Press Release

More Than 400 Organizations Worldwide Adopt EMC Sourceone to Manage Risks, Simplify E-Discovery and Cut Storage Costs

EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced that in just one year since its introduction, more than 400 organizations worldwide have adopted EMC SourceOne™. Customers including Northampton Borough Council, Ogilvy South Africa and TOMRA are deploying EMC SourceOne to help them manage risks, simplify e-discovery and cut storage costs.

HOPKINTON, Mass., April 8, 2010 - 

EMC Corporation (NYSE:EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced that in just one year since its introduction, more than 400 organizations worldwide have adopted EMC SourceOne™.  Customers including Northampton Borough Council, Ogilvy South Africa and TOMRA are deploying EMC SourceOne to help them manage risks, simplify e-discovery and cut storage costs.

U.K. Public Agency Controls Storage Growth and Promotes Compliance

The Northampton Borough Council employs over 1,500 people in a vast range of jobs to serve the 200,000 people who live within the largest borough in England.  The borough council had high production storage costs due to the growth of e-mail messages and proliferation of PST files.  In addition, it needed to comply with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) which requires a multi-year retention policy.

“EMC SourceOne is enabling us to eliminate nearly 400 gigabytes of PST files which reduces our storage production costs and improves our back-up window,” said Carl Moreton, Enterprise Systems Project Analyst at Northampton Borough Council.  “And now that all of our archived e-mail is stored in one repository, we can easily manage our retention policy to meet FOIA compliance.  On top of that, the flexible, easy-to-use search tool is becoming very popular with our users.”

Ad Agency Reins in IT Costs and Reduces E-mail Retrieval Time from Two Weeks to Just Minutes

Ogilvy South Africa, an advertising agency, needed to avoid using up all available disk space in their e-mail servers and evolve its e-mail storage strategy to minimize exhaustion of IT resources while reining in costs.

“With EMC SourceOne, we are able to minimize IT costs by curbing the growth of our production e-mail environment and reducing the time for back-up, defragmentation and restore processes,” said David Breytenbach, Group IT Manager at Ogilvy South Africa.  “We accomplished this with no end-user training required and the whole process was transparent to the users.”

“In addition, e-mail retrieval for e-discovery requests has historically been a challenge sometimes taking up to two weeks,” said Breytenbach.  “Since EMC SourceOne was implemented, the whole process can now be performed by any IT support staff within minutes.”

Global Provider of Recycling Solutions Proactively Manages Growth of Production E-mail Environment

With the mission of “Helping the World Recycle,” TOMRA is a leading global provider of advanced solutions enabling recovery and recycling of materials.  The company required a solution that would slow down the growth of its production e-mail environment and quickly produce e-mails for litigation-readiness.

“One of the real benefits of EMC SourceOne is eliminating the time-consuming process of restoring back-up tapes when we need e-mails for legal purposes,” said Kyle Burke, Senior Infrastructure Engineer at TOMRA.  “With all of our e-mails ingested, we can easily search the EMC SourceOne archive.  We are also proactively managing the growth of our Exchange server and have reduced the risks of unmanaged data by collecting and archiving PST files.”
