BURLINGAME, California, October 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Bizanga, the global company behind the most scalable and full-featured email and message processing platform, today unveiled its storage system for email, delivering a revolutionary change for large email infrastructure. The Bizanga storage system incorporates breakthrough software innovations to combine the lowest TCO in the industry with unlimited scalability and carrier-grade reliability. It is already being deployed at Telenet, Belgium's largest provider of broadband cable service.

Operators are facing increasing demand for storing user-generated content such as email, driving the need for ever larger data-storage solutions, notes Jerome Lecat, CEO of Bizanga. This has resulted in ever increasing complexity as systems are upgraded and retrofitted to suit the requirements. Bizanga's new storage technology breaks this mold and allows a customer to reuse existing equipment, adding additional low-cost, off-the-shelf storage hardware as needed without sacrificing throughput and reliability.

Bizanga's storage technology for email delivers the following key benefits:

- Unprecedented TCO - The total cost of ownership of a full-fledged Bizanga storage solution is typically 30% of that of a standard SAN solution. The system integrates de-duplication and compression algorithms and can manage tiered storage policies to further minimize storage costs. - Unlimited Scalability - Bizanga storage solutions easily scale to multi Petabytes or more while still serving objects with a standard latency of 20ms. - Unmatched Manageability - Through its freely definable policies, the Bizanga storage system can handle different email retention strategies as well as enable easy migration paths for underlying storage infrastructure. Its self-healing design and complete management system make it extremely straightforward to manage. - Best-in-Class Integration capability - The Bizanga storage system is fully integrated with scalable message storage systems such as Zimbra. It also provides numerous standardized API's based on REST and WebDAV, opening it up to use by a large number of existing applications. - Carrier-grade reliability - The patented RING technology used in the Bizanga storage system delivers the ability to distribute storage across multiple data centers, regardless of latency between data centers. This provides for full disaster recovery capability, enabling data access even in cases of complete site failure.

We have been searching for a solution to replace our aging open-source system for several years, said Peter Michiels, Telenet's Senior VP Network Systems Engineering. In Bizanga's storage solution we found all the capabilities we have been looking for. It allows us to develop storage intensive applications offering a more compelling user experience while significantly lowering our TCO.
