Mimosa Serves Up New NearPoint ReleaseFor companies faced with limitations in their first-generation email archiving systems, who are contemplating the inevitable compliance-related upgrade with trepidation due to the sheer mass of data already archived in the old system, Mimosa now offers a "Move to Mimosa" Legacy Migration Program.

Mimosa states this program will enable customers currently employing first-generation archiving products to seamlessly upgrade to the next-generation Mimosa NearPoint platform. To promote the deployment of their NearPoint product line they have bundled custom migration services at a discount.

  • Lack of performance and scalability
  • Impact on Exchange servers
  • High cost of operations
  • Staleness of the technology
  • Feature limitations
