Load Balancer ADC Information

  • Accessing, storing, and retaining email for long periods of time are key needs of any organization, but are often quite challenging for IT. The Barracuda Message Archiver enhances user productivity and reduces cost and risk by simplifying user access, email management, and eDiscovery/compliance.

    Cloud-Connected Archiving

    The cloud-connected Barracuda Message Archiver uses the Barracuda Cloud to move or copy data to the cloud. Setting policies in “mirror” mode replicates all data to the cloud for disaster recovery purposes. Setting the policy to “Rotate” mode allows the appliance to scale-up and use the cloud as a secondary tier of storage.

    Scale-Up by extending the archive into the cloud for off-site, long term, cost-effective storage. Setting policies in "Mirror" mode replicates all data to the cloud for backup and disaster recovery purposes. Setting the policy to "Rotate" mode allows the appliance to scale-up and use the cloud as a secondary tier of storage.

    Simplify Email Management

    Users treat mailboxes as filing cabinets, driving expensive server storage to expand continually. They respond to storage limits by archiving messages locally with PSTs, which are not managed (or even seen) by IT. The Barracuda Message Archiver dramatically reduces demand for email server storage through attachment stubbing, message / attachment deduplicaton, and compression, while also eliminating the need for PSTs.

    Barracuda Message Archiver Deployment

    Streamline eDiscovery and Compliance

    The Barracuda Message Archiver’s indexed archive supports extensive search, auditing/ permissions, legal hold, and export helping facilitate eDiscovery and retention. An intuitive interface and powerful feature set shortens response time to ensure messages are found easily when needed. Federated search lets users search across appliances and cloud-based data even when email services are unavailable.

    PST Enterprise for Message Archiver

    An advanced option for Message Archiver gives administrators the flexibility to systematically discover PST files throughout their organization and automatically determine and assign PST ownership even if the PST is password protected. Ownership can also be unassigned in the event the employee has left the company. Once discovered, data can be imported or deleted by age, in place, or migrated into Barracuda Message Archiver. Finally, administrators can automatically delete PST files. Once all PSTs have been imported, PST Enterprise for Message Archiver can disable the ability for PSTs to be created.
