Unlimited Mailbox Undergoes Rigorous Testing to Ensure Full Integration
with EMC Centera Content-Addressed Storage (CAS)
NEW YORK, March 6 /CNW/ -- Computer Generated Solutions, Inc. (CGS), a
leading provider of software, enabling technology and services and global
sourcing to organizations worldwide, today announced its Unlimited
Mailbox(TM), an Email management solution, is now EMC Centera Proven. This
designation is a result of Unlimited Mailbox testing for functionality and
compliance with EMC Centera, the world's leading content-addressed storage
EMC Centera 'Proven' status assures that customers using Unlimited
Mailbox by CGS can effectively deploy the solution with EMC Centera. Unlimited
Mailbox seamlessly integrates a company's current set of business practices,
thereby requiring little end-user training. It also allows companies to reduce
the cost of e-mail storage by automatically migrating older e-mail files from
online e-mail storage to less expensive media.
"Achieving EMC Centera Proven status is further proof of our commitment
to providing customers with world class solutions and reducing their technical
support costs," said Michael Wilding, SVP Technical Solutions and Training,
CGS. "Having an independent testing service authenticate Unlimited Mailbox's
compatibility will be of particular interest to corporate decision-makers who
are tasked with verifying the capability and legitimacy of a potential e-mail
Unlimited Mailbox with EMC Centera provides customers with a scalable and
cost-effective corporate e-mail management solution. Users enjoy the benefits
of having access to all their e-mail without having to call the help center,
resulting in increased productivity at both the employee and technical support
level. Administrators endorse this solution because it allows a retention
policy to be set for e-mail and attachments by user, by group, or companywide.
Unlimited Mailbox also supports corporate efforts to meet regulatory and
compliance drivers while permitting e-discovery readiness. This ensures
corporate legal issues can be dealt with in a timely manner.
Several features are implemented to achieve storage optimization. In
turn, costs are reduced through decreased demand for server storage. Unlimited
Mailbox code was developed using J2EE architecture making it platform
independent. Whereas no code resides on the primary e-mail server, the product
does not adversely interfere with client software warranty agreements.
To become EMC Centera Proven, Unlimited Mailbox underwent a series of
rigorous tests. These tests validated functionality requirements as
stipulated by EMC, including compatibility with basic EMC Centera
capabilities, single-instance storage, compliance, retention and technical
Chuck Hollis, EMC Vice President, Technology Alliances, said, "Computer
Generated Solutions has demonstrated its product quality and commitment to a
best of class integration with EMC Centera by becoming an EMC Centera Proven
partner. Unlimited Mailbox is ideally suited to leverage EMC Centera to drive
new value from enterprise content at a price point that sets a new service
level for long-term storage."
The EMC Centera Proven test plan is based on EMC best practices. Testing
concentrates on the following areas: hardware and software setup, basic
Centera capabilities, Centera replication, Centera disaster recovery and
offsite backup, compliance and retention, single-instance storage, capacity
reporting, and technical support.
