One of the surest of sure things in the storage industry right now is the potential for email archiving solutions. There are literally dozens of products out there, with prices and functionality for pretty much any application. And the growing demand for letigation hold and search has made this an essential technology for any organization – just ask the President!.
So how will you make your choice? I previously talked about the essential differentiators, and now I’ve refined these into a more complete list I’m calling “The Eleven Essential Elements of Email Archiving”. I capitalize this because it is the basis for much of my recent writing and speaking: I just wrapped up an article for Storage magazine on the subject, to be published next month, and spoke on the topic at Storage Decisions in Chicago.
If you missed the show last week (or really really liked it!) and can’t wait for the magazine, may I suggest tuning in tomorrow for TechTarget’s Email and File Archiving Virtual Seminar? You can catch my session at 1:30 Eastern, with a live Q&A session following. Or you can tune in at 9 AM for the whole day-long extravaganza, featuring sessions from other good folks from Contoural and elsewhere.
