AXS-One Enhances its Central Archive, Enterprise Information Archiving System

AXS-One (News - Alert), a provider of enterprise information archiving solutions, has upgraded its AXS-One Central Archive to facilitate an easy archiving process for customers including installation, administration and usability.
Central Archive is a policy-based archival and management system for electronic records to facilitate legal discovery, compliance and governance, and to optimize performance.
“As the amount and type of data continue to increase exponentially and IT organizations look to control storage costs and address regulatory compliance, eDiscovery and information governance, the need for unified and simplified archiving of business data becomes critical,” said Mark Bygraves, senior vice president and general manager at AXS-One.
Performance improvements will remarkably improve ingestion and search. Just as well, the improved usability will help electronic discovery custodian-based searching, and Lotus Notes/Domino configuration and management for multiple e-mail servers, officials said in a statement.
The AXS-One Central Archive is a scalable system enabling cost-effective compliance, electronic discovery, and storage via a single interface. Electronic records such as e-mail, instant messages, desktop documents, file systems, SAP (News - Alert) data, Lotus Notes NSFs, SharePoint and others can be forensically archived, searched and produced.
Custodian-based searching and packaging and enhanced Notes Domino mail to PST conversion are featured. Searches are enabled based on custodian, dates and keywords, resulting in searching and archiving performance improvements.
AXS-One Central Archive offers support for Microsoft (News - Alert) Exchange 365 featuring archiving using Exchange Web Services, decryption and direct retrieval of attachments from shortcut links. Connection to an internal network is not required when users search and retrieve messages as the archive is cached locally, explained officials.
“This new release of the AXS-One Central Archive reduces the complexity of archiving and delivers on our promise to customers for new standard configurations, easier upgrade installation workflows, and rich performance for searches across the archive,” added Bygraves.
The centralized configuration management facilitates configuring and making changes so that it is not necessary to configure all e-mail servers. The added managed ingestion capability for Lotus Notes NSF archiving hastens the processing of existing NSF files into the archive.
Further, streamlining workflows and management encompassing installation, configuration and administration is also simplified.
