Mimosa Systems™, a leader in unified information management solutions for enterprise content, today announced that TNCI, a leading national provider of voice and data telecommunications solutions, has deployed the Mimosa NearPoint™ for Microsoft® Exchange Server software to archive and protect its Microsoft Exchange email environment.

NearPoint's next-generation email archiving and information management capabilities have enabled TNCI to centralize nearly 100 GB of Microsoft Exchange email data that was previously dispersed across servers, desktops and laptops into a central, protected live archive which can be easily searched by users using NearPoint's Self-Service Access™ email search from within their own Outlook or Outlook Web Access accounts.

TNCI is a leading provider of voice and data solutions. The company offers a complete portfolio of telecommunications products including local and long distance service, audio/web conferencing, dedicated IP, integrated voice and data services, private line, frame relay, and enhanced network solutions.

"Because email is central to the majority of our business operations, including our mission-critical and message-intensive customer support team, we needed a rock-solid solution that would allow employees to maintain quick access to all of their email messages, while eliminating any risk of lost email or corrupted mailboxes," said Michael DiBenedetto, network administrator, TNCI. "Mimosa NearPoint provided me with a solution to manage my .PST file problems while delivering powerful email archiving that does not require any agent software on the Exchange Server. Now, email files are centrally managed and protected in the NearPoint archive and employees have a quick and easy way to search for email messages."

Prior to deploying the Mimosa NearPoint software, the company imposed strict 150 MB mailbox quotas for its employees as a way to manage the overall Exchange messaging database. Because TNCI employees rely on their email for important business communications, including business agreements, letters of authorization and quotes, many began to retain their email data in unprotected Personal Store (.PST) files located on their laptops.

After reviewing more than half-a-dozen email archiving solutions, TNCI selected Mimosa NearPoint as the single solution that could integrate .PST files into a central archive, improve overall Exchange recovery and arm end users with an intuitive, self-service interface for fingertip access to historical email information.

"Some employees have even been saving their email since 1998," said DiBenedetto. "Without any laptop data protection in place, I was very concerned that .PST files with valuable data could easily be lost or stolen."

TNCI chose Mimosa NearPoint because it offered the following key benefits:

  • Live email archiving: NearPoint captures 100 percent of TNCI's Exchange information (including email, calendar items and contacts) for real-time archival with no impact on their production Exchange environment and with no agents on their Exchange Server.
  • .PST file elimination: The NearPoint PST Archive Option safeguarded TNCI's historic email information by uploading email files directly into the NearPoint archive where they can be centrally managed and searched for email discovery.
  • Self-service email access: Using NearPoint, TNCI users have instant access to email that has been protected, archived and extended via a standard Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Web Access user interface. Even complex search and discovery of "who", "what", "when" and "where" in every mailbox including senders and recipients can be performed with ease.
  • Exchange data protection and disaster recovery: NearPoint supports rapid recovery of Exchange data at all levels including automated disaster recovery, full database recovery, mailbox recovery and individual message restores.

"With Mimosa NearPoint, I now have multiple levels of Exchange recovery," added DiBenedetto. "I can restore a full storage group, database or mailbox with just one click. In addition, recovery of emails has dropped from a day or more, to minutes. But, the big surprise was NearPoint's true Exchange disaster recovery capability. Instead of having to purchase multiple products for Exchange archiving, data protection and disaster recovery, NearPoint is the single solution that can do it all."
