LiveOffice Offers Free Email Archiving for Antarctica

Leading Cloud Archiving Provider Extends Services to Seventh Continent

MCMURDO STATION, ANTARCTICA--(Marketwire - April 1, 2011) - LiveOffice, the number-one global provider of cloud-based email archiving, email compliance, email discovery and email continuity solutions for North America, South America, Europe, Africa and Asia, today announced that it is offering free archiving services to the emerging business community of Antarctica. With this landmark offering, LiveOffice can claim that it is the only archiving solution serving all seven continents.

While the United States and Western Europe lead the world in the adoption of cloud-based archiving, emerging markets like Antarctica have the potential to outpace the growth rates of these traditional regional powers. While there are only a handful of scientific bases and the "permanent" population of scientists number only a few thousand, Antarctica is unquestionably the fifth largest continent in the world in terms of land mass. And with mass comes opportunity.

According to Norwegian demographer Lirpa Sloof, "We are seeing the emergence of cities, townships and villages across the continent." According to some industry insiders, there are several new metropolitan developments underway as Antarctica is expected to surpass Abu Dhabi over the next 10-15 years in terms of capital investment.

To fill this gap, LiveOffice is working with the Antarctican embassy to become the exclusive archiving provider for this burgeoning region. Nick Mehta, CEO of LiveOffice, said, "Everyone talks about China as the next world superpower, but Antarctica is the real sleeping giant and is poised for significant market growth."

In addition to our traditional archiving services, LiveOffice is offering the following cloud-based services to better serve this unique market:

  • E-Discovery: LiveOffice's Discovery Archive has been enhanced to endure the scrutiny of even the toughest court mandates in a cost-effective manner whether the litigation stems from research disputes over intellectual property or civil torts involving flightless water fowl.
  • Compliance: LiveOffice archiving solutions can help organizations meet Antarctica's complex regulatory requirements, including meeting government standards of the Antarctic Privacy and Ice Flow Forum (1943), the Indigenous Peoples and Polar Bear Act (2003) and the Financial Decency Act of Antarctica (1987).
  • Mailbox Management: For time-strapped Antarcticans, LiveOffice allows users to access their archives from their laptops, smartphones, seaplanes and Internet-enabled Yak sleds.
