SharePoint could be called the darling of Microsoft right now. It is the company's fastest growing server product of all time: cumulative sales broke the $1 billion mark in 2008 and more than 100 million licenses have been sold. With its collaboration and content management abilities, SharePoint is likely to remain a top seller for some time to come ȃ analysts are predicting annual growth of 25 percent per year for the next four years.
SharePoint also tends to be heavily integrated with email messaging systems to encompass all modes of information collaboration within the enterprise, so it's not surprising that the email archiving vendors are racing to service this blossoming new market. One of the first out the gate was Mimosa Systems of Santa Clara, Calif. The company recently added SharePoint capabilities to its NearPoint product suite.
"The astronomic success of SharePoint clearly establishes it as one of the leading business applications of 2009," said T.M. Ravi, CEO of Mimosa Systems.
Mimosa NearPoint is an email, file system and SharePoint archiving platform. It combines archiving and recovery into one unified solution that can encompass eDiscovery, content monitoring, archive retention and classification, Personal Storable Table (PST) management, tiered storage management and disaster recovery. NearPoint for Exchange, SharePoint and File System Archiving (FSA) are available within an integrated suite or as stand-alone products.
