Amazon Glacier

We have backed up all of our company's long-term data on Amazon Glacier and we've recently begun experimenting with setting up consultants' workspace on amazon glacier. This will allow us to keep a separation between core employees' work and temporary workers. As we keep expanding we are excited to see other ways we can leverage Glacier.

I recommend Enterprise Vault, especially over native Exchange archiving when:1. You have, or may need litigation holds and searches2. There is a need to archive and set defined retention periods for Journaling3. You have lots of duplicate large emails that you want to get deduplication of4. You need/ want to be able to search attachment in addition to emails5. You want or need Litigation searches or archive retention to be handled by a team separate from your Email team

  • Archiving Email. All incoming and outgoing email is stored by Enterprise Vault and is easily accessible if needed.
  • Retention periods could be set to keep archives for a certain amount of time.

  • We struggle with backups. It's very delicate in that Enterprise Vault (EV) backups must run after Exchange backups run. Given the size of Exchange and EV, it sometimes gets backed up when the full backups run since they run out of time.
  • Because backups can become a problem, it has a trickle down effect and stops when emails are actually archived.
  • Like any Outlook plug in, there can be problems if the plugin stops responding and Outlook disables it.

Symantec Enterprise is one of the best in the industry. We have already deployed their product to thousands of devices in the company and it would be a huge project to go through and change to an alternative product. We have also had much luck in dealing with their customer support. They have been very pleasant to deal with and their technical support has been quite knowledgeable in fixing our issues. This leaves us with very little reason to switch to a new product. We would have to see a significant amount of cost savings to switch to an alternative that offers all the same features and modules.

It is difficult to delete the data as you have to wait for inventory and then bucket modification has to expire.

Alternatives Considered

Since the rest of our infrastructure is in Amazon AWS, coding for sending data to Glacier just makes sense. The others are great as well, for their specific needs and uses, but having *another* third-party software to manage, be billed for, and learn/utilize can be costly in money and time.

We acquired servers from another company through an acquisition that had McAfee installed. It was difficult to manage any of the clients connected and the management server itself had to be restarted on a daily basis. I am aware of an alternative product known as Trend Micro, but I do not have any experience in the using the product or how to manage it in a enterprise environment.

Return on Investment

  • Inexpensive storage.
  • Ease of mind to know you still have the data somewhere in case you need it.
  • Set it and forget it (until you need it).

  • Implementing Symantec Enterprise has had a huge, positive impact on our business objectives by giving our business recovery options that enable us to rebuild any remote server in a couple of hours. Versus having to rebuild them from the ground up which takes 4-6 hours.
  • Implementing Symantec Enterprise has allowed us to have a quicker turnaround with DR tests for physical servers. Using their product has cut the DR test time in half!
  • Implementing Symantec Enterprise has kept our regional virus outbreaks to 0.
  • Viruses are quarantined instantly whenever infections are copied to one of the hundreds of File Servers in our region.
