Email Archiving Systems Need Business Continuity Support

When deploying an email archiving system, you should carefully consider your business continuity needs.

Email archiving systems are deployed for various reasons, notably:

  • Reducing mail stored on the server
  • Removing mail stored on clients
  • Complying with regulations

In the event a site disaster renders the archival system unusable, email cannot be properly archived. During litigation, this email can be requested even if it was not archived. Failure to produce the email can result in steep fines along with other punishments. As a result, ensuring continuous availability of the email and archival systems is important.

Most enterprise vendors like Mimosa Systems, Zantaz, and EMC improve business continuity by using storage-based replication. Customers and vendors should ensure their systems provide an acceptable level of resiliency.
