Computer giant Dell and security firm Symantec partnered on a new e-mail service that offers Microsoft Exchange with extensive archiving capabilities.
It includes a jointly engineered reference architecture with hardware and software, expanded services and sizing tools that provide a step-by-step blueprint to simplify data security, backup, recovery and archiving.
The platform is made up of Dell PowerEdge servers, PowerVault storage, Dell/EMC storage and Symantec products, including Symantec Mail Security 8200 Series, Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange, Symantec Enterprise Vault, and Backup Exec.
Dell services are tailored for each offering.
Dell also expanded assessment, design, implementation and training services to help integrate customers with Microsoft Exchange and Symantec services.
The new service is available in the United States and Europe for approximately $54,678 for a 500-seat modular backup and recovery solution, including hardware, software licenses and services. It includes Dell PowerEdge 1950s, PowerVault 110T and M1000, Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Microsoft Exchange 2003 and Symantec Backup Exec.
Secure Exchange will be sold by Dell and be supported and sustained by Dell and Symantec.
