Current Threat: Email is an integral part of conducting business today. With the increasing importance of email, even the slightest disruption in service can have significant financial impact on a business. As a mission critical part of an organization's communication infrastructure, contingency planning and disaster recovery for email systems must be a standard requirement rather than an afterthought.  Loss of email data can result from something as simple as the accidental deletion of individual messages to the physical destruction of a datacenter through natural or manmade hardware or software failures disasters. Mirapoint disaster recovery solutions can be customized to an organization’s recovery requirements.

Tomorrow's Technology Today - Disaster Recovery


Tomorrow's Technology Today: Mirapoint’s Remote Site Replication (RSR) solution is designed to provide enterprises and higher educational organizations with a proactive disaster recovery solution for protecting critical email. RSR provides continuous access to email and remotely replicates a copy of all business critical email activity. As a result, organizations can avoid downtime, protect the integrity of their data, and store historical data for regulatory and compliance requirements. RSR easily deploys with Mirapoint’s mail and security appliances and provides enterprises with a cost effective solution to ensure business continuity.

Disaster Recovery for Enterprise Email
A natural disaster such as a hurricane, earthquake or fire, or more mundane failures such as power, air conditioning, or human error can be damaging for businesses, resulting in loss of intellectual property and revenue. Email is mission critical for conducting business today and can be vulnerable in event of a disaster. Without email, most businesses would come to a grinding halt. With the increasing importance of email, even the slightest disruption in service can have significant financial impact on a business. Gartner predicts that by the end of 2007, 75 percent of Global 2000 companies will have emergency systems for employee communication as part of disaster recovery plans in the event of a crisis. As a mission critical part of an organization’s communication infrastructure, disaster recovery for email systems must be a standard requirement rather than an afterthought.

A Complete Messaging and Disaster Recovery Solution
Mirapoint’s RSR provides businesses with the security of a dual-site system at a very affordable price. RSR ensures that the services, along with a copy of email, calendaring and contact data is available at a remote location so that recovery can happen with minimal downtime. RSR adds to an already broad range of available Mirapoint business continuity solutions, ranging from backups to SAN snap shots to hot-spare appliances to mail store clusters.

Mirapoint’s Message Server provides a standards-based platform that intelligently serves, secures and manages messages and schedules with multi-mode client access. Message Server appliances scale to support tens of thousands of users and their ever-expanding mailboxes. Mirapoint Message Server also offers carrier-class, 99.999 percent uptime reliability and the industry’s lowest total cost of ownership.

Conclusion: Organizations can avoid downtime, protect the integrity of their data, and store historical data for regulatory and compliance requirements. RSR easily deploys with Mirapoint’s mail and security appliances and provides enterprises with a cost effective solution to ensure business continuity.   Enterprises that cannot tolerate even short email downtimes - such as many financial, healthcare or government organizations - may need an off-site replicated email server that is synchronized with (“shadows”) the data on the local Message Server.  This “hot backup” solution can limit data loss to less than four hours. Should a disaster occur, less than an hour is required to restore users' access to email data.  In order to meet the stringent needs of customers requiring such a solution, Mirapoint can provide wide area replication of Mirapoint Message Servers.
