Storage specialist EMC has announced solutions to help mid-sized IT organisations drive down cost and increase the productivity of Microsoft Exchange e-mail servers.
The new EMC Express Solution for E-Mail is the first in a series of EMC Express Solutions, which include packaged hardware, software and services that target the business needs of small to medium-sized companies.
Using automated policy management software, the EMC Express Solution for E-Mail helps organisations to consolidate and manage years of e-mail messages on a single networked storage system.
EMC claims that by cost-effectively expanding mailbox limits, end-user productivity improves while Microsoft Exchange Server storage costs are reduced by up to 30%.
The solution includes EMC storage boxes and drives, archiving and compression, data replication and back-up software, and an Exchange acceleration solution.
"The EMC Express Solution for E-mail helps mid-sized organisations maximise the benefits of Microsoft Exchange Server by enabling the highest levels of availability and protection," said Kim Akers, senior director in the Exchange Server Marketing at Microsoft.
"Midsized organisations with budget limitations can now purchase ready-made solutions from EMC with built in backup and recovery as well as a limitless mailbox."
Nancy Hurley, analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group, added, “This kind of bundled solution is exactly what the mid-market needs to address the pain points associated with managing e-mail."
