StorageTek has announced that it is broadening the StorageTek Email Xcelerator series of solutions with the addition of an email archiving software from IXOS, a provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions. The IXOS software is intended to extend StorageTek's capability to offer a more fully scalable line of email archiving solutions and allows StorageTek to satisfy a broader range of customer email scenarios.
Through its Email Xcelerator Series, StorageTek expects to help companies to better manage the email lifecycle by automatically migrating data to less expensive media and by providing additional tools that support compliance and audit requirements. These solutions, which are designed to fit into an existing IT infrastructure, integrate into Microsoft Exchange or Lotus Notes environments while improving email data protection, automating manual processes, and easing the burden on IT staffs.
StorageTek supports its Email Xcelerator solutions through its Global Services organization. This new suite of solutions - the StorageTek Email ArchiveMaster, Email ArchiveMaster with search and retrieve capability, and Email AuditMaster - will address three management issues related to email: archive management; knowledge management; and compliance management.
