Critical Path (News - Alert) has launched a new range of Messaging Appliances, aimed to meet the needs of customers leveraging the scalability of cloud computing within their own Enterprise data centers.
The new ‘Series 8’ appliances deliver in excess of 100 percent throughput performance and more than three times greater storage capacities as compared to the previous generation. In addition, the series continues to offer the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in the industry.
Series 8 hardware includes new quad and six-core Intel (News - Alert) Xeon processors along with new high-performance RAID controllers. Storage has been boosted to up to 8 TB of usable storage built in to the high-end models with hot-plug, high-performance SAS (News - Alert) drives – and an integrated LCD and Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) for facilitating operational maintenance and diagnostics.
The new appliances facilitate unmatched security and allow customers to remain in total control of their e-mail and messaging data. Whether Series 8 appliances are deployed within a cloud or a corporate firewall, users appreciate the ability to access their e-mail from any desktop or mobile Web browser, while administrators appreciate the appliance’s high reliability, low support needs and low TCO.
Mark Palomba, CEO at Critical Path, said, “The Series 8 range offers proven reliability at the marketplace’s lowest TCO. This is ideal for cloud-computing providers and enterprises that require crucial corporate data to reside inside their own firewalls.”
Critical Path’s family of messaging appliances includes RazorSafe and RazorGate, allowing customers to integrate messaging with secure archiving and anti-spam/anti-virus protection. The new systems also bring a new version of the software MOS 4.4. This delivers significant performance improvements alongside support for the new hardware.
