Exchange databases are the physical location where user mailboxes are created and stored. Each user in Active Directory can be assigned one or more mailboxes, which then gets stored as an EDB (Exchange database) file. Apart from storing mailboxes, Exchange databases house public folders for enabling access to shared content and many other objects.
With Exchange Server 2013, you can create a database with unique properties, meaning each Exchange database can be unique. To keep track of database health, admins need to closely monitor key parameters like MAPI connectivity, backup status, and so on. Exchange Reporter Plus addresses this need by monitoring the database health, search capabilities, backups, and Messaging Application Programming Interface (MAPI) connectivity.
