Iron Mountain NearPoint and NetApp Joint Solution: An Introduction to e-Mail Archiving, Disaster Recovery, and Cost-Effective Storage Using Iron Mountain NearPoint
All organizations today deal with the challenge of managing growing volumes of e-mail. Between the four year periods from 2008 to 2012 the average number of messages a typical corporate user receives in a day is expected to grow from 126 messages to 233 messages, an increase of 85%. Correspondingly, the average size of these messages is also increasing. Many of these are either business records or valuable corporate knowledge that must be retained for a certain period of time. Keeping a large volume of e-mail leads to higher storage costs and headaches for IT staff in the form of longer backup windows and complex disaster recovery.
