Have you come across a situation in which a user had to recover a Microsoft Exchange email from a NetApp® SnapVault® copy from 6 months ago or even longer? In that scenario, you know the time that it would take to restore a huge Exchange database just to recover an email or two.
But now, with the NetApp Single Mailbox Recovery (SMBR) tool, those recovery tasks are simpler and take much less time. NetApp SMBR is a lightweight tool that’s an add-on component to NetApp SnapCenter® software to help you easily and quickly recover email from Exchange databases.
And it gets even better. You can install the latest release, NetApp SMBR 8.2, on a separate, standalone server to recover email. In earlier versions, you had to install SMBR on an active Exchange Server only.
