Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Uses Fortiva

TORONTO -- Fortiva Inc, a leading provider of on-demand email archiving, today announced that the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is using the Fortiva Archiving Suite to meet their email archiving needs. LLS, the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services, has over 1500 full-time employees plus 1000 part-time and volunteer workers working out of 103 locations. The organization is using Fortiva's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution to address their email storage management challenges, improve access to historical data, and reduce their exposure to legal risk without adding to their infrastructure or IT headcount.

As a non-profit charitable organization with staff all across North America, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) relies heavily on email to conduct their day-to-day activities. Before implementing email archiving, LLS faced a number of storage challenges that increased their exposure to risk. Their Exchange store had grown to a point that both data restorations and backups were prohibitively time-consuming and difficult. Additionally, their network storage was growing at an unsustainable rate, with up to 70 percent taken up by PST files.

After conducting a formal analysis and inventory of our storage infrastructure, it was clear that the primary source of our problem was email

"After conducting a formal analysis and inventory of our storage infrastructure, it was clear that the primary source of our problem was email," said Claude Edkins, Vice President of Technology Infrastructure at LLS. "Not only was our Exchange server overburdened, but as much as 70 percent of our network storage was being taken up by PST files."
