6/25/2009: ARTEC Offers Comprehensive Archive Consolidation in Heterogeneous E-Mail Server Environments
- EMA®’s Adherence to Standards Pays Off
- No Additional Installation Effort Necessary, Purely Administrative Act
- Average Installation Completed within Four Hours
Karben near Frankfurt am Main / Germany, June 25, 2009. The German headquartered business continuity specialist ARTEC launches an initiative to consolidate e-mail archives in heterogeneous mail sever environments. With this campaign ARTEC provides users with the possibility to merge and compliantly archive their internal and external e-mail data in one central archive. Moreover, the initiative addresses users that want to switch from one mail server to another. They can make the change and access their archived e-mail data without having to migrate the archive.
It is particularly the internal mail traffic which represents a challenge for users in the context of heterogeneous e-mail server environments. Yet that is very often data that contains critical information, and of course may have to be supplied in case of an audit. Difficulties are being rendered by the fact, that the internal communication of the servers is more that tricky to touch. Most users respond by building an individual archive for each server. However, that is time and money consuming.
With ARTEC’s EMA® Archive Appliance that effort may be sidestepped. Because of its continuous adherence to standards, the device allows users to consolidate their entire e-mail traffic including internal messages in only one archive. The precondition for that is the sophisticated approach of the appliance which brings the mail servers to hand over a copy of each e-mail to the archive. Form there, the data may be transferred in the SMTP format to any other e-mail server. That cuts costs and is also an important investment in the protection of critical data. And this approach also has a positive impact on users switching from one mail server to another. For instance: If an organization changes from Lotus Notes to Exchange or vice versa, it may do so without having to migrate the archive.
Moreover, this consolidation is a purely administrative act which does not come with additional installation effort. That is even more noteworthy because the average installation only takes four hours, which is way below market standard.
