The new investment results from Mimosa's marketplace success and is an endorsement of its visionary approach to information management. Launched just six months ago, Mimosa NearPoint has rapidly gained traction with customers across several vertical industries, including defense, financial services, insurance, education and retail. A comprehensive solution for e-mail data management, Mimosa NearPoint addresses archiving, search and compliance, as well as data protection and disaster recovery. It is based on a next-generation architecture that is ahead of the market in terms of scalability, ease of deployment and the fidelity of e-mail and other captured data.
Joe Horowitz, managing general partner of JAFCO Ventures said, "We were impressed with the overall quality of the company and its backers. The management team is very seasoned and the traction for its innovative products across a broad spectrum of customers has been very impressive. We believe Mimosa has the ability and the opportunity to be the market leader in the e-mail and data management space."
Brad O'Neill, senior analyst with the Taneja Group, said, "Mimosa's unique information management architecture sets it apart from other vendors. Mimosa has significant scalability advantages due to its Grid architecture and its approach to real-time application shadowing, which avoids inefficient MAPI data capture."
O'Neill continued, "Mimosa NearPoint provides a true framework to support multiple applications, ranging from Continuous Data Protection (CDP) and archiving to search and discovery, all sharing the same storage infrastructure. Mimosa NearPoint's architecture defines the model for next generation information management solutions."
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.
In this week's hand-picked assortment, researchers explore the path to more energy-efficient cloud datacenters, investigate new frameworks and runtime environments that are compatible with Windows Azure, and design a uniﬁed programming model for diverse data-intensive cloud computing paradigms.
