NetVault Backup Plug‑in for Exchange: at a glance

Quest® NetVault® Backup Plug‑in for Exchange (Plug‑in for Exchange) increases confidence in the recoverability of Exchange. It also lets you create flexible backup policies that can account for multiple recovery scenarios. Support for online backups through Exchange Server’s Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) lets you select your preferred backup method without requiring you to learn Exchange internals. Through a web-based user interface (WebUI) and automated workflow process, the plug-in offers a centralized way to set up, configure, and define backup and restore policies for your Exchange Servers. These policies include policies deployed in a Database Availability Group (DAG). The plug-in offers a detailed level of control that minimizes downtime by allowing you to restore complete Information Stores or individual databases. Through integration with a range of backup devices, your data is protected and stored offsite to meet your disaster-recovery and business-continuity goals.
