PARIS – June 7, 2023 – BlueMind, a European leader in open-source enterprise collaborative messaging, and Scality, a global leader in reliable, secure and sustainable data storage software, announced today their official partnership to offer an object storage solution for enterprise email that can scale. Storing a single email may only occupy a few kilobytes of space on a hard disk drive but the increasing and widespread use of messaging and the management of very large numbers of users require significant and growing storage space. As a result, the total emails stored by a BlueMind platform can require several hundred terabytes of data storage! Managing this storage space presents real challenges for the IT infrastructure, in addition to the issues of maintenance and backup.
The latest major version of BlueMind already made it possible to take advantage of object storage to manage very large volumes of e-mails via Software-Defined Storage (SDS). The upcoming major version of BlueMind, currently undergoing validation, will offer a native design and management of object storage. The scale-out functionality of Scality RING, means BlueMind can help customers manage petabytes of emails with a reliable, software-defined solution. Now customers have limitless flexibility and growth. Organizations can now store messaging in a highly protected environment that consolidates and reduces capacity requirements up to 40%.
The BlueMind-Scality integrated solution is now available in France and across Europe. Interested companies can contact the BlueMind team to find out more.
