Historic Royal Palaces

Historic Royal Palaces (HRP) is an independent charity that looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, the Banqueting House, Kensington Palace and Kew Palace.

For HRP Email is a critical communication tool. The data and information stored within email messages is a valuable asset. It is important to secure them as there are historical records that need to be preserved. Retain strikes the perfect balance between cost effective storage and lightning fast retrieval of messaging data. A key factor for HRP was that the backend of Retain is driven by a SQL database, providing them with greater scalability and performance. “Retain’s single instance technology was an immediate attraction. We knew that this would allow HRP to keep a much higher proportion of its email data, without having to constantly request staff to clear down ‘un-needed’ mail,” says Rob Ellner - Network Manager at HRP

Benefits at a glance:

  • Comprehensive Search Tools

  • Data De-duplication

  • Centralized email retention

Customer Statement

"Now running for over a year at Historic Royal Palaces the speed of search within Retain even across many thousands of records is impressively fast"

Gudrun Sjödén

Gudrun Sjödén is a family-run fashion label. The company manages the production of clothing, accessories and home textiles in China, India, Greece, Portugal, Italy, Egypt, Turkey and Morocco.

To resolve existing issues regarding corrupt PST-Files and compliance regulations the company decided to install an archiving software. The PST Migrator of Retain quickly imported all local archives into Retain. Since Retain stores all data in one central location all users have direct access to their mails. The solution even enables them to easily restore single mails without the help of the administrator. Retain also makes it easy for the organisation to comply with IT laws and to fulfill all data management requirements. Retain’s policy-based archiving functions let the administrator define precisely which data will be archived. This makes it possible to adjust the solution to individual compliance requirements.

Benefits at a glance:

  • Easy Handling of PST Files

  • Compliance with Retention Laws

  • Quick Enduser Access

Customer Statement

"Retain helped us to quickly and efficiently address two of our major IT challenges: the handling of PST-Files and Compliance Regulations."
