At scheduled times, Enterprise Vault automatically copies content from the SharePoint server and stores them in Enterprise Vault SharePoint archives. Archived documents can be left on the SharePoint server or deleted, as required, and shortcuts to archived documents can be created on the SharePoint Server.
If versioning is enabled for a document library, you can configure the number of versions of a document that are to be left on the SharePoint server after archiving. An Enterprise Vault version history link enables users to view archived versions of a document from the SharePoint version history page.
An Archive Search web part can be added to SharePoint site pages to enable users to search the SharePoint archives. Documents can be viewed and saved.
The benefits of archiving SharePoint Servers can be summarized as follows:
Control of SharePoint storage growth by moving older content to online archives. Archiving is automatic and policy driven.
Enable the use of cost effective storage for long term retention of older information. Archives are storage independent, enabling the use of cost-effective storage solutions such as disk, optical, tape, SAN, NAS, and SSP.
Retain the intellectual property represented by SharePoint stored content.
Archive information to meet legal retention requirements.
Central information retention for distributed departmental systems.
Ease system consolidation.
SharePoint holds the newest, changing information, while Enterprise Vault provides managed, long term, high volume, online storage of older information.
SharePoint archiving requires a separate Enterprise Vault SharePoint license.
