Mimosa, Nexsan Bow Archiving

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Mimosa Systems, the leader in live content archiving solutions, and Nexsan Technologies, a leading provider of energy-efficient, long-term disk storage, have partnered to provide an integrated, cost-effective solution featuring next-generation, single-instance information storage with integrity checking and full audit logging. The partnership will focus on delivering advanced archiving solutions that will enable organizations to create and enforce retention and disposition policies to content such as email, instant messaging, and files while providing a free text search index for content related to legal, regulatory, or compliance issues.

Meeting compliance and litigation requirements is an overwhelming challenge for companies that create and manage large volumes of electronically stored information (ESI). All too often, ESI is stored on multiple media across an organization, with oceans of data stored on non-secured, difficult-to-search backup tapes. This situation puts the organization at risk and creates countless management headaches. As compliance regulations continue to grow in volume and complexity, organizations around the world need solutions that help them centralize retention policies while providing fast, secure and cost-effective eDiscovery throughout the information lifecycle. In fact, Forrester Research predicts that eDiscovery spending "will grow to more than $4.8 billion by 2011 as enterprises continue to prepare for electronic discovery."

Together, Mimosa Systems and Nexsan are bringing to market the industry's most comprehensive archiving and storage solutions for retention management and eDiscovery in a cost-effective, intelligent, disk-based system. Mimosa and Nexsan plan to target the specific eDiscovery challenges faced by companies that create and manage ESI to meet legal obligations. Nexsan's Assureon(r) disk-based archiving solution offers WORM (write once, read many) functionality, which ensures that stored information cannot be inadvertently or purposely altered- a critical component of compliance policy.

MimosaTM NearPointTM for Microsoft(r) Exchange Server addresses critical customer requirements for email information archiving, eDiscovery, regulatory compliance, business continuity, and storage optimization. Mimosa NearPoint provides legal search workflow, immediate mailbox and message recovery, disaster recovery, email archiving, and self-service search and access in one solution.

Nexsan's Assureon secure storage architecture delivers a comprehensive array of intelligent features including constant monitoring of file integrity, lifecycle management, file authentication, missing file alerts, and support for remote replication, along with optional file-level encryption. The Nexsan solution provides secure protection and immediate access to archived content at a fraction of the cost of comparable legacy solutions.
