Mimosa Systems Survey Reveals Two-Thirds of UK Firms Lack Confidence in Their Ability to Recover Microsoft Exchange
BusinessWire, June 11, 2008
According to a survey conducted by Mimosa Systems, a leader in live content archiving solutions, two-thirds of IT executives have little confidence in their ability to completely recover information on their Microsoft Exchange servers in the event of a failure or disaster. The research also showed that many UK firms spend hours trying to recover a failed Microsoft Exchange server, which is turn, leaves employees helpless for a good chunk of the work day.
“Email has become the most pervasive business application of the decade, and Microsoft Exchange is by far the most popular choice for UK businesses,” said Brian Bennett, managing director of Mimosa Systems UK. “As companies put more and more critical data onto their Exchange servers the greater their need to ensure they have a robust and rapid recovery plan in place.”
Statistics like this make it obvious that IT personnel need all the help they can get when archiving, protecting and retaining electronic information. Failing to do so will only hurt your business and leave you staring at a blank, unresponsive email application.
