Atempo Inc. announced that Walden International has chosen Atempo LiveServ for Exchange to provide granular backup and recovery of the company's email data. Walden is a global venture capital (VC) firm, focusing on the communications, electronics, software and IT services, and semiconductor industries. Prior to LiveServ, restoring individual mailbox items from tape took an average of four to six hours. LiveServ splits up Exchange data into components for storage on disk, and such recoveries are reduced to minutes.
Walden International runs two LiveServ servers, one in San Francisco and one in Singapore. The company retains Exchange data at the message and database levels for three months before aging that data off to tape. The most common data recovery requests come from employees who have accidentally deleted emails, contacts or calendar items from their inboxes.
