Santa Clara, Calif. - Nov. 11, 2008
- Mimosa Systems, a leader in Live Content Archiving
solutions, today announced that Mimosa NearPoint™ has
integrated with NetApp® storage and data management solutions
for enhanced archiving control and protection on several NetApp
technologies, including NetApp SnapManager for SQL Server,
SnapDrive®, SnapMirror®, and FlexVol®. This joint
solution simplifies management of the messaging and archive
environments and enables NetApp's cascading Snapshot™ copies
approach for archive data protection. The resulting combination
allows customers to deploy smaller storage footprints for their
email archives, improve their archive recovery times, and reduce
their associated archive management costs. According to internal
benchmarks, the joint solution provides customers with storage
efficiency savings of up to 50 percent when archiving Exchange data
based on internal workloads.
"Our customers are increasingly challenged
with efficiently storing, protecting, and managing the ongoing
business risks stemming from the tremendous quantity of email and
file information created by today's information workers," said
Patrick Rogers, vice president of Solutions Marketing for NetApp.
"Together, NetApp and Mimosa have partnered to develop an
integrated solution that helps our customers address these issues
when archiving their vital information. Our joint solution enables
IT managers to capture and retain all email, calendar, and file
information, protect that information, recover it quickly, and
store the information efficiently and cost-effectively while
meeting or improving business service levels for information
access, search, and eDiscovery."
The combined NetApp and Mimosa NearPoint
solution brings together best-in-class archival and information
management solutions for user-generated content - including email,
IMs, and files - so customers can simplify manageability and lower
operating costs. The joint solution enables IT managers to improve
Exchange management by eliminating email quotas and PSTs while
expediting eDiscovery with zero impact or change to the production
environment. The joint solution additionally provides an integrated
disaster recovery solution for both Microsoft Exchange and the
NearPoint archive, leveraging SnapMirror and SnapManager
technologies so that enterprises can be assured that
mission-critical messaging applications are well protected.
"Content archiving has become a pervasive and
critical priority for organizations of all sizes and industry
verticals," said T.M. Ravi, CEO, Mimosa Systems. "By joining
together with NetApp we are delivering an integrated, best-in-class
solution for archiving and recovery that
addresses the rapidly growing need for eDiscovery, regulatory
compliance, and optimization of storage."
NetApp solutions, when used with NearPoint,
improve storage efficiencies by leveraging NetApp's market-leading
deduplication technology for single-instance storage of files,
email, and email attachments. Additionally, the solution provides
the unique ability to protect and automate the recovery of Exchange
and the Mimosa NearPoint archive through SnapMirror and
SnapManager, improving recovery time objectives.
The NetApp-Mimosa solution centralizes the
management of business and retention policies so IT organizations
can better control the disposition and retention of critical
information content. By archiving user-generated business data in a
central, intelligent repository, enterprises are equipped to
quickly perform discovery, auditing, disposition, and business
intelligence tasks to decrease information risk. The NetApp-Mimosa
