Email archiving is a critical data center application. Email archiving is usually located on premise, but hosted archiving is attractive because it reduces up-front server and storage costs and simplifies IT support efforts.
A hybrid approach should also be considered. This manages email locally before it moves to the cloud for long-term retention. Email remains accessible and can be returned to local storage for legal discovery. The main advantage of the hybrid approach is that it provides the performance of local email archiving while leveraging cloud storage to reduce total storage costs.
Iron Mountain is a new market entry and combines its existing hosted service with the Mimosa NearPoint on-premise email archiving solution. Iron Mountain recently acquired Mimosa, and one of the reasons for its purchase was so Iron Mountain could offer this hybrid approach to email archiving.
