Mimosa Boosts E-discovery

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Mimosa Systems, a leader in Live Content Archiving solutions, today announced that it is helping customers expedite eDiscovery by augmenting existing early case assessment (ECA) capabilities with the new Mimosa NearPoint Tiered Storage OptionTM (TSO). Customers already leverage NearPoint for legal decision support, making use of the fact that NearPoint is the only email archive vendor offering full Exchange data capture via continuous application shadowing. With full content capture, organizations can assess their cases quicker and with more confidence.

With archived file and email data projected to grow 55 percent CAGR and 73 percent CAGR respectively from 2007 to 2012 , both storage costs and the operational burdens to manage this volume will be significant. Electronic discovery and information search of the corporate archive are necessitating faster access in order to meet litigation requests and business objectives surrounding information retention and availability. Mimosa Systems is the first to deliver on-demand access to its massively scalable live content archive while decelerating both capital and operational expenses to meet this growing industry demand.

There are plenty of tools available to help customers manage storage resources, develop an electronic records management program and even assist with electronic discovery,” said Brian Babineau, senior analyst for the Enterprise Strategy Group. “Mimosa NearPoint TSO consolidates these tasks and makes it very easy for IT to control storage costs while supporting their legal and compliance teams. With one solution, organizations can easily centralize files and email from multiple locations, index them for search and then set the retention and migration policies based on constantly changing corporate requirements – all while storing the information on the most economical storage infrastructure.”
