Avalon Business Systems Introduces Archive Deletion


August 22, 2011

Avalon Business Systems has added a new capability to its ReduceMail Pro software suite. Allowing administrators to delete email in archive databases created using Lotus Notes's native archiving features, it’s called Archive Deletion.

By acquiring Archive Deletion, an administrator is no longer limited in the locations where he or she can delete email. Email can be deleted and managed as per organizational policy, whether it is in a regular mail database, an archive database created by ReduceMail Pro, or an archive created by Lotus Notes's native features.

Although limited in their scope, most Lotus Notes email deletion tools are effective at removing excess files and enforcing policies. Many of these tools cannot help administrators whose organizations use Lotus Notes's native archiving and are only able to affect email either in regular mail databases or in archives they create. Unless the administrator also implemented some kind of archiving reversal process that could be expensive and troublesome in and of itself, email inside “home-grown” archives would simply be impossible to access.

In order to implement an archiving reversal, an organization might even have to buy a separate tool. The Avalon Business Systems technology exists to allow a deletion tool access to email in Lotus Notes's native archives. By including the ability to delete email in Lotus Notes's native archives as an optional feature of ReduceMail Pro Delete and ReduceMail Pro Archive, called Archive Deletion, Avalon Business Systems did just that, the company stated in a press release.

In 2010, The Radicati Group’s research titled “IBM Lotus Notes/Domino Market Analysis, 2010-2014” gave a detailed analysis of the market for IBM Lotus Domino, IBM Lotus Notes, and IBM LotusLive. The research includes market share, installed base by version and also breakouts by vertical industry, business size, and region. The report indicates that by the end of 2010, IBM Lotus Domino will have an installed base of 192 million on-premise and hosted mailboxes.
