Mimosa Announces Turn-Key ‘Move to Mimosa’ Legacy Migration Program for Customers to Replace Their Legacy Archiving Solutions

January 27, 2009

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ — Mimosa Systems, a leader in
next-generation email and file archiving solutions, announced today a new
turn-key migration program for customers that are facing the limitations of
their first-generation email archiving solution and want to move to Mimosa
NearPoint(TM). Mimosa NearPoint is the industry’s most comprehensive
unstructured information management software for email, files, and instant
messages — enabling archiving, eDiscovery, storage management, and recovery
in a unified solution. The new “Move to Mimosa” Legacy Migration Program
enables customers of first-generation archiving products to seamlessly upgrade
to the next-generation Mimosa NearPoint platform, and combines bundled
migration services at a significant promotional discount.

For the Cologne Germany-based transportation and logistics company, Hafen
und Guterverkehr Koln AG, its legacy email archiving solution from Symantec
was not delivering the protection they required for their employees. “We
needed to ensure that our email data was both protected and searchable without
fail,” said Sebastian Schmitz, IT administrator, Hafen und Guterverkehr Koln
AG. “After already working with our existing solution, we opted to switch to
Mimosa NearPoint. Its comprehensive features, including disaster recovery
right out of the box, were everything we were looking for in an archiving
product. Switching was a clear choice and we were up and running with zero
production impact to our Exchange environment.”

“Legato a first-generation email archiving solution was not able to meet
our expanding requirements for electronic discovery, end-user search and
disaster recovery,” said Douglas Blackburn, email administrator, Orange County
Sheriff Department. “After hearing about Mimosa NearPoint we took a closer
look and found that it truly was a next-generation solution that could address
all of our current and future requirements in a unified solution. Its
self-service search is very powerful and because it doesn’t require journaling
or agents on our Exchange Server it never impacts production performance like
our old solution did. It’s simply the best choice for our organization when
it comes to comprehensive email archiving.”

The “Move to Mimosa” Legacy Migration Program

Customers of legacy archiving products face challenges due to the lack of
performance and scalability, impact on Exchange servers, and high cost of
operations. They are dissatisfied because of gaps between actual performance
and what they were promised, the staleness of the technology, and feature
limitations that they experience. The “Move to Mimosa” Legacy Migration
Program has been designed to help customers quickly embrace the value of
today’s most powerful next-generation email and file archiving solution,
Mimosa NearPoint. With aggressive pricing and complimentary services, the
migration program will enable any organization to jump-start a more
comprehensive archiving strategy without downtime. The program includes:

    -- A 50 percent license discount on Mimosa NearPoint until the end of June
       2009 for customers replacing a first-generation archiving solution.
