Who Are We?
We are MirrorSphere and for over 10 years we have specialised in installing and maintaining archiving solutions.
Email archiving is the largest reason we came to exist. We have provided email archiving for all sizes of customers across all verticals and business spaces from law firms to councils through to national establishments from the dawn of our creation.
Very soon after we started, we began supporting File Archiving and SharePoint Archiving naturally followed.
How Can We Help You?
Email archiving, file archiving and SharePoint archiving are not only great ways of keeping your mailbox and file servers running smoothly, they also allow you to reduce your storage footprint. In turn, this provides a greater handle on your data from retention – what gets kept and for how long for – to legal cases where eDiscovery is essential, making it an integral part of ensuring data governance requirements are met.
Our team of email archiving specialists have a combined working knowledge of 20+ Years of hands-on experience. We pride ourselves on being the best archiving specialists around.
Whether your emails are sitting on Microsoft Exchange or Domino Notes Servers, there is no doubt quotas will be being met or even extended. As such an integral part of any business, it is critical that the mailbox servers are always up and running.
Archiving older data is a great way to ease the storage load off your mailbox servers as well as the resource load.
Moving the data from the mailbox servers is also cost effective as the archived data can be stored on more affordable, tiered storage.
By carrying out File System archiving, you can reduce your storage footprint. Firstly, by archiving the data to more affordable, tiered-storage and secondly as the archiving platform utilises single instance storage, the size of the footprint by the archived files is greatly reduced. Further storage wins are found by compression and deduplication.
Once the data has been archived, it is then indexed and categorised making it searchable and easily accessible. All metadata is indexed providing a number of search points as well as the content of the files. As all the metadata is indexed, as are the permissions, ensuring the files are always only available to the correct users.
By archiving your data from SharePoint, you lose none of the functionalities but gain the added benefit of optimised storage, due to single instancing.
By replacing the SharePoint data with shortcuts, we reduce the database size making for a faster backup and recovery.
As with all archiving, you can apply retention and deletion policies based on certain file criteria ensuring you are retaining the data you need to for the length of time legally required
With all items now indexed and classified, searching for the archived information is now a lot simpler. This provides such a huge advantage when it comes to litigious cases.
Using eDiscovery tools to carry out preliminary litigious searches or in-house incidents huge legal costs can be saved.
