Miami-Dade Aviation Chooses Mimosa NearPoint Content Archiving
Santa Clara, Calif .— Jan. 20
Mimosa Systems, a provider of e-mail and file archiving solutions, announced that Miami-Dade Aviation Department, operator of Miami International Airport, has selected the Mimosa NearPoint content archiving solution to protect its e-mail information and to simplify its discovery, retrieval and retention.
Miami International Airport is served by 80 airlines, which provide service to 150 destinations around the globe. Ranked in 2007 among U.S. airports, No. 1 in international freight, and No. 3 in international passengers, the airport supports travel needs for an average of more than 648,000 passengers a week. Miami-Dade Aviation uses e-mail communication for many of its business processes, resulting in staggering data growth and management complexity for its IT staff.
To help control rapid information growth, Miami-Dade Aviation was constraining its e-mail users with strict mailbox size quotas. As a result, many users were storing data in PST files — personal e-mail folders that store e-mail data on an individual’s computer. Miami-Dade Aviation initiated a selection process to identify a comprehensive e-mail archiving solution that would reduce server storage requirements, remove mailbox size quotas and eliminate PST files while allowing for fast and easy recovery. Miami-Dade Aviation selected Mimosa NearPoint with its PST archiving option and “one-click disaster recovery.”
“Mimosa NearPoint will simplify the storage management of our Exchange servers because it puts more control into the hands of our end-users,” said Cesar Lopez, network manager in the information systems division of Miami-Dade Aviation. “Now our users will have greater access, search and recovery of their data when they want it, without calling IT first. It also doesn’t require the installation of any agents on the client machines, which reduces network management, interoperability, I/O and memory considerations. It is exactly the comprehensive solution we were looking for.”
