Microsoft Exchange and SQL Server Backup

Microsoft Exchange Server Backup — ZeroIMPACT Recovery

A feature of Rapid Recovery

Recover your Microsoft Exchange mail and mailboxes in minutes by using Rapid Recovery backup, recovery and replication software. Your Exchange mail and mailboxes can be back online within minutes because the Rapid Recovery Live Recovery capability lets you prioritise access to your most-needed data while restoring the whole database in the background.

How Live Recovery works:

Block-level snapshots

Rapid Recovery backups capture your Exchange data, as well as the application itself, in a collection of block-level snapshots for backup.

Application awareness

Rapid Recovery makes sure that all open transactions and rolling transaction logs are completed and caches are flushed to a disk before it creates a snapshot. Rapid Recovery leverages Microsoft VSS for application-consistent snapshots.

Fast restore technologies

Rapid Recovery restoration of metadata allocation tables and database structures, along with its filter driver and queuing technology, assure that your Exchange backup will let you get back online within seconds after a failure.

File prioritisation

The Rapid Recovery filter driver sits on the Exchange Server agent and intercepts any data request from the user. If a user attempts to access a file or email message while a restoration is in progress, the filter driver will determine whether that particular file (or email) has been restored and prioritise the immediate restore of the requested file as necessary. Your end users get fast access while recovery continues in the background, with ZeroIMPACT on their application experience.

How Verified Recovery works:

Automated nightly checks

When you backup and protect using Rapid Snap for Applications, Rapid Recovery tests every backup automatically, assuring you that it’s fully recoverable — no need for time-consuming manual backup testing.

Integrity checks

Rapid Recovery performs nightly integrity checks on all backups and protected Exchange servers in just a few seconds.

Checksum verification

Rapid Recovery performs nightly checksums on Exchange database (EDB) pages.

Mount checks

Rapid Recovery performs automated nightly mount checks of file systems and Exchange Server instances.


If Rapid Recovery finds problems with backups that would prevent you from restoring the data, it notifies you so that you can fix the issue proactively.
