MessageSolution File Archiving Solution
MessageSolution's Enterprise File Archive (EFA) is a comprehensive electronic document supervision and retention software solution for enterprises, non-profits, and government organizations. File archiving with Enterprise File Archive dramatically reduces the cost and complexity of data storage, recovery and backup.
How Does Enterprise File Archive Work?
Archiving all files, MessageSolution Enterprise File Archive is an automated archiving software-based system that runs inside the corporate network and connects to your existing file servers. Enterprise File Archive locates, offloads, cleans and stores files that meet an organization’s archiving policies. Enterprise File Archive’s
policy-driven features allow the file archive administrator to easily configure the archiving and storage options to meet an organization’s unique objectives. The file archive administrator can choose which files are archived, how files are stored, where files are stored and how long files are stored.

With no need for on-site installation or complicated maintenance, Enterprise File Archive is simple to use and deploys quickly. Authorized staff can search for, retrieve and restore their files immediately, without IT assistance. However, the file archive administrator also allocates employee archive access and activity rights, as determined by an organization’s corporate policy. This is especially useful for organizations under compliance regulations.
What are the Benefits of Enterprise File Archive?
1. Reduce File Server Storage 60-90%, Increase Server Performance
MessageSolution EFA effectively reduces file server's file data volume up to 90% by applying file stubbing technology, places large portion of files onto file archive server, and leaves a short cut for user to view and use files with transparent experience.
2. Offload Data to Secondary Storage, Reduce Storage Requirements for the archive up to 75%
The file archiving process compresses and offloads historical files from primary storage devices to less expensive secondary storage, which increases primary server performance, scalability and reliability, while simultaneously reducing storage management costs. The file archive also allows the file archive administrator to designate multiple repositories for hierarchical storage optimization.
MessageSolution's In-process Compression and Single Instance Storage de-duplication technologies reduce storage requirements for the archive by 60-75%, extremely advantageous for the organizations to archive the static and inactive files for a long period of time.
3. Access Corporate Intelligence
Faster, more accurate search functions enable organizations to easily locate and restore files to meet compliance and electronic discovery deadlines. The same next-generation indexing technology used in MessageSolution’s Enterprise Email Archive drives the file archive’s powerful search features, including full text keyword, key phrase and proximity searching. Enterprise File Archive comes with a user-friendly web-based archive interface, off line archive access and BlackBerry mobile access, along with convenient Windows desktop search integration.
4. Increase Employee and Administrator Productivity
How much time do your organization’s staff and IT administrators spend managing storage volumes on a weekly basis? 30 minutes? Multiple hours? Your IT admin may even spend almost a full work day managing old files. Enterprise File Archive’s fully automated, transparent file archiving process eliminates the need for staff to manage digital corporate intelligence manually, giving everyone back valuable time that can be spent on current projects.
