughly the same volume of data as SIS.

For further information, see this Exchange team blog discussion.

In addition to his role as Ferris analyst, Bob is director of product marketing at Permabit, which offers a grid-based disk storage system.


Determining Retention Policy for Electronic Documents
Vendor Sponsorship Opportunity

It is very difficult for an organization to determine its retention policy for electronic documents. This defers the purchase and implementation of archiving and related technologies.

To clear the logjam, Ferris Research is preparing a white paper and webcast on retention policy. We will give practical advice that concretely helps organizations determine the policies that are right for them.

Vendors are invited to sponsor the project. Sponsorship benefits include:

  • Builds name and brand. The report and webcast will be widely circulated. Sponsors' logos and support as sponsors are very visible in the report and webcast
  • Helps user organizations determine their retention policies. The report and webcast facilitate sales by helping to remove the policy formulation logjam
  • Provides valuable sales collateral: sponsors have distribution rights for the white paper and webcast
  • Reduces the time sales and support staff spend educating prospects on retention policy
  • Allows sponsors to provide input on the white paper and webcast
  • Builds a working relationship with Ferris Research

Further information is here. Sponsorship starts at $5,995.

To order your sponsorship, contact David Ferris at david.ferris@ferris.com or +1 415 367 3436.
