In-Place Archiving in Exchange 2013

In-Place Archiving requires either Outlook 2013/2010/2007 stand-alone or MS Office Professional Plus 2013/2010/2007 volume licenses.

It’s also available with Outlook in MS Office 365 ProPlus, Office 365 Enterprise E3 and Office 365 Midsize Business subscriptions.

As it’s considered to be a premium feature in Exchange Server 2013, it requires Standard + Enterprise CALs for all email users.

  • It allows admins to create separate databases for archiving emails and to keep these on a low-performance/cost storage. 
  • It supports quotas, basic message tagging and automated processing either through Exchange retention policies or user-defined rules. 
  • Just as normal databases, archive can be protected by DAGs. 
  • It has limited search capabilities. 
  • Single instance storage is not supported, and data deduplication and compression of active databases (and these archive DBs are active ones) is not supported either. 
  • It does not support any non-Exchange hosted email content.

In-Place eDiscovery is an improved version of a discovery search feature from Exchange 2010 and it supports search across the content in Exchange, Lync and SharePoint.

As in Exchange 2010, archiving is configured through retention tags and policies, and it can be combined with cleanup of deleted items.
