Email Archiving…or “It’s your neck”

Howdy folks…long time no talk.  The end of April was challenging to say the least, and I’ve only fully recovered from it now…except for the cuts and bruises, those will heal over time. 🙂

One of the things I’ve been interested in for awhile and that I’m trying to pass on to my clients is Email Archiving.  Now I’m sure you’re saying to yourself, “but we already backup our emails”…and that’s likely true.  There is a significant difference between the two, and it’s a common misunderstanding, so with Barracuda‘s help, let me show you.

What?  You don’t want to read a whitepaper?  Ok let me sum that up for you.  Archiving is for long-term, indexable and searchable retention…and Backup is taking a snapshot of what you have at a particular point in time, and being able to restore with that backup.   That is looking at it in a simple way, but it’s very true.

Now I mentioned the fine folks at Barracuda…while you may remember them for their fantastic security & content control products, Email Archiving is an area where they excel in.  Their standard device, the Message Archiver, provides several tools to assist the user in maintaining their email archive…even doing the importing itself, giving you time to get that extra cup of coffee or chat with your office buddies about how the Dodgers are going to have a better season.

Make sure you jump over here to their online demo of the product.  Take a look, something like this IS worth your time to invest. 🙂

    • Bob, thank you for the comment! While I try to never pitch one particular manufacturer based on name alone, this product from Barracuda does have a lot of merit. What solution from Dell are you using? 🙂
