New archiving option
Group Logic has announced a partnership with Symantec in developing a file system archival (FSA) scheme for Mac-based organizations. The arrangement combines Symantec's Enterprise Vault with Group Logic's ArchiveConnect, and promises to reduce storage costs as much as 60 percent.
The ArchiveConnect Mac software copes with problems that have prevented FSA from operating on Mac infrastructure in the past. It manages Finder's communication with network volumes containing offline files, preventing mass recalls of archived material. Enterprise Vault handles organization-wide e-mail and content archival tasks.
The two companies have not made further details of the partnership public, such as pricing plans.
