Kroll Ontrack addresses externalised 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

London, 22 January, 2014 – Kroll Ontrack, the leading provider of data recovery and electronic discovery products and services, today announced the availability of Ontrack® PowerControls™ version 7.1. This enhancement allows IT administrators to access, search and restore externalised data from Remote BLOB Storage (RBS), including externalised 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 per cent of SharePoint storage space, and storing that content natively is extremely expensive and can result in poor performance,” explains Charmayne Simmonds, Business Development Manager at Kroll Ontrack. “As a result, many organisations leverage RBS solutions like Metalogix StoragePoint to externalise 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 externalised databases, including shredded SharePoint files, during the granular restore process and effectively locate and restore critical files.”

In addition to restoring externalised 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 organisation’s collection parameters and provides the legal team with a more comprehensive and accurate data collection for ediscovery analysis and review.
