Archival Vs Backup

A nightly or other regular backup preserves a snapshot of the content available on an email server at any given time. Backups are important and clearly represent a best practice for any organization, but their purpose is to preserve email content in the event that a server fails and data needs to be restored. Backups are intended primarily as a short-term solution for the tactical purpose of restoring emails to a server.


An archive, on the other hand, captures all email, not just what was housed on the server at a given point in time. Archives are much more strategic in nature and are intended to preserve information for a variety of purposes as discussed below. Archives do not preserve just a snapshot of the data available on a server, but instead preserve a continual stream of email content
