Red Gate Announces Exchange Server Archiver V3

We ran into the Red Gate team at the recent Microsoft TechEd show and learned about the new release of Exchange Server Archiver V3. The major new change with version 3 is support for Exchange 2010. In addition, version 3 provides improved performance and a new simplified storage architecture.

Exchange Server Archive V3 continues its tradition of easy installation and simple operation. End users will like the Outlook interface, which displays archived email and attachments in their native format. Admins will like the easy-to-use setup, archive policy manager, and PST archiving tool. You can view product screen shots here.

Red Gate is targeting the small to midsize enterprise market (50-1,000 mailboxes) and pricing is very reasonable. For example, the price for 250 mailboxes according to the online pricing calculator is $5,597.50 plus support and maintenance.

Red Gate is perhaps a name you have not heard of in the crowded email archiving market, but we like the look of its technology and the overall product seems very well thought out. We recommend you take a look if you are in the market for email archiving. A free 30-day trial, with full technical support, is available as a download from the Web site, as well as online demos and webinars.
