Mimosa Systems Rolls Out Industry's Most Flexible Disaster Recovery Solution for Microsoft Exchange Environments
One Click Exchange Recovery Breaks Barriers to Fast and Comprehensive Restoration
of Mission Critical Email
SANTA CLARA , Calif. - December 11, 2007 - Mimosa Systems(TM), a leader in live content archiving solutions, today announced the Mimosa NearPoint(TM) Disaster Recovery Option, providing automated disaster recovery for Microsoft Exchange environments to maintain application consistency, integrity and uptime. Using the Disaster Recovery module, enterprise users have the option of recovering Exchange services to a local or remote Exchange Server for rapid recovery in minutes, enabling immediate user access to Exchange mailboxes and archive message data in the event of a disaster.
Email has quickly become the mission-critical application for today's businesses. The cost of email downtime can be catastrophic to an enterprise. A recent survey by Osterman Research found that corporate email systems were down between 69 and 300 minutes per month. The cost of email downtime is difficult to quantify for most organizations, but 40 percent of users surveyed estimated that outages would cost up to $50 million, 27 percent said up to $100 million and 20 percent said up to $500 million annually.
Dot Foods, based in Mt. Sterling, Ill., is one of the United States' first food redistributors, linking industry manufacturers, distributors, brokers and buying groups. Dot Foods offers 57,000 dry, frozen and refrigerated products, plus equipment and supplies, to local distributors in all 50 states. "With eight divisions across the U.S. our email storage requirements are doubling year over year, and this places a large burden on our Exchange environment," said Eric Ellerman, network manager, Dot Foods. "To keep pace with this demand, it was important for us to have an information management solution to unify Exchange recovery, archiving and storage optimization into a single easy to use solution. Mimosa has met all our requirements with a "one click" solution to archive, manage and recover critical Exchange information for business continuity."
