Veeam Explorer enhances Exchange backup and ediscovery

Veeam Software, a provider of backup, replication and virtualisation management solutions for VMware vSphere and Windows Server Hyper-V,  has introduced Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange. Currently in beta, the new feature is part of all Veeam Backup & Replication editions (including Free Edition), adding visibility into Exchange VM backups.

VM admins will be able to look inside Exchange backups to find and retrieve individual Exchange items, without an agent.

Free capabilities include:
* Browsing Exchange databases directly from a compressed backup file and having the mailbox database searchable in less than two minutes;
* Searching for specific items across multiple Exchange mailbox databases and object types with advanced search capabilities; and
* Exporting items to a PST file, to MSG files or sending them as an attachment.

The new feature will enable VM admins to perform:

* E-discovery: Easily provide information for internal or external investigations;
* Exchange item recovery: Export accidentally deleted emails, notes or calendar items from a previous backup, and easily transfer these items to the user; and
* Retired mailbox archival: Entire mailboxes can be archived to a PST file before deleting.

Ratmir Timashev, President and CEO, Veeam Software, said, “The virtualisation community has found tremendous value in Veeam Backup Free Edition with more than 20,000 downloads since it was released at the beginning of June. Veeam Explorer for Exchange is designed to replace expensive legacy tools currently on the market for Microsoft Exchange recovery and e-Discovery.”
