Metalogix Archive Manager – Exchange Edition Allows Kahuna Ventures to Eliminate PST Files and Improve Email Archiving, Data Retention and Recovery

Natural Gas Consulting & Engineering Firm Reduces Email Archiving Storage Volume by 50% and Dramatically Improves Email Backup and Management Processes with Metalogix

Washington, DC, November 12, 2011 --( Metalogix Software, the trusted provider of content lifecycle management solutions for Microsoft® SharePoint®, Exchange®, and Cloud platforms, announced today that Kahuna Ventures LLC has purchased its Metalogix Archive Manager – Exchange Edition solution to manage its Outlook mailboxes and PST files. The company chose Metalogix Archive Manager – Exchange Edition because it needed an email archiving solution that would offer sound data protection and disaster recovery for email data by backing up email to an offsite location.

In just 12 years, Kahuna Ventures has grown from a one-employee company to an organization supporting a variety of clients ranging from midstream limited partnerships to major gas producers. As a longstanding leader in natural gas engineering and consulting, Kahuna Ventures employees often rely on previous email communications to support current or past project details and often need to access email information that might be years old. With some mailboxes topping 10GB and risking corruption, Kahuna Ventures needed to act fast in order to protect their data.

“We didn’t want to go through with the overhead created by most email archiving solutions that focused mainly on legal retention,” said Steve Russell, Manager, Information Technology, Kahuna Ventures. “That’s when we were introduced to Metalogix. After looking at Metalogix Archive Manager – Exchange Edition, we narrowed it down very quickly and decided Metalogix was the best fit for what we were looking for.”

Metalogix Archive Manager – Exchange Edition includes the legal retention features that Kahuna Ventures needed with a lightweight implementation that other competitors could not match. Metalogix Archive Manager – Exchange Edition is a flexible solution for email archiving, retention and disposition that collects, uploads and archives PST files to protect them and make them available, even when working remotely. The product features an easy-to-use Outlook or Outlook Web Access experience, which makes it transparent for users while providing complete email lifecycle management by capturing, routing, storing, restoring, migrating and deleting emails automatically based on company policy.

Kahuna Ventures reduced its email volume by 50% after installing Metalogix Archive Manager, making it much easier to backup and manage to its offsite data center. Kahuna Ventures now has the email protection it needed without the management risk of burdensome PST files as its email data is reliably backed up and can be easily recovered by the users themselves.

“Metalogix Archive Manager – Edition Exchange provided Kahuna Ventures with the email archiving solution it needed to archive emails due to legal retention and securely protect email data," said Steven Murphy, CEO of Metalogix. "Thanks to our solution’s lightweight implementation and ability to reduce the company’s email volume in half, Kahuna Ventures entrusted Metalogix to archive their files. Kahuna Ventures has been able to increase productivity as their end users now have the freedom to quickly recover business-critical emails that could be several years old.”
