EMC announced EMC SourceOne for Microsoft SharePoint, the newest addition to its SourceOne family of modular, integrated products for archiving, compliance, and e-discovery. SourceOne for SharePoint aims to make everything transparent to the end user while helping IT ensure that the right content is managed, retained, and disposed of according to internal policies and external regulations.
It offers the ability to automate the removal of SharePoint content from Microsoft SQL Server and archive it to EMC SourceOne. SharePoint content that is stored in the EMC SourceOne archive can be managed to comply with company policies and external regulations.
The solution is transparent to end users as it leverages Microsoft's external binary large object (BLOB) storage application programming interface to preserve native Office integrations, existing workflows, and explicit document links.
Also part of EMC’s SourceOne product family is EMC SourceOne eDiscovery – Kazeon, which simplifies e-discovery across multiple content types, automating the identification, collection, preservation, processing, analysis and review of content located in sites including SharePoint, Exchange, desktops, laptops, and network file systems.
SourceOne for Microsoft SharePoint will be generally available in June and will support SharePoint 2010, SharePoint Foundation, MOSS 2007, and WSS 3.0. EMC’s website tells more.
