Addison Lee archives emails on Mimosa’s system

Slashes storage space from 75GB to 5GB

By CBR Staff Writer

Minicab and courier company Addison Lee has been able to reduce the burden on its storage system by standardising on Mimosa Systems’ email archiving platform NearPoint.

With Mimosa NearPoint, Addison is able to maintain an up-to-date copy of Microsoft Exchange data, while the archived items appear in a separate folder in the same Outlook format.

Mimosa says that Addison could reduce its email backup windows from 12 hours to one, and cut the amount of storage needed for its Microsoft Exchange mailboxes from 75GB to 5GB, even without installing any additional hardware or software. This has saved the courier company up to £50,000.

Brian Bennett, UK managing director for Mimosa Systems, said: “NearPoint works using transaction log-shipping which maintains an up-to-date copy of all Addison Lee’s data — messages, calendar items, tasks, and contacts — without impacting on the performance of the Exchange Server.”

Mimosa NearPoint provides legal search workflow, mailbox and message recovery, disaster recovery, email, instant message and file archiving, and self-service search and access functionalities. Its rivals in the archiving market include Symantec’s Enterprise Vault and CA’s Message Manager.

Mimosa, which claims to have 700 customers and 150,000 users worldwide, has been recognised as one of the fastest-growing companies in email archiving by Gartner. It works in partnership with Microsoft, Dell, Hitachi Data Systems, NetApp and HP.
