E-mail archiving is now the law of the land. Sarbanes-Oxley and other regulations require archiving of your e-mail and other critical files. Archiving means that the information is placed on permanent media.

OptiVault is a new archival appliance that backs up and quickly recovers all emails that are sent, received or deleted through Microsoft Exchange, including attachments. It operates unobtrusively in the background of your Exchange server, reliably backing up all emails on optical media.

OptiVault is designed for use in a wide range of environments that are already utilizing a variety of primary backup methods such as tape or RAID. It interfaces to your server(s) through a single high-speed USB 2.0 port. An optional Rack Mount Kit allows installation in a standard 19” 4U configuration. The lockable front panel door keeps media and the robotics safe and secure.

Using the included software from EMC Dantz, emails and other critical files are automatically archived on optical media according to customizable scripts. Each disc is also printed with serialization — an exclusive feature of OptiVault — for fast and easy cataloging and retrieval.

With a capacity of up to 117 GB (234 GB compressed) per backup set, OptiVault has more than enough room for every email plus attachments generated by hundreds of typical users per month. You can archive and backup emails and other important files not only from the server, but also from networked client computers running Windows, Mac OS, Linux, Solaris and Netware.

Application Note:

So you are being dragged kicking and screaming to archive your e-mails and data. What can you do that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg? Well, there are some new systems available that make it real easy to get the job done as well as being economical. The Archival appliance backs up and quickly recovers all e-mails that are sent, received or deleted through Microsoft Exchange, including attachments. It operates unobtrusively in the background of your Exchange server, reliably backing up all emails on optical media. The discs can be kept save and then recovered easily when needed.

The system writes to DVD discs and then prints a label on the disc so you can find it. When you need to recover emails from any mailbox for any date range the system finds them on the appropriate backup discs and restores them automatically.

Because it uses non-erasable, non-rewritable media that can be stored off-site, the system provides true WORM (Write Once Read Many) compliance. This is a critical specification for publicly-held corporations, healthcare, brokerage and financial institutions and others who must meet the strict email, data and document retention requirements of Sarbanes-Oxley, SEC 17-a, HIPAA and a host of other government regulations.

WORM technology is also highly desirable for any organization that needs to be able to quickly and reliably retrieve data and files of all types without overburdening primary storage devices or media. Experts agree that optical media is the most rugged and reliable backup media available. Its archival life is measured in decades — not just years.
