Discovery Accelerator components
Table: Discovery Accelerator components describes the Discovery Accelerator components.
Table: Discovery Accelerator components
Discovery Accelerator client
The client is used by Discovery Accelerator administrators to set up and manage the system and by reviewers to access the items that they are to mark.
Accelerator Manager website
This website lets you set up and manage multiple Discovery Accelerator databases in which to store your data. For example, this facility lets you split your data by date range or organizational unit.
Enterprise Vault Accelerator Manager service
This service handles the requests from the Discovery Accelerator client and works with the Enterprise Vault components to access archives, perform searches, and so on.
The customer database is a SQL database in which Discovery Accelerator stores details of cases, user roles, search results, review marks and tags, and more.
You can set up multiple customer databases.
The configuration database is a SQL database that specifies the location of the customer databases and stores details of the SQL Server, database files, and log files to use.
Custodian Manager website (optional)
This website lets you store the details of the custodians (individual employees) and custodian groups for which you want to search with Discovery Accelerator. A custodian group is any collection of employees, such as Windows or Domino groups and distribution lists, Active Directory or Domino LDAP searches, and Active Directory containers.
Discovery Accelerator API website (optional)
This website lets you use the Discovery Accelerator API to integrate third-party tools with the software, and thereby retrieve data from or export it to a Discovery Accelerator customer database.
For more information on the Discovery Accelerator API, contact Veritas Support.
Figure: How Discovery Accelerator works with Enterprise Vault shows an overview of the Discovery Accelerator components and how the application integrates with Enterprise Vault.
Note the following:
All communication between Discovery Accelerator and Enterprise Vault is through the Enterprise Vault Accelerator Manager service.
The Enterprise Vault Accelerator Manager service uses the Enterprise Vault Directory service to find archives, databases and services. Enterprise Vault Storage services are used to preview items and fetch original items. Enterprise Vault Indexing services are used to search for items in the archives.
Before installing Discovery Accelerator, you need to consider your present Enterprise Vault and SQL server installation and plan how you want to integrate Discovery Accelerator. In small installations, Discovery Accelerator can be installed on the same computer as Enterprise Vault and the SQL Server, but it is often installed on a different computer.
Large companies may want to distribute the Enterprise Vault and Discovery Accelerator installation even more in order to spread the load over several servers.
