Control your file storage while reducing backup times
MailMeter Storage Manager helps your organization to overcome problems associated with large mail and file server storage such as personal archives (PST/NSF), quotas and long backup times.
Reduce your total cost of ownership (TCO)
You can reduce your organization’s total cost of ownership by working smarter. Waterford Technologies’ solutions enable you to reduce your email and file storage by up to 80% and your backup times by up to 70%.
By moving old data from expensive to cheaper storage (ILM), you can achieve dramatic savings. We can also help you to extend the lifespan of your current email and file storage hardware.
Through working smarter, with our support, you will notice a huge reduction in your organization’s total cost of ownership.
Get your PST/NSF files under control
Before MailMeter, when users wanted to keep more email and attachments than their mailbox quota allowed, they used personal archives (PST or NSF files), often stored on network drives, making the backup process even longer.
Personal archive files are dangerous to use and are difficult to manage. As corporate business records, they may not be on the corporate file server, on network drives and possibly not on company premises at all. Also, personal archives can easily get corrupted and become unusable. Users may delete them by accident or take them when they leave the company, taking important business records with them.
Once a personal archive file is created and the original email is deleted from the company’s server, it is impossible to access these email assets for legal cases, record retention, compliance audits, HR investigations or any business reason that may require the email content (contracts, approvals, decision trails, timestamp/proof of email being sent).
MailMeter eliminates the need for user quotas and the need to create and manage PST/NSF files through an individual search interface to the archive (browser or Outlook Add-In).
The net effect of archiving email is that end users will have virtually unlimited space to store their email and attachments.
Reduce backup and restore times
Backup costs and restore times are directly correlated to the amount of email kept in the email store. Additional costs with backups include the amount of expensive media that is consumed, administration of the media collections, the equipment to run the backups, offsite storage space for disaster recovery, and the time it takes to restore backup media. Also, media can become corrupted and unusable.
With MailMeter, you can reduce the size of the email store in your file database, resulting in immediate cost savings and improved performance. If the email server crashes, nothing is more important than getting it restored and running again. With a smaller operating mail store, this time is reduced significantly.
Reduce your primary data storage by up to 80%
MailMeter storage management capabilities provide a real world reduction of your primary email and file storage in your organization by up to 80%. It provides a safe, secure, and easy to deploy method to shrink the sizes of mailboxes overnight. If you face large mail storage issues such as quotas, growing PST/NSF files and lengthy backup times, MailMeter Storage Manager software provides the instant solution you need. MailMeter Storage Manager reduces your email storage requirements dramatically by ‘stubbing’ attachments (removing them from messages and replacing them with shortcuts) without sacrificing your ability to access them.
Email servers use expensive storage to provide high speed access to your organization’s email lifeline. Backups take forever (or fail) when the server is overstuffed and disorganized. Disaster recovery may be impossible.
MailMeter‘s archiving architecture takes the pressure off your servers, making your storage more efficient than ever. You will save costs in storage and backup times; improve the reliability and performance of your email server; improve the productivity of your users, and reduce the overall costs of management.
