E-Mail Storage Optimization in Lotus Notes Through Transparent Zip-Free Attachment Compression Using FILEminimizer Technology from Balesio

Corporate email storage is growing at explosive rates and managing email storage has become one of the most important challenges. Capitalizing on FILEminimizer’s zip-free compression technology balesio now offers a transparent client solution to conveniently optimize the size of e-mail attachments directly in Lotus Notes.

Steinhausen, Switzerland, May 23, 2010 --(PR.com)-- With the latest version of its FILEminimizer client version, balesio now offers an efficient solution to manage email data growth on a corporate level. FILEminimizer sports a transparent add-in to Lotus Notes including the latest version 8.5. It can be set to optimize all supported file attachments automatically using the pre-configured compression settings. FILEminimizer works silently in the background without any required interaction from the end-user and optimizes Microsoft Office as well as image attachments automatically. The software achieves file size reductions of over 70% on Microsoft Office and image files using the FILEminimizer technology, a set of various optimization methods and algorithms which can best be described as Native File Optimization (NFO). “We are essentially looking at each single file and analyze it in detail. We then apply our FILEminimizer optimization technology, i.e. our comprehensive image optimization and internal deduplication algorithms and reduce the file size by over 70% retaining the native file format,” explains Daniel Bernard, CEO of balesio AG. “This can now happen in a transparent way directly in Lotus Notes. In the moment a Microsoft Office file is sent out via e-mail, the FILEminimizer optimization begins in the background and thus reduces the data transfer volume of file attachments by 70%. This is a great relief for our clients and their Domino Servers.”
