Compliance Monitoring and Reporting

Compliance Monitoring and Reporting:

Effective compliance policy enforcement requires the coordination of multiple stakeholders, at both a local level (branch compliance officers) and corporate level (supervisors and compliance / legal departments). While monitoring and policy enforcement take place at the local level, our Compliance Supervisor allows local and corporate supervisors, compliance managers and legal departments to effectively oversee adherence at both the local and corporate level with company-wide policies and procedures.

This is essential to protecting the integrity of compliance initiatives. Compliance Supervisor allows companies to have complete control over their compliance initiatives and enable them to pro-actively respond to suspect behavior and changing regulatory conditions.

Backing up remote sites

Backing up remote sites:

Disaster's are never good. They are always bad. Fire, flood, or vandalism strikes when you least expect, but NavigateStorage can show you how to plan the contingencies and be prepared to recover efficiently and effectively.'

Backing up of remote sites used to mean autoloaders and hoping that the local folks removed and safeguarded the tapes. Today's technology has made the backing up of remotes much less of a headache. Today we can backup via a backup service over the internet or we can backup to a local array for fast local restores and then send only delta changes back to central site. Or utilizing technology such as commonality factoring or capacity optimization we can achieve full backups with minimal WAN traffic.

Some of our storage arrays, such as American Megatrends (iSCSI SAS and SATA), actually have encrypted remote replication with data de-duplication capabilities all baked into the software. Another popular way to protect Remote Sites is with FilesX while some organizations like to turn the job over to our fully manned Network Operations Center and yet others enjoy the self managed e-folders offerings.

Whatever your choosing, give us a call and most likely we will have a solution tailored to meet your particular needs.

NavigateStorage are experts in understanding your remote site backup challenge and offering world class solutions to achieve them. Contact us vis a our web or write.

Unified Storage

Unified Storage:

Unified Storage is a single, integrated storage infrastructure that functions as unification engines to simultaneously support Fibre Channel, IP Storage Area Networks (SAN) and Network Attached Storage (NAS) data formats.

A unified storage system simultaneously enables storage of file data and handles the block-based I/O (input/output) of enterprise applications. In actual practice, unified storage is often implemented in a NAS platform that is modified to add block-mode support.

One advantage of unified storage is reduced hardware requirements. Instead of separate storage platforms, like NAS for file-based storage and a RAID disk array for block-based storage, unified storage combines both modes in a single device. Alternatively, a single device could be deployed for either file or block storage as required.

NavigateStorage offers unified storage in addition to many other storage solutions. Check us out. Write or call 978-318-9000

Mimosa Systems NavigateStorage

Mimosa Systems NavigateStorage:

Existing archiving solutions place heavy burdens on Exchange servers, relying on data capture methods like MAPI crawls and journaling – both of which can increase input/output per second (IOPS) on the Exchange server by up to 50%. Mimosa NearPoint for Microsoft Exchange incorporates an innovative data capture method called Continuous Application Shadowing™. Continuous Application Shadowing instantly captures Exchange log files once they are committed to disk and stores them “off-host” on NearPoint. It is an application-intelligent process, which also blocks corruption from the back-up copy. All email content extracted from the log files is indexed and stored with single-instance storage. Furthermore, Continuous Application Shadowing captures complete mailbox information including calendar items, tasks, contacts, and item histories.

Mimosa NearPoint™ then uses a method called Smart Message Extraction to process Exchange message data for archiving. Smart Message Extraction runs entirely on the NearPoint server and places no burden on Exchange. Each time transaction log files are received on NearPoint and applied to the full database replica, Smart Message Extraction automatically runs and processes the data for archival.
