We are happy to offer our SharePoint archiving solution for free to the SharePoint community because we know that administrators are struggling to optimize the performance of their content database
Waltham, MA (PRWEB) July 29, 2009
Metalogix Software, a leading provider of productivity solutions for Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Exchange, today announced that it is offering Metalogix Archiving Express for SharePoint, the most powerful and feature-rich SharePoint Archiving solution available, for free. Metalogix Archiving Express for SharePoint supports even the most complex compliance retention policies while also dramatically improving SharePoint system performance and reducing overall backup and restore time by 50%.
SharePoint administrators can download the new freeware solution from: http://www.Metalogix.net/free-tools/sharepoint-archiving-express.
"Users of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server know that performance can slow dramatically as content databases grow," said David Ferris, president and senior analyst, Ferris Research. "Metalogix is helping to fix this problem by offering a free archiving solution that features single-instance storage and federated search. It will make backups and restores easier for administrators while helping them to comply with retention policies and regulations."
Metalogix Archiving Express for SharePoint is a full-featured, fourth-generation archiving solution available free of charge. The free tool automates enforcement of retention policies for all SharePoint content. By reducing the SharePoint production database, it also improves system performance while giving online access to archived documents directly from within the SharePoint application. With features to automate disaster recovery and shorten backup times dramatically for the SharePoint environment, Metalogix Archiving Express for SharePoint also provides search, retention and disposition capabilities to help companies execute internal policies and meet Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) requirements.
Key product benefits include:
- Supports archiving retention policies for all SharePoint content - Archived content is classified by metadata attribute, file size, or modification date, so even the most granular of retention policies will be executed
- Reduces archiving backup time and automated storage lifecycle management - Backup volumes are reduced by removing duplicate data through the Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM) engine. This reduces backup and restore times by up to 50%. Metalogix Archiving Express for SharePoint also cuts bloated portal sizes by up to 80% and automatically offloads less active documents to less expensive storage.
- Automatic disaster recovery - Archived documents are fully accessible by end users, just like non-archived documents, and the activities are transparent to users.
- Searches everywhere for everything with a single view - Next-generation search finds information archives from anywhere in the SharePoint environment. Users of other Metalogix archiving solutions (Exchange or Files) can search for email, files, and/or SharePoint from a single view.
"We are happy to offer our SharePoint archiving solution for free to the SharePoint community because we know that administrators are struggling to optimize the performance of their content database," said Chris Risley, CEO, Metalogix. "We are committed to the SharePoint community and this free product addresses a key concern we have been increasingly hearing from our SharePoint admin customers. Through active feedback from our freeware users, we will continue to enhance our product and deliver the archiving solution that organizations need today and in the future as SharePoint archives continue to grow exponentially."
