Mimosa Systems Announces Next-Generation Archiving Solution for Microsoft Exchange Server 2010

Mimosa NearPoint to Provide Comprehensive Email Archive to Retain, Retrieve and Discover Long-Term Exchange Content

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - November 9, 2009) - Mimosa Systems, the leader in next-generation email archiving, file archiving, and SharePoint archiving solutions, today announced that Mimosa NearPoint™ will deliver support for Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 beginning November 30, 2009. As a Microsoft Technology Adoption Program (TAP) member and Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, Mimosa will leverage its NearPoint for Exchange 2010 solution to establish an organizational archive that complements Exchange 2010 personal archive functionality for the long-term storage and retention management of email and historical PST content without any impact to the production email environment.

"Email is a critical business application for our campus," said Michael Bowden, systems engineer, Bowdoin College. "As a result this can place a strain on our IT infrastructure due to exploding data growth, shrinking backup windows and the need to store data long-term for compliance purposes. Mimosa delivers an integrated archive solution that was built from day one to support Microsoft Exchange. As we plan our Exchange 2010 migration we know Mimosa will be there to make this a seamless transition."

Long-term email archiving continues to be a critical business requirement as email volumes grow, and companies keep email as critical business records, then dispose of these according to their records management policies. Additionally, legal workflow to manage the long-term preservation and review of responsive content is also driving the need for an organizational archive. Corporations have a requirement to retain information for regulatory compliance and need a robust organizational archive that goes well beyond the personal archive to provide historical storage, retention adherence and eDiscovery workflow to ensure compliance.

Alternatively, companies that leverage Mimosa NearPoint, with its support for Exchange 2010, will benefit from the following advantages:

--  A comprehensive organizational archive that provides single-instance
    storage, retention and eDiscovery across Exchange, File System, and
    SharePoint content
--  An integrated application set to manage workloads across the
    information lifecycle including retention and classification of business
    records, employee supervision for data loss prevention, and electronic
    discovery to manage in-place legal holds
--  Offline access to archived content through the NearPoint archive cache
--  Storage of archived content on compliance devices such as EMC Centera,
    NetApp SnapLock and Hitachi HCAP

"As an active Microsoft TAP partner, Mimosa was able to provide Microsoft feedback on the archiving features included in Exchange 2010 and with NearPoint, has established an organizational record archive that complements Exchange 2010 archive functionality for long-term retention," said T.M. Ravi, CEO, Mimosa Systems. "We have architected a solution that leverages the advanced features being delivered with Exchange 2010 for companies that wish to deploy a long-term archive for email, file system, and SharePoint data."
