Below is an overview of the Mailsafe infrastructure. Detailed specifications can be provided once current Exchange and PST storage levels are known and we would recommend a brief technical call with one of our NHS Technical Experts to establish the required infrastructure.
The Mailsafe configuration is a simple infrastructure consisting of an Outlook Plugin for client side archiving for NHSmail and providing access to the Mailsafe archive to search and find emails.
The Exchange server will have the Mailsafe Enterprise Archival Services (20MB) installed to archive the current mailboxes and utilises Exchange Web Services.
The archive infrastructure consists of a SQL Server database with Tier 1 storage/higher performance disks along with a separate storage server based on Tier 2/Lower performing disks.
The above can be in either a physical or virtual environment.
It is recommended that the PST Discovery and Importer tools are installed on multiple 64bit client PCs to speed up the discovery and ingestion of PST files into the archive SQL Server and File Server.
