AXS-One Announces Integration with IBM System Storage DR550, Offering Highly Efficient Archival and Retrieval with Price Performance : Combined Offering Unveiled at Lotusphere 2007

  • 24 January, 2007 08:59

<p>AXS-One Pty Ltd, a leading provider of high performance records compliance management solutions (RCM), today announced that the AXS-One Compliance Platform™, the single, scalable archiving and electronic records management software platform for policy-based management of disparate electronic records, will fully support the IBM System Storage DR550 and IBM System Storage DR550 Express.</p>
<p>The IBM DR550 product suite is designed to help businesses meet the growing challenge of managing exponentially increasing volumes of corporate records to address regulatory compliance and discovery requirements, while managing costs through greater operational efficiency. This combined solution, which is being launched at Lotusphere 2007 in Orlando, Florida, enables corporate users to implement a multi-dimensional strategy for archival, storage and retrieval with true technology innovation and market-leading price performance across all electronic record types, including in IBM’s Lotus Notes/Domino arena.</p>
<p>AXS-One’s innovation in the Lotus Domino archiving market is well documented, with acknowledgement from leading IT analysts and industry awards including the Lotus Advisor Editor’s Choice Award for both 2005 and 2006. The AXS-One Compliance Platform contains a fully integrated solution that has been optimised for the Lotus Domino environment to significantly reduce Notes infrastructure costs as well as address requirements for regulatory compliance, corporate governance, litigation support and legal discovery within the same platform.</p>
<p>“Combining the AXS-One Compliance Platform with the IBM DR550 gives us a unique opportunity to build on our momentum in the Records Compliance Management market and offer companies an unprecedented level of innovation and efficiency in archival and retrieval functionality,” said David Thompson, managing director of AXS-One Pty Ltd. ”This combination enables enterprises to scale and manage global installations with a high level of flexibility, while maintaining strict controls on price performance. We believe this combined solution will be seen within both IT departments and the boardroom as an invaluable asset for optimal archiving and as a solution to address the growing demand for electronic records management and litigation support.”</p>
<p>Research shows that organisations will archive over 7,000 petabytes of email in the next four years, which is a tremendous amount of capacity that needs to be managed for legal discovery, compliance and records retention purposes.</p>
<p>Working together, AXS-One and IBM have taken full advantage of the strengths of both products to provide differentiated value to both the core business line and the IT department. The combined solution is designed to address data retention and management regulations and to support litigation requirements, which require preservation and timely and accurate production of relevant “electronically stored information". For IT managers, the solution is designed to deliver outstanding price performance, provide flexible and extensible retention policies, integrate Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) capabilities with tiered storage, and provide affordable disaster recovery and backup configurations.</p>
<p>“The archiving market is increasingly important to our customers as they address the challenges of cost-effective, long-term retention of information,” said Cindy Grossman, IBM Vice President of System Storage. "With AXS-One, we can deliver leading archiving technology and solutions for email including Lotus Notes, instant messages, text messages and other record types that meet customer requirements today and are flexible for the requirements of the future. Our partnership with AXS-One will enable us to address the archiving needs and scale of our enterprise and SMB customers worldwide.”</p>
<p>The combined solution delivers on all four key touch-points in ILM. This threshold is reached by combining the AXS-One archive’s data lifecycle management, integrated retention management and policy-based archive management with the IBM DR550’s policy-based, non-mutable tiered storage for long term retention and compliance, managed backup and media migration to support retention periods beyond the life of the information.</p>
<p>The efficiency offered by the integrated offering also extends to Disaster Recovery and High Availability. The solution can be configured to write to two archives – a primary location and a secondary site for the purpose of disaster recovery. A key benefit of writing to two archives is that in the event of an outage there is a near immediate return to normal operations.</p>
<p>In addition to the technology benefits, the combined solution offers new opportunities for cost savings as a result of AXS-One’s Single Instance Storage capabilities and IBM’s realisation of “just-in-case” scenarios, where tiered storage with WORM tape media minimises long-term cost. As a result, the combined solution reaches new heights to meet requirements spelled out in Service Level Agreements (SLAs). Moreover, the solution offers unique investment protection: the AXS-One solution has independent access to archived data, ensuring its long-term viability.
