SAS70 audits do not require disaster recovery to be audited; however, backups of email can be critical to survival of a Company should they be sued.
The process to back up emails can be expensive and time-consuming. I tried clustering Exchange servers. It was a mistake from the start – it became too complicated, I had to add 3 additional staff, hardware and don’t forget the licensing costs.
There are some appliances that make it easier to replicate to Exchange and other major mail servers. What appliances worked best for you? Or are there other techniques you can recommend to expedite the email backup process?
