Integrates de-duplication and compression algorithms
Bizanga has launched new storage system for email, which it claims to incorporate new software innovations to combine lowest TCO with scalability and carrier-grade reliability.
The new system integrates de-duplication and compression algorithms and can manage tiered storage policies to further minimise storage costs. The total cost of ownership of a the new offering is 30% of that of a standard SAN offering, the company claims.
According to Bizanga, the new storage technology for email scales to multi petabytes or more while still serving objects with a standard latency of 20ms. It can handle different email retention strategies and enable migration paths for underlying storage infrastructure.
Bizanga said that the new storage technology for email is integrated with message storage systems such as Zimbra. It also provides standardised API’s based on REST and WebDAV, opening it up to use by a large number of existing applications;
The Ring technology used in the storage system delivers the ability to distribute storage across multiple data centres, regardless of latency between data centers. This provides for full disaster recovery capability, enabling data access even in cases of complete site failure; and unprecedented TCO, the company said.
Jerome Lecat, CEO of Bizanga, said: Operators are facing increasing demand for storing user-generated content such as email, driving the need for ever larger data-storage solutions. This has resulted in ever increasing complexity as systems are upgraded and retrofitted to suit the requirements. Bizanga’s new storage technology breaks this mold and allows a customer to reuse existing equipment, adding additional low-cost, off-the-shelf storage hardware as needed without sacrificing throughput and reliability.
