THINKstrategies Strategic Thinking Profile

By Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director
July 2012


Although everyone talks about the explosive growth of social networking tools, such as Facebook and Twitter, the fact is that email continues to be the preferred communications method for the vast majority of users, with over 350 million Hotmail users, 310 million Yahoo! Mail users and 350 million Gmail users.

While email is pivotal to the day-to-day operations of most organizations, few have taken the precaution of backing up their email systems to safeguard against a service disruption that can threaten their email messages records and associated data.

Small- and mid-size businesses (SMBs) spent $11 billion on Cloud Computing in 2011 worldwide, according to Techaisle, an SMB-focused research firm, which predicts Cloud-based storage services will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12 percent through 2015, with email back-up and recovery representing a growing proportion of this growth.

One of the fastest growing providers of Cloud-based RaaS solutions is Geminare.

This profile will examine the company’s RaaS capabilities and show how they have capitalized on the substantial popularity of Public Cloud Infrastructure also known as IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) by embedding their leading archiving solution into Microsoft’s Windows Azure platform to create a new solution called myVault Email Archive powered by Microsoft Windows Azure.
