Combination of Metalogix Archive Manager and Nexsan Assureon Archive Storage System Enables Automated Content Management for Compliance and Disaster Recovery

Washington, DC – February 5, 2012 – Metalogix, the leading provider of content infrastructure software to improve the use and performance of enterprise content on Microsoft SharePoint, Exchange and Cloud platforms, today announced an alliance for Imation’s (NYSE: IMN) Nexsan archive storage systems. The companies now can offer organizations efficient Exchange and unstructured data archiving off of network-attached storage (NAS) filers.

The Metalogix and Nexsan solution allows both companies to offer outstanding performance and value by consolidating content from expensive filers, while providing advanced, compliant email lifecycle management, and eDiscovery for email and unstructured data.

“Working with Nexsan systems made sense for Metalogix from the perspective that we strive to provide organizations with solutions that centralize Exchange and Files data with full end-user transparency, while eliminating additional work for the IT department,” said Matthew Bründl-Pandzich, director, Metalogix Archiving Business Unit. “Nexsan’s Assureon archive storage system helps us go a step further by providing an intelligent storage platform behind Metalogix Archive Manager. Organizations can use Metalogix Archive Manager with the Nexsan Assureon archive storage system to automate the lifecycle management for compliance, cost-effective tiering, and disaster recovery.”

The multiple award-winning Metalogix Archive Manager is one of the most powerful and cost effective file and e-mail archiving solutions on the market. Through its native user interface, powerful single instance and hierarchal storage management, organizations can meet their legal compliance and performance requirements. Archive Manager is transparent to end-users, minimizes Exchange mailbox and unstructured content storage requirements, improves search and recovery at the e-mail and mailbox level and establishes an efficient and standardized eDiscovery workflow.

“The combination of the Nexsan Assureon archive storage system and Metalogix Archive Manager provides organizations with a high performance, easy-to-use solution for optimizing their primary storage, meeting compliance requirements and securely retaining files,” said Victoria Grey, senior vice president of marketing for Nexsan. “Available through our network of Assureon Certified Resellers, these solutions will help organizations drastically reduce the size of their backup storage and reduce their data center operational costs. These benefits coupled with unmatched data integrity features of the Assureon make the solution very appealing for all industries.”

Nexsan Assureon is an archive storage system that is ideal for primary storage optimization, regulatory and corporate compliance, and the secure, long-term retention of files. The Assureon system offloads data from primary storage to free up space for active data and greatly reduces the size, cost and complexity of backups. Security features comply with a number of corporate and governmental regulatory requirements, including HIPAA, SOX and SEC-17. Stringent data integrity features like file-fingerprinting helps ensure the file you save is the file you will retrieve regardless of time. The Assureon system is easy to administer, operates transparently without disruption to users or applications and can reside on-premise, in the cloud, or both.
