organizations use Google Apps. Google Apps for Education is free
for K-12 and higher, and there is always need for schools to backup
and archive their data.
Integrated within Google Apps for Education, Google Apps Vault
is developed and designed to reduce costs and risks by allowing
users to archive, manage, and preserve emails and on the record

Here are four big reasons why Google Apps Vault will help

Here are some of use cases:
- A group of students were accused of bullying another student.
However, the students denied the accusation. While going through
chat and email records archived in Google Apps Vault, the school
dean was able to find evidence of the bullying.
- Parents sue a school with 1,000 students. The parents' lawyer
asks, in the discovery process, to see all of the email traffic
related to their child. In response, the IT Admin of the school can
search for related emails in the Vault, including any emails that a
member of the staff has deleted.
The cost for Google Apps Vault for Education is 20% of the price
of the Business version of Vault. Vault is free for students, but
all staff and faculty users have to pay in order to use Vault's
archiving function. Please note that this pricing is available only
to customers of Google Apps for Education.
If your organization does not use Google Apps but wants to
qualify for Google Apps for Education, your organization must meet
one of the following criteria: it must be a K-12 or higher
educational institution, a nonprofit, or it must be accredited by a
valid accreditation agency.
