FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MessageSolution and FalconStor Deliver Turnkey Solution for Enterprise Archiving, DR, and High-Availability
Award Winning Products Deliver Integrated Solution for Mail Server Data Protection and Quick Recovery from System Failure
MILPITAS, Calif., and MELVILLE, N.Y., May 11, 2009 – MessageSolution, Inc., the global technology leader in email and file archiving solutions for electronic discovery, litigation support, compliance and storage management, and FalconStor Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: FALC), the provider of TOTALLY Open™ data protection solutions, today announced a partnership to deliver a turnkey archive, backup, disaster recovery and high-availability solution for today’s enterprises.
This collaboration brings together two award-winning, best-of-breed products for an integrated enterprise-class solution: FalconStor® Network Storage Server (NSS) was named a Silver award winner in the “Backup and Disaster Recovery Software and Services Category” of Storage magazine’s 2008 Products of the Year awards, while
MessageSolution was the winner of the Enterprise Email Archiving category in Network Product Guide’s 2008 Best Products & Services Awards.
“We are very pleased to announce the synergy of MessageSolution’s high-performance archiving software and FalconStor’s innovative storage virtualization technology,” said Jeff Liang, Chief Technical Officer of MessageSolution. “This alliance will provide businesses with a scalable turnkey solution that meets the growing need for records retention, data protection and recovery in the enterprise.”
MessageSolution and FalconStor NSS work together to provide business solutions that help companies control increasingly large volumes of digital data, to decrease storage hardware requirements, meet compliance requirements, improve backup efficiency and reliably recover 100 percent of data while minimizing system downtime.
“By deploying MessageSolution email and file archiving technologies together with FalconStor NSS, organizations can automate a comprehensive records retention program while providing users with immediate access to archived data,” said Bernie Wu, vice president of business development at FalconStor. “Data can be recovered instantly in its native format, minimizing system downtime and the accompanying productivity loss.”
MessageSolution archiving software’s support for all enterprise email servers, including Microsoft Exchange, IBM Notes Domino, Novell GroupWise and major Linux/UNIX-based email servers, makes MessageSolution a top choice for organizations of all sizes and industries on all server platforms. MessageSolution employs policy-based archiving or archiving in real time to capture data before fully indexing all contents and metadata for comprehensive searching of enterprise archives and expedited restoration of archived items.
“MessageSolution archiving compresses and deduplicates data so that data stores are pared down to only truly business-critical information and makes that information easily searchable,” Liang explained. “Businesses can store archived data to FalconStor NSS to leverage its outstanding performance with high availability, minimize disk capacity investment with thin provisioning and ensure that information contained in the corporate archive can always be quickly and effectively restored.”
Granular retention policies ensure data remains searchable in the archive, as long as it remains relevant or legally viable. After relevant email, attachment, file or instant message data has been archived by MessageSolution archiving software, FalconStor NSS technology delivers local physical and virtual server protection from local data centers or remote disaster recovery sites. FalconStor NSS extends archive data protection to remote sites using powerful IP-based replication. FalconStor NSS devices in branch offices can replicate archived data to a data center, eliminating the need for remote-site tape backups of the archive. Data-center-based FalconStor NSS devices can replicate archived data to a remote disaster recovery site. In the event of a site-level disaster, administrators can quickly restart business operations at the DR site, using individual standby servers or consolidated virtual machines. Once the facilities at the local site are repaired, the remote replicated data can be written back to the local site’s archive to resume normal operations.

What Differentiates MessageSolution Products
Customers continually emphasize MessageSolution products' excellent overall performance, support of all major email servers, and ease of use. MessageSolution provides sub-second data retrieval, an intuitive interface, and ease of deployment and maintenance. MessageSolution's intelligent back-end design significantly reduces installation requirements, backup time, and the need for technical support.
MessageSolution Enterprise Email Archive™ deftly manages petabytes of data daily, a powerful enterprise archiving solution. Electronic discovery and litigation support are empowered by the archive’s built-in search engine, which searches through millions of emails within seconds across global locations and data centers. Users can access their archive through their email client, browser, or BlackBerry.
MessageSolution delivers the industry’s highest enterprise-level scalability and holds the industry record of archiving 11,000 users on one single MessageSolution archive server. Competitive vendors archive on average 3,000-5,000 users on a single archive server, much less than MessageSolution archiving system’s scalability and flexibility.
A high in-process compression rate combined with single instance message and attachment archiving slows archive storage growth. Enterprise Email Archive™ further reduces organizations' storage costs by using only 30% of the original mail server storage space for live content archiving. MessageSolution's products support all Latin-based languages, as well as all character-based languages, such as Japanese and Chinese.
