Unlike other archiving products, MailStore Server does not store data in a single
database which over time will reach its limit of performance. Instead, a MailStore
archive can be composed of any number of individual archive units called file groups.
Each file group consists of:
Header and administrative information is stored here.
These indexes are created per user and make fast searches of emails and file attachments possible.
In these encrypted files with a manageable size of about 8MB the actual data is stored.
Regularly creating new file groups (e.g. quarterly) ensures constantly high performance
for searches and archiving emails and can be done manually or automatically. Despite there
being several file groups, users only see one overall archive.
Flexible Storage Management
The archive store can be managed flexibly at runtime. Existing parts of the archive, for
example, can be moved to other hard drives or network drives without having to disrupt operations.
- Archiving performance of up to 1,000 emails per minute
- Reduction of storage requirements through single-instance archiving
- Compression of file attachments
- Tamper-proof storage by using SHA1 hashes
- Internal AES256 encryption of email texts and attachments
- Support of iSCSI, Fibre Channel, NAS and SAN
Backups can be done using the integrated backup feature or any backup software.
The software must simply be configured to include the MailStore data directories
which were optimized for incremental backups.
The distribution of the archive among multiple file groups also makes backups
easier. Old file groups can be write-protected and thus excluded from the ongoing
backup procedure. A one-time backup is sufficient.
Easy Backup Restore
In the event of damage or loss, an existing backup can be restored to a new
MailStore Server installation within minutes. Because the backup includes not only
all archived emails but also the complete settings (such as existing users and
privileges), there is almost no downtime. The recovery can be performed as simple
copy procedure in the file system.

MailStore Server will not make any changes to your mailboxes or server configuration!
