Amazon Web Services and ComArchive in new partnership

  • 30 November, 2009 10:12

<p>Amazon and danish ComArchive have entered into a unique partnership. The deal makes it easier, safer and cheaper than ever before for companies of all sizes to get a highly professional e-mail archiving solution. This is facilitated by combining the market’s best e-mail archiving software with Amazon Web Services’ groundbreaking Cloud Computing.</p>
<p>Amazon Web Services is the world’s leading provider of cloud computing, EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud), - a solution seeing rocketing growth in these years. Cloud computing gives the customer processing power, bandwidth and data storage at Amazon on a needs basis, and you only pay for what you use.</p>
<p>Danish ComArchive in partnership with Amazon Web Services is now offering a turnkey answer to companies’ e-mail archiving needs. This will help companies all over the globe quickly retrieve their old e-mail correspondence and generally keep tabs on large volumes of business-critical e-mails.</p>
<p>Installed in just 10 minutes</p>
<p>”The smart thing is that you can log on to Amazon, create a server and have a comprehensive and safe archiving solution up and running in the space of 10 minutes,” says Svend Frandsen, CEO, ComArchive.</p>
<p>Amazon offers a vast array of server configurations with software that has already been defined and is ready for use. As a user, you just purchase access and from there on, it is very simple to start up a server using an image that you choose on the basis of your own needs.</p>
<p>ComArchive’s new solution consists of a total of six ready server images. Which of the six virtual servers you decide to start up at Amazon as a customer is determined by your need for security and computing power. A common feature of the six server images is that they contain fully operational version of ComArchive\'s e-mail archiving software which is identical to the solution you can download from</p>
<p>Natural consequence of the virtualisation wave</p>
<p>The advantage of e-mail archiving on a virtual Amazon EC2 server is the installation speed, the security and the low price:</p>
<p>”Over the past few years, companies have opened their eyes to the fact that virtualisation holds great potential. We have been at the forefront of this trend, and we can now see that virtualisation is followed by a migration of servers to safer and less expensive providers - and Amazon\'s EC2 concept is second to none in this field,\" says Svend Frandsen. The CEO is pleased with the great interest in the concept, because the solution is already in use at several companies, including Balslev A/S.</p>
<p>”Security gets top priority at Amazon and with the help of ComArchive, we have added the Amazon server to our corporate network with high security and VPN accessibility\", says CIO Michael Frendorff, Balslev A/S.</p>
<p>Great financial potential for everyone involved</p>
<p>”Balslev has obtained a server-based archiving solution which can be operated for less than a dollar per employee and month. If we compare this cost with the expenses of hosting your own e-mail archiving, it becomes clear that we’re looking at a highly competitive product,” says Svend Frandsen.</p>
<p>The potential inherent in the collaboration with Amazon is very great indeed for ComArchive, according to the company’s CEO. The market for e-mail archiving solutions is expected to reach USD 1 billion in 2011, and ComArchive\'s partnership with Amazon gives the company a considerable technological edge.</p>
