About smart partitions
Earlier versions of Enterprise Vault archived all items to a single, open vault store partition on a storage device. In Enterprise Vault 12.3 and later, you can archive different items to different partitions, depending on how Enterprise Vault has classified the items. For example, if you have configured the classification engine to detect and tag items that contain personally identifiable information (PII), you can choose to archive these items to one partition. Other types of items, such as bids and business proposals, can be archived to a different partition.
These classification-related partitions are called smart partitions. They are identical to standard vault store partitions except in the following ways:
Using the Vault Administration Console, you can associate a smart partition with one or more classification tags that you have defined in your chosen classification engine (Veritas Information Classifier or Microsoft File Classification Infrastructure). Only items to which the classification engine has assigned the chosen tags are archived to the smart partition.
Multiple smart partitions can be open for archiving at the same time. This is not true of standard vault store partitions, which are limited to one open partition for each vault store.
You can configure a standard vault store partition so that Enterprise Vault automatically rolls over to the next available partition when certain criteria are met. This rollover capability is not available for smart partitions.
As with standard vault store partitions, you can create smart partitions on any storage device that Enterprise Vault supports.
