Cloud-based email archiving firm, Mimecast, has formed a global alliance with Australian software firm, Nuix.
This technology integration means Mimecast can now migrate quickly large volumes of user data from an enterprise’s legacy archive to Mimecast’s Cloud platform, according to a company statement.
A faster archive migration speeds up the decommissioning of end-of-life archiving solutions, alleviates ongoing hardware and software costs, and helps customers overcome in-house scalability and performance challenges.
The partnership optimises the volume of data available, and the speed at which it can be produced for critical eDiscovery and end-user productivity and mobile access requirements.
Nuix global head of intelligent migration, Rocco Seyboth, said the vast majority of new archive implementations were in the Cloud.
"But many organisations still used migration technology that was designed years ago to move data from one on-premises system to another,” he said.
“Enterprises are choosing Mimecast because of their next-generation approach to email storage management, eDiscovery and compliance.
"We are excited to partner with Mimecast so their customers can benefit from Nuix’s migration technology, designed specifically for the Cloud.”
Mimecast Australian country manager, Nick Lennon, said the introduction of new Australian privacy legislation earlier this year had spurred many Australian companies to looking for local data management solutions.
“Mimecast is pleased to have recently become an Australian provider of a full suite of data management services, including email filtering, antivirus, archiving, continuity, file archiving, governance, messaging security and more – all hosted in the Cloud," he said.
“Companies doing business in Australia need to preserve the ‘corporate memory’ of their archived data – and the potential insights which it holds – without burdening their systems performance.
"It’s only natural that we partner with Nuix, the leader in rapid archive migration. Doing so ensures that our customers can gain the performance, scalability and multi-device accessibility of the Mimecast platform, while minimising the risks of corporate amnesia through data loss or downtime.”
