City of Manassas Eliminates Need for PST Files, Improves Capacity With the Help of C2C's ArchiveOne Solution

WESTBOROUGH, MA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2011) - C2C, a leading provider of email, file and messaging management solutions, today announced that the City of Manassas, Virginia has implemented its ArchiveOne® solution to minimize the pain associated with PST files while helping to improve the capacity of its Exchange servers.

C2C's ArchiveOne solution met the archiving, retention and eDiscovery needs of the City of Manassas, enabling it to reduce the footprint for its email data, minimize backup and restore times, and lessen the costs associated with email management. By providing full PST management -- from discovering PST files to analysis of the data held in them, migration directly to the archive and their elimination -- the City of Manassas was able to rid itself of the pain of managing PSTs altogether.

"ArchiveOne archives email from mailboxes, PST files and public folders automatically and invisibly based on criteria that I select," said Randy Buzzard, City of Manassas IT Manager. "It is designed to meet my needs for email management, eDiscovery and retention while keeping the size of our mailboxes under control. Users still have complete access to their archived email while I've gained better efficiency and improved capacity of our Exchange servers."

Buzzard said he chose the C2C solution based on the criteria of cost, ease of use, ease of installation and the fact that it didn't require SQL. The ArchiveOne suite selected included solutions for compliance, policy enforcement and elimination of PST files.

"The City of Manassas needed a comprehensive email archiving solution that would help with capacity and minimize the pain associated with managing PST files," said Dave Hunt, CEO of C2C. "By eliminating PST files altogether, we help reduce the server space needed for mailboxes while keeping the transition completely transparent to the City's 400 employees. Providing comprehensive retention management and eDiscovery, ArchiveOne allows the City of Manassas to be in full control of its data at all times."

ArchiveOne has the ability to discover an email based on more than 100 metadata characteristics and has a range of intelligent actions that can be taken after identifying the email. ArchiveOne's strengths include pre-archive scanning, post-archive indexing and search, balancing of archiving, retention management and eDiscovery, ease of installation and operation with no use of an SQL server, advanced PST discovery and management, web-enabled access to archived email from anywhere, portable repositories and pluggable storage managers. Customers of C2C range from medium-sized businesses up to Fortune 1000 companies with 60,000 mailboxes managed.
