Imation, a worldwide supplier of removable data storage media, has announced that its ComplianceVault Archiving Appliance is available to the local market. ComplianceVault Archiving Appliance is an integrated all-in-one hardware and software e-mail archiving appliance.
According to Imation SA sales manager, Juan David Fajardo, ComplianceVault Archiving Appliance indexes and archives all of a company's e-mail from Mircrosoft Exchange, Lotus Notes or virtually any IMAP/POP3-based e-mail system on a continuous basis, from a virtually unlimited number of mailboxes. "A simple but powerful user interface allows for extensive search and audit capabilities."

"Unlike other solutions requiring ongoing per-user licence fees and software maintenance costs, the Imation ComplianceVault solution features a low, one-time investment. It offers the hard disk drive capacity ranges, tape format choices, and price points that perfectly fit the needs of small and midsize businesses - whether one is looking for an e-mail archiving solution for regulatory compliance, legal discovery (e-discovery), or simply good business practices," he explains.
The Imation solution includes Intel server platform with embedded Intradyn ComplianceVault software. Furthermore, it offers a choice of hard disk drive capacities (320 GB, 500 GB, 800 GB, or 1TB capacity options) combined with multiple tape autoloader options from Exabyte (VXA-2, VXA-320, LTO-2, or LTO-3).
Fajardo says e-mail archiving is being rapidly adopted in organisations of all sizes for regulatory compliance, legal discovery and good business practices, "E-mail messages are not just conversations, they are business records that must be managed accordingly."
The ComplianceVault Appliance also allows for rapid searching of e-mail to improve responsiveness to litigation discovery requests.
"Most small to midsized companies have not yet been able to comply with regulations for e-mail retention, whether in SEC-regulated environments or otherwise. The reason is two-fold - complexity and high cost. Previous solutions for e-mail archiving, designed for large enterprises are difficult for small businesses to implement because they require specialised IT expertise and go well beyond modest IT budgets," he concludes.
ComplianceVault Appliance is available immediately and is being distributed through Channel Data, Comztek and Storgate.
