What's new for our customers
Starting with release 14.2, Enterprise Vault introduces Elasticsearch as the new indexing engine that is highly performant, scalable, and reliable. With Elasticsearch indexing, Enterprise Vault now supports snapshot-based backup of indices without any downtime. This new indexing engine brings in higher performance improvements in terms of Indexing, Accelerator searches, and optimizes memory utilization.
If you are upgrading to 14.2, you must provision a new disk for each Enterprise Vault index server to store the Elasticsearch indexes. Additionally, you must provision another disk to store the snapshots of Elasticsearch indexes. The disk to store the snapshots of Elasticsearch indexes can be shared across multiple Enterprise Vault index servers.
Microsoft Teams content collection
Release 14.2 offers the ability to collect Microsoft Teams Chat and Channel data. In Discovery Accelerator, Teams data is presented in its native form for efficient reviews.
WORM support for S3 compliant storage
Release 14.2 supports WORM for Generic Simple Storage Service (S3) primary partition. This feature provides immutability for content archived on S3 compliant WORM storage.
New PowerShell cmdlets
This release introduced a new PowerShell cmdlet to perform index management tasks like Verify, Sync, Upgrade and Rebuild. New PowerShell cmdlet is made available for snapshot-based backup management of Elasticsearch indexes. For details, refer to the Enterprise Vault PowerShell Cmdlets.
New features in Enterprise Vault Dashboard
Enterprise Vault Dashboard v2 introduces a schedule search feature to monitor the health indexes. Now, you can build search schedules at set times or set up recurring searches that run automatically.

Support for Sentiment Analysis using Veritas Information Classifier
Sentiment analysis measures the attitudes, opinions, and emotions expressed within any content, messages using a combination of natural language processing techniques to provide users with a Sentiment Polarity score for that item. A score in the range of 0 to 100 is assigned, where 0 indicates that the item expresses the negative sentiment, 50 indicates that the item represents the neutral sentiment, and 100 indicates that the item represents the positive sentiment. Depending on how you want to interpret data, you can define and tailor policies with sentiment conditions to detect either ranges or exact sentiment scores in items.
