GridBank for Exchange provides a comprehensive email archiving solution, enabling high availability access to data assets, regulatory compliance, and reduced infrastructure and storage management costs
In today's dynamic business environment, innovation and competitive advantage are driven by data and information. Organizations empowered to readily access their corporate knowledge in a timely manner are more able to adapt quickly and efficiently to internal and external challenges, enabling them to keep one step ahead of their rivals. GridBank for Exchange brings continuous availability of business critical data to end users through next generation object storage technology, allowing high performance, globally distributed on demand data access.
In recent years, governmental oversight and regulatory requirements related to data retention and disposal have become increasingly stringent. Legal minimum and maximum email retention periods are mandated by seemingly never-ending streams of rules and regulations. Additionally, organizations facing litigation proceedings have an obligation to identify, discover, collect and preserve all relevant emails and related attachments. GridBank for Exchange provides a comprehensive retention and disposal policy management engine, powerful search and discovery tools and fully granular legal hold to protect and preserve the integrity of critical data.
The rate of email data growth is increasing exponentially and this is having a negative impact on Exchange Server performance. Despite recent improvements in the capacity of primary mailboxes, over time inboxes become overloaded and are either archived to PST files, effectively removing them from centralized IT control, or are kept on the Exchange Server leading to performance implications and increased risk of outages. GridBank for Exchange enables automated migration of data to secondary storage, reducing the load on the Exchange Server, while retaining the data assets under corporate IT management.
As data volumes grow ceaselessly, similarly, the costs of storing and managing these information assets continue to increase. While storage cost per GB trends downwards, the level of data volume growth is outpacing the offsetting costs, leading to information management overheads that need to be contained. Meanwhile, regulations mandate longer retention periods and backup windows keep stretching. GridBank for Exchange automates information management, reducing overheads and migrating infrequently accessed data to more cost effective tiered storage and reducing total cost of ownership.
