Kroll Ontrack addresses externalized content storage – including shredded files – and live mailbox collection with Ontrack PowerControls 7.1
New features support data restoration from Metalogix StoragePoint and collection from live Microsoft® Office Exchange Server environments
Minneapolis – January 22, 2014 –Kroll Ontrack, the leading provider of data recovery and ediscovery products and services, today announced the availability of Ontrack® PowerControls™ version 7.1. This enhancement allows IT administrators to access, search and restore externalized data from Remote BLOB Storage (RBS), including externalized Microsoft® SharePoint® 2013 shredded files, as well as collect and export data from a live Microsoft Exchange Server.
“BLOBs, or Binary Large Objects, consume 80-95 percent of SharePoint storage space, and storing that content natively is extremely expensive and can result in poor performance,” explains Tom McCaffrey, product director of enterprise solutions, Kroll Ontrack. “As a result, many organizations leverage RBS solutions like Metalogix StoragePoint to externalize BLOBs to less expensive storage, dramatically reducing SQL database volumes and costs while significantly improving database performance. Ontrack PowerControls 7.1 enables IT administrators to rebuild these externalized databases, including shredded SharePoint files, during the granular restore process and effectively locate and restore critical files.”
In addition to restoring externalized RBS data, Ontrack PowerControls 7.1 addresses the need to adeptly respond to legal requests for the defensible collection of potentially relevant data, including real-time data stored within a live Exchange environment. Through advanced collection capabilities, Ontrack PowerControls, a software solution within the ediscovery.com Collect suite, enables IT administrators to leverage one tool and a defined workflow process to systematically target, search and export data from both a live Exchange environment as well as from an Exchange or SharePoint backup. This feature broadens an organization’s collection parameters and provides the legal team with a more comprehensive and accurate data collection for ediscovery analysis and review.
