With the exploding growth of email both in volume and size of messages, IT Departments are under pressure to deliver service to their users while maintaining a reasonable cost structure and providing access to the messages for legal purposes.

Our customers use our solution MailMeter  to significantly reduce email storage costs while providing a greater level of service to legal, HR, compliance, business managers, and end users. Email archiving has proven to be very beneficial.

On average our customer’s see storage savings of 80% and other savings they achieve include;email archiving

  • Reduction in back up times,
  • Elimination of PST files,
  • Improved reliability and performance of their MS Exchange servers.
  • Disaster Recovery is faster – Archive is available even if the email server is down. The email server can be recovered immediately with empty mailboxes and users can use archive to search for historical data.
  • More control of your total email storage costs and ability to manage it for future growth at a lower cost per message.
