  • Ten considerations for email archiving - Part 2
    searches today they may be very specific about what they re looking for or might want a more iterative process such as nesting searches within searches until a set of messages is isolated Try out the search function with the legal team to see if it works in ways they might want to use it Our legal team is hooked on ediscovery comments one administrator at a well known business who asked to remain anonymous They are making many more queries and becoming better at asking more refined questions as they become familiar with the email archive s capabilities This helps to protect the company and reduce ediscovery costs Consider the technicalities of the search function Can it search across mailboxes or repositories Requiring multiple searches might reduce the utility of the archive and content might be missed Not all archiving systems can quickly and efficiently search a large data set Try a query on a massive data set to judge the responsiveness of the archiver s search function Can the archive easily integrate with third party tools In most cases the email archiving system will become an essential part of your infrastructure so consider how well it will integrate with other elements Can the archive integrate with your user account management and access control system What about your reporting logging and audit tools These features could become critical stumbling blocks as the product is rolled out across a large organisation Note that the level of integration between archives and legal tools varies Most archives can export a set of messages in a PST file for use by e discovery tools while others can directly tie in with the most popular tools with direct database access and APIs The latter can be far more flexible and efficient and organisations with frequent legal searches and favourite tools will benefit from this type of integration What will users think There s a spectrum of email client integration some archives offer no integration and rely on a Web browser interface for archive access while others use toolbars executable extensions for certain clients or archive folders pushed from the mail server Regardless of the technology used consider the user s reaction see What users want below How will their interaction with their email client change once the archive is in place If executable extensions are required to be installed on client machines consider the impact of this rollout Think about the alternative email clients in use Most organisations offer Web email clients but some archiving systems don t integrate with those Many users also access their mail using mobile devices such as BlackBerry Windows Mobile Palm iPhone and Symbian However most archiving systems have little or no mobile device integration beyond Web access and these sites are sometimes poorly formatted or too graphically complex for mobile browsers Off line access is another key differentiator If a user can access their archived messages while on a plane they ll be far more likely to accept

  • Ten considerations for email archiving - Part 1
    these intensive sweeps but is much less common Consider whether this kind of user action information is critical to your archiving needs Can the archive ingest an existing mail store or PST files Many organisations would like their email archive to include messages that existed before the archiving application was installed These messages typically come from the mail system itself which might include a decade or more of old mail as well as from offline or user created archives like the PST files created by Microsoft s Outlook mail client Many archiving programs are able to pull in these old messages but some can t see PST indigestion below Bringing in old messages from a mail server generally requires an intensive migration process using the MAPI protocol This can take a few days so the process is often performed over a weekend large environments and those with email servers in multiple locations may find that it takes much longer Most email clients store personal archives on local disks so these may be anywhere your users are including laptops desktops network shares and portable drives This makes importing archives tricky as they must first be located and consolidated Not every system can handle all formats which can range from Outlook PST to Notes NSF to Unix mbox and maildir files No matter where historic messages are imported from the archive that contains them should be flagged as incomplete and potentially unreliable if ediscovery is a consideration Both email servers and personal archives are almost certainly missing a great many messages It s a trivial operation to change the content of most personal archives modern email archive systems are far more tamper proof Can the archive handle multiple email systems Not every email archiving application is capable of handling multiple email servers If your environment features more than one email server and especially if a variety of email systems are in use this feature could prove critical Generally speaking archives that use a messaging gateway are far more flexible in heterogeneous environments than those that integrate more directly with the mail system This is especially common in organisations created as the result of corporate mergers but some organisations find themselves in possession of heterogeneous mail systems for historic reasons Whatever the cause many email archive solutions don t support all of the various email servers including Microsoft Exchange IBM Lotus Notes Domino Unix mail and Apple s mail server What about non message content Some email archiving applications focus only on messages while others can also archive calendar items tasks and contacts A few also support other applications including file systems instant messages and database applications Not every environment needs this type of archiving but be sure to set expectations with management and your legal department about what is and isn t saved While some archiving systems support content outside the email system email is the most critical maintains Kelly Ferguson senior product marketing manager for email archiving at EMC Corp Including

  • Hard drive review: Samsung 64 GB SATA-II solid state drive
    settings or install your operating system once again I can confirm that the jump from SATA to SATA II on the drive creates no problems in compatibility whatsoever If you re a Dell owner insert the new SSD and follow the Clean Install Guide here Testing software and benchmarks Our reviewers I elected to add to the line up of benchmarking programs a bit on this review and went with PCMark05 ATTO HDTune HDTach CrystalDiskMark 2 1 as well as a little known program called Datamarck All results were very similar and the read speeds of the Samsung SATA II were consistently around the 100MB s mark with write speeds at 80 90MB s mark and a disk access time of 2ms This is quite an accomplishment for a company that released one of the first consumer SSDs less than a year ago and can now boast of doubling it s performance results simply through advancement of their controller technology and flash alone The surprise came with the result of the PCMark05 score which is the highest tested benchmark received from any SSD tested by myself yet and is also Futuremark s top score for systems of the same configuration This result was head and shoulders above both of the industries top contenders mentioned above Availability and pricing On the day of publication searchstorage com au saw the drive listed on dell com au as an AUD858 option Comparatively speaking your Samsung SSD purchase is getting you the same performance as you would from both other contenders only at twice the storage capacity since this is a 64GB drive vice their 32GB SSDs for the same price Conclusion Samsung and Dell sought to introduce us to a new SSD which would successfully tackle three barriers in the SSD industry performance limitations capacity and pricing At the end of the day although we would like to see prices drop significantly they did bring us a high performance SSD available in both 32GB and 64GB sizes and at a very small price difference from original offerings I would suggest this small bump can most likely quite easily be negotiated in new system purchases The overall benefits of an SSD reach well beyond pricing to include complete silence less heat longer portable battery life extreme shock resistance if the laptop is dropped and an incredible lifespan Coupled with lightning fast access times and far superior read write benchmarks this SSD is a whole new ball game for consumers Pros Speed matches that of upper tier SSDs 64GB capacity an improvement over past releases No great price increase over former Samsung release Two million hours mean time between failures this will probably outlast ownership Cons Lack of availability to purchase SSD on its own General price of SSD still out of reach for consumers Consumers still seek greater capacity in storage Dig Deeper on Primary storage and storage hardware All News Problem Solve Advantages of using an object storage system Dell storage products roadmap
