New Mirapoint Message Server 7000 Provides Cloud Computing Convenience, In-House Data Security

New Messaging Appliance Offers 99.999% Uptime, Lowest TCO

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - March 8, 2010) - Today's release of the Message Server 7000 puts more power under the hood of Mirapoint's leading high-performance email appliance. With the latest Intel hardware architecture and lower energy requirements than server-based solutions, the Mirapoint Message Server 7000 provides convenience and reliability to both cloud providers and corporate enterprises.

"The Message Server 7000 offers bulletproof reliability at the marketplace's lowest TCO. This is ideal for both the cloud-computing providers and for enterprises that require crucial corporate data to reside inside their own firewalls," said Jeff Witous, CEO of Mirapoint.

Whether the Message Server 7000 is deployed within a cloud or a corporate firewall, users appreciate the ability to access their email from any desktop or mobile Web browser, while administrators appreciate the appliance's high reliability and low Total Cost of Ownership.

"One of the main reasons I like Mirapoint is that you install it and it runs on its own. The system stays up and running; three months will go by without incident," said Chris Smith, Director of Systems Administration for the Office of Information Technology Services at Widener University, a three-year Message Server user.

The Mirapoint family of messaging appliances, which includes RazorSafe and RazorGate, allows customers to integrate messaging with secure archiving and anti-spam/anti-virus protection. Now available, the Message Server 7000 runs the proven MOS 4.1.9, which is also supported by the Message Server 6000 series.

Features of the Message Server 7000

The Message Server 7000 hardware includes quad-core Xeon processors and a high-performance RAID controller of up to 6 Gbs. Certain models include up to 900 GB of built-in storage with hot-plug, high-performance SAS drives, and an integrated LCD and Remote Access Controller (RAC) for facilitating operational maintenance and diagnostics.
