Mimosa Systems NearPoint Archiving Solution Named 2009 Community Choice Award Winner by SQL Server Magazine

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - November 23, 2009) - Mimosa Systems, the leader in next-generation email archiving, file archiving, and SharePoint archiving solutions, today announced that its Mimosa NearPoint™ for SharePoint archiving solution was named as a bronze medal winner of the "2009 Community Choice Awards" in the Editor's Best SharePoint product category by Penton Media's SQL Server Magazine.

"The 2009 Community Choice Awards had a record number of entries this year. Thousands of products were nominated by our audience of IT professionals. Peer-to-peer product and service recognition is the ultimate goal that all market players have, but it can be difficult to achieve," said Michele Crockett, editorial strategy director.

"Our Windows IT Pro and SQL Server Magazine communities even the playing field by calling out their favorite products based on performance and service. We counted only those votes accompanied by a valid and unique email address, thereby preventing multiple entries per person. Our winners have earned a unique honor to stand out among their peers as winners of our Community Choice Awards."
