Technical Details

Technical requirements for LiveArchive stack
  • ExchangeDefender LiveArchive is a modern web service designed to stand the test of time and deliver long term email archiving. We've built the solution on top of industry standards, open source software, and a long list of supported cloud service providers that can host it all. ExchangeDefender LiveArchive requires:

    • Mailbox hosted on Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft M365/Office 365, Google Gmail, etc (other platforms that support journaling are also supported)
    • Email storage: S3 backend (Amazon AWS or selfhosted MinIO
    • Metadata storage: MariaDB / MySQL (Amazon RDS or MariaDB/MySQL database)
    • Webmail: Docker container (Amazon Lightsail, DigitalOcean droplet, Linode, or docker-friendly NAS from Synology / QNAP)

    ExchangeDefender LiveArchive can run on your own infrastructure (PC or colocated servers), virtual private servers, and public cloud providers (Amazon, Azure, Digital Ocean, Linode, etc). Many of these services are also offered as a free or promotional tier so check with your cloud provider or contact us for advice.

How do I deploy & configure LiveArchive
How do I decide if I should put LiveArchive in a public or private cloud?
  • ExchangeDefender LiveArchive is compatible with both public and private cloud options so your choice will depend on your security requirements, budget, and regulatory requirements for email storage. The experience and functionality will be exactly the same regardless of the backend.

    For ease of use and simplicity, we recommend using Amazon S3 and RDS web services for LiveArchive data storage and Amazon Lightsail for LiveArchive Webmail UI.

    For low cost, we recommend using your local NAS/Docker engine and Oracle Cloud Free Tier for LiveArchive Webmail UI.

    For security obsessed, we recommend a local Proxmox deployment with minimal containers and automatic updates.

    For most flexibility, we recommend Docker containers on your choice of backend infrastructure. You can access LiveArchive open source here.
